About Rosary Matriculation School
The Institute of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary was founded in 1877 by Mary of the Passion (Helen de Chappotin) at Ootacamund, Tamilnadu - an International Religious Congregation of women comprising 78 nationalities spread over 76 countries in the five Continents of the world. We discover Christ’s message of Love through our life of prayer and work and transmit this to our brothers and sisters by our varied activities. Being Missionaries like Francis of Assisi, our preference is to work for the poor and the marginalized, whoever they may be, to create a more just and human society.
One of our major activities in India is providing formal education at all levels. Being a minority in the country all our educational Institutions given preference to students belonging to the Catholic community; others are also admitted irrespective of caste and creed.

An atmosphere of joyous freedom, conducive to personality development and fulfilment through self-control and self direction, leads to spontaneous involvement of all pupils in the organisation and discipline of the school. This is the essence of the House system. Every child from Std. I upwards is allocated to one of the 4 Houses. This gives a sense of identity, and helps a child develop the finer points of loyality, co-operation and a team spirit. High standards are also maintained by the stimulation of healthy competition between the Houses. Every pupil is expected to play her part to the full. All members of the Staff are fully involved in the educative activities of the School. Close co-operation between home and school has been one of the dynamic influences in the development of this type of education.
