Excel was founded in the small town of Thiruvattar in the late 1990s by a family of two parents. Wanting to give the best education they never received, Dr. Sree Kumar, our Chairman and Mrs. Brinda Sreekumar, our Managing Director set out to revolutionise education in rural Kanyakumari. The first classes were held in a converted barn, with only three students in attendance. Among the first ever batch of students was Ms. Ashika Sreekumar, the daughter of our founders and the current Director of Excel Global School, Chennai.
Over the next couple years, the school grew steadily as more and more families moved to the area and enrolled their children. By the the early 2000s, the school had outgrown the barn and was moved to a new, larger building on the within the same town of Thiruvattar.
In the years that followed, the school continued to expand, adding new classrooms, sports facilities, and extracurricular activities. By 2010, the school had become one of the top educational institutions in the region, with a diverse student body of over 3,000 students. Today, the school is known for its excellent academic programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and dedicated teachers and staff, all of whom are committed to providing a top-quality education to every student.
