At the time when V.M.J.School was started, if anyone wanted to give the best education to their children, they had to send them to hill stations like Ooty or Yercaud, which only the affluent could afford. The Trust decided to start a school on par with those schools in the hill stations at an affordable cost. It was the seed sown in 1976 that has now grown into a full- fledged tree bearing fragrant flowers and nutritious fruits. The school was named in honour of ThiruT.S.M Manickam Nadar-Thirumathi Janaki Ammal, who donated their properties for the welfare of the school.

      We are one of the pioneers to take up the ICSE syllabus. We began with 27 students at the primary level in 1976. The School grew to secondary level and was further upgraded to Higher Secondary status in June 1996. In 2013, we introduced the ISC Stream also at the Higher Level keeping in focus the demands and the challenges of the new generation. Now the school has strength of about 840 students.
