Sanjos Metropolitan School (SMS) is an educational venture of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Tellicherry. One may doubt the need of yet another school at a time when the Government is closing down schools. Our answer is that Sanjos Metropolitan School is not just another school in Tellicherry but a unique school providing educational and all other facilities for the integral development of the students. Many parents were insisting on starting a school by the Archdiocese, seeing the high academic standards maintained by other institutions of the Archdiocese such as Nirmalagiri College, Vimal Jyothi Engineering College Chemperi, Self financing Arts & Science Colleges at Alakode and Paisakary, 10 Higher Secondary Schools, 24 High Schools and 55 Primary Schools spread over Kannur and Kasaragod districts. Now, we have undertaken this venture as a part of fulfilling the church’s social commitment and responsibility. It is an English Medium co-education school, following CBSE syllabus with emphasis on the character formation of the children.
Sanjos Metropolitan School was inaugurated by His Grace Mar George Valiamattam, Archbishop of Tellicherry on 10th June 2002. Very Rev. Fr. Mathew Palamattam as Manager and Administrator and Rev. Sister Rosemary SAB as Principal were appointed on the same day.
