What you see – Nestled in the crowded Chirag Ali Lane behind Methodist Complex, is Little Flower High School. This school is a missionary educational institution with classes from lower kindergarten to 10th class. It is a part of the All Saints and St. Paul’s trio. The institution conducts its classes as per the syllabus of the state (SSC).
Little Flower High School was established in July 1953. The school boasts of producing cricketers such as VVS Laxman and Arshad Ayub and also the Speaker of the AP Assembly, Suresh Reddy. The once all boys’ school became a co-educational institution along with its brother institutions in 1998.
What you get – The education system here is inclusive and so includes literary, cultural and sports activities too. In fact, the Grade Point Average (students are graded weekly) is calculated for every student taking into consideration the all round prowess. Students are fined for untidy uniforms to make them realize the importance of cleanliness. The uniform comprises khaki trousers and a white shirt for boys and khaki pinafore with white shirt for girls.
The school also has various clubs for sports, computers, chess, literature, drama, social science, environmental awareness and quiz. Students are free to make their choice and these clubs are included in the timetable. The school does not have a huge playground like All Saints. It, however, has enough space to accommodate volleyball courts, a dining hall, state-of-the-art computer lab, physics and chemistry lab and a very well stocked literature library.
Apparently, this was one of the first schools to provide Internet access to its students in the city. Class strength varies between 40 and 50 students.
They have about four active school buses which transport hundreds of students’ everyday. Since it is in a central location, public transport has never been an issue. At times though, the traffic is heavy making negotiation difficult.
Our verdict – The school believes in using technology for effectiveness. Therefore, they even have a surveillance system in the examination halls to keep cheating at bay. A detailed analysis of the child’s progress is posted to the parents every month to monitor performance. Since the school has a reputation for excellence it is very difficult to get admission here. The number of students per class is slightly higher than its new counterparts.
