That Abacus is 25 years 'young' calls for great celebrations. For me it was lovely to be a part of a growing school from RA Puram to Adyar to Perungudi. Setting up environments and learning so many details and be able to work with so many lovely children and adults have been an awesome yet fulfilling experience. I wish Abacus with all my heart and I am sure it will always grow from strength to strength.

parent school meetings

Open House

Open houseOne evening each week is allotted for parents to meet the teachers if they wish to discuss their children or share any concerns.

If an urgent need arises, parents can make an appointment with the Principal through the office. The school will also be happy to put parents in touch with other educators or professional consultants if required.

Primary & Elementary Thursdays from 3.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m.
Secondary & Higher Secondary Parents may call the school office and make appointments to meet teachers.

Parent School Group Meetings
