This school was started in 1961 after co-education was removed from Raja Muthiah Higher Secondary School, which is also run by the same management.
Rani Meyyammai Girls School functioned in the same campus and later moved to its present premises on R K Math Road in 1964.
In the early days, classes were taken in thatched and asbestos-roofed rooms that slowly developed into concrete structures. The school follows the State Boars syllabus.
