Mrs.Ellen Sharma Memorial Nursery & Primary School was started during 1977-79 in memory of late Mrs.Ellen Sharma , mother of our beloved founder Miss.Sakunthala Sharma. Mrs.Ellen Sharma always thought of children as her world and she strongly believed that Education can be the one and only greatest gift that can be given to a child.Dr.Venkatesh Narayan Sharma dreamt of a school as a beautiful garden filled with blooming flowers who were children , smiling and learning in an environment filled with happiness that made them forget the harsh realities of life. This school has an important place in the history of this locality as one of the first schools started in karapakkam with the noble vision of providing formal education to the children.

The school’s success also paved the way for its sister concern in  Sholinganallur  to take shape, grow and evolve subsequently that has completed 25 glorious years and is growing stronger.
