Emmanuel’s Higher Secondary School, Kothanalloor had its seminal form in the Mudappa vernacular school that was started in 1919. It was the outpouring of a deep vision in the minds of certain people who believed firmly in the old saying “Education is the most important of all wealth”. Emmanuel's has since been progressing through the trail blazed initially and is now a prominent center of learning attracting students from far and wide. It hosts well over 2500 students and employs more than 80 staff. The school has made recently a quantum leap in the direction of new digital technologies and state of the art infrastructure facilities and raising the school in the process to one of the most prominent schools in the entire diocese of Palai both in the academic level and extra-curricular activities.
