Ida Scudder Junior School
Ida Scudder School had a humble beginning in the year 1969 under the prayerful initiation of eminent doctors of Christian Medical College, Vellore. The motto of the school is ‘Lighted to Lighten’. Ten years later in 1979, the Ida Scudder Junior School came into existence. The first Head Mistress was Mrs. Susan Philip. Her faithful prayers and nurturing care ensured that the fledgling Junior School flourished.
Ida Scudder Junior School is currently home to 1495 students and 62 teachers. At present, it is being headed by Mrs. Leela Sudhakar and her two able assistants Mrs. Daphne Sathish & Mr. Sampath. As a Christ centered learning community, the school has a passion for developing the God given gifts bestowed on each member of its community. Morning assemblies help inculcate Christian principles and instill moral values. The teaching methodology adopted by the teachers prepare our children to excel both intellectually and emotionally. Few of the teachers have also joined hands to provide support for students with special educational needs. A well stocked library and provision for art, craft, music and sports lessons ensure the overall personal development of each individual child. Inter – house activities, sports days and variety entertainments provide opportunities for our students to develop and show case their talents. Apart from these, Republic day, Founders day, Teachers day, Independence day, Children’s day and Christmas are celebrated with enthusiasm leaving behind lots of memories to cherish. Competitive exams such as ASSET, ICAS, Olympiads, Indian Talent etc are also held at the school and our children have bagged many prizes.
We aim to work with each child and nurture their unique set of talents in a happy and supportive environment rooted in a genuine spirit of care which is present in a Christian family. We believe our children will be ‘Lighted to Lighten’.
But those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength, They will soar on wings like eagles;
