Faculty that was specially qualified was further trained to impart education to the visually challenged by leveraging technology. The efforts and the commitments of the Teachers have paid off with the school achieving almost 100% results in the class X and XII board exams since 1995. The School follows the same syllabus as institutions for sighted children. It is only the method of instruction and mode of examination that varies with students writing their board exams with the help of scribes.
More than two decades ago when IAB Higher Secondary School was set up it was on a small scale with just a handful of students. Today it is the only co-educational higher secondary school of its kind in Tamil Nadu and boasts of well-equipped classrooms, smart computer labs, libraries and impressive playground. The generous support of Help the Blind Foundation, Hong Kong, has facilitated the school’s development. The school reaches out to the needy by providing free education to 130 students from middle to higher secondary level.
Higher Secondary Special School
In June 1992, IAB took its first step towards its mission of making the visually challenged independent by setting up the IAB Higher Secondary School.
IAB has always believed that the visually challenged should enjoy equal opportunity. In line with this vision it was important to provide them with ready access to information. This led to the establishment of a well-equipped Braille and Audio Library in 1995.
IAB has always believed in the holistic development of the visually challenged. Treating them on par with sighted individuals, IAB has ensured that on its campus academics goes hand-in-hand with extra-curricular activities.
