Cuomo Foundation’s second educational compound in Tamil Nadu, India, the RC Higher Secondary School, Sendivakkam, was built in 2005. This high school has now been named “Alfredo Cuomo Higher Secondary School », in memory of the Founder of our philanthropic organisation, according to the will of whom the school was built in Sendivakkam at a time when this rural area had serious shortcomings in terms of education. The official acknowledgement was issued on April 12, 2019 by Chennai’s Tamil Nadu School Director Procedures.
Comprising of all the necessities required for a demanding and quality education, the school has a capacity of 750 students. Alongside its large classrooms, it boasts a library, computer facilities as well as laboratories for biology, chemistry and physics. Teaching is delivered both in Tamil and English, depending on the subjects.
