Imam Shafi (Rah) Matriculation Higher Secondary School is a Muslim Minority School run by the Adirampattinam Educational Trust in this Coastal town situated about 365 KM south of Chennai, the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu. This School had first been started as a Nursery and Primary School with just 9 students on its rolls. Owing to the untiring efforts of the management, the school was upgraded as a Matriculation School in 1985, having obtained the Recognition order of the Tamil Nadu Government. In 1997, the school was elevated to the status of a Matriculation Higher Secondary School.

After the conduct of two Educational Awareness Conferences way back in 1988 and again in 1999 by our Honourable Secretary and Correspondent Haji M.S.Tajudeen (sahib), the inspired parents took more interest in educating the children . The Strength of the school has now risen to 1785. With the 67 qualified and trained faculty , the school is more involved in imparting standard education through the medium of English and the advance teaching - learning technology. 

Our school children are exposed to the learning of different languages like Tamil, Arabic, English, Hindi and Urdu. The Management, under the leadership and guidance of Haji M.S.Tajudeen (sahib), is quite conscious of its role in upgrading the status of the school with all the required infrastructure, advance training - teaching technology and has been taking all efforts possible to utilize the services of experts from outside to enhance the quality of education and streamline administration.
