The Choice School

The Choice School Thiruvalla is one-step towards the realization of the dream of Mr. Jose Thomas to spread quality education beyond Cochin in Kerala. It was his conscious endeavour to provide a nature-friendly learning environment to our students with world-class facilities. Located in Manthanam, Kerala, on a serene 7.5-acre campus, the Choice School at Thiruvalla is a game-changer in school architecture in India. It won the Architizer A+ Award and was voted as the best designed educational project in the world in 2016.

The unique school building comprises of administrative wing, school hostel, cafeteria, spacious and well-equipped classrooms, library (the Choice Athenaeum), laboratories, special learning spaces, art room, learning lab, recreational room, grand walkways and Atrium (a unique butterfly shaped auditorium) besides the sports facilities for football, basketball, badminton and other games.

At Choice, we aspire to develop young and fearless minds and prepare them to thrive in dynamic situations. We encourage them to explore, be curious, imagine and innovate in an intellectual environment that offers a range of interdisciplinary curricular and co-curricular activities.

Principal's Message

The Choice School in Thiruvalla is committed to inculcate in each student, the core values required to succeed in life with focus on intellect, creativity, inclusivity and character. The success of our school lies in the dynamic student-teacher relationship. We offer a creative and value-based curriculum, which gives equal opportunity for every student to pursue personal and academic excellence. We are therefore committed to recruiting and retaining faculty who are leaders in their fields and are skilled in bringing out the very best in each student, every day. All this together makes The Choice School, the best school in Kerala.

The Choice School was founded in 1991 by Mr. Jose Thomas, a visionary, who opened the School with a handful of students in Cochin. With a steadfast determination to take advantage of all the cultural opportunities that Kerala has to offer, Mr. Jose Thomas’s aspirations for his burgeoning school stand true today, decades later. The Choice School has been in the forefront, awakening minds with high standards of academic and co-curricular achievements. Our students have a wealth of programmes that we believe will enrich their appreciation of the arts, music, physical well – being, science and sports.


Thiruvalla is one of the most exciting towns in which to acquire an education, and today’s students, like those who went before, make this historical town their extended classroom, seizing advantage of its abundance of history, science, heritage, sports and culture. The Choice School Thiruvalla is the ideal seedbed for upraising tomorrow’s innovators, explorers, thinkers, collaborators and communicators. It has been four years since we started this great school in this remarkable historical town of Thiruvalla.

At the Choice School, the pursuit of Excellence is a way of life – a habit. Our school is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn and a community of dynamic and dedicated staff members who are committed to providing the students with quality education through our core concepts of Knowledge, Character and Health and the results of which are reflected in the overall excellence in the students. As Rabindranath Tagore aptly puts it, “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence”. We are also blessed with motivating and happy parents too.

All this, along with an environment conducive to learning, a goal to empower the students into self – reliant leaders of tomorrow and a social commitment to the less fortunate, is what makes The Choice School, a temple of learning.

In this fast changing world, serving the needs of the students in our care is at the heart of everything we do. The school’s program combines nurture of the individual with engaging learning experiences in a supportive and involved community. We embrace our core values of Knowledge, Character and Health. At The Choice School, we are dedicated to participating fully in life within the School, and making a difference in the world beyond. Choiceans are constantly involved in the service of others; our children are eager to move out of their comfort zones to help those in local neighbourhoods and across the globe. And when it’s time to leave our school, Choiceans go out into the world fully equipped for the challenges that lie ahead, and with a passion for lifelong learning deep-rooted in their mind-set.

Families who join the Choice community recollect their time here with deep gratitude for the enduring friendships made, the host of memories treasured, and the outstanding education delivered by beloved teachers. “The Choice” is not just a school; it is a community of learners and leaders, drivers and dreamers. I invite you to explore our website and discover the wealth of experience we offer. Please feel free to walk into our school at your convenience.
