Lalaji Memorial Omega International School Chennai, set in a serene, green, 22 acre campus, provides a unique environment for both day-scholars and boarders. We are the only school in Chennai to offer a wide range of national and international curricula.

  • Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (Cambridge)
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)
  • Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)
  • National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS)

Our Value Based Spiritual Education and Life Skills Activities programs are, together, the foundation on which the children's education is built. The school places a lot of emphasis on Humanities and Arts and Crafts. With an enthusiastic involvement in a wide variety of sports and games offered, our students participate at the District and State level Cricket tournaments and have been to the Nationals in girls and boys soccer. A few boys are now playing at the junior level with the Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC. We are the only High School to be recognised as a UN Academic Impact Member School, which is normally offered only to Universities.

Thinkers & Risk Takers

Students are encouraged to showcase their innate thinking and creative abilities. The research and analyses undertaken for their Extended Essays is a true test of their commitment to make a difference. They are given ample opportunities and provided with the resources they need to explore their research. Students have initiated and now manage specialised clubs for Robotics & Astronomy. We are one of the first schools in the region to set up a Government initiated Incubation Centre - the Atal Tinkering Lab.

  • Using our laboratories, a student was able to undertake a research project to identify possible carcinogenic elements in packaged local milk.
  • Similarly, students who wanted to understand the local environment around the school were able to test the waste water from an adjoining canal, leading them to make impactful decisions. The once derelict canal is now becoming a sustainable ecosystem with many indigenous species of flora and fauna. This project is part of the school's initiative with UN Academic Impact.
  • Another student was the only finalist from India at The Global Breakthrough Junior Challenge - a competition for students to inspire creative thinking about Science.

Resources

  • The IBDP team comprises of well trained and dedicated facilitators, who ably guide each student through the demanding requirements of the program. We regularly engage with subject matter experts to further enhance students' knowledge and awareness, which helps them with their extended essays in Theory of Knowledge.
  • Our library with over 32,000 books, collection of audio and e-books also has numerous IB authorized journals. Students have access to our museum exhibits and our pictorial biodiversity record of over 2000 different reptiles, amphibians and birds.
  • We have one of the largest faculties in Fine Arts, Performing Arts & Visual Arts. With a strong networking presence between our school and other local resources, our students and facilitators are regularly involved in exchange programs.
  • We are a Naviance enabled school. Naviance is provided free of cost to students from Grade 9. Apart from this, students get to interact directly with over 30 University representatives from US & UK. These initiatives, combined with their performance, have seen our students go to prestigious Universities - Imperial College, London, Brown University, University of Texas at Austin and University of California, Berkley, to name a few.

Creativity, Activity & Service

Our students are actively engaged in a variety of social integration programs.

  • Students participated in the Model United Nations Conferences at Port Blair and New York and presented resolutions for key issues. Their debating skills won them 'Best Delegate' awards amongst other recognitions.
  • Our school has a unique distinction of being the only institution from India to participate in the UN Student Leadership Conferences on Development six years running, and have, as a result, been endowed with the responsibility of identifying a topic for next year's debate.
  • Students operate the school's paper recycling plant, to convert waste paper on campus into modern office stationery & souvenirs, which are available for sale.
  • Mural paintings done by IBDP students now stand at the school's main building, as witness to their intellectual and emotional balance and open-mindedness.
  • Students champion Kalanjali - an annual event to showcase India’s cultural heritage to enthusiasts of the performance arts in the city. This event, comprising of workshops and concerts, are completely managed by students, and gives them event management skills beyond anything that they would normally receive at any school.
  • Active involvement in social empowerment programs such as the International Award for Young People.
