About us

Who We Are

Zeal International School, Mattanur was established in 2012 (under the name Malabar English School till 14th Jan 2023). Heritage charitable and Educational Trust took over the school in 2013 and shifted to the new spacious and Eco-friendly campus in 2014. It is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education New Delhi and duly recognized by Department of Education, Govt. of Kerala.
Ever since our management took over the reins of the school it has been functioning uniquely.

Zeal International School opens its gate at Mattanur for boys and girls to a world of futuristic education with modern Teaching methodology and Hi-Tech classrooms, wi-fi zones, Theatre, well-stocked library and laboratories, play-ground, Turf, cycle tracks, acupressure hut etc, which ensures academic excellence, physical fitness, spiritual and cultural enlightenment.

Zeal International has become pro-active in embracing technology with a commitment to expose our students to the digital world to support lifelong learning skills.

Zeal International School believes that love for education should be developed in a child in the initial years and conditions should be created for them to pursue a positive approach in life.
The ethos of the school not only promotes each child to realise his potentials and uniqueness, it also nurtures our students to practice empathy towards people and environment.
Depth and variety are added to each student’s life by the school’s traditions and accessibility to a broad curriculum.
A unidirectional teaching method is being increasingly substituted by a multidirectional group workshop method. Here the teacher becomes the group coordinator initiating work, nurturing students without expression is emphasized upon. Home assignments are not a carry-over of class work but oriented towards developing individual talents.
There is openness and room for parents to participate in the welfare and growth of their wards. Zeal International School provides space for children to think, express, exhibit their skills and also empower them to negotiate several issues that confront them – the teacher being a facilitator. Faculty at ZIS is highly dedicated, globally exposed and well-experienced to guide the destiny of the younger generation.

Chairman's Message

Zeal International School, Mattanur is a comprehensive, contemporary learning community, committed to provide world class education , making it a one-of-a-kind experience. We enable every child to follow the right trail to achieve their full potential.

Our policy is not to force feed the child with the lessons of a textbook, but rather invoking in them the interest and inborn curiosity which subsequently helps them develop an affinity to the same and go about exploring the subjects with utmost interest.

Children are not empty vessels, but mighty reservoirs of endless possibilities. Education is currently confined to syllabus-based studying of different subjects, whereas the need of the hour is an overall development of a child by making learning an experience through various interaction with the peers, the pedagogues and nature which broadens the knowledge spectrum too. To equip them in this endeavour a balanced development of physical and mental aspects is necessary. And this is where the role of our well trained teachers and the whole hearted support of parents come to play.

Education is a journey, not a race. Grooming is time consuming but the fruits of success makes it deserving. Here, we provide all the possible facilities for the all-round development of students. Children are our future and they must be taught how to think not what to think which correlates with our school’s motto “Produce the leaders”. To achieve this, we focus on following the aspects:

• Prevailing learning experiences;
• International school curriculum;
• Global awareness
• Overall development
• Interactive & intuitive learning
• Communicative excellence
• World class infrastructure & eco-friendly campus
• Developing an informed/involved community.

Still if there are any lingering concerns regarding your child’s progress or welfare, please remember that we are open to creative feedbacks and inputs. Every parent in the society should consider this as an apt opportunity for their child’s future and be fully convinced by visiting our noble institution. Am sure you will be overwhelmed to see what we cater to students here, consider this a warm invite on my behalf.

Our emphasis to create leaders and prodigies require your sincere support and prayers. The coordinated efforts would definitely work wonders.

With warm regards,
Dr.T P Muhammed

Principal's Message

“Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations”.

Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. School aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life.

Our approaches to learning are child centric activity based learning and inculcating a scientific temper and a spirit of free enquiry. In our curriculum the student is the primary focus and each child is involved in the learning process. We are constantly improving our teaching methodology so that it turns learning into combination of classroom study, research and scientific discovery.

The school is striving hard to make the best possible efforts to inculcate strong values combining with academics and extra-curricular activities in the children. Converting every individual into a self-reliant and independent citizen, the school provides an amalgam of scholastic and co-scholastic activities. The school is devoted to prepare the students for life, groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We constantly endeavor to live up to this ideology and inculcate this into everything we do, with the aim to ensure that the children grow to their full potential, while constantly being groomed to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life.
