St. Michael’s Higher secondary School, which is perched in the heart of Coimbatore city, has been an educational institution of the par excellence since it was founded by the highly devoted and dedicated Paris Missionaries in 1860.. It is now in the close vicinity of the Diocese of Coimbatore. It is comfortably situated between the Cathedral and the Railway Station. At the beginning, it only served the families Anglo-Indians and European Communities, because the Indian families were unaware of the importance of educating their children. The parents were also not enthusiastic about enrolling their children in the schools. So the Paris Missionaries and the teachers had to hunt for the students in the neighborhood. There was a big pond close to the school and the students swam across it and escaped when forced to come to school. Imparting education was a difficult task for the Paris Missionaries to the illiterate Indian society.
