The story of the school begins in 1964 when a play school was started with a thatched roof and 18 students under it. It was named after Anita, a little girl who spent her short life on the Balar Kalvi Nilayam campus.
Ms. Rose Viswasam, as one of the founding members, carefully nurtured the school in its early years. Ms. Jesudian was the first Correspondent and supervisor of Anita Methodist School. She was succeeded by Ms. Johnson who framed the play school curriculum. Then, Ms. Baldwin took over as the next Principal. Our first teacher was Mrs. Light Ebenezer.
In the year 1988, Mrs. R Michael took over as Principal, followed by Dr. Sujatha Ross in the year 2001.
Dr. Joan Elango is the current Principal of Anita Methodist School.
