The foundation stone was laid in 1989, by the Dist. Collector Shri. K.R. Rajan. The building was inaugurated on 2nd July 1989 by His Highness Marthanda Varma Elyaraja. The foundation stone for the 2nd block was laid on the same day by His Eminence Antony Cardinal Padiyara. Smt. Ammini Samuel was appointed as the Principal. Adarsha’s office was situated at Palarivattom.

The school is located at Kakkanad, about 1.5 Km. from the Civil Station adjacent to CSEZ. The place is accessible from Ernakulam, Edapally, Kalamassery and Aluva.

A public trust had already been formed for the successful conduct of this venture.

A play school and a daycare centre were started in the same year. The computer course with 3 computers and a printer was started. The K.G.Section was started with 62 students and 6 staff members.

Adarsha become a full -fledged school and the school was affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education and enrolled in the Sahodaya Association of Schools.

From a mere 53 students the school has grown in strength and reputation. There are 2388 students on roll and 146 teaching and non-teaching staff this academic year, with Sri K Suresh as the Principal Bhavan’s Adarsha Vidyalaya, like all other Bhavan’s schools in Kochi, is now a household name not only for its academic excellence but also for its extra curricular and life-skill activities.
