The last four decades have witnessed a remarkable transformation in the educational status of Muslims in Kerala, supposedly the most backward in education. The driving force behind this effort has been THE MUSLIM EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY (REGD.) . M.E.S, the biggest educational agency of the Muslim community in India having thousands of life members and hundreds of institutions.
The movement started under the great leadership of late Dr. P.K. Abdul Ghafoor in 1964 at Calicut was supported by a large number of professionals and businessmen and in a short span of time, it spread to all Districts, Taluks and even at the Panchayats in Kerala, other parts of India and abroad and still the organisation is growing fast, extending its services further to reach every nook and corner of the state.
An International School, established in 1974, M.E.S. RAJA is the oldest Residential school in Malabar region, having a cosmopolitan culture, affiliated to CBSE, imparting education to boys and girls from KG to XII standard hailing from Bihar, U.P, Karnataka, Lakshadweep, Delhi, Manipur, Nepal & Gulf countries besides Keralites.

Our aim is to impart quality education regardless of caste, class, creed, race or gender. Great emphasis is given to formation of character, self-confidence, co-operation, leadership and responsibility.
