The RSK Higher Secondary School
, located in the premises of BHEL Township, 14 Kms to the east of Tiruchirapalli, in Tamil Nadu, India is one of the famous schools in Trichy. The school was founded in 1964 - the year BHEL was incorporated - as a means for providing quality education for the children of the company's employees; subsequently, the school opened to students not connected to the BHEL as well. Earlier, known as Boiler Plant Higher Secondary School, the school was re-named as R.S. Krishnan Higher Secondary School in fond remembrance of the first Executive Director of BHEL Late Mr. R.S. Krishnan in 1968 after his death. The School management passed on from the Montfort Brothers to the Singapore-based Global Indian Education Foundation, which ran the school for 5 years from 2006 till 2010, when the Management changed to KKR's Gowtham Educational Institutions.

The School follows the Central Board Of Secondary Education, Delhi, syllabus.
