School History

The school that was started in 1880 at No. 2 Alexandra Street with the aim to provide schooling for English speaking Methodist children, went through much hardship during the early years, plagued with paucity of funds and dwindling strength of children. It was on the brink of closure, when Mr. John Baldwin gifted three thousand dollars to acquire land and buildings and keep it from closing.

The school has seen steady progress in student strength which stands at five thousand today and expansion in terms of infrastructure and dedicated staff that help the school move forward, imparting quality Christian education.
In retrospect, the humble beginning of the Institution in 1880 with few students and minimum facilities, stands in stark contrast to its present stature and dignity, having global perspective and meeting the demands of specialization in the methods of acquiring knowledge, with a view to improving the standard and quality of life, redefining the role of education.

Today, the institution is a brilliant canvas of many shades and hues. It is certainly not the monotonous regularity of a stagnant social tradition. For us, it is a continuous and uninterrupted move towards a dynamic and vibrant vision, which keeps us alive with new ideas, new avenues and new in roads.

The Institution is now a symbol of the triumph of tradition and individual talent, the fruit of loyalty and service, righteousness and truth emanating from the warm, God-fearing heart of John Baldwin and other noble souls that led to its phenomenal growth. Today, it stands as the tallest landmark of quality education in the city.
