St. Joseph's Indian High School

School emblem

St. Joseph's Indian High School is a school in Bengalooru, India. It was founded in 1904 by the Jesuit priests of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The school held its platinum jubilee celebrations in 1979 and film actress Nutan sang at the celebrations called Nutan Musical Nite. It held its centenary celebrations in 2004 when Fr. Melvin Pinto was the Principal.

A Pre-University college - St. Joseph's Indian Composite Pre-University College - was started in 2006. Rev. Fr. L. Froger was the first Rector of the school and Rev. Fr. L. Blaise was the first Principal of the school. Fr. Louis Gilbert Saldanha was the Principal of the school from 2007 to 2011. The Rector of the institution was Fr. Scotus Fernandez, who retired in 2009. Now, Fr. Anil D'Mello is the Rector. The institution is located at a prime location in the city and moved to the present location in 1971. After the centenary year celebrations in 2004, the school has had a lot of new blocks. The major events held are the sports day and the cultural fest "Prerana".

The institution consists mainly of the high school, the middle school, the pre-university college and the community college. CAD coaching is also undertaken. The high school has twenty one classes with thirty five students in the 'A' sections and seventy and odd students in the other six sections. The school has an active student's council headed by the Vice-Principal, Mr. Gnanaprakash and Mr. Paul Vincent, the Sports Secretary. It is never fair to forget Fr.Nobert D'souza and Fr.Sunith Prabhu who stood at the footing to create eminent personalities.
