HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL


Christ School, a premier educational institution in Bangalore, blossomed out of the educational vision of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, the first indigenous religious congregation, WHICH founded at Mannanam, Kerala, India, on 11 May 183, by St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the great educationalist and social reformer.

Christ school was founded in June 1984, with about hundred students and six teachers. The then Rector of Dharmaram College, Rev. Fr. Justin Koyipuram blessed the school building on 3rd June 1984 in the presence of parents and well-wishers.

The idea of a school, with reference to the request by the general public, especially the Christian minority of the locality, was approved by the governing body meeting of Christ Educational Society held on 7th September 1983 at Dharmaram College. The matter was entrusted to Rev. Fr. Benedict CMI and Rev. Fr. John Marius CMI. Their hard work paved the way for the development of the school into an outstanding institution. The first SSLC batch of 41 students came out in flying colours in March 1990 under the able guidance of the founding Principal Rev. Fr. John Marius CMI.

The ICSE section was started in 2007 by the then Principal Rev. Fr. Joseph Rathapallil CMI. The school began to function as two separate sections from May 2013 shifting the state syllabus section to Dharmaram campus under the leadership of Rev. Fr. Augustine Paimpallil CMI as its Principal. The ICSE section continued under the Principal ship of Rev. Fr. Shaju Varghese CMI.

A new section which is proposed to be affiliated to CBSE board was begun in June 2017, under the Principalship of Rev. Fr. Augustine Paimpallil CMI, Rev. Dr. Martin Mallathu CMI led Christ School from May 2018 to March 2020. Rev. Fr. Sebastian Elanjickal assumed the office of the Principal in September 2020.
