St. Francis Convent School is a branch of the Institute of the Franciscan Clarist
Sisters of the Most Blessed Sacrament. The Institute, a religious society was founded
by venerable Mother Seraphina, a great educationist, in Italy. The aim of the society
is to educate the youth and care for the destitute. The school was opened on 14
January 1957, with five tiny children, on the convent verandah. As days passed by,
the request for admission was so great that accommodation became a problem. Hence,
on 10 October 1961 the foundation stone was laid for the school building. In the
foundation year the K.G. Section became a co-educational primary school. In 1977,
Class VI was added. After a decade it became a junior high school. In 1994 the school
got No Objection certificate from the State Govt. to upgrade it to a high school
and in 1995 the school got affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education.
The first batch of class X appeared for the board examination in the year 1997.
