The legacy of St. Stephen’s School started in the year 1971 under the aegis of the Diocese of Barrackpore, Church of North India recognizing the Church’s mission of imparting quality education at an affordable cost to the common masses. The premises of St. Stephen’s Church, Dum Dum was chosen by the Diocese to set up the school which, back then, only had a few students and a handful of teachers who dedicated themselves to the cause of the Diocese. Since then the school has never looked back and has proven itself time and again to be the largest and the best known school in the suburb of North Kolkata.
In 1971 there was St. Stephens’s School, Dum Dum and today in 2012 St. Stephen’s School, Dum Dum stands tall along with 18 of her branches of the school spread across South Bengal and Chattisgarh and Odisha with many more to come in the near future. This co-education English Medium School is unquestionably a notch above the rest when it comes to imparting quality education right from Nursery to Standard XII and it strives to follow and make the students aware of the latest syllabus prescribed by the council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi.
St. Stephen’s School, having a Christian Foundation, is a Religious Minority educational Institution within the meaning of Article 30 of the Constitution of India.
