The school is founded on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the master teacher who promulgated the values of love and service to humanity. The Congregation of the Missionary Brothers of St. Francis of Assisi (CMSF), an International Society of Religious Brothers was founded in 1901 in India by late Rev. Bro. Paulus Moritz of Germany. The Congregation conducts more than forty schools spread across twenty states, each of which aims to be centre of excellence.
St. Francis School (ICSE) was established in the year 2000. The school is set amidst the tranquility of Koramangala, Bangalore. With its well manicured garden and calmness, it provides a perfect learning environment to stimulate higher levels of thinking and pursue their cherished dreams.
We cater to classes from Nursery to Std X and follow the ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) syllabus. We have 100% results in the ICSE Board examinations.
We attribute our success to the Providence of God, the vision and charisma of the management, commitment of the teachers and all staff, enthusiasm of the disciplined students and the encouragement and support of the parents.
What began as a simple endeavor is now making a tremendous progress in the field of education. The school, now, has grown in to a huge ‘family’ of more than 1450 students and 87 dedicated staff which includes 65 teaching staff, as of 2014-15. The school got its permanent affiliation to the ICSE board in the year 2011. It has travelled very little and has a long way to go. Trusting constantly in the providence of God and working hand in hand with parents and well wishers, we try to shape and mould the destiny of our nation. May our strivings produce abundant fruits.
