St. Andrew’s High School 

This School is situated on ground floor of the building where St. Andrew's Marathi Church is held at 3, Meghraj Sethi Marg, Agripada (Byculla). When the School was started by Rev. Laxman Hari in 1916 it had primary Classes for Gujarati Medium students. Since the strength of Students in the Gujarati Medium School dwindled it was decided to close down the Gujarati Medium School and start English medium K.G. Classes in the year 1966. Gradually additional classes were added up to 4th Standard and this Primary Section was recognised by the Bombay Municipal Corporation. 

Later on Additional Classes were added up to 7th Standard in the year 1990. It was noticed that many students left because it was not fully established High School. The School Committee then decided to extend the classes up to 10th Standard in the year 1998. The School is recognised by the Education Department of Government of Maharashtra. The first batch of S.S.C students was sent in the year 2002. The School is a coeducational Institute catering mostly to the low income group residing in Agripada. 

There are about 600 children on the roll and classes are held in shift system. There are 8 teachers employed in the Secondary Section, 5 teachers in the Primary Section, 2 teachers in K.G. Section and the office staff.

The School is managed under the aegis of The B.D.T.A Pvt. Ltd. The Trust Association is looking after expenses incurred in the maintenance of the School building as well as furniture and other requirements of the School.
