List of Schools in Kalimpong

This page contains a list of schools and institutes in Kalimpong along with some relevant information about them. Hopefully this list will be useful for prospective students or parents/guardians etc.

I have long wanted to set this list up but only got around to doing it now. The information has been collected from various sources. I would like to thank all those who helped by contributing tidbits of info, especially the good folks of the Darjeeling Forum, and lots of thanks to SP for compiling the information.

This list is in no way comprehensive or complete at this moment so please expect to see errors or omissions. If you do spot any, please drop me a line to let me know, or say so in the comments thread below.

If there are any schools/institutes in Kalimpong that I’ve missed out, please do let me know. I’d be grateful for any information that will help me “fill-in-the-blanks” below. 😀

Cheers,

-Update: Thanks to Mr. Vimal Khawas for providing additional information.

The state board schools like SUMI, Kumudini had nepali as the medium of instruction (with books written in Nepali till class V) till about 10-12 years ago. However, the government of west bengal keeping in mind the importance of english instructed these schools to follow english in primary standard. Although by and large teachers in these schools still teach in Nepali (mode of lecture), but the books are written in English.

    Thank you so much for this effort. I need to know a contact in one of the hostels connected to the Toddler’s Prep School. I do not remember the name of the Hostel but remember the name of warden. His name is Ashok Pradhaan. If someone can help me with his contact detail. I would really appreciate that as this is the first school i had attended and want to be in touch with Mr. Pradhan.

    Hi all you lovely people from Kalimpong,my dream is to visit one day as my dear father told me so many stories as a child of his life growing up in Kalimpong. He died many years ago and all i have is a bible he gave me that he was given on leaving school in 1926. i am trying to trace St Andrews Kalimpong Homes, it was a boys home and school and the signature on the bible is J A Graham, could this be the founder of the Dr Grahams schools? i would really appreciate any comments or help in tracing this school and or anyone who would still be alive to remember Anthony Minahan thankyou
