Principal's Message

The world today is changing at such a brisk pace that we as educators need to reflect on this scenario. ‘To Motivate the late bloomers, to mould the mediocre and to challenge the gifted should be the required principle of today and our school sincerely believes in this notion. As Einstein had said , “Education is not so much the feeding of facts into the mind as the awakening of curiosity in the soul. ’’ We encourage our students to question, as we want them to be agile in their thinking and stimulate the intellectual curiosity of the child. The vision of Carmel School, Patna is to live creatively and to make this world a better place for all, through the service of education of our young, especially towards the empowerment of women. In this 21st century, our school focuses on an approach that incorporates inquiry, research, analytical thinking and an ethical approach that becomes a life time habit in our students. It is not the will to win but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

The roots of present lie in the past and so we look to the past in order to understand the evolution of Carmel into a fine institution ,that it is today. Carmel High School, Patna has always kept up with its motto of imparting education, discipline,moral and spiritual values to build leaders who will bring about a culture of peace and love. On 10th August 2019, Carmel High School ,Patna, celebrated its Platinum Jubilee. We are grateful to God for His manifold blessings bestowed upon our institution. May Carmel always be a beacon light.
