The Legacy of

Teachers and Staff
What we aim?
The foundation of St. Paul’s School, Hauz Khas was laid in the year 1968 with an aim not just to create another face in the crowd but to nurture each student into a personality that makes the nation proud. Love, tolerance, brotherhood, humanism, patriotism, sensitivity to the environment, rationalism, courage to bear life’s contingencies and to take up the cudgels on behalf of the underprivileged are the hallmarks of our students. St. Pauls endeavours to provide not just pedantic learning of bookish knowledge but a genuine and holistic education in a stress free environment. We not only train them to find challenging careers but also face the complexities of life.
