Brief About the School : St Joseph’s Boys High School, Bangalore, (formerly St. Joseph’s European High School) was founded by the Jesuit Fathers and Brothers in 1858 to offer a liberal education for the boys of European and Anglo-Indian families. After India’s Independence admission was extended in the 1950s and 1960s to include all students, irrespective of race, religion, or caste. The school buildings are situated in the center of the (formerly European quarter of the) city. Originally the upper floors provided dormitory space.
Large, open playgrounds accommodate sports such as cricket, football, and hockey. and other games and forms of exercise. The cricket team trains at the Centenary Ground located on Mahatma Gandhi Road near the Mayo Hall. The school pays great attention to physical training and sports and has long conducted the Annual Hockey Tournament for ICSE schools in Bangalore. Sports rivalries have been strong since the mid-19th century. The school hosts a Cadet Platoon, a Boy Scout Troop, and Debating and Literary Societies for the higher classes
