Information about school





  St. Joseph’s School, Nanda Nagar has its beginning on 2nd July 2000, as an answer to impart quality education in an area mostly inhabited by workers.   St. Joseph’s School belongs to the Catholic Diocese of  Indore, a Registered Religious Society, under the management of the Bishop of Indore, which runs a number of reputed schools such as St. Paul H.S. School, Indore, Rajeshwar Vidhyalaya, Mhow, Holy Trinity School, Dewas.   The growth of St. Joseph’s School, Nanda Nagar and its finding a place of its own among the premier educational institution of the city is the result of able administration and the competent staff members. The school never compromises on quality. “Excellence” is the catch word for the school. The holistic growth of a student in all spheres is our aim. Therefore we offer a wide spectrum of activities to the students. Ever since its plunge, the school has maintained its quality. The school is esteemed by all in its mission of imparting quality education and thereby (molding the lives of) making a mark in hundreds of students’ lives.

The school has grown over the years by leaps and bounds. The spacious class rooms and the peaceful atmosphere in the campus, is a perfect scenario for learning.

St. Joseph’s stands as a jewel in the crown of the city. The school, which had been under the state board from its beginning got affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi in 2007.


The Emblem & Motto




The specialty of a lit lamp is that it gives light to everyone who comes. St. Joseph's School is like a lamp lit on a mountain top, leading everyone to light of knowledge by dispelling the darkness of ignorance values.



The Bible begins with the book called Genesis where it is written:

“Then God said, Let there be light.’ And there was light.” God is
light and there is no darkness in him. God is the source of light. Writing about Jesus, St. John says:”The true light which enlightens everyone was coming into the world”. Jesus Himself says, “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid So “LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE”.

Each person becomes a light to the world If he obtains right knowledge and dispels the darkness of ignorance. The process of learning from childhood to adult age, allow one to remove darkness from one’s life and come into the light, to become gradually an enlightened person. St. Joseph’s School will begin process of learning for little children in KG and accompany them to higher classes: So we pray with our ancient sage: LORD, LEAD ME FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT.
