Burdwan Municipal High School had its auspicious inception in the year 1883. Since then began its splendid journey along the avenue of education. This age-old school of over 100 years has been successfully able to produce many legendary personalities of singular talents who have left indelible mark in the pages of long history of the school.

It is one of the best schools in West Bengal, claiming an exalted position of dignity and diction. Its exotic location in the nearest access of Bijoy Toran, formerly Curzon Gate, in the town Burdwan, gives rise to an ingredient of every advantage of an easily reachable place. Now it stands as a witness of its glorious past, a votary of vibrant present and an aspirant of a rosy future.
THE BEGINNING
The present school had its seed in Brahmo Samaj Boys' School (later renamed Burdwan English School) which was established by Maharshi Debendranath Tagore, along with Adi Brahmo Samaj, Burdwan chapter in 1855. Bhagaban Chandra Basu, the then Deputy magistrate of Burdwan and father of Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, was one of its founders. After the demise of Mahatab Chandra the Brahma movement in Burdwan became weak through lack of patronage. The school was in dire financial straits. The crisis was over when Burdwan Municipality took over the school and Burdwan Municipal School started its journey anew on 1.1.1883.
