Situated in the midst of Dummalli village, this school is  about 10 kms from Shivamogga city centre and 3 kms from NH 206. The village population is primarily engaged in agriculture with major crops cultivated being paddy, millets, arecanut and coconut.


Government Higher Primary  School, Dummalli  was sanctioned and started in 1947. At the time there was a single teacher, 20 children and 1 class room. This school was started by the efforts of the village leader, Doddamane Navalappa who undertook the cost of construction for  1 class room on land given by the  government. The school was converted to a higher primary school (class  5  to 7) in 1981 and another 2 classrooms were added then. 

In 2002, the school expanded further and included class 8 as well. Till date  308 students have passed out of class 8 from this school. The school  recently received some government  grants which were put to good use to construct a girls’  toilet and for renovation of some  classrooms
