The school building was constructed by the government in 1945. The school had humble beginnings, starting with one room, 2 teachers and about 50 children from class 1-4.

The school expanded in 1990 to include classes upto 7th. The school is proud to have seen nearly 20,000 children passing through the school and building illustrious careers for themselves.
