About St. Mary's Arcadian School

With a view to promote utilitarianism, St Mary's Arcadian School was founded in the year 2016 at Aishtala, Ranaghat, by Late Balai Chandra Pal, the Founder President of RMEWS. His view of serving the society in and around Ranaghat was reinforced by a few educationists and academicians and the school started its journey towards enlightening the future of the society in and around Ranaghat. With the passage of time, now it is primarily concerned about "gaining ability, a skill, some knowledge, a new attitude etc. rather than having merely completed a given task" and to thereby create global citizens of tomorrow.
Our core concern is that every child should blossom.



Our Motto

Philosopher Herbert Spencer said, "Education has for its object the formation of character."
St. Mary's English School was founded in the year 2002 with a mission to inculcate value based education among the children in such a manner that they grow with an inbuilt character based on education, dedication and dynamism.
St. Mary's Secondary School (H.S) and St. Mary's Arcadian School were founded in later years. The schools have developed with an idea of being friendly, progressive, responsible, innovative and flexible to the needs of the children. St. Mary's Group of Institutions was started with a mission to establish a renowned educational institute which shall eradicate the darkness and miseries of illiteracy and produce responsible citizens who are physically fit, mentally sound, intellectually genius and morally worth emulation.
Students from all walks of life are welcome here to build composite families in this educational institution. The need for the creation of intelligent and energetic young people has become the main focus of our school that creates a unique environment and achieves excellence in education.
Our school is a progressive, co-educational, result oriented institution where education is imparted without having any sort of discrimi-nation of caste, creed and religion.




The institution is run by Ranaghat Mandakini Educational Welfare Society.

  • Discipline

    "Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they are making to win losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that's the difference." The maintenance of discipline and good behaviour shall be an essential pre-requisite condition to the students of this school.

    Game & Sports


    After a tiring day at school, a student needs a reliable and safe transport to commute as early as possible to attend his/her next errand. Keeping this in mind, our school has its transport run by 'Sampark Agency'. Students may avail this transport facility on the basis of discussion with the transport agency.

    Message from the Principal

    A Caring Community School which aims to develop well adjusted individuals who strive to achieve their full potential in a dynamic, caring and supportive environment. We, at St. Mary's Arcadian School, aim towards sound academics, self-discipline, self-worth, respect for others and co-operative learning and living skills. Be with us, St. Mary's Arcadian School, to serve the community in a better way. We are trying to redefine the excellence in education by striking a balance between the intelligence quotient and emotional quotient of every learner.
    Everybody should take in consideration what UNESCO has to say in this report. Understanding the Four Pillars of Education can make us become better people as well as improve our lives as teachers. Being able to learn to know can help us gain a deeper comprehension of the world that surrounds us, by mastering learning tools, developing concentration, memory skills and the ability to think. Human beings need all these to solve problems, have abstract thoughts and to be capable of combining deductive and inductive reasoning, so learning to do won't be so difficult.
    In these times the more we know the better; but if we are not qualified to do things, it makes it almost impossible to succeed. Occupational and skill training, personal competence, social behavior, personal initiative, willingness to take risks and group work abilities are as important and necessary today. Let me take help of Confucius here, "It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."
    Pro Deo et Patria.
