St. Joseph's Education Society started the Society's first institution namely, St Anthony's High School in the Himayathnagar area, in the year 1971 for classes I to V with English as the medium of instruction. It is said that like spring the beginnings of all great things are small. The school which started on a modest scale quickly attained name and fame in the twin cities and by the year 1976-77 it became a full fledged high school and the first batch of 10th class students appeared for the SSC public examination in March, 1977. The result in the public exam was near cent percent. The school now has a strength of nearly 3000 students. St. Joseph's School, Habsiguda is another institution under the same management. It was started in the year 1999 and is affiliated to CISCE, New Delhi.
Though academic excellence is the main aim of our institutions, it is necessary to expose the students to the outside world to relax and think. To this end, the various activities in our institutions help to draw out and develop the talents and skills in the students. Our institutions encourage the students to participate in various events conducted by organizations like NTSE, the Unified Council ( Maths & Science Olympiad ). Our students have excelled in Basketball, Cricket, Tennis, Gymnastics, Athletics, Kho-Kho, Volleyball, Throw ball, Football, Badminton, Swimming, and Roller skating events held at both the National and State levels. It is a regular annual feature in all our institutions to take the students on educational tours to various places of historical and cultural interest in the country.
Leadership is a potent combination of character and strategy. Leadership qualities have to be nurtured at school to train future citizens. The School Cabinet and Parliament plays a vital role in inculcating democratic principles and practices in the students. The functioning of School Cabinets and School Parliaments in our institutions has been very successful in that a strong foundation is laid for future parliamentarians and legislators.
