Inspired by the vision and directions of the Founder St. Louis Mary De Montfort,
the Brothers of St. Gabriel opened this Institution named MONTFORT SCHOOL, at New
Haridwar Road, ROORKEE on 25th July, 1994 with a group of 102 students from classes
UKG to IV with Bro. Mani V.J. as its first Principal and Mrs. P. Chandra as Head
Mistress. It is situated on the main Highway from Roorkee to the holy cities of
Haridwar and Rishikesh, 7 K.M. from internationally famous I.I.T of Roorkee. It
is a school set in the garden and natural surroundings with 11 acres of land.
The Brothers of St. Gabriel were already in Roorkee before starting Montfort School.
They were having a school in the cantonment area named St. Gabriel's Academy. Seeing
the need and the request and demand from the public, Brothers started this new school
7 km away from the existing one. Since it is away from the town and almost all the
students are from the town, Montfort school plies buses for the students. Montfort
School is an unaided Christian Minority school, recognized by the C.B.S.E. and the
medium of instruction is English. Boys and Girls are admitted. Though it is a minority
school for Christian (Catholic) children, admission is open to all. Normally, admission
is done only in L.K.G. classes. Those seeking admission to L.K.G. should be within
the age group of 3 ½ to 4 ½ years on April 1st of the year of admission. The age
requirement of other classes will be on the basis of the above.
In 2001 the Seva Missionary Sisters of Mary congregation joined the Brothers in
the school as collaborators.
On this day, the school was ready to venture with 8 classrooms and two toilets in
three wings. With the arrival of the first batch of 42 children in a specially decorated
bus and ringing of bells at 8.30 am- a new institution ushered in-to carry the torch
of love, freedom and integrity on the path of education. One more member to the
Prestigious Society of the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel was born. It was a new
experience for almost everyone present there- to be a part of an Institution on
its opening day. The then Provincial Superior Bro. Philip Thadathil, Manager Late
Bro. Thomas Madapalli and the Principal Bro. Mani V.J welcomed the staff and students
with the message to make Montfort School a home away from home for the students,
teaching young minds to compete with themselves to be always on the search to discover,
to explore and to strive on.
