Comilla Zilla School (Bengali: কুমিল্লা জিলা স্কুল) is a boy's school in Comilla, a city in Bangladesh. It is one of the oldest schools in the country. It was the only school in Comilla for four decades before the establishment of Nawab Fayjunnesa Girl's High School in 1878.

Entrance of the School


The school, in the center of Comilla, was established in 1837 by an Englishman named H. G. Legister. It was governmentalized as a high school by the government of British India for teaching English literature and science and named Comilla Zilla School. In the 1850s the school building expanded and improved its teaching structure.


Initially the school conducted only one shift. From 1991 two shifts were introduced: morning and day. Presently all the classes from 5 to 10 are running. There are six sections in each of the classes: ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, and ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ for class six to eight where ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ are in morning shift and day shift. There are two sections in nine and ten; they are 'A' and 'B'.

There are 60 students in each of the sections. For class nine and ten students are distributed into four sections following the same structure with a larger number of students in a class. Almost 2,000 students are studying in the school with 53 teachers.
