This school was established in 1904 by the British government, as an experimental school of the only Teachers Training College of East Bengal at that time.The school started at a vast campus with red brick buildings constructed in the British style at a location in front of the Tara Masjid (Star Mosque), a famous monument of Muslim architecture.Within a few years after its establishment, it drew attention of the city dwellers for its performance as an institute of excellence in education, sports and culture.
The school however, could not sustain its name and fame during later years, particularly during Pakistan period. Only by turning it into a government school in 1960 could it be saved from chronic financial crisis.
