Burdwan Municipal High School, located at the heart of Burdwan, a town 95 km north-west of Kolkata, is one of the oldest boys schools in India. The school was established in 1883 by the Bardhaman Municipal Authority.


In 1855 Maharshi Debendranath Tagore, along with Adi Brahmo Samaj established Brahmo Samaj Boys’ School (later renamed Burdwan English School). Bhagaban Chandra Basu, the then Deputy magistrate of Burdwan and father of Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, was one of its founders. After the demise of Mahatab Chandra the Brahma movement in Burdwan became weak for lack of patronage and the school became in financial straits. Burdwan Municipality took over the school and Burdwan Municipal School started its journey anew in 1883.


This school is a higher secondary school (from class 1 to 12).

The curriculum is as per West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (until class 10) and West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (Class 11 and 12).

The common curriculum is followed until class 10. In class 11 and 12, there are 3 streams: Science, Commerce and Arts.
