History[edit]

Chittagong Government Madrasah's Anglo-Persian Department was split off to form the school in 1909. Originally it operated out of part of the local Registration Office building.[2] The school opened at first with madrasah and Bengali departments. The first headmaster, from 1910 to 1915, was Khan Shaheb Wahaidun Nabi.[citation needed] It moved to a permanent site in 1916, and was renamed Chittagong Government Muslim High School.[2] In 1953, the Urdu department was also established. In 1970 the school expanded into a new building. There was also a small mosque, which was subsequently enlarged. In 2005 the government established another two buildings, a science lab building and an administration building.[citation needed]
