Monastic Higher Secondary English Boarding School (Nepali: मोनस्टिक उ. मा. बी. जनकपुर), (usually known simply as Monastic School) is a private boarding school in Janakpurdham, Dhanusa District, southeast Nepal.It was established in 1985 at a rented house in Bhanu chowk, where it remained for seven years before moving to its present location on Dhanushapath, in the south of the town. Both the facilities are functional. Founded by Dr. Mithilesh Sah, it was named Monastic after the Sanskrit word of गुरुकुल, gurukul which is a type of school in India, residential in nature, with shishyas living in proximity to the guru, often within the same house. It does not follow the guru-shishya tradition (parampara), and is a "normal" residential school.
There are 3000 students in the school aged 5 to 18; the lower school, the middle school and the higher school, all are co-educational and has equal percentages of girls and boys. The first headmaster was Dr. Mithilesh Sah, who has occupied the post since the establishment of the school and is the first and only headmaster of the school.
Monastic pupils compulsorily take a district level qualification exam in Grade eight and another important test, the School Leaving Certificate level ( equivalent to GCSE) tests in Grade ten (aged 15–16), which earns them a matriculation degree and then they, like all the other SLC graduates in Nepal, have a range of choices where they choose either, the state funded 10+2 level and continue their education in Monastic, or any other higher secondary school in Nepal, or the British A-levels in the sixth form, offered by UCLES in Nepal, or the International Baccalaureate. The majority of students go on to higher education following the completion of their SLC at the end of Year Thirteen (aged 17–18).
The School is a full fledged English Medium School, ultimately upgraded to 10+2 Science, Commerce, Arts and Education. This School was founded by Dr. Mithlesh Kumar Sah in 1985. Monastic school has 3 branches, namely the lower-secondary, Secondary and Higher-secondary branches, and they are under different supervisions. Most of its affairs are controlled by the founder principal.The school is renowned locally because of its regular good results at the annual SLC examinations, thus has managed to maintain a distinctive place amongst the locals.
The School also provides boarding facilities for its students and also runs local transportation services for the students from the outer parts of the Janakpur city.
Monastic school operates two courses of study :
- School Leaving Certificate level (a nationwide curriculum up to class 10 prescribed by the Department of Education of Nepal.
- 10+2 level (Higher Secondary Education Board of Nepal, equivalent alternative to A-levels).
Extra curricular activities
The school holds extra-curricular activities and training sessions for personality development, most of which include cricket matches, quite popular game in that part of the world , along with some indoor games.Singing and Dancing is also a common activity and most of the dances are of local mithilanchal origin and in the process the local culture is also practiced.
