History[edit]

The Brothers of St. Gabriel came to Chiang Mai and established Montfort Primary School in 1932 along Charoen Prathet Road on a 5-acre (20,000 m2) plot of land provided by Bishop Peross from Luang Anusarn Suntorn who gave his financial support at no interest. The land was located along the Ping River, approximately 200 meters from the Sacred Heart Church. Montfort School officially opened its first academic year on 16 March 1932. Fr. Shivam was the manager, Brother Simon the first director, Brother Ambrosio the vice-director and Brother Louis was responsible for new construction.
