Salt Lake School is a co-educational school situated in Salt Lake City, Kolkata, India.

It is one of the most reputed and the oldest schools in Salt Lake. The school started from the academic year of 1979. The Govt. Of West Bengal in consideration of the need of multilingual population of Salt Lake City, sponsored Salt Lake School(Eng.Medium). 

On 1st September 1981, the management of the school was handed over to Salt Lake School (Eng. Medium) Society, constituted guardians, teachers, and staff of the school. 

The school is managed by an Executive Council. Students are prepared for the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (I.C.S.E) and Indian School Certificate Examination (I.S.C) under the Council for The Indian School Certificate Examinations. 

The school has classes from pre-primary (4+) level to class XII. The first batch of students appeared for the I.C.S.E exam from this school in March 1987 and for the I.S.C Exam in 1991. The school continues to be under the general supervision and guidance of the Deputy Director of School Education, (Anglo-Indian), Government of West Bengal. 

Salt Lake School (Eng.Med.) is the school that cares. It has always tried to live up to the ideals of Duty, Reverence, Knowledge. The students and the teachers have tried to implement them in their own little ways through school activities and also in their personal lives.

Recently, the school has received the grant for setting up of Atal Tinkering Laboratory at the school premises. Out of 13000 plus schools, only 457 schools across India have been finally selected as the Centres for setting up ATL. ATL is a work space where young minds can give shape to their ideas through hands on do-it-yourself mode; and learn innovation skills. Young children will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand the concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). ATL would contain educational and learning ‘do it yourself’ kits and equipment on – science, electronics, robotics, open source microcontroller boards, sensors and 3D printers and computers. Other desirable facilities include meeting rooms and video conferencing facility.

In order to foster inventiveness among students, ATL can conduct different activities ranging from regional and national level competitions, exhibitions, workshops on problem solving, designing and fabrication of products, lecture series etc. at periodic intervals.
