History[edit]

The school was established in 1943.[1]:95 Following a visit to St Xavier's School, Patna, Mirza Ismail, the prime minister of Jaipur State, wished to have a similar institution in his home city, Jaipur. As a result, the Jesuits took over management of St. Mary's Boys School,[1]:95 which had been founded two years earlier, in 1941.[1]:94 The school became co-educational in 1989.[2]
