It is said that a ship is only as good as its captain and this is a reality as far as Gonzaga School is concerned. In fact Gonzaga School is fortunate to have the experience and expertise of its founding principal Grace Noronha who has been instrumental in scripting the success story of Gonzaga School. Her vision and experience in managing the new institution has played a key role in its emergence as a top notch school offering quality CBSE curriculum. Needless to say the school has set new trends and benchmarks in terms of offering education in consonance with modern trends and requirements.
In today’s digital world conventional methods of teaching and learning alone are not suffice to equip students to cope with the challenges. Therefore, the students of Gonzaga School are made to think beyond established patterns of learning. The team of committed and talented faculty of the school has been a key factor in Gonzaga School finding its niche in the field of education. The school boasts of a health teach-student ratio and the 27 highly qualified and trained teaching staff and 9 non-teaching staff have played a pivotal role in helping Gonzaga School to find a firm niche in Mangaluru among CBSE schools by adopting perspicuous methods of teaching and learning. Needless to say all the parents and students who, for long had rooted for a CBSE curriculum school from Aloysius Group of Institutions with high expectations are now happy to see the rapid progress achieved by the school.

Apart from academic activities Gonzaga School offers extracurricular activities to students to activities like sports and games, art, culture, literature craft and music. The school also offers opportunities to karate, skating, chess, yoga, drawing, dance, instrumental music and other activities related to art and culture so that students with proclivity towards these activities get an opportunity to pursue their interests within the school premises. Students also have the option of opting for clubs like bulbuls and scouts and guides and groom their personality. It is the first school in Dakshina Kannada to introduce the concept of terrace garden in its school premises on its own so that children get to see nature from close quarters.
Gonzaga School has adopted a holistic approach towards education wherein the creative minds of the students are allowed to explore newer avenues and help them reach greater heights. Electronic gadgets and e-learning is the norm in this school and teaching life skills is part of the curriculum.

These life skills help the students to cope with life as it moulds their personality and transform them into future leaders and global citizens.
It was in 2012 St Aloysius Gonzaga School became a reality when the MJES responded to public demand to set up a CBSE syllabus in institutions run by the society. Since its inception the school is functioning on the St Aloysius Pre-university campus, wherein all modern infrastructural facilities are provided for the students. A well equipped computer lab, composite science and math lab and a language lab built as per CBSE norms provide the right kind of platform for schools to excel in every sphere of their school and scholastic activity.
The new avant-garde multi-storied school building coming up on the PU campus of the college is in the final stages of construction and the school will operate from the new premises from the next academic year. The new building is planned to be equipped with all modern and futuristic facilities. Mangalore Jesuit Educational Society (MJES) is expecting a generous and helping hand from philanthropists and alumni of Aloysians towards this project. Being a futuristic project the generosity of the people would go a long way in equipping the school with ultra modern facilities on par with international standards.
MJES has been instrumental in scripting Mangaluru’s success story in the field of education and it now here is an opportunity for the people to contribute in their own little way and help the Jesuits to provide top-quality education in Mangaluru.
