The Principals and the Brothers who ever worked here always left a feeling of belongingness and joyful memories in our hearts. The teachers were always treated with respect. Brotherly love and affection was shared by them. The higher authorities of the Brothers are always humble to interact with us and encourage us whenever they come here.
Sincerely I feel that Montfort Senior Secondary School is the best place where a child can grow up with self respect, positive energy, confidence and can flourish in his/her life.
