St .John’s Sr. Sec. School is one of the most prestigious schools of Kota city, founded in the year, 1973 at civil lines, and since then it has been progressing ‘leaps and bounds’ and we are sure that one day it will reach its zenith. The institution was recognized as a middle school in 1976, a Secondary in 1984 and a Sr. Sec. School in 1986. The school was shifted the new and permanent building at Bundi Road, Kota in 1984.
