St. Joseph's Higher Secondary School, Thiruvananthapuram

St. Joseph's Higher Secondary School is a Government aided boys educational institution located at the heart of Thiruvananthapuram [Trivandrum] city, Kerala, India. It is one of the oldest schools in the city. It was started by the Catholic diocese and was later taken over by the Society of Jesus. The school was again handed over to the Latin Catholic Archdiocese of Trivandrum in 1998 by the Jesuits and was then aided by the Government of Kerala.

St.Joseph's High School

In the late 1960s, it was one of the few schools in Kerala that was offering Latin as a second language and up until 2006, the school never permanently employed a female teaching staff.
