About the School
Welcome to the official website of Pine Mount School, Shillong
Pine Mount School, a residential school for girls, was founded in 1900 as a government institution for the education of children of European descent. An old hard-bound Admission Register in the School Office has entries dating back to the year 1900. However, there are inferences in the Register that the school may have existed before 1900, but there are no records to prove this.
The oldest School Register records admission by Miss Miles, the Headmistress from the year 1900. The first name recorded on this Register is of one Lydia Fenton (born on 1-9-1883 and admitted on 6.81900). Interestingly, names of boys also appear on this same page, the first name being Jack Rivett Carmae (born on 14-6-1889 and admitted on 6.8.1900).
Pine Mount School has, since Independence, become an institution open to children of all citizens. It has been raised to the Secondary status from March 1926 and to the Higher Secondary status in 1992.
