Dr. Khastagir Government Girls’ School

Dr. Khastagir Government Girls’ High School is a school in Chittagong city, Bangladesh. It is located near Jamal Khan, in the central part of the city. It is a large girls’ school, established by Annadacharan Khastagir, a pioneer in women’s education in Chittagong during the late 19th century. The school is one of the top schools of Chittagong. It reportedly ranks high in the country in both Junior School Certificate and Secondary School Certificate. In 2005, it was the top ranked school in the Secondary School Certificate examination in Chittagong Education Board.[1] In 2011, 2012 and 2013 the school topped Junior School Certificate Examination Merit list in Chittagong. The School was founded by Annadacharan Khastagir. During the colonial era, women of the conservative Bangladesh (then part of British India) was lacking behind in education. The situation was worsened by the socio-cultural norms of keeping girls veiled and away from public spaces. Therefore, most educated women were taught at home by their liberal fathers or husbands. It is in the midst of this background, Annadacharan Khastagir established the school to provide education to girls. Dr Annadacharan Khastagir, a leader of the then Brahmo Movement, a friend of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar and a progressive person who made his four daughters highly educated in English, established a vernacular medium school at Jamal Khan Road in the port city in 1878. Eminent lawyer of then British colonial era Jatra Mohan Sen (widely known as JM Sen), who married Binodini, third daughter of Dr. Khastagir, made the school exclusively for girls in 1907 and renamed it as Dr. Khastagir Girls’ School in memory of his wife and father-in-law after Binodini died in 1906. JM Sen donated seven acres of land and a building to upgrade the school into a high English school, which was later subsidized by the government and named as ‘Dr Khastagir’s Govt High English School For Girls’. Today, the school follows the general national curriculum of Bangladeshi Education System, and provides education to girls from primary (starting from grade 5) to secondary level (grade 6-10). It has completed its 100 years in 2007. Since its journey with only three students named Anna Sen, Prem Kusum and Juni, the school produced hundreds of scholars during the past 100 years. It is one of the oldest and prestigious schools in Chittagong, as well as in the country. Through the annals of history, the school has earned name, fame and respect for its academic excellence, extra-curricular activities and development of girls’ education....
