A brief about Silver Point School

On 26th July 1997, Silver Point School opened its doors for students residing in New Ballygunge (Kasba), a part of the metropolis Kolkata. There was a need for quality English medium school with adequate infrastructure to support the local children. Late Sri Pannalal Roychowdhury and Mrs. Bani Roychowdhury took the initiative of starting Silver Point School with only 4 students. Today the school with nearly 1500 students follow the motto – “Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamayo” which means “Lead us from darkness to light” diligently.

The school will complete 25 years of its service in education. It believes in holistic development of all children and lays equal emphasis on co-curricular activities along with academics.
The school got affiliation from WBBSE in the year 2005 and WBCHSE in the year 2012 with all the three streams, Science Humanities and Commerce in the Higher Secondary Section. In 2022 the school switched over to the CBSE Board. The first batch of CBSE will appear in 2024.
The school has maintained a record of academic excellence right from the year 2007 and most students are well placed or pursuing University education in different careers in several parts of the world.
