St. Mary’s Catholic High School was established in Fujairah in 2002 to meet the educational demand of the existing international milieu. Having comprehended the need of the place, His Excellency Rev. Gremoli, the Vicar Apostolic Arabia, together with his team, launched the GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) syllabus initially, thereafter, to meet the requirement of local Indian population, the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) syllabus (Delhi Board) as well was initiated. The foundation of the School was laid with the motto “The End Crowns the Work” so as to entrench the mind of the students to begin their academics with lofty thoughts.
The pioneers had a great role in streamlining the curriculum, discipline and infrastructure of the School. Sr. Alessandra was appointed as the first Principal of the GCSE School, who commenced the work with enormous enthusiasm and looked into the various sphere of development of the school. She, along with her administration department, has brought a massive reputation to the School with proper discipline and a higher standard of teaching methodology. The other Principals, who were appointed after Sr. Alessandra, have not only continued to sustain the reputation but also raised the status of the school every year.
