Chittaranjan High School(English Medium) is the first English Medium school which runs under the aegis of Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW) and is affiliated to West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) as well as West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE). Since inception of Chittaranjan in 1947 till 1966, there was neither any government school having English as the medium of pedagogy nor any English medium school within the affordability of all sections of employees here, although Bengali and Hindi medium schools were available. Moreover, there was no English medium school at all of any genre whatsoever for Higher Secondary education. Chittaranjan being a cosmopolitan township having population of widely diverse composition with heterogeneous ethnicity from all zones of India by dint of the personnel serving Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW), the need for an affordable government English medium school was long felt strongly.
The Cittaranjan just after Independence, where the School took off and the Chittaranjan where it thrives now, are very different, and the difference is not only in the time, but also in culture and Chittaranjan High School has wonderfully handled the changing student milieu, scripting success in an evolving city. With 1200 pupils and committed teachers, Chittaranjan High School is now what it has always aspired to be. a School nurturing excellence.
