Brief History: In 2011 when Karbook became a Sub-division, the Government was interested to open an English Medium School.  With the help of Mr. Sukesh Debbarma the local catechist and Mr. Singha Kumar Tripura, the then Karbook Tahsil, a Catholic from Gandacherra Parish, we gave an application to the Government for the land allotment to start an English Medium School.  In 2014 the School was inaugurated.  In 2016 the SRA Sisters looked after the School and Hostel.
