"Founded in 1858 by Thomas Stanes, the school is one of the oldest in the Nilgiris. Situated in the heart of the beautiful town of Coonoor at an elevation of 1850 metres a.s.l., Coonoor is easily accessible both by road and rail. Coimbatore, 80 kms away, is the nearest airhead to the town. The salubrious year-round weather and sylvan environs make for an ideal locale for cultivating young minds.The co-educational school, with residential facilities, is managed by the Stanes High School Council.At Stanes School, students will be challenged and transformed by our robust all-round development and our strong spirit of community. As the Dean of Residence, my job is to lead the Residential section in supporting the most valuable asset the School has: our students!Being a member of this beautiful community provides your children the opportunity to learn from each other and practice the responsibilities that are required for a community to be safe and welcoming to each of its members. Achieving this is hard work that requires patience, critical thinking, compassion, and a commitment to the idea of community. Everyone benefits when we work together to create an inclusive and engaging campus.The Residential section is committed to helping you navigate Stanes in a manner that exposes you to all the School has to offer. We will also challenge you to consider different perspectives and try new experiences as you progress. Our goal is to promote your individual growth, facilitate constructive engagement in our community, and encourage the development of life skills that will help you be successful well beyond your time on campus.
