Established in 1993, this Government school caters to 240 students. The students belong to the families of the predominantly farming community of Gurupura village. The students are performing very well and 92% of them have graduated from 10th grade the past year. They are very motivated and will do even better if provided with better facilities and educational tools, including computers, books, and furniture.

The school operated in two buildings – one old and one fairly new, built by the Government a few years ago. The newer building had 3 classrooms and was totally inadequate for accommodating the 240 students. The old building was collapsing, and was almost unusable.
