Under the guidance of the well-known philanthropist and industrialist Shri MadhavPrasadji Birla and Smt. Priyamvada Birla, M.P.Birla Foundation Education Society, a non-profit Institution, established the M.P.Birla Foundation H.S.School on James Long Sarani, Behala, Kolkata.Initially the school, with a strength of 1500 students, was affiliated to the CBSE.The first Class X batch appeared for the CBSE Examination in March 1993 in which all 65 students secured first division marks.Later,the school switched over to ICSE in the year 1995. In 1996, the school was upgraded to the plus 2 category, catering to both Science and Commerce streams. Every year, the students continue to come out with flying colours not only in the board examinations, but also in All- India competitive examinations, thus ensuring their place in the premier institutes for higher studies. The school has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 1998. The present strength of the school stands at 3200. What would M.P.Birla Foundation H.S.School be without the MPBians!

Ashamed to be an alumni of this godforsaken place. Teachers unnecessarily pressurized students. Neither did the school properly prepare the students for competitive/board exams nor did they allow the students to prepare on their own. Teachers took pride in setting unnecessarily hard question papers without preparing the students properly. Hitting students was quite common. Have also heard rumours of administration asking money from parents in order to promote their children. Although the school claimed to be English medium but the language standard of most faculty would put Laluprasad Yadav tk shame. Teachers/staff were extremely unapproachable, condescending to the extent of being offensive to not only the students but also the parents. Alums who have succeeded have done so despite of the school and not because of it.... Wasted the decade of my life where I was unfortunate enough to be a part of this hell hole Went through the Wikipedia page - not surprising to see anyone having made any dent in the field of academics/business. Read a review - where someone has said that met a few alums of the school and they were not upto the mark. Seeing the alums that have given rave reviews , couldn't agree more.

This school has lost its values and ethics it used to stand for. Under the new principal's direction the school's curriculum is deteriorating - NO PLACE FOR HINDUISM (HINDU) , a PRO GANDHIAN follower with no backbone and a BIG HYPOCRITE. No place for new young brilliant teacher. Same old teachers who busy doing politics and torture on children, except a few who are protected themselves from evil . Full of money gulping fellows. Fake people , fake friends, fake teachers, fake people. THE WHOLE SCHOOL IS FULL OF MORRONS.
