St.Paul's School : This is the main building of St.Paul's School Darjeeling.The school was moved to its present Jalapahar estate in Darjeeling in 1864 with 31 boarders and a few day scholars. At that time, at approximately 7,600 feet above sea level, it was the highest school in the world.Earlier it was found in Calcutta in 1823 and situated at Park Street in Calcutta.

Current students are referred to as Paulites and the alumni as Old Paulites. The school lays a great emphasis on uniform, and on off-campus trips all students must dress in prescribed suits and carry umbrellas. The student government is headed by a School Captain, assisted by house captains and prefects, drawn from the Sixth Form. The Junior and Primary Wings have their own system of monitors. The Sixth form is privileged and enjoys an advantage over the rest. The chapel holds a central place in the life of the school where it meets as a community. There are clubs which develop artistic and technical skills. Each house presents a concert from time to time, apart from the major school production in October. The sport curriculum is dominated by football, cricket, athletics and hockey.
