De Paul School History
De Paul School, Berhampur, is named after St. Vincent De Paul, one of the pioneers of social reformation. The school had a humble beginning with 56 children and over the years it grew in size and popularity and has the strength of over 2800 students today. Dedicated service of the teachers under an able administration and perfect management has paved the way for the success of this institution. The objective of the school is to impart to the students a sound education under the guidance of the Vincentian Fathers.
