Dhenkanal is a small beautiful town surrounded by greenery of jungle and small hills, a place with a lot of natural serenity and peace. The school is situated in an eco-friendly environment of Mahisapat, the way between the famous tourist place Kapilas and Saptasajya near the base of the Paniohla hills just 200 mt away from N.H. 55 which connects Sambalpur Cuttack. It is the one of the district head quarters of Odisha state. MONTFORT SCHOOL is established in the year 1969 and the only ICSE School in whole of Dhenkanal district.
English medium school was a dream for the people of Dhenkanal. So a few learned people of Dhenkanal took the initiative to start an English Medium school in 1969 and got an old building with few acres of land at Mahishapat. The dream of having an English Medium school was actualized in the same year when Sri. S.R. Vala then collector as Chairman and Mr.P.K Tripathy as Secretary took the lead to start and the school was known as Public School, Dhenkanal.
Initially only 20 students and they were taught by few Anglo Indian teachers from Kharagpur. With a lot of effort they managed the school and in the year 1976 when Sri. A.J. Alex was the collector, the school was handed over to Diocese of Sambalpur and Rt. Rev Raphael Chinath Svd, as the chairman.
