Don Bosco High School is one of the most reputed schools in this region, well known for its high standard of education, as well as for its academic, sports and overall accomplishments. The school is a minority institution, run by the Salesian Society, and has been recognised right from the outset but gets no grant-in-aid from the government.
The Salesian Province of South India needed a place for an Aspirantate for boys from the Mumbai and Goa Regions. Not many parents were willing to sacrifice sending their sons down to ‘far away’ Tirupattur. Fr. Mauro Casarotti, first sensed this reluctance and understood the problem. He floated Lonavala as the place for the Aspirantate and in June 1962 approval for Stds. 8th and 9th was granted. As the house was not ready, Mr. D.C. Nazir offered the Salesians the use of his bungalow.
