All the teachers in this section have completed Anglo-Indian teachers training. Special efforts are made by the teachers to improve the standard of English. Apart from studies students actively participate in club activities, arts and sports programmes, festivals and celebrations.

Secondary section consists of classes 8, 9 and 10. For the past many years, St Michael’s has been getting cent percent pass in the SSLC exam and this shows the excellent performance of the students in academic matters. In the secondary section students participate more actively in different programmes. Many students are members of clubs and voluntary organizations.

There is cordial relationship between students and teachers. Remedial coaching is given to weaker students. Outreach programmes and study tours help the students to know more about the society.
St Michael’s School became a full fledged Higher Secondary School in the year 2000. Though the school had the plus two block ready in 1998 itself, the course was sanctioned only in 2000 August. There are three batches in the puls two section, namely Biology (Maths-Phy-Che–Bio), Computer Science (Maths-Phy-Che-Computer science) and Commerce (Accountancy-Economics-Business Studies-Computer Application). All the three batches have 50 seats each. The first batch which passed out in 2002 added a golden feather to the cap of the school with a cent percent victory. Both in academic and non-academic fields our students have set up a unique example of excellence. One of the driving forces behind this achievement is the dedicated and innovative role of the teachers. All together there are 17 teachers and three assistants in HSS.
Different kinds of empowerment programmes are conducted for the growth and development of the students. The regular and systematic activities like tutorial groups, remedial coaching, unit tests, terminal examinations, camps , seminars, interactive programmes, visit to the old age homes and orphanages etc strengthen the character of the students and broaden their outlook. The higher secondary section has got very good infra-structure facilities such as library, laboratories, audio visual room etc. Many of our passed out students get admitted to professional courses and many others are well placed in top positions beyond the seas.
