“A school is a building with four walls with the future within”. Our mission is to impart quality education in the areas of curricular and extra-curricular activities to the utmost satisfaction of students and parents. We educate children as responsible and unifying members of the world community in the spirit and charisma of St.John. We expect the teacher and the student to be informed and exposed to the latest technologies.
We believe there are four steps to ACHIEVEMENT:
We envisage that it is not enough to stare up the stairs. One must step up the stairs to achieve success. At St John’s we work as a team and help our students climb those steps independently ,nurturing them at every step with values of Determination, Dedication, Devotion & Discipline to help them become better WORLD citizens.
A dream becomes a goal when action is taken towards achievements. Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice.
A process of self – actualization and learning that combines an individual’s mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual growth – is our vision and mission.

St. John the Baptist High School and Junior College is a Catholic school in the city of Thane, Maharashtra, India dedicated to St. John the Baptist. It also has a school for children in need of special care. It is administered by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mumbai. The school is affiliated to the Mumbai Division Board of Secondary and Higher Education. The school/college aims at the education primarily of the Catholic community around and to the extent possible of the members of all the communities.
It was built in 1905 beside the church of the same name (built in 1663 at the same site of the old St. Anthony's Church). Built to serve Portuguese children, it was reorganized into an English school, and recognised by the Education Department as an English Teaching High School in 1938 .
The school building was due to the foresight of the reverend Pascal D'Souza. Following a stay in the United States, he worked to give a try to the broad based American system of education. The growth of the institution required a new building for St. John's School. The stately three-storeyed building, with wings spread out to the right and left, capped by an open air terrace, sprang up within a period of two and a half years thanks to the supervision of D'Souza and the efforts of architect Vyom Keshav of “Studio Arch”. D'Souza was not destined to give the final touches to it. He collapsed due to a heart attack. His remains rest on the school campus. The reverend Valerian Godinho stepped into the shoes of D'Souza. His first task was to supervise the finishing of the school building. The first students used the building in 1966.
At the request of the Educational Department, a junior college was attached to the high school from June 1979. Science and Commerce classes of the junior college started in 1979. In 1980 junior college Science and Commerce classes opened
