The introduction of the seventh in 1936 raised the school to the level of a high school and only the introduction of the matriculation class was needed to make this complete. This is however only a matter of course as the school now possessed an up-to-date laboratory built at the cost of Rs. 3,500 which was a legacy of the Late manager, Rev. C. A. Pereira and a class library that has been presented by Dr. M. C. Gheewala, and thus all the major obstacles in the way of its progress have been removed. There are at present 218 students on the roll and the scanty accommodation makes it impossible to admit more while the need of a larger and more commodious building was badly felt. The reports of the Inspector of European Schools have always been encouraging

The school has been visited by Lady Brabourne and the Late Archbishop Lima who on the 23rd of February 1936 , opened the laboratory and the class library. On that occasion, he paid a warm tribute of praise and gratitude to the former managers and principals of the school for all that they had done in the past to raise the standard and increase its efficiency – It had always been his desire, he said, to have a high school in Thane and he was sure that under its present management this wish was soon to be fulfilled.”
