Arsikere is a town surrounded by hills and coconut     groves in Hassan district in Karnataka. Mr K.S. Chandrashekar, President of the Rotary club, with other luminaries of Arsikere town met Mother Macrina, the then Superior General who was on her visitation at St Martha’s, Mudigere and expressed their need for an English Medium School.
Making use of the opportunities, the Bethany Sisters decided to open its branch at Arsikere having attended to the necessary formalities with the Bishop of Mysore. To meet this need providentially, a well wisher had donated a piece of land with a small house to the sisters. Thus the Bethany pioneering team of Sisters embarking on this new venture on December 31, 1963 with Sr Mida as the Superior and Sr Lourdes one of the four Founding members of Bethany being part of this team, set foot on the soil of Arsikere. It was on the New Year day of 1964, the residence of the Sisters was blessed under the patronage of Blessed Virgin Mary.

The 25 tiny tots became the nucleus of a much sought educational institution with a rented building in the heart of the town under the name of St Mary’s School. Later the management purchased 7acres of land in Henjagonahalli away from the hustle and bustle of the town for this purpose. As years rolled by the strength of the school increased.

St Mary’s educational institution which started with 25 students today beams forth with over 1500 students and 28 dedicated teachers who strive towards the formation of a humane and healthy society by radiating the goal and vision of BES core values. Emphasis is laid on ‘Transformative Education for fullness of life.’ Preferential love and option for the poor is manifested in the admission policy and fee-pattern. The educational Institution keeps progressing under the watchful care of Sr Jennifer in Primary section.

The school believes in quality education, stress on discipline and facilities for co-curricular activities. The students have scope to achieve academic excellence. The annual orientation for teachers, regular parent-teacher meets and co-operation from parents have helped both teachers and students to perform well in academic as well as

extended activities.
