• "Welcome to Popular High School - Margao"


    Popular High School, established in the year 1931 in the heart of the city of Margao, boasts of a glorious past, triumphant present and a prospective future for its pupils in academics, extra – curricular, sports and recreational activities. We at Popular School believe that the first step in correctly shaping a child’s future is to create the right cultural atmosphere around him in which he can thrive and succeed and hence we are always committed to nurture such an environment.


    I feel happy and proud to welcome you all in the family of Popular High School Margao. Popular High School is one of the oldest schools in Margao. It was founded on 12th May 1931 by the founders Shri Pundalik B. Naik and Shri Teofilo D`Costa. There were only 116 pupils on the roll in 1930-31. The school was later administered by late Shri Sadanand P. Naik and late Shri Nagesh S. Naik. I joined this school as the head of the school in June 2008 with a vision and determination to bring back the glory, name and fame this school once basked in. In the preceding years the school had seen a progressive fall in its population and academic results. It was a challenging task but not an impossible one. A goal was set in a passionate mind. Support and cooperation from the staff, inspiration, good will and help rendered by Ex-student`s Association, trust of the parents in us, and discipline and faith in the students resulted in bringing back the praise and appreciation to the school. Students of this school have been exposed at state, National and international levels in sports, academics, art and culture and have dazzled in all these levels in recent times. They have brought accolades to the school. It is said that, “Fortune favours the brave”. Challenges accepted, risks taken, vision set and facilities provided made all the achievements possible. I am thankful, proud and privileged to work with both long serviced and experienced staff and also with the young, enthusiastic and creative ones. Dedication and Determination of the staff, Strong Support from the Management, blessings and good wishes from well wishers and good conduct and discipline from the students has enabled POPULAR HIGH SCHOOL in taking huge leaps towards being one of the top schools in the city of Margao. With the continued vigor and enthusiasm and passionate minds working together, this school aspires to be the Best and the Most Desired School in the city of Margao in the years to come.
