School is the temple of learning and St. Joseph’s has become a brand name in and around Patancheru for the past 32 years. Students are taught to be winners in their lives by the management and the dedicated staff. In common examinations we are getting the top results in the district and even in the state. We are able to achieve this success only by the trust of the parents, the hard work of students, teachers and the management.

St. Joseph’s High School, strive to give a complete formation to all the students. It combines study with training in Arts, Sports, Computers, Cultural and Social activities leading to the total development of the person.

We believe that education necessarily includes a spiritual dimension. All the students are offered a couple of classes in value education in order to build their character. Personal counselling is given to required students. Professional guidance is given by experts to build up confidence in students to face the future.

We intend to foster a good rapport between parents, teachers and the pupils for the overall growth of the pupils in an atmosphere of mutual trust and openness.

The parents of the students constitute an integral part of St. Joseph’s community. Others, who play a vital role in the education of the student community, are the school management, teachers and the students themselves. It is proposed to have regular meetings involving all these vital elements to discuss problems relating to education. Parents are welcome to meet the class teacher and the principal with an appointment.

Saint Joseph Freinademetz, parton saint of our school, was born at OIES, Itally, on 15th April 1852, ordained a priest on 25th July 1875, he went to China in 1878. The first SVD missionary to china... made himself a part and parcel of the Chines and died there on 28th January 1908. He was a man of prayer. He was totally dedicated to God's will. He was canonized by the Pope John Paul-II along with the founder of the Society of the Divine Word, Saint Arnold Janseen, on October 5th 2003.

St. Joseph's High School was founded on 24th August, 1984 by Rev. Fr. Joseph Puthumana, S.V.D. The School began with 40 in L.K.G and 16 in U.K.G. in rented rooms; Fr. Puthumana had to surmount various obstacles to put the new school in a firm footing before he retired in August 1990.

The Motto of St. Joseph's High School is "Go and Teach All Nations".  It is a Minority Educational Institution, run by the Divine Wind Missionaries (S.V.D. SOCIETAS VERBI DIVINI), who serve millions of people, irrespective of their nationality, colour, religion, caste.
