Goethals Memorial School is the place to be in for young boys. Situated in the beautiful little hamlet town of Kurseong, it boasts of a healthy climate, away from the opressing heat of the plains. The atmosphere of the school is very healthy. The teaching faculty is a dedicated lot. Games and extra curricular activities share the same focus. Individual skills are nurtured and given a platform. Meals, both vegetarian and non vegetarian, are nutritious and one of the best that is served in boarding schools. A school, highly recommended, for the holistic development of little boys into responsible young adults. The school motto: DO ALL THINGS WELL.
