    MHS is the only of its kind. The school has got several great traditions of its own which help the students grow in all aspects of life. There are many Hermonites out there who've excelled in their career & lives. As the school moto goes, "Non Scholae, Sed Vite, Discimus", which translates to 'Not for school, but for life we learn'.

    Mount Hermon the name still gives me an adrenaline rush. Everyday in Mount Hermon is a different one the architecture is by far the best among all Anglo Indian schools although it has not been able to cope up with its standard but still it's an excellent school where teachers are like your family members learning becomes so easy over there and since it's a co-ed school with a high standard you learn how to talk, walk and be a gentleman towards women who are also very much going to be successful in life. As for the education it wasn't good a few years ago but now it's returning to its normal glory as the I.C.S.E batch of 2017 set a high score with no one failing and the lowest percentage being sixty which is an impossible feat for other schools in the hills to achieve and when you join Mount Hermon there's nothing like it you are going to regret joining it because you'll never want to leave. Once a hermonite always a hermonite and a successful person in life.
