Once economically underprivileged and educationally backward, this far flung area of the remote northern part of the country, has something to be proud of in the form of Cantonment Public School and College, BUSMS.
Located in the midst of green foliage and away from the bustle of the city life, it has added new dimensions to the educational and socio–economic life of this region. The people of this region suffered a lot for want of quality education and so they felt an acute need of a better educational institution. With the inception of Cantonment Public School and College BUSMS, the people’s dream to have a standard educational institution came true when the institution started its journey in 1994.
Situated on about 8.10 acres of land, the institution was founded by the then GOC of Rangpur area, Major General Ezaz Ahmed Chowdhury who instituted the academic activities of the school on 25 January, 1995 and since then the institution has been growing year by year with an increasing number of students joining from the far flung corners of greater Rangpur and Dinajpur districts along with the adjoining localities. The institution is now in its third decade as a centre of outstanding reputation.
The institution initiated its academic activities with the school section. The first batch of S.S.C Examinees participated in 1998. The then station commander and the chairman of Governing Body Brig Gen ANM Muniruzzaman made a painstaking effort to take the S.S.C Examination with the cordial co-operation of the then Area Commander.
The College section started functioning in 2000 when the institution expanded its role by offering H.S.C degree. Since then the institution has been going on to impart education of high standard to the people of this part of the country.
Having splendid panoramic views with modern infrastructural facilities comprising an enriched library, modern computer lab, an auditorium of 500 seats, a 3-storied boys’ hostel along with many other modern amenities, Cantonment Public School and College is a graphic example of a proud installation in this region. Cantonment Public School and College can also boast of its excellent academic environment which has been manifested in the results of various Public Examinations. In the field of cultural, sports and many other extra curricular activities, Cantonment Public School and College has an enviable achievement records which are also the manifestations of the sincerity and commitment of a bunch of dedicated people associated with the institution.
