Sophia High School is located on 10 acres in central Bangalore overlooking the Vidhan Soudha and the Bangalore golf course.
In August 1948 when the Internuncio and the Apostolic Delegation shifted to New Delhi, his residence and grounds was taken over by a group of Catholic nuns called the Sisters of Notre Dame. In January 1949, three pioneers of the order, Mother Catherine Andersson, Mother Ivy Bourke and Sister Dorothy Bullen decided to open a school at the only residential building on the grounds, the old "white bungalow". A small Montessori class with 17 students and one qualified teacher was established. About 40% of the students admitted were not Indian nationals.
Since 1949 Sophia's has grown significantly. The old "white bunglow" was remodelled in 1998. The school's current enrollment is over 2,000 students. The school is not a religious organization and its students, who are chosen through a competitive interview process, hail from many different ethnicities.
There are five main buildings; Cuvilly(middle school), Duschene(high school), Julie(pre-primary), Barat(primary) and the ISC block(+2). The Cuvilly building houses the enormous auditorium, a new venture which has proven to be hugely successful. It was formerly known as the Mater Building.
