St. Louis School
179 Third Street

St. Louis School was first started as a trade and technical school in 1864 by the Fathers of the Catholic Mission who chose St. Aloysius as the Patron Saint of the school, and hence its name. They were succeeded by the Christian Brothers since 1875, taken over by the Maryknoll Fathers in 1921 and then the Salesian Fathers in 1927, the year now regarded as the founding year of the present school. The school comprises four wings, namely East, North, Central and West, of which the oldest is the East, probably built by 1927 in the Art Deco style. The North Wing was severely damaged by typhoon in 1936 and rebuilt in the same year. St. Louis School became an English grammar school in 1948. The Central and West Wings were subsequently constructed and opened in 1951 and 1969 respectively.
