St. Paul's is a Catholic school that admits students of all religions. It exempts non-Catholic students from participating in religious practices particular to Catholics. The aim of St. Paul's is all-around development — academic, physical, moral and cultural — of its students into mature and responsible citizens who will be ready to take their rightful place in society.
Saint Paul's School was converted from an all-boys school to a co-education school in 2014. As of 2014, it was the only all-boys school in eastern India. A poll was conducted among the parents of students to decide whether or not to admit girls. The decision was taken by Fr S Joseph for the academic session 2013-14. The first girls were admitted from kindergarten.
The school has a playground with a football ground, a cricket ground, two basketball courts, and five badminton courts. During the winter, many tournaments are organised. The badminton tournament is organized in December.
The school has four houses that compete with each other in sports tournaments.
