Stewart School is a school located at Mission Road, Buxi Bazar Cuttack, Odisha, India. It is under the management of the Diocese of Cuttack, Church of North India. It was established in 1882 by Dr. William Day Stewart of the government of Odisha Department of Health. Current Principal of the school is Mrs. Asha Das.
Currently the school has approximately 2000 students and 65 teachers. The school is affiliated to CISCE, New Delhi. The school is housed in an imposing complex of double-storeyed buildings. Spacious and airy classrooms, broad corridors, well-equipped laboratories, computer lab, an impressive centenary hall and a first class library-cum-reading room make the school learner-friendly. Well-laid out lawns in front and vast play grounds create an ambiance required for siphoning off pressures of academic pursuit. An affable and dedicated tribe of teachers make the school a second home for the school children. Although our major thrust is on academic excellence, extra-curricular activities are given due emphasis. Sports, N.C.C. and cultural activities have a sobering effect on the minds of pupils. They not only ennoble and embolden the pupils but also foster the spirit of camaraderie. We make sure that everyone participates in games and sports. School Youth festival is an occasion when the whole school becomes aflame with colour. Folk, art and culture forms are jolted out of stupor. The students belonging to four houses vie with one another for honors. Everyone gets saturated with the spirit of competition. The virtuoso display of art forms is a charming vignette of Indian culture and life style. Individual talents get acknowledged and encouraged in all these activities. Monthly quizzes, seminars, debates, exhibitions on philately, numismatics, environment, science etc. dot the academic year. Educational tours are organized invariably every year to give the children maximum exposure. In short, the school remains a beehive of activity round the year.
Apart from the school there is a college named Stewart Science College. It is affiliated with the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations.
The motto of the school is "Domini Timor Prima Sapientia." “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom.” This Biblical verse (Psalm 111:10) is the guiding principle.
There are five Stewart Schools in Odisha under the management of the Diocese of Cuttack, Church of North India. Stewart School, Cuttack, is the oldest among the five.. It consistently has students figuring in the top 10 of Eastern India ICSE schools.
