CST, Darjeeling was set up in 1961. Initially, the school was in the NBMR building which belonged to the Ministry of Defence. There were old rented buildings too viz ‘Digpatia ‘ ’ Ray Villa’ and ‘Kailash’. Later on, it was known as N.R society. In 1966 NBMR was demolished and new block with 10 class- rooms and Multi-Purpose Hall were constructed.  Three-storied building also came up. So, the school had a Girls’ Hostel, Boys’ Hostel Dormitory, Dispensary, Class-Rooms, Computer Lab, Science lab, Sports Room, Music and Dance Room etc. The school also had Primary and Secondary Block and Staff Quarters. Overall, the school enjoys good infrastructural facilities now.

At present the school is up to +2 with three disciplines viz Arts, Commerce, Hospitality & Tourism. The CCA, CCE, BS & G and Sports are the regular features of the school for the all- round personality development of the students.

The emphasis is given to preserve and promote the rich Tibetan Cultural Heritage by inculcating human values.
