Baranagore Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama High School (BRKMAHS, informly Baranagar Ramakrishna Mission or Baranagar RKM, audio speaker iconpronunciation ) or Baranagore Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama High School (H. S.) is a boys-only higher secondary private school in Baranagar, West Bengal, India. The school was founded by Yogindranath Tagore, a student of Swami Brahmananda in 1912.[3][9][10]

The school houses roughly 1100 pupils aged 10 to 16 for secondary and higher secondary section classes V–XII.[3] BRKMAHS pupils take the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) in tenth grade[6] and are thereafter offered West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) for the final two years.[5] The school began offering the twelfth grade higher secondary curriculum in 2018, before which all pupils had to sit the secondary examination for tenth grade.
