Currently the school has 3 streams with an enrolment of 460 students, 23 TSC Teachers, 5 BOM teachers and 17 support staff. The school prides itself of being an ICT centre.
The Board of Management initiated a boarding section in June 2012 with 65 Form 4 students. Many were happy with this initiative of giving girls more quality time for studies. Boarding minimizes time wastage, and eradicate absenteeism as well as truancy.
The Loreto Sisters have since built a Hostel for the girls. This hostel is exemplary; only 6 students sharing a cubicle.
By September 2015, the school will be full boarding. This will improve the academic performance and discipline of students as a whole.
