Munro College is a prominent boarding school for boys in St Elizabeth, Jamaica. It was founded in 1856 as a free school for poor boys in St. Elizabeth as stipulated in the will of plantation owners Robert Hugh Munro and Caleb Dickenson. It is now the only boarding school for boys in Jamaica.
Munro College takes its name from one of its benefactors and was established in the fashion of the British public school. Several of the boarding houses take the names of other benefactors or illustrious alumni. The campus has its own chapel and magnificent views of the Caribbean sea and Pedro Plains.
Over the years Munro College has distinguished itself as a centre for excellence in secondary education in Jamaica and the Eastern Caribbean. It is reputed to have produced the most Rhode Scholars of any secondary school in the Caribbean.
Although established as a free school for poor boys, Munro used to admit Hampton girls into its 6th Form program but as of the new term of September 2010 it was discontinued. However Hampton School still admits Munro boys into its 6th Form to pursue courses not offered at the different schools.
Hampton School (Jamaica) was founded as a sister school to Munro College for poor girls in the parish.
The school's motto is In arce sitam quis occultabit? - A city set on a hill cannot be hid.
Alumni include many prominent figures in Jamaican society; one of its most notable is former Prime Minister Donald Sangster, others include Kenneth McNeill, Kern Spencer, Oraine Barrett, Morris Cargill, John Cyril Emerson Swaby and Douglas Manley, brother to former Prime Minister Michael Manley. Basil Waite, Opposition Spokesperson on Education is also a graduate of Munro College as is popular journalist Lindy Delapenha, Ruel Reid; Principal of Jamaica College, past head boy and former JTA President, The Honourable Burchell Whiteman, O.J., and Dr Derrick McKoy, lawyer and former Contractor-General.
