Baranagore Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama High School (BRKMAHS, informly Baranagar Ramakrishna Mission or Baranagar RKM, ) 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.

The school houses roughly 1100 pupils aged 10 to 16 for secondary section classes V–X. BRKMAHS pupils take the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) in tenth grade and are thereafter offered West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) for the final two years. 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.
