In 2014, we did our 1st ever Parent Survey to find the most preferred schools for parents in Bangalore. Over the last 2 years, our 30 Top Schools in Bangalore post has helped thousands of parents find and focus on the right school for admissions of their kids. Since, it had been two year from our previous survey, we decided to go all out again in putting an updated, more researched & larger list of some top school in Bangalore so that it can serve a larger base of parents all across Bangalore.

(The survey only included CBSE, ICSE & International Schools)

To help you understand what these parameters indicate, here are some basic guidelines on which we built our framework for the Survey.

1) Academics – We not only included to see if students were performing well, but whether they were able to increase their performance over time with their teachers’ help and guidance, and special initiatives that were specially designed to help these kids.

2) Co-curriculars – We focused on the number of such activities undertaken at a school but also the quality of these programs and if these were actually impacting kids positively. 1) Academics – We not only included to see if students were performing well, but whether they were able to increase their performance over time with their teachers’ help and guidance, and special initiatives that were specially designed to help these kids.

3) Extra Curriculars – Similarly, in our survey, we asked about the quality of the extra-curriculars and if people (parents and students) felt these programs had the quality and capability to produce experts and world class champions in various fields.

4) Eco-system – As a parameter, this was the closest to our heart and is about the atmosphere inside the school premises, the classrooms, teacher behaviour, the rigour of classwork/homework, and other such points conducive for learning to happen in an intuitive manner in the most stress-free environment.

P.S. – Your feedback on our work is utmost welcome. We have not done this listing in collaboration with any other organization, nor for any monetary benefit. Our whole purpose is to present information to you in the best possible manner and ensure it is of actual benefit for you and your kids.

      I don’t know about bishop’s(i have heard positive things about this school too)…but I being a sophiate myself would always tell studying is Sophia High School for 13 years has really helped me mould both my academics and and in my personality development. So please don’t have any second thought if you want your child to study at Sophia’s…your daughter would blossom into a confident young lady in all ways – Drushya Dinesh

    Hi all, Thanks for the list, but before ranking these schools one has to consider the fee structure and also the distance of these schools from key areas. these are very important parameters in deciding whether a school is good or not. From the general talk in town most of these schools are way beyond the reach of an even above average earner setup.
