        Pretty good school owned and operated by the Birlas, and their performance in various competitions, debates, contests, etc. are pretty good. Located at a central place, near Bellevue Clinic. School timings of the schools located in the adjacent areas are nearly same, causing massive traffic jam, especially after the closing hours.

Apart from academics there is ample focus on extra curricular activities which is more important nowaday...more
