    I will forever be indebted to my school. Whatever I am today is because of BHS. I would like to stress on the fact that the teachers are really very good and whatever they do is for our own good. Apart from academics there is ample focus on extra curricular activities which is more important nowadays. Consider BHS while deciding on a school for your child. The institution truly lives up to "We grow from strength to strength".

    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.
