    The average results of the school students are excellent which means the teachers gives attention to all students of the class. Compared to other top schools, CBS has to improve in co-curricular activities.

    CBS is a treasure house of education with the most sober teachers, with updated smart boards, a lush green field and old big buildings arranged in a fantastic manner which remembers us of our heritage.It is one of the most ELITE schools in Kolkata located at Moulali, a place which is located at the heart of the city. It is a Christian School with a blend of Anglo-Indian Culture. I hope that this school maintains its pride and Hertitage.

    The name has gone down drastically. This once a famous instituition is just now a money making business place. The students are not only poor in their manners but also are a disgrace to the society. They bully new pupil, and the teachers/ staffs do nothing about it. Please do not admit your child to this once a pride now a horrible place to ruin your child's future. Plus they take a lot of donation. For Class XI they take 50,000 donation. The commerce stream is worst of all. Mostly slum people goes. All yo will learn is some unspeakable slangs. And interestingly the teachers encourage those goons to use those words. Unbelievable. Then almost everyday there are numerous 0 period, basically free periods; when teachers dont show off. And those so called students makes the classroom worse than a fish market. No manners, no etiquette, no discipline. Well that is what can be expected from the backgrounds of where these non senses are coming from. Maths is an important subject and the lady teacher finishes 1/2 chapters in every single class!! Ridiculous! No explanation, nothing. If you still want to enrol your ward to this school, please do so in the SCIENCE stream. Which is good. But never ever to the Rowdy uncultured COMMERCE stream.

    Calcutta Boys School, a school that holds a heritage of one of the best schools of Kolkata for more than 100 years, is also one of the top 10 schools of India putting ICSE + CBSE together. The teachers are well qualified and provides good quality of overall teaching. CBS also has smart digital class rooms and excellent science and computer labs. The school ground is big enough but a little shabby. The school encourage their students to participate in various events and extra curricular activities.
