Anon AnonReview based on friends/family/personal experiencewrote a review on February 7, 2020 3:09 AM
This is a review from an alumini of this school. Overall, it is a terrible school. Teachers are biased, sometimes bullies and grossly incompetent. They have no idea what they're doing sometimes. The infrastructure is amazing and breathtaking. You will fall in love with the school's classrooms and such. The washrooms are very clean and hygienic. The management is horrible, teaching is average and extra curriculars are not given any importance and oppurtunuties are biased. The library is amazing and fully equipped. If you win something, get ready to regret winning it. We have four groups, eminence, excellence, brilliance and radiance. They will only see which group wins through track and nothing else eill matter. It will ne baised and only excellence and brilliance will win every year. School taught me life is very unfair.My memory of school was very nice thanks to the students and horrible thanks to teachers in the last two years.

Social teachers have no idea what they are teaching. Marks are given more importance than knowledge.
Vakula GovindarajanReview based on friends/family/personal experiencewrote a review on October 29, 2018 12:59 AM
Poor teaching at Senior secondary level. The school needs to employ more efficient staffs who impart proper education and also help the students to understand the concepts. The students should be trained and educated in such a manner that they are able to apply the knowledge in practical scenarios as well. For which reworking the illustrations alone will not help. The school needs to focus more on academics rather than on the extra curricular activities. The basics that they learn at the senior secondary level will help them in future. The management needs to look into this and ensure that the teachers are actually helping the students in gaining knowledge rather than pushing them to score top marks. Marks without any knowledge is a total waste after all. The school needs to implement a proper students feedback system, which will bring to the knowledge of the management, the level (quality) of teaching.
Prasad OmprakashReview based on friends/family/personal experiencewrote a review on July 24, 2018 1:25 AM
