      Sad administrators
      The school can never be in the league of other best schools of Kolkata one of the core reason being bad administrators. Let me share an incident… my daughter is in ukg and today on the way she wasn’t keeping well and wanted to drink water.. I took the bottle out from her bag and left it in the car. So while she was entering the gate I took a fraction of a second to check if the bottle was still in her bag… in the process the “headmistress” was behind me entering the school… she stopped giving a stern look and in a Pretty rude tone said ‘ haato ekhan theke’ to top that the security came across as a body guard and started yelling on why was I standing in front of the gate for even less than a second ?!? Like really ?? Is this the way they are supposed to behave with parents ?? Firstly I found no difference in both their behavious .. and secondly I’m surprised there is not a bare minimum decorum of interacting with a parent by the head mistress… I think instead of big lectures they give to students they should LEAD BY EXAMPLE… the way she addresses to the teachers in front of kids during dispersal doesn’t set the right example… this is really saddening and makes me doubtful if this is the right school I chose for my kid…

      I have been studying in this school for last 13 years. I took admission in 2005 in class Kg. The school is great. Though it's a girls school still we have been given the exposure of the outer world. The school has developed a lot in these years. The changes were more evident after Ma'am Sangeeta Tandon became the principal. Both the primary and secondary section is good. Teachers are sincere in their job. Many co-curricular activities are there( though one can never learn it completely). The teachers are very casual in these areas. Swimming, French and German department are not good. Karate classes are just for time pass. The clasrooms are moderate. Overall the enviornment for study is good here. Few teachers were always available to us through whatsapp. Till class 10 the life here is bliss.Today whatever I am, I am because of this school. Ma'am Sarita Bhattacharya I would like to thank you for your support and faith in me. Ma'am I will miss you. I am not going for the description of the campus as you will get it in many other reviews. Then comes high secondary. Mark my words: may be however good you have heard this school and college is but trust me the science departmemt of Sikshayatan is worst. My worst decision was to study Science here. If you are an engineering or medical aspirant then Sikshayatan is the worst choice you can ever make. I am saying this from my experience. 95% attendence is compulsory here. If you take tution in Fitjee/Akash don't let the teachers know about it ever. It wouldn't be wise to name the teachers but there is one who makes everyone's life tough. You will get her as class teacher either in 11 or 12...so you can do anything but can't escape from her. Like the way she will taunt you daily and your parents during ptm is really annoying. I feel there is communication gap between teachers and students. Teachers are unable to impart knowledge to studdnts. If you want to go for Iit/ Aims abort Sikshayatan. HVM is a better choice as it is like a dummy school. I firmly believe that the Science department here needs improvement. Every year they just play with the careers of 80 students. Basically Sikshayatan is good at all stages except Science in class 11&12. Ps: I tried my best to convey the correct senario to the readers. Thank you.
