    Sophia High School is an excellent institution for girls. The teaching and non-teaching staff members and sisters instill moral values, discipline and responsibility in each and every student. The opportunities for exploring one's talents are endless here, and Sophia is, in my opinion, the best school for a child's holistic growth. Sophia's students have not only constantly achieved academic success, but have also shone bright in fields of sports, etc. It's my privileged and honour to be a part of the Sophia family :)

    I write this under an alternate name because my original one would get me into trouble with the authorities but if there is one thing I can say, it is that this institution is among the worst in the city. You are discriminated against if not Christian, teachers show such blatant favouritism it ruins a student's life and they pick an inept student council from a bunch of kids whose parents are part of the PTA/have family members as staff. The teaching is alright except they spend months practicing for useless events like Sports Day (yeah house-rivalries are literally the most pointless things ever) and engage in zero other extra-curricular activities. One or two students get stellar results but most generally get mediocre marks because the number of free periods is higher than those of class instruction. All in all, there's BCGS, there's MAIS, there's TISB, NPS, VSA, VNS and a ton of other schools your child will flourish in and succeed at. Sophia High School is not one of them. You can neglect this review if you plan to waste your money and ruin your child's life.

    Bad Staff. They don't even have curtsey to attend the parents and provide the information. Parents are sent back from the gate itself without giving the proper information. I personally had visited this school twice and I was sent back by the watchman telling the admissions are closed. When called the school even the lady who answered the call also did not give any information and disconnected the call. There were two other parents along with their kids when I had visited and they were also treated the same way. At least the school staff should allow the parents to visit the office and school staff should give them the proper response. I have visited so many schools and nowhere the staff treated this way. i had even visited the Delhi Public School, National Public School, and many other Good schools every school staff treated the parents in a very good manner. I had received a good feedback about Sophia school but my very first experience about this school proved it wrong.
