Greenwood High - Bangalore

11 reviews by parents


My child attended Greenwood High International School (Sarjapur Rd. Campus) for 5 years and was part of the ICSE curriculum and then the IGCSE program.  We have mostly had a good experience there as far as the calibre and commitment of teachers go.  They were open and approachable and made an effort to explain concepts and curriculum.  We did not witness any churn and there was continuity through the year.  However, we were disappointed by the way cases of indiscipline, bullying, and bad behaviour were handled by the class-teachers.  They seemed reluctant to take strict actions and did not want to get involved in student matters.  My child was bullied both verbally and physically and I had to take it up with the Principal and Coordinator before something happened.  I would like to give due credit to Mr. D


I have been looking for the reputed ICSE school for my daughter in Bangalore. Today, I visited the Greenwood High, Bannerghatta Road campus. The school has a large campus and the school's administrative manager showed me a large sports complex is under construction. I also checked the large library and the well managed cafeteria. The school truly has world class infrastructure.


The fee structure of Greenwood High International School is a bit high. But then I have surveyed among Bangalore schools and found that most leading ICSE schools in Bangalore have a similar fee structure. My nephew had a deep interest in sports and the school gave him plenty to opportunities to show his skills in Football, Badminton and Basketball. The school has achieved a good reputation among top ISC, ICSE schools in Bangalore in terms of ISC-ICSE results success and my nephew has achieved high marks by studying in this school. Apart from his own merit and efforts, I think the teachers of the schools deserve a credit.


Nine years ago I relocated to Bangalore all the way from Delhi. I was looking for the right school to get my son admitted while fears lingered around the quality of education. My colleague suggested the name of Greenwood High International School, one of the best ICSE schools in Bangalore. I checked out its ICSE result and was impressed. Also, I visited the Sarjapur Road campus. I found the school had lots of facilities like library, laboratories, sports facilities, cafeteria, transport. I also spoke with the teachers and got the initial impression that they were really caring. My kids were admitted soon after my queries and today I am feeling happy about what they have learnt over the years.


By any means its not an international school. Parents looking for international school education and experience for their children should stay away from this school. I enrolled my child and pulled her out in one year. Their teachers aren't experienced enough to handle students coming for International education. There is no reason for any parent to pay such a hefty money when they are using same teachers for AISSCE board and IGCSE. I was called to school for petty issues such as.... takes too much time for Lunch.. talks to friends on facebook. They even forced open her facebook account in front of all and read her messages, My child felt humiliated, depressed and choked due to repeated complaints by the school and her experience was worst than the public school she came from. This school may be okay (I dont know) for All India board buy no where close to any standard of an International school. The reason parents admit their kids to these expensive schools for not only studying from different books but overall development which is completely missing in this school. Therefore, parents inspiring for International education for their children should stay away from Greenwood High. Just don't be fooled by their infrastructure. Principal is sweet mouthed to impress parents but in actual he has no clue what's happening and how his teachers are dealing with students under International curriculum. 


Our initial view is very positive. The school has good infrastructure, good facilities, the principal seemed very sorted and the school seems to have their priorities right. We begin next month and will post our experiences here


My son was 5+ last year when we moved in from Chandigarh. I visited about 25 schools in Bangalore and narrowed down to 2 schools out of which one was greenwood high. Our parameters were low student to teacher ratio, good infra, good mix of studies and extra curricular activities and option of Hindi as second language My wife and son both liked the school. Since October 2010, my son is going to Greenwood high. Initially we felt that there no studies happening at all and were thinking of going to school to discuss the lack of studies, but then when once the books came home, we saw that all was fine on the studies front also.Our son never used to tell us. We are very happy with the overall development of our son. The school offers yoga, chess, swimming,music, taekwondo for all the students and it keeps them occupied and happy. the studies are also good. The teachers and Principal are very responsive to any queries you may have or any issue you would like to discuss with them. The fees is a little on the higher side, but then I guess that most of the schools are also charging something near to that only. So I would definitely say that we made a right choice of the school, as not even a single day my son has said that he does not want to go to school and is very happy with his school.


We changed my daughter's school after a lot of deliberation. She was in a school that was located in the heart of the city and when we moved to Whitefield, we were really apprehensive about changing schools. It actually took us three years to make that 'big move'. We moved from the circus of dropping and fetching my daughter to the comfort of getting a bus pick-up:-) I must say that we're pretty happy with Greenwood High. We like the fact that they have a good combination of academic focus with co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The kids get to participate in various activities that bring out their aptitude and talent. The teachers are nice. There is a good mix of gentle handling and discipline. The teachers inculcate the right values in the children and take good care of them. Of course, there are a few issues that crop up, like the GPS system not working, or the uniform delivery people not delivering on time, but then the school management does take action and resolves issues that we report. We're happy!


I'm very disappointed with the school. Academiclly its no great shakes. despite charging us high fees most parents have to resort to private tuition . They claim to have all the sports facilities but they do not have the right coaches . the children who go to private sports clubs outside the school are picked hence ensuring less work for the coaches. They start up with hare brained schemes which do nothing for the child's development but only fill up the coffers of various externalagencies. i'm seriously considering changing schools. so parents please learn from my mistakes. It's a bad product packaged well and marketed very smartly.


And so our quest for deciding the school for our daughter ended when we entered the green gates of Greenwood high, Sarjapur Road School. My 3.5 YO daughter had been going to Shemrock Preparatory school for 2 yrs -playschool and pre-nursery. We went over a weekend to visit the premises and the facilities in the school with my daughter in tow. The first reaction was, wow, this is a nice place. YEs! For those, who are deciding on finalizing the schools from abroad, this school has that appeal. We were taken around the by admission officer, shown the facilities and the classrooms, the exam centre, sports complex and the swimming pool, labs, play ground, cafeteria. We decided to get into Greenwood after having a word with the ‘to-be-class teacher’ for my daughter. Next day, we went again to meet the teachers, who after some observation suggested that my daughter could join LKG as she knows most of stuff already! My daughter was happy to go in the class room with her teacher, and the next day and since then, she’s been happy to go to school. Whole process took around 1.3lac. For 50K –registration,56K-tution plus misc fees for full yr, 30K for transport for full yr. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for overall development of their child and not just scores in Xth exam. As I learnt, some of their students have got into state level swimming, chess tournaments. Some plays and direction by the director of ‘The Lion King’. So far so good. Will keep posted of my exp in this blog. Happy Schooling!


My daughter goes to Greenwood High grade 2. I find the school well balanced with a good mix of extra curricular activities and ICSE curriculum. I think the school is still trying to organize itself and is taking adequate steps to build credibility. Right now it is wait and see for us.
