This is a question to which I have posted answers earlier, hence I am reposting for you to easily access. If you want really good school please consider Sholinganallur / Semmencherry which are easily accessible from the area you have specified. 


Here is a list of schools in order of preference and my reviews, I evaluated them when I moved here. Please do not take my reviews at face value, do visit each school, put in the extra effort and do the research for your child -

1. Babaji Vidhyashram Senior Secondary - CBSE Affiliated - Air-conditioned with playground - This school was the the top pick as it met all my requirements such as good track record, good English speaking staff, modern curriculum, reasonable fee with value for money, large playground, hygienic toilets, pollution free location, amazing co-curricular activities - drama, music, dance, NCC etc., I found getting admission here is tough but they have a very transparent process.

2. PSBB Millenium (near DLF) - CBSE Affiliated - Non A/C with playground - This school was my second option, it met most of my requirements such as good functional systems, good track record, medium sized playground, value for money fee etc., It did not meet my expectations on hygienic toilets, pollution free location etc., I found getting admission here is tough but their process is not transparent OR friendly.

3. Ramana Vidyalaya - CBSE Affiliated - Non A/C with playground - This school was not in my list but I visited to evaluate. English speaking staff quality was average, no. of children in the classroom was high, some parents told me hygiene was a problem. I decided not to pursue admission.

4. Sacred Heart - Not sure about affiliation - Non A/C No proper teachers, the school seems to confuse between matriculation & CBSE, English is a major problem, hygiene is a problem.

5. Barathi Vidyalaya - CBSE affiliated - Non A/C without playground - It is one of the oldest schools in this locality, however the curriculum and methodology is not up to date, when I visited I found that hygiene in the toilets is a major problem. English was a problem.

6. Narayana & Chaitanya - Non A/C without playground, affiliated - These schools are the least preferred in my list of reviews. They have no play facility and in this day and age pressurize students and parents like anything with very old style of teaching. Teachers are very poorly qualified and English is non existent. The funny part was that the fee changes from parent to parent and they quoted different figures when I spoke to them on two different occasions.

Once again, please do your own research and do visit each school by yourself. Both my children study in Babaji Vidhyashram for the past several years.

Good luck.

@PB: Hey thanks for the detailed review. Appreciate you taking time on this. I am planning to opt Babaji for my kid (LKG) as I stay close by. Any major cons that you see on that school that I should be wary of?

The only con is that their admission system is very fair and transparent but tough. If you live close by and you are opting for LKG, I think you have a good chance.

Good luck,
