If you are in Madhapur area then i would suggest Manthan International or CGR, The Shree Ram School looks promising.
Finally Rockwell and Phoenix Greens.

My son studied in Manthan International madhapur branch and i have no complains but all praises.

@ shrey7, hi, i would like to know about manthan school from existing parents. you have mentioned your son studied, does that mean he is now in different school? please let me know.

ParthuMom 2017-10-27 20:07:57



Hope you have seen my post!

I did not tag you before (like now), so wondering if you will be alerted...




ParthuMom 2017-10-27 23:35:08



Thanks for your suggestion.

I am glad you mentioned about Shri ram school. I have not  heard of it before, it was never in my radar of research. But now, after you mentioned I read about the school and liked it. I am actually a great fan of Lady shri ram college in delhi, I know few people who have passed out from their and liked the standards there. Was totally ignorant of this school, until you mentioned. THANKS A TON, for that!!! :)


ParthuMom 2017-10-27 23:38:09



With regards to your feedback on Manthan -

Can you elaborate a bit on it? The fact that Manthan is very close to me, but I am concerned or ignorant of it, because, they don't have a big playground.

Also you said, your son 'studied' there - so, where is he now? and any reasons why you chose to change the school?

Hi Bhavitha and All,
It is nice to see you all interacting and helping each other.
Well, you have done enough research I must admit...:).. seeing that detailed list of schools !

You can try for HPS- Begumpet as it starts from Class 1. As it has lottery system, you have to keep other options open too.

DPS- Khajaguda is good. I know many kids from this school who are well behaved and  groomed. I think one shouldn't go by some negative feedback. If time permits, do interact with a few students and parents of DPS.  
Weigh the pros n cons to decide. It is difficult to find a 'Perfect' school.  Good or bad is a relative term and it differs from parent to parent.  

Hillside is affordable and offers all-round development. I am not sure of Meridian-Madhapur's current status.

Out of CGR, Global Edge, Manthan and Glendale, Glendale could be preferred followed by Manthan.
Manthan doesn't have a big playground but its reviews are quite positive. Glendale would be far if you plan to stay at Madhapur.

Apart from the schools that you mentioned, Phoenix Greens in Gachibowli  could also be preferred. One of my friends has joined her son in PG recently and is quite happy.

Keep a track of BVB and Obul Reddy forms too. 

Chirec and Oakridge are quite expensive. You can fill their enquiry forms online and get the details. Getting into these schools shouldn't be a problem. Please meet the admission in-charge.

If time permits, do through my blog of selecting a school. It might help you.

Hi Ameena,
You could try DSE- Attapur/Mehdipatnam   as it will be closer to Masab Tank.

You could also try P Obul Reddy , Meridian  and DSE in Banjara Hills. They are good CBSE schools.

Thanks but could u plz tell me regarding sri chaitanya jubilee hills branch its cbse itseems as i am looking forward for her to prepare for competitive exam . Hope she will be used to it from grade 9 onwards... what's ur Suggestion

vmadhav 2017-10-31 15:00:10


Hello Mickey,

Can you suggest CBSE schools around Srinagar Colony, 5-6 kms radius.

mickey 2017-10-31 22:02:24


Hi VMadhav,
You could look for schools in Banjara Hils /Jubilee Hills/Ameerpet /Begumpet like
BVB, JHPS, P Obul Reddy, Meridian,  Sister Nivedita , Chinmaya Vidyalaya .
In Srinagar colony, you will find Kausalya Global. 

Hi Ameena,
Are you looking for grade 9 ? Chaitanya and Narayana have long working hours . Pl check out the timings and see if your child is okay with the timings. It becomes quite stressful. Academics are given more importance and you wouldn't find many activities when compared to other schools. If it is ok with you, you could go ahead.  



prisha23 2017-10-31 23:13:18


Hi Mickey ,I m looking out for pp1 for my daughter ....wanted to know abt nasr and Vidya Vinalaya or any other gud school near abids himayat Nagar area

Vini24 2017-11-01 07:38:42


Hi mickey,

looking for PP2 admission for my daughter. How is arbor international school . Please suggest 

vmadhav 2017-11-01 14:56:58


Whats your opinion on Hillside

mickey 2017-11-01 16:38:06


Hi VMadhav,
Hillside is a Pearson school ...quite good and budget friendly....

Hi Prisha, 
Prefer Nasr. You could also opt for George's Grammar Girls School (ICSE) or Oxford Grammar School (CBSE) in Abids.

Hi Vini,
The ratings of Arbor have been good. The school follows the X Seed methodology from Nursery to Grade V and regular CBSE curriculum for the other classes.



Vini24 2017-11-01 17:17:22


@ Mickey thanku for your suggestion. But one more thing is I am actually in a dielemma between Shriram and arbor.

Though at first I was hesitant to Shriram looking at its fee structure but got impressed reading its reviews. 
And Arbor as you said ratings are good.

Can u suggest me among these.


magantishyam 2017-11-02 20:03:13

Hello Mickey,

Can you suggest from one of the school. Don't want to go more than 10KM distance from home. Also confuse around CBSE/Cambridge/IB board. I heard Cambridge is tough and but kids can adjust to CBSE later .Is it ok if they study till 5th or 6th for CB and later join CBSE curriculum.

a) Manthan-Tellapur ( Cambridge) -11KM-2.4L:-  ( till 8th Cambridge) 
b) Canary ( IB) :-5 Km- 1.85L 
c) Kennedy ( CBSE) -11KM- 2L (?).  Admission process not started and again they will have lottery system
d) Phonix-Green( CBSE) -24KM ( 2L):-

Hi Mickey,

First, thanks a lot for answering and sharing lot of info on parentree as this is very helpful for new parents like me. 

Could you give your opinion about schools around manikonda as I don't want my kid to travel too far and my budget is tight as well. So, what's your suggestion about below. I am looking for a school which would help in holistic development of my daughter without loosing lot my savings.

1. Scholars International school (alkapur township)
2. DPS khajaguda (seems high budget and very strict)
3. Bhavan's film nagar (last choice as it is 8 km away from my home if the above 2 aren't considered)
