Top 10 CBSE schools in Bangalore

Top 10 CBSE schools in Bangalore

Desi is best, you say? Perhaps it is. There’s definitely a need to utilise the resources that are native to our nation. And it’s been long proven that CBSE’s standards are strict, and that they’re good with quality control, especially when it comes to science and math. If you believe that you need to strengthen your child’s knowledge base, starting now, for future Indian competitive exams, this is certainly the way to go. This list, like the one with the top schools in Bangalore, is ranked by Education World.

1. Jain International School, Bangalore:

Featured fourth in our top 10 Bangalore schools, this school’s whopping 300-acre campus is home to 750 students. It sets ethical awareness as a standard for learning, so there’s no way you can go more traditional than this. It begins only at fourth grade, so if your child is starting first grade, keep this school in mind for her to experience luxury education to the fullest: it boasts top class equipment like e-boards, projectors and air-conditioned classrooms. You also have the choice of choosing CIE or IBDP for the 10th and 12th exams if you’d like a variation from the CBSE syllabus.

3. Rashtriya Military School, Bangalore
rastriya military school

The history of this school is fascinating - it’s ancient compared to all our other featured academies: a pre-independence institution. Begun on August 1, 1946 as The King George VI Royal Indian Military College, it changed names five times before it became Rashtriya Military School, Bangalore. A boys-only residential academy, it operates under the Ministry of Defence and aims to train children to enter the National Defence Academy, along with other reputed professional institutes. It starts taking kids only from the sixth grade, though, so keep it on hold if your child is just beginning school.
