October 12, 2010 at 11:20 am 35 comments

It is that time of the year in Bangalore, where parents are trying to find best school possible for their child. We have been running a program on where we are alerting parents when bangalore school admissions open up for 2011 batch.

The following is a list of top 10 schools, in terms of popularity among members:

  1. National Public School, Indiranagar
  2. Delhi Public School Sarjapur, Bangalore East
  3. National Public School, HSR Layout
  4. National Public School, Koramangala
  5. Delhi Public School, South
  6. Bishop Cotton Boy’s School
  7. Bethany High School
  8. Bishop Cotton Girls’ School
  9. Frank Anthony Public School
  10. New Horizon Public School

Do you agree with this list? Which other school do you think deserves to be in the top 10? Please leave your comments below.

    What about Delhi Public School North

  • 2. Raghu  |  October 13, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Can you please also comment on what is the basis of this assessment. Cannt understand how DPS South made it to 5th place and schools like Kumarans is not even in 10! It will help if rating can be made more transparent.

  • 3. Rakesh  |  October 13, 2010 at 11:45 am

    @Raghu –
    The ranking here is based on how many members signed up for admission alerts for a particular school. It is probably not a perfect ranking system, but gives some indication.

    If we add up interest in all Kumarans schools, then it would come up in top 10.

    @Soniya –
    DPS North doesn’t show up in top 10 based on the popularity among members.

    • 4. Soniya  |  October 13, 2010 at 2:57 pm

      What is the rating of DPS North?

      • 5. Rakesh  |  October 13, 2010 at 5:40 pm

        DPS North is at number 15.

  • 6. chaitalee  |  October 13, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    The ranking needs to be more scientific or objective – have a few criterias – method of teaching, teacher attrition rate etc.

  • 7. Vinita  |  October 13, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    This list is fine.. But i strongly feel Ryan International School should also have been on top 10 !!

  • 8. Jenny  |  October 13, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    What is the ranking of Ryan International School, Bannerghatta road?

  • 15. sunita  |  October 18, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Pl don’t rate schools based on alerts in your website!! This is almost funny – I heard of your site only a month ago and went ahead and registered for some alerts – so in a way I contributed to the schools of my choice/vicnity being the best in Bangalore – without yet sending my 2-year old to a school! All that the rating means is that these schools are in areas with a lot of parents using the internet to get information on schools – and then chose 3pundits to do so – how the schools actually teach, how their students fare, what facilities they have, how affordable they are for most parents – none of these are reflected anywhere. For instance, its easy to see that most of the schools are in B’lore south/east with a huge IT crowd that has to depend on the net for feedback as they might not have studied in Bangalore themselves and do not really care about excellent schools in the other end of the city.
    Apart from getting more clicks/links to your site from anxious parents already feeling harassed by the admission process – its doing a disservice by spreading incorrect information! I may be using strong words because I really thought your alert-system could be a great help to parents trying to keep track of timelines in different schools, but am not so sure now, after this marketing gimmic. I understand if this was done after you’ve been popular enough to be mentioned in parents’ circles – then you might be judging schools based on inputs from a substantial size of the parent community – but that (I think) is not the case now. Or atleast give us the numbers (how many registered etc.).
    So even though you don’t try to hide the fact that the ratings are popularity-based, they don’t have enough credibility or research behind them; to me it seems you are treating the subject like the TRP-driven saas-bahu soaps! Maybe a better researched article based on some parameter relevant to the entire education process – or even results or how schools fare in competitions of interest, would be more enriching. Of course then you risk being used by schools for marketing. Just sharing my thoughts on the ratings above.

    • 16. Rakesh  |  October 18, 2010 at 6:04 pm

      Hi Sunita –

      Thanks for the feedback. We did mention clearly that the ranking is based on popularity among members. It is based on statistically significant number of parents who have registered for alerts. We thought it will be useful to share the findings.

      The team behind is also parents of young kids, who care about providing the best possible education to their children. There is no corporate behind it.

      Please keep the feedback coming. It is a website and service for you, so please help shape it.


      PS: I love your saas bahu comment.:)

      • 17. sunita  |  October 20, 2010 at 11:48 pm

        Hi Rakesh,
        Good to see that you actually published my comment without making liberal (or any?) use of ‘the editor’s scissors’ for moderation – I did not think you would. What’s interesting is that you still try to give credibility to your ratings by mentioning that it is parents like me behind the rating and not a Corporate. Well, I completely understand and agree with this – I love your alerts service too. What I don’t agree with (and what you seem to have completely missed in my comment) is that rating schools in Bangalore based on their being searched for, by prospective admission-seekers is just meaningless.
        Please don’t get me wrong – but the basis of the rating could be made more credible by including params like teaching/infrastructure/facilitues/acad results/representation in sports, natl. competitive events/etc. – these could make the ratings closer to reality – and not just popularity based. Otherwise, you can call your ratings ’10 most poular schools in B’lore’ and not “Top 10”! As you see anxious parents are already falling prey to this word and asking for the rating of particular schools..
        As I mentioned before, I understand if really established magazines or widely read newspapers rate based on popularity – but this comes slightly in infancy for 3pundits – don’t you think? Other than this rating – thanks for seeing the opportunity of having better oranized info on the entire education/admission process and helping parents like me!

      • 18. Rakesh  |  October 21, 2010 at 2:59 pm

        Hi Sunita,

        Thanks for the kind words for I have renamed the blog post to “Top 10 Popular Schools in Bangalore”. I hope this addresses your concern.

        We are thinking of ways to provide better ranking of schools. Please do let me know if you have any other ideas. You can always write to us at “feedback at 3pundits dot com”.

    • 20. Rakesh  |  October 21, 2010 at 3:01 pm

      Hi Kavita –

      Please note that our ranking of schools is based on popularity among members. You should do further research on schools that you are considering.


  • 21. Shilpee  |  October 22, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    My daughter is 2.6 yrs now.Since the forms are out now in most of the schools,please help me in finding the few best schools in bangalore east.


    • 22. Ravishankar  |  October 22, 2010 at 10:42 pm

      DPS Bangalore East is really a very good school in terms of infrastructure and also the facilities being provided. There are a lot of good schools but can you let us know if you are looking for ICSE/CBSE,location in East bangalore around which you are looking for schools and is it ok if schools are little expesnive(likeVIBGYOR high …)

  • 23. Murthy  |  October 23, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I fully agree with Sunitha’s comments. I was quite surprised when I saw the “TOP 10 schools” list for Bangalore.

    I had spent considerable time looking for good schools in North Bangalore. In the list you had published I did not see schools from Noth Bangalore – Notably – Malya Aditi, Vidya Niketan, Vidya Shilp etc.

    I very much appreciate the alert service being provided by you.

    • 24. Rakesh  |  October 23, 2010 at 8:11 pm

      Hi Murthy,

      It is good to hear that you like our alert service. As we continue to build a strong community, we hope to do a much better job of identifying good schools in Bangalore.

      Please keep the feedback coming.


  • 25. Bud Chapman  |  November 9, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    The concern I have over this is is that it will only ever list local schools in the Top 10, and the truly “International Schools” because of their much lower constituency are unlikely to get the “hits” required. It does seem a spurious way to judge schools. There is also the thought that the heading for this “survey” should list itself as Top 10 Schools on selected by mouse and the internet.

  • 26. prasidha  |  November 26, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    My daughter is 6 years and I am looking for a good school in south bangalore, can u just give me the names of the top schools. we prefer CBSC and ICSE syllabus.

  • 27. megha sridhar  |  January 6, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    wat abt NPS rajajinagar??

    • 28. Rakesh  |  January 6, 2011 at 1:06 pm

      Hi Megha – there is no doubt NPS schools are one of the good schools in Bangalore. One feels lucky to get their kids into NPS. The above listing was based on admission alerts program on So, it is a list of some of the good schools in Bangalore, but it does not include all of them.

  • 29. Schools in Bangalore  |  January 31, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    There are many good schools in Bangalore and new ones emerging everyday, so it is impossible for everyone to know which one are good. But i find correct information about schools in Bangalore which gives contact information, map-based location of the school and much more

  • 30. Jibi  |  February 14, 2011 at 10:47 am

    This rating is nonsense. Don’t try to misguide parents by such kind of blind rating. I do not want to call this by the word ” RATING”. It is so immature. Do some research and then rate the schools. Conduct survey among parents and get the feedback etc. You can’t lvie in virtual reality of internet and rate the schools.


    • 31. Rakesh  |  February 14, 2011 at 11:36 am

      Hi Jibi –

      Your point is very well taken. This post is purely based on popularity among members. We do not claim that it is based on any type of rating.


  • 32. Caroline  |  June 27, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    What about Sacred Heart Girl’s High School, Bangalore..??…Its one of the Best ICSE schools…

  • 33. kiran  |  July 20, 2011 at 2:02 pm
