Its the BEST SCHOOL I have ever come across.
My son studied from LKG and now he is in XII science stream. It is indeed the best school in Bangalore for all round development of a child. He will be completing 12th std this year. I would like to thank all the teachers, principal and staff for their support.
I would like to share the experience about this school and would like parents to take think before taking admission
This is nothing personal about the school.
Infact i was very keen about taking admission for my son in this school which was once a very reputed one.
I was trying for LKG for my son in this son but few incidents have really shocked me and then i have decided to not to take admission even if i get it .
Last year my husband went to the school to check the admission process ,he was waiting near the school when he saw few bishop cotton students going to the PAN SHOP nearby to purchase somethings,He thought may be few students have gone there to take some pan parag or stuff like that.. but when he enquired he got the shock of his life the students were purchasing GHAANJA(drugs )from shop.He was shocked and disapponted and he came back without taking admission forms & he narrated the whole incident to me.
Since for me the school was totally dream school I didnt want to believe him but he inssited and we decided not to go for admission in the school.
After this incident,nearly one month after this i met one of my old friends whose cousin's son was studying in Vth class in the same school,she told me that her cousin had gone through horrible phase they found CONDOMS in the school bagof her son,it was such shocking and unbelivable thing ,finally they took their son out of the school .
She told me that we have taken good decision of dropping the school.
Again i am repeating it is just my personal experiences and views , which i would I wanted to share with other parrants who are equally worried for their kids future as i much as I do.
