Schools are mushrooming on Noida Expressway. Since Expressway provides an easy connectivity to southern part of Delhi, it is finding favor of parents from the capital as well. Infact, as of now, almost 40% students in these schools have origins from Delhi. With an expected population of another 1 to 1.5 lakhs to move to the region by next 3-4 years, the competition for the best is going to be even more intense.
Almost all schools on Noida Expressway are categorized as International, World or Global schools thereby implying a heavy on pocket fee structure. Most of these schools on Expressway are reportedly following international methodology for teaching and overall development of children.
While most of the schools are in growing phase (both infrastructure and experience wise), we tried to come up with a general perception of the schools based on parent’s reviews, faculty, results and existing infrastructure.
The references (on the basis of which the below feedback has been arrived to) are shared at the bottom of the article.

Update: Academic rankings of schools have been updated based on 10th and 12th class CBSE 2015 results of Class X and XII. Please note there are few schools that are yet to participate in board examinations and hence may not find themselves among the high rankers.
Many of the above schools are still in very initial stage of establishment but are expected to do much better with time on Infra, Academics and Extra co-curricular activities.
Hope the above comparison would help you to ascertain the best / most suited school on Noida expressway for your child.
