Our list of top schools in Noida

Dear Parents, after an extensive research of schools in Noida, we list down some of the best schools in Noida at the moment. As you would find below, the list is arrived to on the combined basis of key parameters like Academics, Individual attention to child, Infrastructure, Parents-Teacher interaction and general safety standards for the child. Equal weightage has been given to all these parameters.  Parents looking for a particular characteristic in school can sort this list by the same. Parent reviews, interaction with some of the schools, online portals and board results are some of the key inputs to this list.

    This list does not have some schools eg: Manav Rachna Sec-50, Billabong High School Sector 34.
    Also, could you please explain how is the marking done for example what is the criteria to award 82 and not 83 or 85 or 90 for that matter. as 80-90 is very close as far as awarding these points are concerned.

      Yes, some schools like the ones you mentioned or new schools (<4 years old) or some missionary schools are excluded due to lack of sufficient information and/or no response from school admin on queries. We have added couple of schools today and shall continue to modify the list as we happen to incorporate more schools here.
      Regarding points system, the biggest factor leading to the difference quoted is average score from parents survey.
      Points criteria is as below:
      Academics: 55 points based on CBSE results (average scores of students appeared in 2016 board) if applicable or else 20 points for minimum qualification mandate + 15 points for NET/post graduate mandate + 20 points for social insights data from online sources + average score given by parents out of 45. It is this 20 + 45 from social insights data and parent review that is variable for schools.
      Individual attention to child: 50 points to teacher student ratio. Rest 50 points based on average of responses from parents.
      Infrastructure: Sports amenities (4 points each for swimming pool, cricket, soccer, lawn tennis, table tennis, gym, racing, basketball, hockey, boxing, volleyball, skating) and 2 points for unique outdoor sport like horse riding or shooting/archery, 20 and 10 points for IT and Lab Infrastructure respectively and remaining 20 from average parent score
      Parents involvement: 50 points for PTM frequency and 50 points from average score from Parents survey
      Safety: 20 points given for restricted entry and exit, 10 points deducted if small class children on upper floors, 20 points deducted for porous nature of plot. Rest points given based on Average score from Parents survey.
      There is always some scope for improvement from point system’s perspective. But, we have given equal consideration to key parameters identified by parents during our last years survey.

    Hi,

    We are staying in Sec-137 and seeking nursery admission(2017-18) for our daughter. We are confused between getting her admitted to JBM global for first years and then shift her to some established schools in central Noida OR getting her directly admitted to Amity International School from Nursery itself.
    We have budget limit of 25-30K per quarter. Please suggest?

    Thanks

      So after a school survey and talking to couple of parents, here is our review:
      1) Very good infra. Good sports facilities and well planned interiors with big halls and clubs.
      2) Young teachers mostly lacking experience. So academics shall be a question as it stands today.
      3) Decent setup for Child safety.
      4) Parent/teachers interactions are reasonably frequent.
      5) Parents generally satisfied but there are some ifs and buts like child lacking on a thing or two academically and on spoken skills.

      Given the budget constraint, you have a reasonable schools identified. Its difficult to get admission in Amity Intl at later point. Hence, we would suggest to go for Amity Intl at this stage itself.

    Hi,

    I am seeking admission for my 3.5 year old son. We only applied for Amity last year but no success. Since we are staying in Sector 137, distance from Amity could be an issue.

    This year we had applied for DPS Noida, Sector 34 and Sriram Millennium. Again no luck with DPS.

    Waiting for Sriram result but I am worried about the fee which is more than most of the schools in region. I wanted to check with you why Sriram has such high fee and if it is really worth it?

    I checked the ratings above and it has top scores for child attention & parents involvement. Above average for academics. Still does it commands that high fee?

    My other concern is that it is one the only two ICSE board (along with Pathways) among 29 schools. I am not able to understand this wide divide between CBSE & ICSE board. How does it impact academic growth and future.

    Thanks in advance.

      ICSE is considered more exhaustive. You will see a child studying in ICSE in a particular class being taught more than what a child in same class in CBSE would be. There is also significant stress laid on research. Some kids that cope up with the brisk pace excel well. Others find it difficult. Shriram has one of the best faculty for senior classes in Noida expressway currently along with SBS. And thats why it commands that fees. We have some doubts about PAthways though. It is spending more on other activities.

        I agree on sports infrastructure. Board is subjective. I did some research on fee front and concluded that there could be 1-2K per month difference but nothing significant. End of the day it is the school which appeals to you more and may be the one close to your house.

        We chose Sriram because everyone’s review was:

        – Good academics especially 5th onward.
        – Kids are “down to earth”.
        – Inculcate Indian value system.

        and for us it was closest. Yes the fee is high but after little research it looked same as others. In below data Sriram & Shiv Nadar are actual. Step By Step I found the structure online so may not be accurate. Over all I think not a huge difference. I also wanted to analyse Lotus Valley but could not find fee structure anywhere and forgot to collect it from school.

            Shiv Nadar registrations open on 13th but I did hear good about them. Different/Modern /alternative teaching approach and they do not burden the kid (parents) with loads of homework etc. This may equate to not much academics for some parents but that is perspective!

            Sriram however scores on kids to teacher ratio also besides the points I mentioned earlier. They mentioned that they don’t have more than 30 students in a class. 25 is average. We are also on the same boat as you.

            Both schools have good reviews and have a good lineage if we look at their previous ventures in Gurgaon. You will find Shiv Nadar staff more approachable than Shriram Millenium. That along with marginal fees and CBSE board may be in favor of Shiv Nadar. However, as of today, senior staff of Shriram is much more experienced and efficient in comparison to Shriram. We expect Shriram to be better on academics in comparison to Shiv Nadar for times to come.

    My son is currently in Khaitan Public school, Sahibabad.
    He’s quite good in academics & other co curricular activities. Can you suggest a school wherein the sports facilities are very good alongwith studies.

Now we have done registration in Indraspatha Global School, Sector 98. Can any one provide some feedback about this school? Most of the schools in noida have closed admission for next session for nursery. I think step by step school registration is still not open. Can you please advise what are the other school which are still open for us to apply for. Also parents staying in sector 137 , please share your feedback as well

    I must admit that I am impressed with the in depth reviews here. & I really appreciate everyone’s efforts. I am moving from Bengaluru to Noida in April 2017. Am considering good schools for my daughter & son going to Class 4 & 3 respectively. Planning to stay on expressway. My consideration would be a school with good academics as well as overall personality development. Fees though not a big constraint, am wary of getting my kids into 5 star culture. Can you recommend some good schools. I was thinking between SBS, Amity International, DPS Noida, Mayoor, Somerville Sector 22.

        How do you feel about TSMS, Noida (The Shriram Millenium School). Means how is it doing now in terms of academics & extra curricular. You think it will emerge as strongly as Shriram School, Gurgaon. I read that Noida TSMS is a joint venture between Educomp & Shriram group. So I guess its the same difference as being DPS managed & franchisee. Will it come out to be one of the best ones in terms of academics also in years to come in Noida. My kids will be going to Class 3,4. So for now its OK. But is it like I may have to shift them to more academically oriented schools around their 8th Class. Or may be TSMS improves by then. Your insights on this will help me decide.

      Step by step is undoubtedly better for its more close to traditional schooling at the same time offers plenty of co-curricular and extra co-curricular facilities.
      Academically, the competition is stiff between SBS and LV.
      Since demand for LV is high, they generally start their sessions from April.

      Hi Ashish, we are happy that you brought about a very significant topic of schools that have nominal fees. JPS (Jagran Public school) is a fairly decent traditional school. It had 72% average score in CBSE XII exams this year. Extra-curricular wise as well, they have reasonable options. It follows a traditional way of teaching and the student-teacher ratio is relatively higher.

      If you are moving to expressway region, Shiv Nadar, Mayoor, Lotus valley could be tried. If you are moving to central Noida, there are plenty of options within the range. Fthr Agnel, VBS, Amity International and most of the others listed in the article fall in this fees range (off course, first year you will have to pay admission fees in addition).

    Hi,
    Really thanks for your review.

    I have visited both the schools.
    The only -ve point with Millenium school (Sec 119) is dat the campus (& playground) is very small as compared to other schools. I doubt how would they accommodate senior classes which is about to start this year in new campus. The positive point is as school is new, it is clean and well maintained with all classes equipped as smart classes, but dont know Hwz the studies/education over there. I stay in Sec 49, both the schools are almost at equidistance from my place.

    Have already taken positive feedbacks for both the schools (Mayoor school and The Millenium School) from the parents. Fees for both the schools is almost same.

    Please do let me know about DPS, Expressway too. The infrastructure was really good, but
    feedback from parents is not dat appreciating.

    So now, I hv 3 schools to choose: Mayoor, Millenium and DPS Sec 132, Expressway. Kindly suggest, as I am very confused.

    Thanks in advance.

      The teachers in Millenium are more focused towards a particular child. If you are looking for long term academics, Mayoor might be better. Yes, DPS Expressway has some decent faculty but it is still not a comparison to some other schools on e-way.

    I am shifting to Noida Sec-134. I am looking for a school for daughter to be in 5th Std. from April-2017. She is currently going to The Khaitan School, sec-40. Can you please suggest me, If I should move her from there to a school on Expressway, but budget on the same lines as of Khaitan. Is JayPee Public school or DPS 132 worth a change. For me Khaitan is a little distant, so wanna know if it is worth taking the travel pain or change is advised.

      Hi, I would strike off Shriram Millenium because of its fees. Of the others mentioned, Fr Agnel has been on top of parents feedback while Somerville-22 has been good on Academics. Wont suggest Somerville International at this stage. Very little extra/co-curricular activities and the focus is more on discipline than on Academics. It needs some time.
