Best schools in Noida 2018

Before you read the complete list of Best schools in Noida 2018, it is important that parents realize that there is no binary in school education system. A school can not be simply classified as good or bad just because a survey comes up with particular perception of the school. A lot depends upon the kid’s upbringing prior to schooling and a lot depends upon the kid himself/herself. At the same time, before searching for a school, clarity of thoughts is essential. Answers to these questions are a must have: Do you feel the child is smart and confident enough and only needs a right academic direction? Do you feel all that the child needs is to grow in confidence? Do you feel child needs to find a career in sports or other extra co-curricular opportunities? Do you feel you can put the extra hard work by taking your kid to coaching/training in sports/music etc. during non-school hours? or Do you feel the child needs to have a strong like minded company? If you have answers to all these questions, this Survey could help you since we divide a particular School’s rating based on individual parameters and then we come up with overall ratings based on a well researched weightage given to these parameters.

This year, along with SchoolBrainer, we researched around 50 schools in Noida. Ratings for few of these schools are primarily based on lineage, prospective parent’s feedback, planned/current infrastructure and submitted survey form, if applicable.

The DWPS  Noida extension

This year, we have re-adjusted our calculation of overall ratings for the school. We have taken 20% of Academics, 20% of Safety/Security and 20% of Individual attention to child as key parameters for overall ratings. These parameters are given highest weightage based on an online Survey we had run 4 months back. Other than these parameters, 15% of Co-curricular, 10% of Extra-curricular and 5% each of ‘Parents-Teacher Interaction’, ‘Infrastructure’ and ‘Teacher Welfare’ have been considered. More details of each parameter will follow after the list of Best schools in Noida 2018 which is given below:

  • February 19, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    Hi, Wanted to get reviews for Genesis. Is it worth the fee charged

    • March 21, 2019 at 2:03 pm

      Genesis is not worth the fees. It has lot of xtra curricular focus. Also, few good teachers moved out of late.

  • February 8, 2019 at 10:57 pm

    Hi parents, I am looking for a school for my kid which follows international curriculum in Noida. Please advise on options as soon as possible isnce we are moving back from states next month and want to finalise something by then.

    • February 12, 2019 at 12:14 am

      Dear Shilpi,
      For International Curriculum Schools, you may try:
      1. Pathways School, Noida.
      2. Genesis Global School, Noida.
      These schools are affiliated to IB and follow International Curriculum.


  • February 1, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    A new school viz. Prometheus School has come up in sector 131. How is it? Anybody has seen the school?

    • February 4, 2019 at 4:42 pm

      The principal is experienced. Looks more like gyanshree. More competition in offing.

  • January 26, 2019 at 11:07 pm

    How good is ramagya school in Noida?

    • January 27, 2019 at 1:25 pm

      Ramagya school has excellent sports facilitiesand involvement in curricular activities like Debate, Stage performance development is good. Academics has a mixed review from parents I know and have talked to. Even I am confused between Ramagya and Billabong because my kid has deep rooted interest in sports.

    • February 8, 2019 at 10:58 pm

      Very good school. They are also improving in academics by bringing experienced teachers.

  • January 8, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    How is Gyanshree? I am getting Lot of mixed reviews. Attrition is high but lot of satisfied parents as well.

    • January 17, 2019 at 11:30 pm

      Good for sports and mixed development. Academics is just ok. Since last year, approaching senior staff is difficult.

  • January 5, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    Jbm or DPS expressway. Please help me decide. Both academic and sports is a priority for me for my child who is going to join in class 2nd.

    • January 8, 2019 at 1:54 pm

      Teachers are better in DPS Expressway but sports facilities are far better in JBM. Co-curricular activities wise, both are similar.

    I’m getting my son in lotus valley pre-nursery. But of late, read some bad words on other forums. Plz help. How’s step by step? Can we migrate him to step by step nursery next year?

    • December 29, 2018 at 12:14 am

      Is there any age criteria for nursery admissions at sbs?

      • December 29, 2018 at 1:42 am

        Yes, 2.5 years for pre-nursery.

    • December 29, 2018 at 1:42 am

      Hi Nidhi, there are some issues with junior classes but senior classes are all good in LVIS. Step by step is a tough nut to crack. It is advisable and as a matter of fact, it is easier to get admissions there in pre-nursery.

      • December 30, 2018 at 11:03 pm

        Thanks Kunal.
        Is there any other school (preferably non IB) in Noida that’s recommended for primary n junior classes. I’m concerned more as these are the formative years. We’re looking for a school near expressway.

        • December 30, 2018 at 11:30 pm

          Near Noida Expressway,
          1. Shiv Nadar School (CBSE)
          2. Step By Step School (CBSE)
          3. Lotus Valley International School (CBSE)
          4. Delhi Public School Sector- 132 (CBSE)
          5. The Shriram Millennium School (ICSE)
          These are a few good non IB schools near the location preferred by You
          ALL THE BEST!!?

          • January 8, 2019 at 1:54 pm

            Good list. Thanks for the leads.

        • December 31, 2018 at 1:25 am

          Shiv nadar and tsms are also good options.

  • December 22, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    As per my knowledge, all schools with traditionally good background, are yet to fill in. Many because of people movement to newer regions like noida extension. Mayoor advertising this time of the year is bit surprising.

  • December 14, 2018 at 5:19 pm

    How is Shriram millennium when it comes to infrastructure? Does it provide sport facilities?

    • December 22, 2018 at 1:51 pm

      Yes, open space is limited. but they have facilities for all sports even cricket. but its obviously net cricket.

  • November 7, 2018 at 2:44 am

    Please can someone tell me what makes step by step special. I have been trying for admission for my kid for primary year but never managed to get a call.

    • November 10, 2018 at 3:40 am

      Step by step has a very good sports infra and provides excellent exposure to both Co-curricular and extra curricular activities. The results of both IB and CBSE are very good.

  • November 4, 2018 at 12:52 am

    I am confused between TSMS and shiv Nadar on Noida expressway. Please advise which is better and why?

    • November 10, 2018 at 3:41 am

      It finally boils down to the board you are comfortable with. TSMS follows ICSE and shiv Nadar follows CBSE Otherwise both are similar. Infra of shiv Nadar is bit better.

  • October 25, 2018 at 2:59 am

    Please can someone tell what makes step by step so special.

  • October 20, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    Hi, kindly advise about the millennium school. Educomp has pulled out of TSMS so it’s in dire state, isn’t it?

    • October 25, 2018 at 3:00 am

      If you are talking of the millennium school alone, yes, it has faded of late and lot of mixed reviews from parents too.

    • December 30, 2018 at 1:06 am

      The Millennium School, Noida is a very good school if you choose to opt for CBSE Board. Educomp has pulled out of The Shriram Millennium School, and not The Millennium School. TMS still has Educomp as its Pedagogy Partner.
      You can get reviews from anywhere, but one thing I would like to request here is your trust. If you believe in a revolutionising education and not the rote learning system, if you opt for CBSE, then surely The Millennium Schools, Sector 41&119 will meet up your all expectations.

      All The Best!!?

      • December 30, 2018 at 11:37 pm

        That’s true! And TMS (The Millennium School) is a very constructive choice one can make for their children.
        One thing which needs to be added here is that both the schools are affiliated to different boards. While the Shriram Millennium is ICSE, THE MILLENNIUM SCHOOLS are CBSE.

    • December 30, 2018 at 11:42 pm

      Educomp has pulled out of The Shriram Millennium Schools (TSMS), and not from The Millennium Schools (TMS).
      TMS is affiliated to CBSE, while TSMS is affiliated to ICSE
