Top Schools in Delhi near Your Locality

The top schools in Delhi are the ones that don’t focus only on their students getting good marks. They also see that every child has an A+ experience throughout school – be it in sports, music, theatre, or fine arts. The experience should be wholesome for your child and school should be a happy place, not a prison.

This ideology of the top schools in Delhi is something we also share. We also believe a school should be more than just a boot camp to ace your boards, just like we believe in providing residences for youngsters that are more than just a place to dump their belongings. By providing facilities like nutritious and hygienic meals for better health and high-speed wifi for all those uninterrupted online classes.

Mother’s International School, Sri Aurobindo Marg Adhchini

Mother’s International School has proudly been one of the best schools in Delhi for decades now. And why not, with their consistently good results in the board exams as well as attention to sports – a 400m athletics track, two basketball courts, three badminton courts, two volleyball courts, an 8-tabled TT room, a gymnasium, cricket nets, and football field. You’re spoilt for choice. To add to that, the campus has an open ground behind it where peacocks and other birds frequently pay a visit. It’s like a walk in nature for your child in the chaos of city life.

Delhi Public School, RK Puram

Although DPS Mathura Road was the first school to be opened in the huge chain of schools, RK Puram has beaten it to become the highest-ranked DPS in the world. The school is especially recommended if you’re planning for higher education abroad since they have a special committee designated for that. Moreover, if your child is being bullied by a teacher or is having difficulty learning in class, he or she can complain to the principal and get that teacher changed. Of course, anonymously. Also, if you’d like your child to have good role models, this school is known to produce economists like Raghuram Rajan and Bollywood stars like Randeep Hooda. 

Sanskriti School, Chanakyapuri

Did you know that this top school in Delhi was the brainchild of the wives of civil servants of India? Yes, Sanskriti school started out as a passion project in 1996 and years later, is one of the best academic centres in the city, known for giving their students a holistic experience. The school focuses a lot on values and giving back to society. No wonder 90% of its students go on to become IAS officers, following their parents’ footsteps.

Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, Lodhi Estate

Although this school follows English as the medium of instruction in its higher classes, it is the only private school in Delhi where classes are taken in Hindi till class VI. This is done to ensure that students stay rooted to the city they belong to. The school also has an elevator facility for wheelchair access. In fact, the whole campus is quite disabled-friendly. All in all, Sardar Patel Vidyalaya is a notable name in the country, just like the freedom fighter after whom it’s named.

Modern School Barakhamba, Road

If you ask any Delhiite about the top 10 schools in Delhi, there’s no way they won’t mention Modern School at Barakhamba Road. It is a co-ed day-cum-boarding school, taking students from the 6th to the 12th standard. The school has a special technology block consisting of the Department of Electronics & Robotics, Department of Fashion and Jewellery Designing, Department of Home Science & Interiors, among others. Some of which may even put the IITs and NIFTs to shame.

The Shri Ram School, Vasant Vihar

Students of The Shri Ram School are not judged on the basis of exams but are instead encouraged to learn through creative projects. These projects cover basic language skills to more complex science and mathematics. Their teaching style is super unique and has had some excellent students who later go on to study in the best colleges of Delhi, like SRCC and LSR (carrying the Shri Ram legacy with them even after they’ve left school).

Apeejay School, Pitampura

Apeejay is quite a successful chain, with schools all over India. They have their own swimming pool and skating rink for all the young athletes. Talk about being self-dependent. On that same note, the school also follows their own published books instead of the regular NCERT ones. So if you ever dreaded the fat RD Sharma books back in school, sending your kids to Apeejay will make sure they don’t.
