So let’s conclude! We know you want the best for your child ,so it could be very worrisome,trying to select the best school for your ward.

All 3 have a good price tag and Regency public school is definitely for your sporty child  and with their limited campus space, Aham Aathma makes the most of its facilities.

We would suggest you talk to your child and understand their needs. Don’t just focus on one feature of any school,but look at the all round development the school could provide to your kiddo.

So, What’s Next?

We suggest asking yourselves, What do you want for your kid? 

Make a list – of the “must-haves” and the “nice-to-haves”. Also, don’t be shy – talk to everyone! Friends, and neighbors, may have some thoughts. Check online too, but remember, reviews are like opinions, everyone’s got one!

Oh, school visits! Take a tour, meet the teachers, ask questions, and see if it clicks.

Open houses are helpful too – you’ll learn about what they teach and meet other parents. And don’t forget the money talk- school fees are just the tip of the iceberg. There are uniforms, field trips, and the occasional surprise costs.

Stay on top of the applications, it may be followed by an interview. When it comes to interviews, just being yourself is the key, even for the kid. 

But really, you can’t go wrong with any of these schools as they are the best in Bangalore. Let us know which one you wind up enrolling your kid into!
