There is no quality in this school except for a few teachers who are really interested in the kid's education. The majority of students are here misbehaved and have no guidance from parents and they come to school to bother few good students still remaining there. I will recommend you to send your precious child to this school. The school administration is not interested in giving education and they just want to follow the rules from their school guide and there is no fairness in their decisions at all. We as a family suffered a lot by sending my children to this school. STRONGLY recommend no to send your children to this school.
