In 1978, this school was affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi.  

In 1976 another branch of the PSBB School, affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, was started in a residential area of K.K.Nagar with 5-acre (20,000 m2) surroundings. The K.K. Nagar Branch had four sections of every class from Pre-KG to Std. X. Today it has 5000 students with ten sections in each of these classes. Standards XI and XII have seven sections each. Mrs Chandra Srinivasan, a 40-year veteran of the school, is the Advisor for Academics for PSBB. PSBB was compelled to adopt the CBSE educational system in the 1970s and 1980s to satisfy the growing demands of the residents of the city.

PSBB has been visited by (former) President of India A.P.J.Abdul Kalam.

In the year 2010, Mrs Y.G. Parthasarathy, Dean of the PSBB Schools has received the prestigious PadmaSri from the Government of India in Education and Literature.

3.  Baldwin Boys High School Bangalore


About/Review: Baldwin Boys’ High School (informally BBHS) founded in 1880, is one of the oldest schools in Bangalore, India. The Baldwin Schools are named after their benefactor, a philanthropist, John Baldwin of Berea, Ohio, U.S.A., who had a vision, which saw him start six educational institutions, the last of which were the Baldwin Schools.

The name “Baldwin” descends from a royal lineage, and is of German origin. It means “Bold Winner”.

One sees a glorious panorama of personalities in the annals of Baldwins, guided by a strong sense of purpose, unity, loyalty, grit and determination.

The school has an enrollment of about 6,000 students.

Affiliation – It offers classes up to the 10th standard (grade) under the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) syllabus.

Academics: Here, General Science is bifurcated into Physics, Chemistry and Biology, also Humanities is divided into History and Geography, with question papers of 100 marks in each of the disciplines. The study of English is taken very seriously, and a good grounding in this language is aimed at. Regional languages are also a part of the scheme, as is also Mathematics, which plays a vital part in today’s world.

This scheme has a uniqueness about it, in the sense that it makes provision for a SIXTH SUBJECT – either Commercial Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Physical Education, Music, Accounts, etc. This prepares the children for College, and gives them a head-start over others, as the State Level Scheme does not provide for a sixth subject.

Baldwin Boys’ School offers the following disciplines as a Sixth Subject:

1.Commercial Studies


3.Physical Education

4.Computer Science



The school provides hostel facilities for a limited number of students. The junior and the senior dorm are housed in different buildings. With the increasing number of international students and students from the northeast of the country, the facilities have been upgraded.

  • About/Review: Pre-primary
    Alphabets and numbers are taught using phonetics and songs in a competitive environment, using interactive multimedia techniques. Children are taken on outings, which help them to understand concepts and to express themselves better.
  • Primary
    Teaching is tailored to the needs of the students by involving them in the learning process to maintain their interest. Some of these methods are as follows
  • Dramatisation
    Students are dressed up to enact various roles as per the demand of the lesson or chapter. The class that performs well is permitted to enact on stage while the other sections learn by watching them.
  • Role Play
    Students dress up to depict various characters according to the subject matter. For example, a student journalist interviews his colleagues dressed up as Maharashtrian farmers to explore their way of life and food habits.
  • Experimentation
    Experience is the best form of learning. A very practical approach is undertaken by conducting simple experiments which go a long way in imprinting never-to-be-forgotten concepts on young minds.
  • Projects
    Children are involved in the learning processs in a group or individual basis. They bring in various materials as needed and assemble them in class under the teacher’s guidance, with the aim to help them understand a concept.
  • Yoga
    Children begin their day with 10-15 minutes of yoga. Laughter therapy has also been used with positive results.
  • Home activity
    These are simple independent activities for children, which can be accomplished without any intervention by parents.

The results are encouraging, with children taking greater interest in their studies and therefore lower absenteeism. The children are more confident and their hidden talents are revealed. The burden of homework and exams is reduced to a large extent.

Students of TISB typically take the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations at the end of the 10th grade, followed by a two-year International Baccalaureate diploma.

The International School Bangalore (TISB) is regarded as one of Bangalore’s top schools. The students largely come from affluent backgrounds, or non resident Indian families who wish to have their children schooled in India, because the fees are around US$16,000 a year (in addition to several ‘extra costs’ students are made to pay after joining the school) and there are no scholarships or financial aid available.

However, scholarships are planned to be available for the IB Diploma Program from the year starting August 2008 onwards. It is one of 37 in India that offers the International Baccalaureate Program in its Diploma form similar to Dhirubai Ambani school in Mumbai.

Most students who come to TISB are attracted by the plush lawns, the facilities, and the prospect of going to a top university after completing the IB Diploma Program


TISB has a broad curriculum for its elementary school students that is designed to acquaint them with both eastern and western culture and methods of study. The students have a choice of studying Hindi or western languages such as French, Spanish, Mandarin or German. English is a compulsory subject in this school. The school also has an EFL department.

The school has been planning to expand its campus to include a 9-hole golf course since since the school’s inception in 2001. The school has also been proposing a tie up with Newcastle University for undergraduate studies for the last few years as well. Also, the school’s website shows horse riding and other facilities that are not available at the school but have been put up to falsely promote the school.

Admissions: The International School, Bangalore is online ( and communication by email is acceptable and easy. The school runs from August to June and admissions are normally completed between January and June for most classes.

There are entrance tests and interviews for entry into the middle and senior schools. Students should be of good academic ability and of good character. The school may ask for references, since living together at The International School is really as important as following its academic programmes.

Criticism: However, negative criticism exists of the school as it censors open talk about many unfavourable aspects and monitors the ongoings and online communication regarding the image and opinions of the school. Furthermore, the school is notorious for expelling students for minor reasons. Teachers at the school also feel confined by the strict regulations imposed on them. These include not being allowed to enter fellow staff members’ rooms and unnecessary bureaucracy and politics.
