Top schools in Pune versus Best Schools in Pune

By Madhurie Singh, April 22, 2013

Top schools or the best schools in Pune. What should be the right search words in Google search engine or Yahoo or Bing?

What you search matters a lot to you and to the search engine too.

Let’s start with the parents.

For a parent, the most important thing when looking for the school admission for their children is a school where the child flourishes in academics, extra-curricular activities and the personality is also groomed for tomorrow’s success.

So what should be your search term. Or what words you must type in,  for any search engine to retrieve out the articles for you?

“Best Schools in Pune” or ” Top Schools in Pune” !

Top Schools in Pune when typed in Google will show results of the schools that are rated by public based on hearsay only. If you ask your neighbor who is 50 year old or any auto rickshaw driver the same question, the answer will be same. These people who give answers have also “heard” it that these are the top schools in Pune. How much you can trust them is totally up to you.

Best Schools in Pune when typed in Google will show nearly the same result, mostly junk. Best school really means a list of worthy schools based on curriculum, teaching and results which suits your child’s need.

Ever since I got into blogging it was never SEO of the page or site that mattered to me. Honestly, I did not know about SEO until recently in the real sense. So obviously, I never bothered to even read or spend time on SEO or google page ranking  related articles.     I just have been researching and writing articles, designing my website, fiddling with the Wordpress, PHP, jscript, database, mysql randomly to present to you what you see even now. Yes, the entire website is designed and developed my yours truly. 🙂 With loads of hit and trial, fingers crossed to hair pulled out since 2009.

Google has been very kind to me and my intentions. It always pops up my review articles about schools generously. (When you get something easily, you never learn the hardships others are facing). So when I gave away the website development work to a very smart and able company this month, I am free to think and research.

In the search I found several websites that have come up over the last few years and gaining popularity by copy pasting anything and from anywhere. No authenticated data, no research and no credibility. Poor parents searching Google will never know the real intention behind these sites. And poor Google has no way to know either, as it just goes by words people are searching and content people have written on their websites.

Google has become smarter again, beating these websites that created the articles by copying and forgetting their site, to earn revenue through google ads (ads that you see is the bread and butter of this website too, provided it is clicked).  Google now checks and gives credit to only those sites that regularly update their content.

I have been really lazy to not post a list of schools in Pune. Well, I did not want to post a list just for the heck of it and misguide parents. So I cannot write Best schools or Top schools as each school is best in something but tops from bottom in others. 🙂

But for the benefit of all the parents who may get misguided, I will provide a list of schools for sure again, mind you it is only a list.

This is a list of schools in PuneIndia.

Hi Madhurie, I want to know your views on Vidhya valley SUS.Is it better than GIIS chinchwad?

I am looking for a good school (ample exposure in sports, cultural activities and academics for them to choose their path forward) for son for Nursery. I had short listed below ones but still am confused to decide on ONE: 1. V K Patil (ruled out for this year due to age band, but thinking to secure admission next year) 2. Millenium (didn't get admission in first list - but I will be able to try in March again) 3. Karnataka - KHS (was in waiting list, got selected on 8th Jan list but by then had already chosen New India School (NIS)) 4. New India School (NIS) - Secured admission, but confused as to whether to continue with it or choose KHS of Millennium So again, will it be okay to continue with NIS or get it changed to KHS/ Millennium this year itself. Alternatively, I was going to try for V K Patil next year when the age criteria would be met.

That is a detailed query and needs phone consult. For better admission chances book a phone consult with me by clicking

Hi Madhurie, I am relocating from Hyderabad to Pune in October 1st week. I don't have any Idea about Pune schools and locality. My office would be at Magarpatta. My son born in Sep, 2006 and now studying in std 2. He is a brilliant student at this moment(I believe he is talented, but school says he is simply brilliant). Laura Jana my sister in law owner of PRIMROSE SCHOOL OF LEGACY, Omaha also says my son is really doing excellent at this moment. My son is studying in a less known small school (Samskriti Vidyalaya, CBSE) and I want to put him in a good school at Pune from October 1st week. I am looking for a school where my son could continue with his excellent learning, where the school could help him to groom more. But the constraint is I am not able to pay a big amount for donation to take his admission into a big school.

Dear Madhuri I have recently shifted from Mumbai to Pune (Kharadi). We have taken admission for our daughter in Lexicon Intl school (LKG) since she was not fulfilling the age criteria for Bhishop, St Mary and Helenas. She is October 2010 born. But i have not heard very good reviews about it. In mumbai, she was studying ICSE board with one of the reputed schools. My daughter was enjoying her school life there and is looking forward to go back to school. But since i have heard lot of negative reviews about Lexicon, I am considering changing the school. Preferably ICSE since we might move back to Mumbai again. I am looking at co-head school. My son is currently 1.9 yrs old, so once we make one decision about a school, we are planning to secure his admission in the same school. Can you please help to know - whether Lexicon is a good school, if not, what is the second best / third best alternative. I read your review on St Arnold, which was quite some time back though. Is it a good school. rgds Dolly
