To Study Or Not in English Medium CBSE Schools in Kolkata

by BHS Mukundapur Team Best CBSE School in Kolkata

The number of English medium CBSE schools in Kolkata is not small. Parents admit their children with lots of hope. Do all of them live up to their expectations? How can parents select their dream schools? Which criteria should they consider?




The foremost important thing is the reputation of the school. Kolkata has no dearth of legendary schools. Some are centuries old. Such schools which have stood the tests of time don’t take chances with their reputation. They do their best to exceed the expectations of parents and students.


Since a majority of these schools had been started by missionaries, they impart education in English. Students of these schools stand apart from the rest in many ways. Take a look at the following points:


       Job aspirants who can speak in English stand a chance of grabbing the job. While it doesn’t mean that those who cannot speak in English cannot secure jobs, employers prefer candidates who can hold unambiguous conversations in English.

       English is one of the most important languages in India. It is very much in use to perform official works. English-medium schools naturally equip students with this weapon.

       We measure the proficiency of a person in a particular language by measuring their skills to write and speak. The students of English-medium schools learn to speak in English as they’re made to converse only in English. Schools recruit the best teachers to teach English grammar, assign writing tasks, encourage students to participate in competitions of comprehension and/or creative writing, recognise best performers, and generate interest among students for the language.


Fee Structure


The fee structure of English-medium schools varies. Though, English-medium schools are more expensive than vernacular medium schools, not all English-medium schools are out of reach of the middle-class.


There are some schools in Kolkata which offer value-based education. The schools had been established during the years when national movements for the freedom of India were at their peak. These schools are still run by benevolent educational societies.


School fees of these schools are kept within the reach of the ‘aam aadmi’. The schools also admit meritorious students from financially weaker sections of the society.


The Board of Education


CBSE, ICSE and/or State Boards of Education manage and control educational affairs of schools in India. Eminent educationists are associated with these boards. Educationists frame school textbooks. Educational boards are in charge of conducting the school leaving examinations. Successful students hold universally accepted degrees from these educational boards.


CBSE affiliated schools have multiple benefits over the rest of others. Since the syllabus of entrance level tests to some prestigious undergraduate colleges like IITs is similar to that followed at higher secondary classes of schools affiliated to CBSE, students stand better chances of cracking the former, and get admissions to dream institutions.


Closing Thoughts


If parents properly research and select the right school, they can help their children to achieve their dreams. A good English-medium school in Kolkata can just be the one they need. There is no shortcut to good research.
