PPS Students come off with flying colors in CBSE exams

The noble idea took shape and sprouted in the minds of a few supremely inspiring visionaries, way back in 2008. Sensing the lacunae, these zealous stalwarts identifed the academic , emotional and social needs of the children of police personnel, who painstakingly toil round the clock to sustain law and order in the state.

A toddler in 2008, Police Public School, Koramangala, a nonprofit welfare initiative, brimming with enthusiasm, with 365 students and 18 staff, the initial steps were firm and stable to propel ahead for a confident, earmarked journey- quality education with CBSE curriculum at a reasonable and affordable cost.

A bird's view of 2019-2020 results:

  • Distinction -15 students
  • First class-40 students
  • Second class-29 students

This being the first batch who joined the institution way back in 2008 is another notable fact. A special mention is to be placed on record-every year, more than 80% of the children of police personnel bask in the distinction gallery.

Year after year, the faculty is providing relentless support and guidance to all the children who have reciprocated magnanimously.
