Modern High School is indeed good for education. But it's not the teachers that are good, it's the students. I being a pass out from there ....really got bullied for my good grades. I had suicidal thoughts, the whole time in the school. When my parents took me to a psychiatrist in my college second year(RIMS RANCH I, am a Medical student).. i was diagnosed with PTHD. It was truly a traumatic experience for me. And the teachers bullied me along with the girls......i have nothing more to say except that if u r a parent looking to give ur child admission in MHS, then please DON''s going to destroy her life....better give him/her in DPS(for science) or heritage (for humanities.... psychology is best taught there)

A school which other than education also gives important to discipline which is the key factor to success in life. The girls coming from MHS have a unique charisma.. They stand out in crowd.

If I could, I would give MHS a billion stars because that is what the school has shaped its students into. Modern High was not just my school, it was my home, a place where I truly found people and teachers as my family. Will forever be grateful for gifting me such wonderful 12 years

Let me make this clear it is the worst school in India, there is bullying and too much of pressure when I was studying there, I had depression and sucidal thoughts due to pressure and bullying, education is very bad teachers don't explain anything, scolds for the wrong reasons, disgusting students, disgusting mindset of the principal overall worst school to exist
