Education plays a vital role in making you the person you are today. Every parent wants their children to get enrolled in a good educational institution which will help them succeed in life. The school that parents choose for their children education paves the way for their grooming.
Lucknow, the city of Nawabs, has been a centre of academic excellence since the times of the British rule. The city is home to reputed academic institutions, whether it is in the sphere of imparting primary or secondary school education, higher education, professional education or scientific research.
When we talk of primary or secondary school education, Lucknow offers the flexibility of getting your kids enrolled in a day-boarding school, a residential school or a school with normal study hours. Some people would want to send your kids to All-Boys’ or All-Girls’ school while some people would prefer co-education schools. When most government run schools stick to Hindi as a medium of instruction, the missionary run or private schools follow English as a medium of instruction. To each his own, Lucknow schools cater to all.
Some of the well-known schools in Lucknow include La Martiniere College, Loreto Convent, St. Francis’ College, Cathedral school, Christ Church College and Colvin Taluqdars’ College. Lucknow’s first day-boarding school since 1980s happens to be the Lucknow Public Collegiate. There are other good schools such as Mahanagar Boys, St. Fidelis, Carmel Convent, Army Public School, Kendriya Vidyalayas and St. Mary’s School. We can’t forget the chain schools such as City Montessori School, Lucknow Public School, and Delhi Public School. The new breed of international schools such as the Study Hall, Scholars’ Home, Millennium school, Amity International School, GD Goenka, and the VIBGYOR High seem to be picking up quite well too.
The alumni from the Lucknow’s educational institutions who have made it big in their respective field of work include television host Roshan Abbas, celebrated journalist Vinod Mehta, and Rajendra K. Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC from La Martiniere Boys’ College, entrepreneur Shehnaz Hussain from La Martiniere Girls’ College, Journalist Seema Mustafa from Loreto Convent among others.
