The current education system mostly produces bookworms and not thinkers. It is theoretical in nature and bereft of practical knowledge. Besides theoretical knowledge, other abilities required for life like creativity are suppressed. We therefore need a system of instruction that enables a child to face challenges that lie ahead. National Centre For Excellence focuses on overall development, making children ready for life. Dr. K. P. Gopalakrishna, a visionary educationist and the Chairman of the National Public Schools Group, felt the need for a mode of teaching that would not only instill traditional values but also make children competent in a competitive world. Thus, National Centre For Excellence came into existence.

NCFE has a branch in Malleshpalaya where the school offers classes upto 11th standard. Two new branches - one in BTM Layout (behind IIMB) and the other on Sarjapur Road (opposite Springfield Apartments) offers classes from 1st to 5th standard.
As per the school's website - NCFE believes in enabling its students to be ready for life and to be better equipped to deal with the outside world. Here, the emphasis is not on academics alone, but also on the moral, artistic, leadership, physical and emotional aspects of a child’s development. The school maintains a healthy student teacher ratio of 1:15. Dr. Gopalakrishna, Chairman of NPS is associated with the school.

The worst school possible. They do not allow children to use toilets except in the breaks (i.e. twice), as a result, child has to choose between food and going to toilet. The toilets are stinky and horribly dirty. Several children have got urine infection. Teacher quality is compromised. Several other problems. We are desperately looking for another school. Worse is, construction has been going on for the past 7 years and will still take another year or two, resulting in kids developing dust allergy and related problems. Last year, they had no annual day or any other day for primary and secondary classes.
This is NOT a school you should sent your child to unless there is no option left.
My kid studied there last three years from Montessori 1 to Mont 3 and finally I took her away and got her admitted to other descent school.
Few points to mention:
1) Ever increasing monetary demand from school. Asks nearly 1 lakh for 1sy year. Increases the fee around 15% to 20% yearly
2) Not well trained teachers and Management stuff. No not have minimum courtesy to talk properly over phone with kid's parents or visitors.
3) In between academic year, send notes to parents and asks to pay money for certain thing. Like, extra tuition fee (like Rs 3000/ month extra)
4) School promoter and chairman in misusing name of NPS (National Public School) and misusing the name of NPS group of institution KP Gopalkrishnan,
5. They take a tactics of complaining about the kid in mid-way and deliberately fail the kid by not promoting to next class.
This way they can take new admission from new kid's parents to that class as well as get amount from the existing failed kid.
Do not think of getting your kid admitted to this school.
