School busses and cars of students create a lot of traffic on the main road. (triple parking on both the sides of the road). And the worst part is that the school doesn't care about this at all. No organization and system being followed absolutely. Poor management.

BSS, Mahim or Scottish - the historical Iconic school (Co-Ed) is a pride of Mumbai & the country at large. The prestigious Convent school (ICSE) with a glorious history over 175 years, focuses primarily on Education & also on extra curriculum activities, with special emphasis to sports. Sprawling play ground, garden, nostalgic Gothic style building blocks, labs, spacious library, halls, etc. Decent ambience, dedicated faculty & apt management.

Excellent School, well experienced teachers who are smart, well groomed, kind and inculcate discipline in kids. The best combination of academics and extra circular activities is seen in the school. Extremely organised and works really well for working parents as most of the studies are done in school with little revision to be done at home. Definitely recommend the school!

One of the bestest schools in India. This school has tutored thousands of great people including many celebrities alongside people from very normal walks of life. Definitely has a rich tradition of educational legacy which truly makes it an iconic place in Bombay.
