Padma Seshadree Bala Bhavan (PSBB) is ranked as one of the best in the country with about 7,000 students. Three-and-a-half decades since the school was founded, PSBB school has been recognised as a centre of academic excellence.
It has two branches.The school at Nungambakkam is known as the Main School, with an annexe at Thirumalai Road, which has more than 2,500 students.The branch school at K K Nagar is housed in a sprawling 5-acre campus and boasts of 4,500 students on its rolls. PSBB is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi.
Nearly 40% of the students gain entry into the IITs (Indian Institutes of Technologies) and another 20% into other premier institutes besides many who are pursuing higher education or occupying influential positions abroad.
The focus is more on the learning process than on information or inert content. Continuous assessment, through year long cycle tests, is yet another unique feature of the Junior Curriculum.


Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan Senior Secondary School (PSBB) was founded in 1958 by a group of enterprising house wives. The school was started in a thatched shed, with 13 students and a staff of three. The school was christened Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan in honor of the deceased wife of a lawyer who helped in the cause.In 1959, within a year of its beginning, it moved to its present location in Lake Area, Nungambakkam. The residents of Nungambakkam realised the potential of the school and the student enrolment shot up. The first batch of students to take the Class X Board exams were in 1967-68.

I called up the school for admission details and they were reluctant to provide details over the phone. they want the parents to travel personlly to the school and read the notice boad outside the gate. It was written that recommendations would disqualify your application how true is that?

I have applied in PSBB Millenium as well for Pre KG 2009 - 10. They charge you 40K admission fee and 10,600 per term ( 3 terms = 31, 800)

They have started a new school with international standards. Admission fee is 40K and 10600 per term for pre KG. Classes are from 9 to 12 and they have bus survice to different part of the city

most of what is mentioned is about millennium and not bala bhavan psbb, in recent times though many am sure would disagree psbb has gone down in lot of aspects, the admission procedure is by itself so cumbesome and puts the parents into lot of hardships, they distribute around 10k forms while they have only 400 seats to offer, i dont see any other motive than to make money by doing this, this eventually also leads to lot of rejections. i firmly believe that premiere institutions like this should not do such things for making money and should uphold some basic ethics. For rejected applications there is no reason given, it is appalling a school with such repute gets its 80% or even more seats filled with 2 criterias being met by parents. 1. if any of the siblings are studying or have studied and 2. to have recommendation from cine / some cultural field celebrities. it is time for people to take cognizance of these things and also the school authorities and change.
