    1. This is because of teacher like you who work every day to make APS; a great place to study.

      Thank you for your service to the APS and Nation. Jai Hind!


  2. I have studied in Army Public School Bangalore. (Army High School as it was known before). One of the best things that happened to me and to all the BRATs that study/studied there. And with the current principal, it won’t be long before APS Bangalore climbs a few notches up in this listing.

    Just for trivia .. Anuska Sharma also studied in APS Bangalore and so did Dino Morea.

    1. Dear Sudeep,

      We understand your concern very well. In fact, APS Mhow was at 11th in our list due to its heritage status. APS Mhow was a British hospital and building known as BMH-1 considered to be the oldest APS buliding in India.
      Also, we at udChalo doesn’t support smoking publically 😛



  5. I went to APS DHAULAKUAN AND LAPS. Proud see both of them in this list. And priyanka and anushka are not tapsites. But Lt. Anuj Nayyar, Chetan Bhagat, Neha Dhupiya, Ranvijay, Aman Verma and many more have evolved out of thus great institution. Also this school has a long history. Wish that being shared sometime.


  6. Leader initiator innovator achiever etc…all these words r nt required when u say u r an
    Army School allumini
    Born n brought up in army schools, spent 2 yrs in aps pune, 3 in bhopal n 7 yrs in aps delhi cantt doing every other stuff by deffault with all those panga in n out of school


  7. Surprised that APS Noida hasn’t made it to the list given its ex principal and its popularity and the girls hostel. I’ve been to two of the 10 on the list and I clearly didn’t expect them to make it when APSN didn’t.
    Is “popularity” a product of how cool the school seems to others? Or is their some logical backing in terms of the systems there? (Am not doubting all schools on the list, just curious to some aspects)


  8. I think APS Jorhat is better than APS Narangi as it reached the national level quiz competition two consecutive years and came 4th and 3rd respectively among 135 army schools. Thus it must be included in this list.

    1. Hi Arhanaa,

      Thank you for writing to us. We have not ranked Army Public Schools instead we just mentioned the famous ones. Ranking can only be done by authorized organisations & we believe that APS Jorhat will make among top 10 in that.

      @udchalo social team


  9. Very happy to be a part of aps narangi from class 3 to 6 .also very proud that I was the house captain , prefect and monitor in that school


  10. Proud to be in aps Bangalore….one of the best platform for us to discover our selves and know our hidden talents…it is my luck that being a civilian I got the opportunity to study in an army school ..which is all because of our faithful principal…


  11. There are 133+ army public school’s in India. May be some more are worth mentioning. It’s located all over the country and I am sure that you can find a school under AWES in some corners that is a great place but lacks the usual limelight.


  12. Aps dk is the best as i have studied there , it’s awsm school with awsm principal and teachers, my days in aps were one of my best day’s.
