If you call this environment as good, hold your breath. Sophie has a 5-acre campus near Yelahanka which is the Akshara Primary school. It is built as a model school for Montessori with ample space for children to explore and learn in a more practical way amidst nature. There are some rumors that whole of Akshara has shifted to Yelahanka. Thats not true, its just the primary school. The pre-primary classes continue to be held at Ulsoor.

We are writing this article to promote Akshara because our daughter studied at this school for 4 years and we are extremely happy about what she has learnt there and the person she is today. We would like to share this experience with others in the hope that they find it helpful and benefit from it.
