Correspondent of the school and senior paediatrician K. Krishna Prasad said that students had the ability to pursue a career of their choice and added that they should not be pushed into doing a course not to their liking. He recounted many examples of students from this school pursuing different passions and becoming successful. 

Dean, PG Studies, P.B Siddhartha College of Arts and Sciences, Rajesh. C, Jampala, said that students who had completed graduation were in great demand as the companies wanted to recruit fresh graduates and train them.
