I had been to collect the admission forms for FY 2012. The staff was curteous for us to see the campus.However the Director with whom we had the interview was full of attitude and screaming with I dont care attitude.
The fees also is on the higher side. There is no outdoor sports facility
This is an amazing school! The type of teaching is awesome......
I visited the school today to get some idea about the campus. The building looks new and the environment inside is very clean, well maintained, and new. The person at the reception was very courteous and took us for a tour of the school. She also answered all our questions to our satisfaction.
The school fees are certainly quite high (1.2 L onwards) and I am trying to get feedback from the first batch of students/parents regarding their experiences. The school is very young and I want to get some good background information before thinking of admitting my kids there.
From what we heard today, the classes are quite empty at the moment. The first standard has around 9-10 kids and higher classes have even fewer. Currently, only classes 1-8 are available but they plan to add a new class every year. Also, from 5th standard onwards, the third language can only be French or Kannada. Sanskrit is not an option.
If anyone has an experience to report, please do so as it will help us prospective parents a lot.
I am looking more information from the parents of children already studying at Ekya.. please post more information. I am looking to enroll my child to Ekya JP nagar.

everything is really awesome in here including the tution.
there is a lot of place to play.when you just step inside you experiance a
IT IS JUST AWESOME IN HERE.
My daughter is in Std 1 at the JP Nagar campus (ICSE) of Ekya Schools. There are a few things which I love about this school -
1. Lesser number of students per class, which ensures excellent attention paid to each student.
2. Promoting Teamwork and togetherness in education. There are quite a few activities which involves a group of students to work together. Academics and extra-curricular activities get due focus.
3. Very loving and understanding teachers. All the teachers in std 1, Chaitra ma'am, Ms. Anandhi, everyone takes excellent care of the students.
The fees are a little on the higher side, but ok..
I would recommend Ekya schools to everyone. You can check the admission process at their website ekyaschools.com
My son has been a student of Ekya Schools, JP Nagar, for nearly 2 years now. It has been a wonderful experience not just for him, but also for us. He learns so much everyday, and is always super-excited to go to school. The teachers are very caring and loving, and the curriculum is very well structured. They have ICSE syllabus for JP Nagar and CBSE for ITPL Campus. They even conduct expert talks in the school for every classes.
The Ekya JP Nagar school management has gotten into 'Do not care attitude' . No place to raise your concern or any formal opportunity to meet teachers and discuss progress about your kid. No outdoor sports. Gone are those days when there were 10-15 kids per class. Motto now appears to be fill kids within the limited facilities. Teachers aren't experienced as they should be for a school which claims to be an international school with a fees of 1.25 lacs pa.
Totally agree about the 'Do not care attitude' of the school. The school was full of promise a year ago but has drifted into the typical 'rat race' mode.
Students have TEN subjects from the 6th standard onwards (English, 2nd language, 3rd language, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History/Civics, Geography, Computer Science). The load on the kids is just too high.
Sports activities have disappeared and the focus seems to be on studies only. School bags are very heavy and all public holidays are turned into homework sessions.
Classes are bigger now and it appears that the teachers are not able to really explain the material to the kids. It then ends up being the parents who have to help the kids learn..... which is something parents are NOT qualified to do !!!
6 year old children (1st standard) are being made to stand outside class as punishment.
There is no written instruction anywhere on what sweets a child can bring on birthdays. If a child brings the wrong kind of sweets to school on his/her birthday, the sweets are confiscated by the staff instead of the child being educated on what he/she did wrong.
This kind of regressive behaviour is the main reason our schooling system is so backward.
Ekya school has lost all its charm. The vision that was driven by the former Vice-principal has been buried deep underground.
Contrary to the other reviews above, I found the teachers and staff very polite and helpful. In ITPL campus, where my kids go, everyone starting from the receptionist, to the finance person, the student in-charge, teachers, always greet parents with a smile and are always ready to answer all our queries.
Studies are top notch and good focus on extra curricular activities as well. As a parent I am happy and so are the other parents who wait with me outside the school (since I did not avail of the bus service). So a big thumbs up from me.
Good school. If you look at the school infrastructure, the curriculum, co-curricular activities, everything is very well balanced. Kids are well disciplined. Got my son into Grade 2 last year. Has been quite a satisfactory experience so far. Parents' queries are adequately heard and answered. Thanks Ekya!
Ekya school is awesome. When I wanted to change my school, I got admission in several schools like brigade,dps etc.
My son has been going to Ekya in JP Nagar for the past 2 1/2 years. He loves going to school. This isn't special to just my child - when I have asked other Ekya parents, they all say the same thing - their child loves going to school. I think that in itself should be proof enough that it is a good school.
I have always found the teachers and the headmistress very warm and friendly with the students, and open to suggestions from the parents. Any issues or concerns can be voiced to the teacher or headmistress by making an appointment. They have a lot of interesting activities planned for the children, and one gets the feeling that they enjoy what they are doing. The class sizes are small, and each grade has few sections, unlike other schools where they are 5 -10 sections for each grade. I can assure you that each child is known to the teacher, and is well taken care of.
Yes, I wish they had a ground where the kids could play sports - that is the only negative point I can think of for the school. Currently they have space only for a basketball court, and some other indoor games.
