I started researching for a good school near Sarjapur road some 3 weeks back. Looked @ Greenwood High, Oakridge International, GIIS & Harvest International. After initial conversations with the admissions staff and looking around, pursued next levels @ GIIS and Harvest. The general experience at both the places was good. The admins/ coords were generally pleasant to deal with.
My primary concern with GIIS stemmed off the fact that their infrastructure is barely complete, their staff in recruitment and they apparently have hired a principal but aren't ready to announce the name just as yet. I could have no conversation with any senior person such as a principal/ chairman/ vice principal etc who could clarify specifics about the curriculum etc.
At Harvest, the experience was very different. On my first trip, I was given a quick tour of the school and led to talk to the vice principal. She gave elaborate input on their assessment system, sharing of feedback with the parents etc, which really had me convinced. The next visit (today) was accompanied by the kids & wife. Given it was PTM day, they let us walk around freely and we had the opportunity to talk to some parents whose kids already attended the place and all of the input was very convincing. Then we were led to meet the principal this time around and the lady was very convincing and pleasant. She advised it best to take the admission test @ the earliest convenience given their grade 1 admission were in some demand. I opted to have my kid take the test immediately!! Where she goes now, my kid is the running class topper and so I believed it would be easy enough for her. Wrong decision! I was aghast with the results posted from her test. She had fared well on math but very poorly on language given the questions were off scope of what she has currently learnt @ her current school. Went to meet the princi again with the results with a shallow face, but the lady maintained her pleasant demeanor and actually approved to admit my kid after a quick conversation with her, indicating she sounded smart and should be able to cope up. Was provided input on fee structure. It was not out out of the world and I wrote out a check for the one-time admission fee for new joiners as an admission confirmation.
In all, process was pretty straightforward & clean with no hidden agenda seemingly. The reason for knocking off 1 star was this.... I had taken pains to download e-forms of the school admission docs, got the medical cert attested by my kids ped, did all of them neatly and when I submitted it @ the office, I was told I had to redo the real (color copy) admission form from the prospectus, which did not make any sense to me as to , firstly why is there a form on the web avail in which case! I was honest enough to let the admission assistant know of my beef with this and he quietly acknowledged to let management know.
After a lot of research and reading on internet, i confirmed Harvest International for my son.We visited Cherubs and Harvest International last Saturday and was very much convinced with their teaching methodology, environment , the Staff and infrastructure.Though Cherubs ishas small campus, they do have lots of activities to engage kids, including dance, music, sand pit,etc.
The campus at HIS is decent in size and covers everything required for a kid at school including big playground ,library, music class , dance class labs,and indoor basket ball, tennis, badminton court.They shift the focus on the studies as the kid grows. Initially they start with 60% acextra curricular and 40% academics. and 8th onwards it is 70% academics and 30% extra curricular. They are affiliated to CBSE and have plans to run IGCSE as they get enough strength for it.
Their Day care facility is till 7 30 pm at cherubs Montessori in HSR. Kids going to HIS can also be dropped at Cherubs's daycare if they avail this option. Principal at HIS was very humble and fair in her conversation. I enrolled my son in M2 at Cherubs for 2014-15 session His seat will be blocked in HIS in grade 1 but we will have to pay the Admission fees again.
