Hi,
I am very eager to put my child in Legacy. I have been following the school and the review comments. Right now I have mixed feeling of the school. I came to know that the school isnt ICSE affliated. Wouldnt this be a problem? Not sure why the school is taking time to get ICSE affliated. Also the comments on recent 100% fee hike is worrying. I am fully confused if I should go for the school.
Can someone please let me know regarding school's affliation and when will it get affliated. What will be the future of students coming out in Xth or XIIth. Will they be able to secure admission for other colleges and professional streams.
Will be very helpful if someone can help me with my queries «less

@Leela, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Really happy to know about Mrs Roopa Swamy, but a little confused now.....Mr Sait is the New Principal right ? And the previous principal Roopa Swamy is still working with Legacy ? What role has she taken up now ? Hope legacy still runs under her leadership....

I am told everyting else is actuals - books, uniform, shoes, some jacket i heard, shorts also, They lkeep taking money throughout the year for their Annual Day and they make money at sports day by selling eats and coold drinks and have some trips. few are not charged but others very expensive. hidden charges are a lot. believe the Principal is very good and the curriculum very well done by her but with so many things like fees hike in big % every year how to trust the Managemnt? Good results in 10th (UK board) I heard for first batch. «less

All you people who are in Legacy or have applied and those who have got admission this time, let me share something which may give you confidence. Having been with the school since it started in 2005 as Vidyaniketan Academy, I have very fond memories of the old school and how homely and personal it was. Roopa, the Principal is the most approachable person I have known and her vision warms mine and many a parents heart to know that our children are in her hands. Yes we did see a flurry of change in 2009 when Mr Sait entered fresh and new from the US and wanted the school to take a 360 degree turn to westernising VNA or more so bringing in americanism. It was a painful junncture and we all were torn apart by the fee hike and moving campus which no doubt is nice, but we thought all was lost. The one hope and direction was the Principal and we stayed by her and its good to know that she is there and at the helm of the academics, tho Mr Sait sometimes tries to give in her two penny bit, but just a 2 minute talk with Roopa and you will go away happy and reassured. So put your money in and keep your faith in the Principal Roopa Swamy who will be yourr guide, friend and mentor and Counsellor. What a versatile person she is ! «less

Transportation is outsourced. To my knowledge Kamanna travels is the major operator among others. They have a good team of drivers and attendants who are very courteous and responsible. I have had no issues in the last 3 years and I think all parents who are using Kamanna tvls service would agree with me. They have a fleet of yellow buses.

Dear Reddy, the school does not have it's own transportation facility. It is outsourced. School management does not have control over anything on the transportation. The fee is fixed by vendors and it is not standardized by the school. They use mostly Omni vans, which is unsafe for the kids, they don't even paint in yellow which is necessary rule to follow. Attender was there only for a couple of months and that was the end. If you ask the vendor, he will threaten by saying send your child by another van. I think it is happening in most of the routes. «less

Mr. Saad was pretty direct and am sure he would have informed us had we asked. Most schools have admission fee which is partially refundable in case the child wishes to change the school due to transfer etc....how much of this 60k is refundable and yes, how much increase every year is the question we should be asking. If anyone has the actual details i would really appreciate if he/she could share it or else one just call and ask the school «less
