Both my kids are in this school for last 2 yrs. I totally agree comments made by Devan. One comment on principal. She is fully committed, and kids likes her more than their teachers.
Pros
1) Principal, though sometimes short tempered with parents
2) Good infrastructure, airy class rooms,
3) Nominal fee
4) Good in academics - I wont say excellent..

Cons.
1) Some of new teachers are hopeless.
2) Number of students in a class is on higher side (some classes have 40 kids ! )
3) Many activities are done for namesake. For e.g, stitching and chess class is a joke.
4) Too much of attention on activities like sports day, annual day. No studies for almost a month, as teachers are busy in these activities.
5) Location. Checkout in google maps. «less

My kid is studying there for more than 2 years now. I totally agree that they dont pressurize the kids and they are cool in their approach. They are far far better than any so called corporate schools. The main disadvatages that i felt is

1. they dont have any responsibility on the transport provided since its managed by somebody else. The person who handles the transport is not at ready to address any concerns that you raise.
2. There are parents of kids from the first batch of the school who is actively involved in the activities of the school. There is no representation of parents from other batches in the activities. Nobody knows how these parents are getting into the school activities.
3. The principal sister is not at all approachable. She gets agitated if we raise any concerns. She doesnt have the patience to take any feedback from the parents
4. The fee payment, uniform measurement, book buying and all is very poorly managed. you need to spend hours standing in the queue with your kids and they say standing in queue for hours makes you more attached to your kids and i dont think nothing is needed to make you attached to your kids.
5. Even for nursery kids the communication to parents are very very poor

After all it all depends on the teacher who is teaching your kids. Last year my son's teacher was excellent and now its not good «less

Basically I have a very good opinion about the school, I do have a very general question. How's the school handling the religion?. Though I am open to any religion, but there has to be a limit.
Also heard there is a separate subject on Christianity in this school, can someone throw some light on the same pls.. thanks in advance..

They expect parents to do all the work. It is impossible to communicate with a kid's teacher and they don't care beyond giving admissions and behave like real estate developers who don't care about the customer after the sale. I'm planning to take my child off the school. The worst part of the school is the head mistress Sr Manisha who does not even know to behave .
Don't put your little children there because they have don't have ayaas to take care of the basic needs of the children «less

Hello Friends,
Based on the reviews, i approached the school for admission to higher class. 7.
Will have to move from cbse to icse.
A written test was conducted. The test was tough as told by the child. As some of the
questions asked were not taught to them in their syllabus.
I was told that they would let me know the result later.
I have some querries in my mind if any of you could clarify.
In how many days can i expect a reply.
what are the chances of admission.
As told by Roopa, no smiley faces.
I wasn't taken around the school to show the infrastructure and facilities.
No formal information given on the curriculum, teaching methodology and Fees structure.
No receipt given for the Prospectus.

I would appreciate any information that you feel may help me in knowing more.

Well said Suja, Roopa, Surbhi...

This is a school that is growing taking slow and steady steps, do not discourage without ample data point :-)

As all school they have concerns, but they do address them also as Suja mentioned

Teachers are very down to earth and approachable. Student strength off late has been increasing. Please do not comment on a school without having a first hand experiance. Request to talk to parents before you make judgement. You might not know the junior section had an excellent ayaah called Shantha who takes care of kids so closely , i have had mutliple instances where have seen her going way above her duties. Its not a posh school , but definitely disciplined and sensitive towards kid

Only negative point is about the school transportation which we don't like they don't have their own buses . Present buses are on rent & charging more....
Otherwise i liked school very much with respect to other things like studies & discipline (& even nice sports day) «less

The only down side I see is the location of the school. Approach road is not very welcoming. But school bus covers that, I don't see any problem with that. «less

@ashily,
your source of information seems to be unreliable, my son studies in std 1, and i never had any such experience.The school is so caring that they keep Cough syrup in bad weather . Students coughing too much during class are given this by sister (My son told me). Now name me any international school who does that.
There is a sick room and a doctor sister too.
There is misconception that we can buy good education only by paying huge amounts.
As far as studies are concerned that is far better then so called many International schools.
I agree that teachers and other office person do not put smiley faces when they are approached.
But i guarantee you they are far sensitive then the pretty admission in charge sitting in front desk in Vibgyor. «less
