We went to submit the application form for my 2 year old son for admission to Pre-KG. The staff was courteous and they informed us that we will get a intimation for a interview by sms. Mostly it will be on a saturday in November.
I can't rate the school yet!
Today we had a interaction session @ Presidency with my son. We were informed 5 days in advance about time and date for the meeting. We went there @ 10.15am. There were 4 counters. At each counter, a teacher was asking general questions and collecting information about parents and the kid. At the end of session(less than 15 minutes),we were informed about the school activities,fee structure(not in detail) and the admission process.
The results would be communicated within 3 days of interview session and parents are given 3 days to confirm their ward's admission to the school. In case if we don't pay the fees in 3 days times,the child gets into waiting list. This is the process.
We are counting next 3 days!
As you said, even i can't rate the school at this point of time.
Hope you have already got an email/SMS from them to pay the fee.Have you verified the teaching and school's reputation alreay?.
Please share your thoughts ASAP. my due date is tomorrow ;-)

On Nov 19th,we met the principal and after speaking to many parents whose kids are already studying in the school,we decided to admit our kid to the school for Nursery for academic year 2011-2012. I must admit that i am taken aback by the fee structure because i completed my entire education from 1st to BE in 10,000/- at a reputed institute @ Mysore!
School starts on June 3rd,2011.
This school which is situated at kasturi nagar is a new school and it is just improving. The extra -curricular activities was not much in this school and there is no entertainments to the kids and parents. There are no contacts when the kids take leave. They are concentrating only on the money and there are no activities done for the kids on the occasion of independence day/republic day/ mothers day/ teachers day/ etc....- by BHARATHI.

thanks for giving us an oppurtunity to join my son to highly esteemed organisation thanks once again- by manjunath on Jan 20, 2011
I first visited this school located in Kasturi Nagar area (near NGEF) in Nov 2008.The very first thing I noticed as a parent (and you should too, if you love your children) was that there is a slopy ramp just outside the kinder garten classes.This is an unsafe condition.
The brochure of the school is enticing and very well designed, no doubt. The Principal Mr Thangadurai seemed to be an affable personality initially but once we paid the fees, we saw a different personality altogether !
It was a new school. The classrooms were spacious. But toilets did not have water. I experienced this myself. Okay, may be there was no water that day. Let us forget about it !
There were hardly 4 or 5 students in each class (I am talking about classes IV onwards). I paid the fees thinking that the school was founded by freedom fighter Mr Abdul Hameed, so there will be focus on quality. But the office staff was leaving every month and there was a new face everytime we made an enquiry.
Subsequently, due to a career shift, I was transferred to Hyderabad.I had to cancel my admission. The principal simply dilly dallied paying the refund even though I had intimated to them well in advance about the cancellation. He made impossible demands from me asking for so many documents and I was relieved that I did not pursue my interest in this school. Eventually I lost my money but gained from my experience !
I remember I was waiting in their office in Feb 2009.With great reluctance, the principal gave me 5 minutes after making me wait for over 1 hour. Nothing came out of that meeting. But while I was waiting in the office, I noticed certain things. One lady (I presume a teacher) walked in with a low hip saree, loads of lipstick and a sleeveless blouse and made contacts with the school office to seek appointment with the principal. It was regarding an excursion to Lalbagh Botanical Garden. She looked more like someone who was all geared to attend a party thrown by Vijay Mallya rather than someone who had come to teach in a school.
Everyone in the office seemed to be intimidated by the temparamental principal and they made no bones to display their fear openly.
As I was busy with my office work, I did not pursue the matter but felt bad that a school trust founded by a freedom fighter swallowed my money. It was not as if the school was in great demand & by cancellation of the admission, they lost heavily. Still, they successfully shortchanged me.
I can't rate the school regarding the teaching. But the rating that I have given is based on my initial experience.
each and every bit of your observation is correct. the problem is that parents keep their moutn shut. therefore all the schools are doing the same buisness. i don't know where to send our children.- by aparna on Mar 30, 2011
We had very bad experience for past 5 yrs in this school, there is no good class room facility and no staff facility. they said 2 teachers per class for PreKG, LKG and UKG. But since Pre KG in my kids class only one teacher is available. We assumed that after 1st this trend would change. But it became worst after 1-st. The particular subject teachers are leaving in between and they are not having back up staff and not hiring new staff as well.
Our kid's class Math teacher left the school in between and they are managing with Language teachers ( Hindi and Kannada) to teach math.
Now when the hindi teacher left the school they have Maths teacher to teach( manage) the Hindi subject. Are they really teaching the subjects to kids are just managing the kids for 7 hrs. Really worst staff arrangement.... Need to do better atleast for the fees they are collecting from the parents.
As a parent a child should not be punished severely in school. My child is undergoing severe punishments and due to this, is mentally disturbed and not able to concentrate in studies.
A child should be punished if he or she does mistakes but the punishment should not be severe. Pulling hair and ears, beating with a board on knuckles etc is not the way to punish in a professional school. I request to look into this matter very seriously and treat the child a child and not like dogs.
