I have put my daughter in YPR for 7th Std, we have already paid the DD.
Though I felt the amt is high, thinking about education and I hope that YPR would follow the same pattern as in NPS RNR.
As many had the confusion that whether it is a Franchisee, Yes it is a Franchisee itself.
We somehow compromised in the Fee, but it is shocking that Transportation fee is Rs 26,000/- pa for a child.
I am not able to digest this when I heard of Transportation fee, it is very high fare.
Dear Parents I am thinking to look for a pvt van where we all can discuss and make our kids to travel which will also be cost effective.
I am staying in Basaveshwarnagar. We can plan for the kids who are in between Basaveshwarnagar and YPR.
Pl, inform me if anyone is interested and join hands with us.

Hello Sumsu / Vinagar / Aree,
Its now almost 6months your kids are in NPS YPR now, i would request you all to please share your experience with this school?
I am now in the same boat as you all were last year. I do have shortlisted the below schools for my son who will be joining mont in 2014/15 :
All of yours valuable feedback will definetly help parents like us to decide. I am getting many information on NPS YPR, but unable to decide and finalize depending on that. After I saw the discussion here, I concluded, this is the right group which can give the right information.
As you said it is almost 6 months my children studying in this school. As per my observation they are very strict, lots of pressure , ample of homeworks.
Of course strictness should be there but to some extent they are not allowed even to go for rest room in between classes and should go out only during short break which is ofr 10 mins or big break for that long queue would be there and students who are in the 2nd floor also should come all the way to the Ground Floor to use it.
With one rest room all the floors have to share it.
Some subject teachers who are having class before short break sometimes extend their classes and children are forced to be ready for the next class even short break is been skipped that time.
They collect 1lac as fee for the year, but don't allow to ON the Fan, they would have suggest to open the windows and not On the Fan, even Drinking water facility is not available.
Parents Teachers Meeting is not there. If we want to discuss something we have to write in the Dairy and send them, once they check they will return give us the Appointment Date with Time and we have to be there exactly that time for the discussion.
Really this is not the right manner to addresses these things but I am very much annoyed of this matter and I was also ready to take this issue till the Management level but children are very scared and they are telling that definitely reflect in their Mid term Exam results.
I am happy with Discipline and few rules like compulsory signing of Almanac , co curricular activities they follow but not happy with the things which I have shared as above.
Before Joining NPS my children were studying in Vani, I was not happy with the Parents Teachers Meeting conducted there.
Before the Meeting is conducted the class teacher would inform the class stating that the children should educate their parents they should not come and complain in the Meeting about their child , they should come see the progress card sign and leave the place.
If at all someone talks few issues which they are facing with a particular teacher or anything related to their child if they discuss in the meeting next day itself the Principal who come to the class, cal that particular child and starts scolding them for the issues raised in the Parents Teachers Meeting.
This incident is happened in my children class itself during partents teachers meeting one parents addressed few issues and next day the prinicipal came to the class and scolded that child .
Even home work is overloaded but few things are good in Vani like they teach Bhagvat Geetha every SATURDAY all should chant Bhagvat Geeta, teaching shlokas in kannada and sanskrit. Creativity projects etc are good.
I have shared my experience which might help you decide which school would be better for your son.
Thanks Sumsu for your valuable feedback.
I really appreciate your effort to answer my query. All the points that you have mentioned are true, as i have heard the same things from parents of all other NPS school kids.
All the schools have one or the other pros/cons. We have to decide upon the school that matches our basic requirements.
My kid is shortlisted for NPS YPR interview. Your candid review has really helped to get the school insight.I have few more questions in mind about the school.Please clarify.
- How is the unit test/exam pattern?
- Though the school has a big ground, are the kids exposed to varied sports? It is evident that the school is academic oriented, I want to know the level of significance given for sports.
- Do students need external coaching/tuitions in higher classes (6th onwards) OR every thing comes from school?
Please share more info if you have.
Thank you very much!
