I have applied SM1 for my son at SSM, Perungalathur branch. I heard a lot of good things about the school and decided to try my luck applying for the same. Though I stay at Valasaravakkam and my son studies at Pon Vidyashram, Valasaravakkam Branch I had decided to change his school due to its shift system(for more revenue), frequent change of class teachers( 4have changed so far in UKG), management attitude.
On knocking many school doors I was driven away with negative feelings that admissions to 1st STD is next to impossible. Finally I heard about this school and with lot of follow up efforts I finally managed to get the application for for 1STD(SM01, as they label) and apply. Though admission is based on clearance of a written test from 1STD onwards.
If my son is admitted I have to shift my residence near to the school or near to their bus pick up points. I had taken this hard decision though I have to travel 40kms one way to office daily.
Reading my story above can any of the parents whose wards are studying in SSM enlighten me on how the school is about (in terms of curicullam, extra curicullam activities, spoken english...etc.,)
Please do the needful

SSM school is doing good in extra curricular activites and studies...its one of the top school in south chennai...They had their campus in chromepet and now they are shifting to new builidng in perungalathur..all new admissions will go only in the new building..I have spoken to parents of SSM and they said its doing good..only concern is the food they give..although its hygenic,,but some students dont like all the foods..the school has the rule that until 5th std or 4th std transport and lunch is compulsary in school..they provide bf,lunch and snacks...
if you are looking for good school around tambaram.this should be one in ur list
i think the school have alredy issued forms for next year for SM1 and other secitions..kindly call the school also tosee if any vacncies are there
Any idea on the admission fee and the term fee in SSM.
At present we are in Trichy and planning to shift in Mar.
term fees is 11k ,4 terms a year so arnd 44k
transport 6000 oer term..so total is 68K with transport,meals,stationary and other swimming dresses etc..
20000 one time caution deposit...
I have got call letter for my daughter for JM1. One question. I understand that she will be going to Perungalathur school only. However, after SM2, from 3rd std onwards will she go to Chromepet? Any idea?
Also FYI all, Perungalathur branch is yet to be affiliated to CBSE.
Currently they add new classes every year..all new admissions will go only into perungalthur..when the current + 2 students go out of chrompet the next section goes out to perungalthur .. i think in another 3 yrs they will completely move out of chrompet as the lease got expired..
so you dont need to worry out switching between chromepet and preungalthru
we can also confirm this doubt on the 26th meeting
Thanks for your response! Yes, we will get it confirmed on 26th. Your kid is also getting into JM1?
yes i also applied for JM1 for my daughter and got the call letter for it..
Many thanks for all your replies. Sorry for my late response as I was traveling on business.
njraman007, chittusmom, gssaravanan - many thanks for your participation and especially njraman007 for your detailed replies.
For gssaravanan: I still request you to try your level best by calling up the school (044-22792095/96), sending letters, and try to meet their correspondent ... seeking admission for your ward. I am sure that there shall be last minute drop outs in admissions and hence you shall get a chance.
I have also received the call letter for the meet on 26Jan'13.
Request to advice what are the best gated communities for me to search for rental spaces near to school bus pick up points and also nearer to Railway station( as I need to commute to work).
i would suggest you to check in east tambaram or west tambaram..perungalathur would be ideal as well..but not sure about the gated community..if you look beyond perungalathur u have gated community but the power cut is around 13 hrs..till perungalathur is 2 hrs daily..
try to check in sulekha and tamaram times paper for it..chrompet also have good residentail location as well
@RKAZA: Try Jains in Rajakilpakkam.. 4.5 kms for station and bus comes to the door step.. also u can check out gated communities in the Tambaram-Velachery road..
Many Thanks for the replies. Shall try at your suggested locations.
How much could be the rent at Jains?
is that JM1 means the Pre KG in SSM? if so any idea on when the form distribution starts for 2014-2015 batch?
can any one tell me that will they provide admission for lkg...i heard that only pre kg then 1std....plz suggest
@vanprak: Yes. JM1 is equivalent to PKG in SSM. It is better you ring up them and inquire abt the form..
@Sumathisenthil: Yes, they dont provide application for LKG(JM2), It is only for PKG (JM1) and 1std.
KIndly try contacting the school by aug 2013.for 2014-15 admission..u can join ur kid only in JM1(prekg) or in 1st std..they dont accept in middle like lkg,ukg..as its a 3 year program

I just have a few doubts. Is transport compulsory In SSM ? Some one told me that we can to chrompet branch for SM1 is it true?
Just wanted to know any Vijayadasami admission allowed in SSM ?
Transport is only optional and u can even get your kid on your own vehicle..in future chromepet and perungalthur will operate as two seperate braches of the school each has its own sections...kindly check with school about internal movement
JM1 admission is complete for vijayadasami..kindly check with school abt any opening
I am trying to put my kid in SSM for SM1 (1st std) in 2014-2015 batch. I heard that the entrance exam will be in the month of Dec 2013 or Jan 2014. I am constantly calling them to know when they will give the application. Please let me know if you have some idea on this. Your efforts are highly appreciated.
Also, i reside in west tambaram near ramesh nagar. I heard they have only limited pick up points. Will they accept if we suggest for new routes? I am a working mother. In the morning i can drop my kid, but in the evening no one is there to pick up if the pick up point is too far from my home.
Hope you guys understand the problem... Please suggest...
You need to be constant touch with the school for admissions. However your son needs to complete 3.5years of age to join as on June 2014 for eligibilty for admission in Prekg/JM-1
Kindly refer my earlier thread on admissions. Normally the opening of admissions shall be known only if there is a constant touch. Also befriend some parent near you to know the application dates, since the current students are sent circular on the same. I shall also post immediately when my son receives the circular. Also please make efforts to meet up with the correspondent for securing admission.
In regard to the transport points there are many points modified in the current version. Shall try and list them asap. However I doubt if school encourages the request for a new point.
Please try with hope by visting school and pestering to meet the principal/correspondent. You shall be lucky to get admissions.
Thanks much for the replies...
Will try my level best...

I am trying to put my son in JM1 for 2014-15 acad year, I have sent an email to the school email id and have called them up.
Today, I was told that the admission for JM1 hasnt started yet and would start tentatively next month and since I have already sent an email to the school, they would reply to the email and let me know when the admission would begin.
I am waiting to hear back from them on the admission process and pretty excited about the times ahead :)
