My son is getting a transfor from bangalore to Hyderabad .His daughter is 3+.They are planing to stay near Gachibowli area.Can you suggest a good school near gachibowli for my grand daughter.
You can try Chirec , Sentia-The Global School (in Miyapur) , Vikas-Concept school ,
Sri Chaitanya Techno School,
BVB and JHPS in Jubilee hills.
Can you give me the fees and admission details of these schools
In most of the schools ,admission forms are issued in Nov/Dec for pre-primary and admissions to pre-primary close by March. For std 1 and above ,forms are issued in the month of March and admission process starts by April or so.
Fee for BVB for pre-primary is around 35-45 K and almost the same for JHPS.
My neighbour paid around 40K for his son's admission in class 3 last year in JHPS
In Sentia ,fees will be a bit high. It will be around 1 lakh. But the school is very good.
One of my friends has paid 60K admission fees and 30K term fees for class 7 in Sentia -The Global School. For Pre-primary ,it will be comparatively less.
There is another good Pre-primary School 'Star Kids' of Sri Chaitanya Techno school in Ameerpet (opp to Sarathi Studio) and they are starting a new branch at SR Nagar this year. Fees for this school is 16K per annum and admission fees is Rs3000 i.e Rs 19000 in all (for Ameerpet Branch) and 18000 in all for SR Nagar Branch.
Children will continue in the same Sri Chaitanya Techno school from 1st std .
The school campus has Star kids in one block and Primary&High school in another block.
Chirec - fees for Pre-primary (around one lakh) .
DPS - My friend paid around 40-45K for pre-primary two years back. It must have increased by now.
But admissions in most of the schools such as BVB, DPS ,Chirec are closed.
You can try in Sentia , Vikas ,Sri Chaitanya Techno School.
There is a school expo starting at Nizam College Ground,Hyderabad
It is starting today i.e 19th feb'10 and will be there till 21st feb .
You will have stalls from various schools and their counsellors too with all the details .It will be open till 8:30 pm.
I think it will surely help you to decide a good school for ur grand daughter.
All the Best !!
Thank you very much for all the informations.I will definitely go the school expo.
Thanks once again for giving a prompt response.
Hi Chimmy !
I have written all the details in my blog too with the phone numbers..will write again for you..Its at Nizam College Ground at Basheerbagh. on 19th ,20t h and 21st feb
You can also call on these numbers to know more details.
9989613411, 9849844731, 9848343131.
Pl do let me know how was the Expo after your visit ?
Hi Chimmy !
How was the School Expo ? Did it help you in deciding or short listing any good school ?
Your informations were far better than that expo.Not many good schools came for the expo.I am not yet decided on school.
Thank you Chimmy but its pretty disappointing to know about the Expo.
I think the well established schools do not need any publicity and hence may not have attended the Expo .Did the schools present there reveal their fee structure in the Expo?
Do visit the schools you are interested in March and decide accordingly .
We are relocating to Hyderabad in March, looking for gud schools for my daughter (4 years old) near gachibowli area.. I am addressing you because u have a gud knowledge of schools in Hyderabad. My query is that u had refered Sri Chaitanya Techno School, and in website they had mentioned that they had just recieved the SSC Board recognization..dont they have CBSE/ICSE Board recognization? As in a transferable job, we would prefer that our child should go in CBSE/ICSE. If u know in this matter please let me know..
As far as I know, Sri Chaitanya follows CBSE till 5th std and later follows an integrated syllabus of SSC,CBSE and ICSE to lay a strong foundation for students so that by the time they reach class 10 they have a sound logical and analytical skills.However the certification in X is from SSC board i.e State Board.
If you have a transferable job within AP, you can opt for this school else CBSE is a better option than ICSE.
ICSE has an amazing English level. It lays a strong foundation in languages and Social science too. Maths and Science is also good . Its basically an activity based board. Weightage in Boards is given to their projects/practical application part as well as the written exams.All round development takes place in ICSE. But its too vast with many papers compared to CBSE.
Most of the entrance exams in Engg. and Medicine are based on CBSE syllabus.
English and Social studies in CBSE is lesser than ICSE board. But overall CBSE has many plus points. It changes and upgrades its syllabus from time to time and has introduced the grading system in X to reduce the stress level in children.
State board is easier than both ICSE and CBSE. However State Maths is too good. excellent....Maths is more than the CBSE as well as the ICSE board.
Generally the trend is to put a child in ICSE school till 5th and then shift them to CBSE board . After X, if the kids are interested in professional courses ,they study in State Board so as to excel in entrance exams as the Std of Maths is very high. However students can also continue in CBSE board after X as the maths and science is above par .
The main advantage of CBSE board is ,it makes the student think and improves logical reasoning and improves conceptual thinking.There are never direct questions from textbook in Maths or for that matter Science or any subject. So students concepts are very clear .In SSC, most of the times questions are from textbook.
As there are many CBSE schools throughout India , you can opt for a school with CBSE board. If you are in a transferable job ,you can opt for Central School / Kendriya Vidyalaya.Most of the defence offficers opt for this school for their children as they get transferred every two yrs or so. The fees in Central school is also very nominal. They might not offer so many luxuries or facilities as compared to Corporate schools ,but do churn out smart professionals.
I heard KV picket is very good. Once you get admission iany KV ,you don't need to bother about which school you want to put your child into after u get transferred as u have these schools in every state and a TC will get admission for ur child in any KV you seek.
Vikas and Maharshi Vidya Mandir in Kondapur is also a good CBSE school. The fees will also be economical in MVM.
If you are comfortable with high fees structure of Oakridge International School in Hi-Tech city , you can opt for it as it also follows CBSE apart from IGCSE.
So choice is yours.My suggestion would be not to invest too much in schools if you are in a transferable job and look for CBSE schools.
As my father was an Army officer ,I have changed 8 schools in my entire school life !! Almost every two years ,i have changed my school and could catch up with lessons and syllabus at any school easily and could manage to get any of the first three ranks.It was possible only bcoz i was throughout in CBSE board which follows readily available NCERT books. In case u miss ur studies or some lessons during transfer, u can cope up at home .
Please think it over ,before u join any CBSE ,State or ICSE school.
So all the Best !!
Now i am in Hyd, i went to newly opened school Phoenix Greens, Gachibowli.I found they have very small play area, it is perfect for small kids but from I class onwards where the child will do the sports activities?Do u have any idea about that School?

Hi Mickey !!
Thanks a lot for ur valuable information !!
will very soon meet the school authorities................God bless you
Please let me know if any school expos come this year also?
Hi Ann, Sure..I'll let u know. There is a Business School Expo going on now. I think the school expo will be around the same time (Feb'11) next year.
We are relocating to Hyderabad by 1st week of Sept 2010.My daughter is 4yrs old & studying in LKG in a NPS in Bangalore.Could u please suggest a best school near Gachibowli where we can get admission for her for the current school year.
Thanks in advance,
Mid term admissions are indeed taken by some schools. You have to emphasize on it being a 'transfer case' since some schools do give that a consideration.
Schools like DPS will consider too. You will have to pay whole year's fees in few schools.
You can get in Sentia-The Global in Miyapur ,MVM in Kondapur, Manthan International ,Meridian and CGR International at Madhapur.
Meridian's and DPS fees will be more compared to other schools. MVM will be easy on pocket. Sentia is also very good. Its fees this year is 55K. www.sentia.in
I know a few parents from this forum who have joined their children in Sentia-The Global. They are quite happy with Sentia in terms of education, infrastructure, amenities, teacher:student ratio (1:25) , extra-curricular activities ,playground etc. The school has audio visual aids in the classroom too.
The chances in BVB, JHPS, CHIREC, Obul Reddy are remote. These schools are a bit far from Gachibowli except for Chirec which is in Kondapur. You can also see Jain Heritage at Kondapur.
Gvipul and Agrawalankur have already done their survey regarding mid term admissions in the below links. You can find review of Manthan by Shailaja . Please go through these links. It will surely help you in knowing about these schools.
You can find DPS review by RSV in the below link.
If you are open to high structured fees, you can opt for Oakridge International near Gachibowli.
You can decide according to your budget after visiting these schools.
Any help , do let me know.
Thanks a lot Mickey .Will get in touch with you if i need more details.

Thanks a lot.
I don't have much idea about Pre-schools. But I have read good reviews of Euro kids in Attapur , Pillar no 200 (PVNR Express way) , Bachpan, pillar no 201 n Hello Kids too.
Please have a look and decide only after you talk to parents whose kids are in these schools. You must be having Euro Kids in Shaikpet too. Pl check out.
I as seriously considering Phoenix greens for my son and wanted to get some kind of feedback from anyone familiar with the school -
1. What is a typical day like for the younger grades? (LKG, UKG)
2. How are the teachers?
3. Do they have exams (all grades) ?
4. How (and how often) is feedback given to parents about child's performance? (progress reports, PT conferences etc)
Appreciate any information you can give me!
Please write to hydcomment through parentree inbox. His son is studying in this school. He is planning to join his second child too in the same school. I have read very postive reviews about this school posted sometime back in this forum.
Thanks Mickey- will do that.
