Sreenidhi International School is the best Internatioanl School in Hyderabad. My children are studying in this school. I am very happy the way it is functioning. Following are the positive points of the school which no other school provides:

(1) The each class size is between 20 to 25 students only. It has the advantage of giving the individual attention to each child. The subject wise teachers give child centric care and maintains the individual childs profile and makes a regular review of it. It helps the child to comeout of his weakness in any of the areas of the subjectwise academics.

(2) Children from class 3rd onwards are sent to different labs and are given very basic understanding of the various practical aspects in relation to the theoretical matters as in the books. Thus the children understands the subject with a practical approach and they need not to memorise the books. They can wrie at their own. It gives the creativity to them, which is the basic for their future when they want to pursue like IIM or IIT, where the practicle application is given more importance as compared to the theorical aspects.

(3) Children are given indepth understanding of the subjects they learn. Like if in a geograpy if the chapter is relating to the Seasons, then every child participates in the discussion on it in their own way. The education is research based where evey child is encouraged to learn and find the answers of their doubts at their own by different means. It develops the learning skills of the child.

(4) So far as the sports are concerned it is the only school in Hyderabad which has all sorts of sports activities, which no other school in Hyderabad provides. Presently it has: A football Ground, A cricket Ground, four Tennis Courts (similar to australian open Standards), two basket ball courts, two squash courts, one gymnasium, a small golf court, Horse riding, a swimming pool, a badmitton court.

Therefore there is vast child to the sports enhusiatic children/partents to select their choice of sports. And moreover the important thing is that each sport has a seperate full time coach, who is expert in that particular sport.

(5) Arts are given equal importance in the school. Dance, Drama, Paintaing, Sculpture, and all forms of fine arts are taught here. And for these also seperate dedicated teacher is there.

(6) Further after boarding your children to the bus in the morning you need not to worry about his food requirements. Morning immediately after reaching the school everybody is provided with nutritious breakfast. After the two periods everybody is served with the nutritious drink either milk, fruit juce, bournvita etc. There is common dining room where everbody participates for lunch at noon. And in the evening while returning to the home everybody is given with snacks so that no child go home empty stomch. So parents need not to pack the lunch box for their children. Thus the children get the hot and nutritious food in the campus itself.

(7) All the stationery unlimited, Uniform 2 sets, Sports Uniforms 2 sets, Two pairs of shoes, four pairs of socks are given in a year.

(8) The school is full of various vibrant activities through out the academic year. and the child thrilled to go to school.

(9) There is international exchange programme also for the students. Wherein every year the children are sent to foreign countries alongwith the teachers to stay there for a 15days time and to understand the country specific culture, religion, habits etc. Similarly the students of the foreign school also vists this school.

(10) There are international and national seminars in the school wherein each child participates....................,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,

so long and so forth

I think no other school in India will be providing these much facilities to the children. Therefore you must be assured of the value propsition you are getting for your child against the fee of the Sreenidhi International School. The fee of this school, if you take all these into account, will be much lesser than any other International School charging in India and in Hyderabad particular.

I feel others also who wants to know about the school can contact on 9948813000 to Ms. Seema Kumar, Director of the school for further details.

Hi Shrini,

A very nice and exhaustive review of Sreenidhi. Can u let me know, how different it is from Oakridge?

Oakridge has CBSE and IGCSE curriclum whereas Sreenidhi has ICSE and IGCSE.

Which school would you recommend for a 7th grade child from USA ?

Rgds,

Mickey.

Hi Mickey

Thanks for your review.

Sreenidhi is much different from any other schools in a number of ways. It actually put into practice what it says. That's the biggest difference. Everybody claims only, but here it is actually practised.

The largest lush green campus of 50 acres , extends a very open space to the development of the brains. The learining in the nature actually has been adopted from the old theory of Gurukul teaching where the children learn under the natural environment.

There are certain events in the academic year where the children from the nearby villages participates in the school acvitities and they play with the school children. It develops the community belonging in the children.

The international exchange programmes, truely stands by the name of school as International and aimed at moulding the child a Global Citizen in real practise.

Most of the schools you will notice that the children forms some groups and they stick to those groups of 3 to 4 students and in some schools they do not mingle with the other children. But in Sreenidhi it is seen by the school teachers that it should not be happened and there must be a togethereness among the children.

Academics and Activities are being offered now a days by most of the shcool but these are few things can be noticed only when one learns in the Sreenidhi only, he can notice and find that how it is different in practice than actually claimed.

However the PYP from class I is being practised here.

The big thing to notice here is that it offers Boarding/Residential school facility to children. It offers 5 days as well as 7 days boarding facility apart from day scholars. Thus it offers a wholesum suit in education.

There are so many children from USA who are studying in Sreenidhi. There are foreign students studying here.

The School Belongs to the an Educationalist group which is running very successfully Sreenidhi Institute of Science & Technology,  a Top ranked  Engineering College in Btech and Mtech and MBA Streames in Hyderabad from more than a decade. Therefore they actually know what a child needs at schooling level to compete in future in various areas like Engineering, Business Management, Arts & Commerce.

Hope you will find it satisfies you.

Hi Shrini,

From your detailed review about Sreenidhi school, it reflects that every child is taken care depending upon his or her ability.Could you put some light on - as whether a child studying in this school would need a seperate tuition class or private tutor back at home for thier studies.

Also are the activities a part of the curriculum or are they optional.Do we have to pay seperately for each of these activities.

Thanks.

Hi

In addtion to Miny's query, can you also help with appro fee structure and their admission process

Rds

 

shrini 2010-04-05 13:44:53

 

Hi Miny and Lavanya P

Thank you for showing interest in Sreenidhi International School.

For the admission and the fee structure you can contact the School Director Ms. Seema Kumar on her Mobile No. 9948813000. But when I joined my children 3 years back, that time the fee of the school was comparatively less as compared to other schools of the similar standing.

Yes, you are right about the tuition. You need not to take up additional tution at your home. For this purpose there is a concept of ETZ i.e. Extra Time Zone. After the school is over by 3:30 PM, your children can stay in the school and in this extra time of 2 hrs. they will be assisted by the respective subject teachers to clarify their doubts and help them to solve various problems. It is a kind of private tution only where the children can ask and discuss seperately their doubts with the teachers.

Further during the ETZ the children can select some sports which they are interested into. They can play and take the help of Sports Coaches to adopt that particular sports as their passion sport and hobby and can excell in that particular sport.

The concept is deviced since after reaching the home by 5:30 in the evening the children just get exhausted and thereafter they waste their time watching TV and other enterntainments. Here in the school after the regular schools hrs are over at 3:30, they still have the energy and freshness, which can be channelised by them into the fruitful manner either in Academic related or Sports related.

Regarding the Activties. The Activities are the part of the Curriculum and you need not to pay any additional fee for these activities. Like the swimming is compulsory for all the children. They have to participate into it. And a national level full time swimming coach is there. My children were initially had a fear for swimming but when they saw others participating with the help of safety and good coach, they also joined the swimming with a little worry but in a week's time they become good swimmers.

Every body is to opt any of the two sports of their choice up to 6th standard and their after they must retain one out of it as their core sport activity. Similarly they have to opt two arts forms as part of their curriculum. Like some may opt a combination of Dance and Painting, Drama and Music, Music and Sculpture or like any of the combinations. These are part of the curriculum and it is not charged additional. However some special sports like Tennis or Horse riding or golf is there for which a little fee is charged extra.

It is the only school which extends the complete sports in one campus. Further it also has the policy to encourge the Sports enthusiatic students. If the Student want to take only the sport as their full time profession then those children are given seperate academic care to go through the basic academics which are must in any students life. Thus for example if one wants to choose Tennis as a life long profession, then he will be given throughout the day coaching on Tennis and special classes will be conducted for his academics.
