Hi Sjhalani,

Two of my daughter's friends are from Orchids. I spoke to them. They are quite happy with the school. I have seen one of them on Orchids International School ad hoardings. The school is going to shift to a new campus very soon. The old one doesn't have a good playground. I am trying to get in touch with their mother so that i will be able to tell u clearly about the school. I will get back to u soon.

U can also look at Sentia-the Global School at Miyapur , Meridian or Manthan International  at Madhapur where your son can get admission easily.

Hi Cind,
Orchids is located in Kavuri Hills, Madhapur. Its a good school. I am told that the fee is around 1,40,000. The old campus didn't have a good playground . I think, the school has now shifted to the new campus.  Please check out.

Rgds,
Mickey

Hi Cind, Get in touch with Nls too to know more about Orchids . He wants to shift his child from Orchids.  You can know his opinion too before deciding about this school.

Hi Sjhalani & Cind

   My kid was studying here in Orchids for last 2.5 years. Even I could not get admission to school as my relocation happened pretty quick and I missed all teh admission timings.  Admission here went thru pretty easy.. But there wasn't any play ground here at the school. They moved ot new building ( I hesitate to say new campus :-) ) just 500 mts away from previous building.. but the play ground is just little bigger than the basket ball court..   Not very big. I am more pissed off with teh school on few parameters:

   1. The school timings are from 9 to 4...  adn with their van routes and teh pick up points, my kid starts at 8 am and reaches home at 5 pm..   ( just 6 km away from school)..   it/s like any SW engineer ofice timings ..   I told this few times to teh school authorities, but no luck.

  2. The communication on any changes or events happenning at school is very poor.. we have to keep repeatedly asking for info.. our experience has been very bad on this front. for a school collecting so much of money and calling international school, I expected much better stands of keeping teh parents angened adn communicated..  But  did nto get it much. I get the fees due date notices pretty much with 100% acurate details :-)

  3. There are some minor ones too.. I am sure must be there for every school.. 

Disuss with them clearly..  if you both are working parents, then these timings might work better for you.

Meridian or Chirec are also good schools for you to consider.

I will be glad to provide more specifics, if interested.

Cheers

Hi Cind,
Prerna is good. Many parents have suggested this school in this forum.

Silver oaks , i guess is near Cement factory.  Check out the reviews of Jain Heritage in the below links.

Hi Cind

  recently there were few changes at Orchids, with new principal and few admin management changes. Things seem to be improving. Communication has improved with email and SMS promptly coming in to convey the message. This time when I went there for geting the certificate and payteh fee, I was pleasantly surprised atthe new guy at the reception handling it elegently. So please visit the school once.. definitely there are positive changes seems to be happenning. I am glad they realized now

Cheers

Hi Mickey,

Between Orchid, Gitanajli and Manthan, which one would you recommend for LKG admission of my son in June 2014.

my Son is born on Feb 4th 2011 and will be 3.5 years by June 2014.  He is quite active, communicates in English well for his age.

I was successful in getting okay in orchid and manthan. Geetanjali was informed to come around Jan 2nd 2014, worry for geetanjali is his age...as he will fall short of some 35 days.

i get some good corporate discount at Orchids school and zero discount at Manthan. Geetanjali fee is normal so no problem if I can get admission.

Hi,

i have been to manthan and orchids for PP1.

Hindu News Paper reported parents filing court case on meridian for indiscriminate fee hikes. Therefore didn't even look at that.

Manthan is asking the following fee for PP1

Donation (called admission fee) : 50K, caution Deposit 25K and school fee with bus and food 1,13,500. Food is compulsory...they do cook on top floor at the same building...I strongly see this as a risk to kids as many accidents in the past occurred due to cooking in the same building. Yearly fee hike 10%

Coming to Orchids International: Donation 50k, if you are from the tied up corporates you get some discount. 
Tution fee : 75K, transport (optional) 36K, Food optional (26K) and yearly expected fee hike 10-12% 

i personally liked the way Orchids has kept the premises and was very nice and warm in welcoming me.....Manthan was equally good....but no discount o. Donations...while orchids does offer some comfort.

i am yet to make my mind...checking few others and Orchids....I have ruled out Manthan due to Kitchen on the top can cause fire accidents.

you can email me further for doubts sravi24 at gmail

Hi,

We moved from USA and joined my kids in Orchids this year. I feel like the amount we are paying is not worth for that school.
I didn't see any difference between the normal school and this school.
I feel like for the initial phase it is ok but not for the long term.

Thanks for Info on Orchids. How is it with regard to the academics? I was looking for a good CBSE school for my son for Grade 9. I too liked the premises.
