Anybody has any feedback on this school? We recently visited this school for the 1st std admission. It looks good on a first impression. Was wondering if anybody in this group has got any first / second hand experience.
I dont have direct experience but my nephew and niece have been there for about 1.5 yrs and my sister and brother in law are very happy with the place
I visited the campus once for a school function and was pleased with my interactions with the staff, am planning on putting my daughter there next yr when she completes pre-primary
Thanks for the reply. It will be good to know which standard your nephew and niece are studying. Even I am impressed with the initial pitch of the school and the campus. But since it is new, we do have some initial hesitation.
They are in grades 2nd and 5th, Inspite of my sister and brother in law being very happy I too had the same reservation as you and only managed to allay my concerns by speaking to a few other parents to see what their experience was like, and in all cases the feedback was either good or very good. I did this just to ensure that I was speaking to a representative sample of parents (Another factor which bolstered my confidence was that the school management themselves encouraged and arranged for me to speak with existing parents before arriving at a decision)
Hope the info helps, if you get to know some new info/feedback do share it with me.
I have gone through your previous exchange, it has been edifying and helpful as I am also strongly considering Sanskriti for my son and the feedback will be very helpful for me to make my decision in favour of the school
We should also not miss the travelling time. I feel sanskriti is too far from sangvi, aundh, and nearby areas.
The school is more convinient for people staying near chandni chowk areas.
I stay in Baner and feel that even though the driving distance is about 10-15 min more than what it would have taken me for some of the other options but on a holistic basis if one were to do a balanced scorecard for the school then I am convinced its still the best bang for the buck this side of town.
The clincher for me is that the teachers and the ethos here resonate with my belief system best but as they say each to their own!
1.can anybody share the fee structure of this school?
2.I am looking fro 4th and sr.KG admission for my two girls for 2010-2011 academic year. Right now we have rented apartment at Kalyani nagar Pune.Will it be too far a commute?
3.We are new to Pune.Any feedback will be of great help. I liked the comments about this school from many parents in this site plus the website looks good too.
Kalyani Nagar would be probably be too far for you, I dont think the school has any buses running to that part of town.
My wife and I are relocating from Hyderabad and are thinking of Sanskriti for our son, can anyone provide feedback about what their teachers are like in the junior classes? (Grade 3rd)?
Thanks in advance
As with any other institution, the competence of the teachers spans a broad continuum! But on an average their teachers seem quite motivated and are a couple of notches better than comparable schools
Our son goes to Class IV and we have had no cause for compaint thus far
dear members,I found the news that principal of Saskriti is the daughter of late Swami Rama???? I don’t know yet if my decision about admission will change or not. But I was little disappointed with all the news about Swami Rama.If anybody has anything ot add to my note, please kindly do so, as I am kind of confused right now.
I am also relocating to Pune from Bangalore and strongly considering Sanskriti. My office will be in Kalyani Nagar and hence thinking of staying somewhere in Baner. What is the commuting time for kids from Baner to Sanskriti and back.
The commuting time will be approx. 35 mins. They have school buses running that area
We shall be relocating shortly from Gurgaon and have currently zeroed down on 2 options
The first is Sanskriti, the second is Orchid
The pros of Sanskriti are that the principal and teachers seem like an excellent team and they also have CBSE affiliation, The cons of Sanskriti (for me) is that the commute would take 20 mins longer each way as compared to Orchid
The pros of Orchid are that it is much closer to Model Colony and overall the teachers look ok, the cons of Orchid are that it currently does not have any affiliation and as such children transferring from here may have problems, the fees is also higher than Sanskriti
Any pointers are much appreciated !
after seeing the email of SandhyaArora, i am kind of little relieved. I had made up my mind for Sanskriti but somehow a small disapointment in terms of the news i had mentioned before ( please see that my user name has been changed from krishnatulasi to r2ipune, inadvertently some deletions happened and i had to relogin with different user name). believe me i was so scared to ask this question to everyone in a forum but now i am relieved when parenst say there is a good staff.
I had the same pros as mentioned by SandhyaArora and the only down side for us in choosing Sanskriti was that my husband's work is at Bundh Garden Road and i don't know how far will be his work place from locations like Pashan/Bavdhan/Kothrud which i heard are residential areas close to Sanskriti.
Can anybody please throw some light on this if you have any information.
We have recently moved back after a 3 yr stay in Mumbai, we came up with almost the same shortlist as you! We really liked Orchid and Sanskriti both (the staff is excellent in both places and even though Sanskriti infra is better but location of Orchid is better)
We finally chose Sanskriti only because it has CBSE affiliation and Orchid currently doesnt. The commute may be a bit more but on balance the affiliation is a more imp. factor
Hope that helps!
Hello Kavitha, can you please tell me the nearest residential locations for Sanskriti. I heard Kothrud/Bavdhan/Pashan are the areas.
Which place would have the shortest commute to school.
Thanks and Best Regards.
The most convenient locations would be Bavdhan, Aundh, Baner, Pashan and Kothrud. The driving time from these places would be 20-35 mins approx. depending on your exact location.
Bavdhan and Kothrud would probably have shorter commute times but my personal opinion is that Aundh, Baner and Pashan are better places to live in overall
Hope that helps
Orchid and Sanskriti are both great schools, but unless the driving time diff is too great I would reccmnd Sanskriti because of the big fee difference as well as the CBSE affiliation (On the teachers and infra front both are very good)
thanks Anant and Kavithak. Defenitely these are very useful information for me as i am very much to Pune.
We are undecided between Vidya Valley and Sanskriti. The teachers and principal in both places look stellar but one is an ICSE Board and the other CBSE board? Any idea which board is better from a long term perspective?
Thanks all, for sharing this info with us, I am also sailing in the same boat :-)
BTW, I would also like to know more about the parents' background of this schoolgoers viz. educational background, community, working/non-working crowd, economical background, etc any relevant info would be highly appreciated. Since as a parent I should know with whom my child is interacting & accompanying in school.
Do this school is particular about hygiene & language for communication apart from regular periods?
We have just attended one PTA but our sense was that the majority of the parents were mid-senior corporate executives, some defence officers, I also remember interacting with 2 scientist parents from NCL
Overall the kids seem well groomed though dont know specific details about language or hygiene rules!
Both boards are nationally recognized but CBSE has an edge albeit marginally so as it follows the NCERT syllabus more closely and most of the competitive exams are based on that pattern
I am parikshit from pune, i also planning to take admission for my son in Sanskriti Int School for nursery. School is very nice, My son is born in Apr 2007.
School is telling me, we can only take admission for those age are having more than 3.5 yrs. For that you have to take the admission for playgroup.
Now main concern is if I take admission in Playgroup at his age. At the time of his first grade his age will be more than 7 yrs. In normal case Playgroup, Nursery, JR Kg, Sr Kg and then 1st in this way child development goes.
Are they having any other approach? And if its normal practice of school, weather it will hamper its further education of college / engineering/ post graduation
If anybody having information, please share with me.
Can already Sanskriti parents or going to be Sanskriti parents, please kindly give some information where you are located in Pune.Because i assume you should have done lot of research for housing such that it is closest to school at the same time a good residential area. I am new to Pune and will be relocating sometime in March end, close to beginning of school academic year. Any feedback from you will be extremely helpful.
I am liveing in Bavdhan Area, Near to Chandani Chowk..For me it takes to 20 min to reach the school.
Hi All, Please give me your valuable feedback for my previous post.
What type of children follow this school, cosmopolitan or Marathis?
Hi Expertincn ,
I think mainly cosmopolitan and some marathi.
Generally in major international schools all over the world they take kids of age 4 in Nursery. May be they are also following the same guidelines.
