 hey even i live in  pimple saudagar and have taken admission in eurschool wakad. it is just a 5 minutes drive from my home and the school is a company owned school. they are using all modern methods of teaching. have a look at them before finalising others.

Hi Manishkumar

I heard that construction of euro school is still in progress and no clue on transporation. Can you please share their fee structure (one time and tuition fees), did you also review other schools like BTIS and SNBP before finalising euro school.

 try ... Sanskriti ... you will never regret. 

 

Vicky80 2012-12-18 20:11:53

 

Sanskriti is too far from wakad/pimple saudagar. Wisdom is the good option but they've not yet started admission.

 

Vicky80 2012-12-19 14:33:02

 

Fee for wisdom should be around 70-80K only but can somebody confirm it. Also admissions are not yet started isn't it.

 Hi,

I would like to join this discussion as I am also looking for my son's admission in Jr KG. Latest new is there are no vacancies in Wisdom and Blue ridge for Jr Kg. So I am also not sure where to apply. I also stay at Pimple Saudagar. Which school is better

SNBP, AKSHSARA or GG International School. Do we have parent who can give feedback about these schools.

 

snhl 2012-12-27 14:09:47

 

 I also went to Euro School there fee is also around 80k and there is nothing with them for which I think I should pay 80K,

1) Under construction building

2) They have not recruired any staff except principal

3) No signs of bus facilities..

4) No Canteen for kids..

Then why should I pay 80K...?

 

 

 

Vicky80 2012-12-27 18:06:05

 

Don't think Akshara has any openings and not sure whether we should go for SNBP, I'm also watching for good reviews on this school. Did you visit SNBP, because we went there but it was not that impressive. Having said that it is just based on interaction with admin coordinator so I'm not saying that it is bad school. At the end it all depends on kids and not school to become scholar. 

About euro school in wakad, agreed 80K exluding trasnport, uniform is just too much for an under construction school which has not yet proved their position. INS is infact charging lesser than euro school and including meals in their fees.

snhl

Please keep posted on school that you finalise. I'm also looking out for admission to Jr. Kg. class.

Looks like I'm also in the same boat !...........

I just read posts on WWS fees, what is going on? ............RTE is favour for backward class but has increased fees for open category students, even if schools doesn't agree, it sounds like a fact.................WWS was not having RTE quota earlier and now when they've implemented it they've increased fees.......... Have they increased the fees for regular students in other classes as well?

 

snhl 2012-12-27 19:17:01

 

 Vicky 80, 

I am planning to visit Vibgyor School tomorrow. Lets see what happens.

I am also not impressed with SNBP. There is no point in more discussion on this school  if I say it does not look even hygenic to me.

hello friends, please dont look for only educational standard of school see the behaviour of staff (specially teachers) coz school's environment causes psychological effects on child's mind

 

Vicky80 2012-12-27 20:26:51

 

snhl

I've collected info on Vibgyor from my friend, fees including admission fee comes to 80K for Jr Kg excluding transporation (15K) and uniform. Overall has good feedback but haven't visited it.

 

snhl 2012-12-28 13:48:51

 

Vicky 80,

I could not visit Vibgyor today but I enquired about Fee structure so it goes above 1 lac including everyting for a year...

20000 (admission fee)+110000 (?)+484000 (Tution Fee)+ 1300 (Admission Form) + 3000 (Uniform)+ 23800 (Transport) = 107500 ..

Form Pimple Saudagad kid will have to travel for 1.5 hrs (45 minutes both way) everyday by bus 

Not able decide.. what to to do...

 

 

 

Vicky80 2012-12-28 16:53:49

 

Agree, fees structure matches with what I've collected and mentioned above. But as per reviews, it is definitely better than WWS and Blue ridge but I think we should give a though on fees.......I'm also thinking of going for pre school in pimple saudagar only as second option because now we don't have many options left in school category except euro school.

Hi Vicky80/snhl,

We stay in Wakad and my 3 yr old goes to Smart Kidz. So,if you are looking for a school with only pre-school and primary school options,SmartKidz is a feasible option. Their fee structure is nominal..however, their building isn't very huge/spacious..For now, it works well with me,since my kid seems to enjoy going to school. 

Education seems to come at a cost,nowadays, and that too a very high cost!..Am also looking for Good regular schools in Wakad, which aren't really very pricey.

Do let me know which school you are enrolling your lil one in.

Hello Parents

There are too many parents trying to take admission in Junior KG. Please keep this post updated with your feedback so that others can pick up and decide........I'm looking for schools around pimple saudagar. I want to go for schools rather than pre schools. Have you finalised any schools.............

 

Vicky80 2012-12-29 18:56:29

 

snhl - any further thoughts. are there more schools (even if smaller but decent) in and around Wakad.

 

snhl 2012-12-31 15:18:23

 

 Vicky80,

I could not finalize yet and you may want to check about,

city international school, Pimpri & Aundh, Spicer School Aundh...., GG internationa school pimpri..etc..

 

Vicky80 2012-12-31 17:27:51

 

snhl

City internationak school and spicer could be put in same category as SNBP. Both of these schools have bad reviews for teachers and are not rated high. GGIS is as expensive as Vibgyor and not worth compared to Vibgyor. Did you check out on Podar or BTIS.

 

snhl 2013-01-08 17:46:10

 

 Hi Vicky80,

I have not checked Podar or BTIS. Later I came to know that there are vacancies at Indira Kids Aundh for afternoon batch. So I have taken admission for my son in Indira kids.

If you are interested you can also try I think still they have seats available. I hope you know that Indira Kids has tie up with Indira national school so my son will be getting a seat in Indira national school for 1st standard.

 Hi snhl 

Every school is new for the first session. But if you see the brand name they will try to maintain it. Further they have lots of branches which is having good review. I have discussed with their Adm Head Mr. Deshpande regarding Transportation, Teaching Method, Course curriculum etc .. it's looks good. 

But since the school is new it can take some time to adjust the things.

Rest depends on individual choice.

Regards

 

 

VickyC 2013-01-24 21:12:56

 

 Hi 

I visited SNBP as well Location is really very good and very good building, but they are not able to maintain the standard and quality.

Even from my society few kids are going their but their parents are plannig to take admission in some other schools from next session. 

Regards

 Hi Kiran 

I enquired for first class the fees is around 63K + 20 Non refundable + 30K security Diposit. I don't think they are increasing for other classes.

 

 

VickyC 2013-01-24 21:17:47

 

 I totally agree with you propertypune.

 

PVT 2013-01-25 10:10:23

 

 Dear All,

 

Thanks for all your views, based on the above details and my visit to schools, I found Akshara much better in terms of quality, facilities, staff but having similar fees structure above.
