I need a review of Podar International School, Ambegaon. Please help me out as this is the only school closer to my proximity.
School is excellent.Academics, Activities are excellent.My niece studies in Std 1 of Podar international school Ambegaon. We liked the school very much. I am planning to shift my daughter to this school in std 4.
Thank you so much for your review. I am planning to send my daughter to this school. Can u just let me know when does the admission process for Nursery starts at Podar?
Normally they start admissions after 15 th Nov. For std 1 onwords admission procedure will start in the last week of Nov.
I spoke to them...they sounded unfriendly over phone. I sort of felt unwelcomed. They did not give proper reply to my questions about various things> the attitude was like....who the hell are you to question about the school, only we can question you. I was surprised to see an International school with the top heavy attitude.
Even I had same experience last Friday. I am rethinking of the option now.
Hi I am Ameet , im also planning to send my child to Ambegaon Podar school.
I see you guys are not happy with the school please let me some specific reason if you want to share it
My Name is Yogesh & visited the school on 9'th Dec 2010.
I got good response & they answer very well to all questions.
Still I am looking for more reviews about how they teach
I also found the school good. Actally the school is new and i am planning for my son in 5th STD. I saw only 30 students in current 4th class.
I am not aware of how they teach and all.
Yogesh in what call you are planning to put your kid
I am looking for nursary
How did you find the school . TIll now i find it good except the campus is too small . I am planning to finalize it tomorrow.
Please share more thoughts about this school as I am also planning to put my daughter in this school.
When I visited last time, I heard that teachers are talking in Marathi with the students of 1'st or 2'nd standard.
Did anyone confirm whether they do talk in english or marathi?
I had a talked with couple of parents there , and they said they have noticed a good change in their kids when compared with previous schools like Rosary , Sinhgad Spring Dale etc.
About teachers speaking , i myself saw that kids of 1st std were talking in english among themselves. So i am assuming that teachers talk in english
Thanks for the info Ameet
I have decided to put my daughter in Podar as that is the only good CBSC school near my house. I stay in waraje. About Rosary I have heardthat its not good and even I didnot like its infrastructure. But problem with Podar is that they don't have bus service to my home. Is anybody stay near waraje and have kid admitted to Podar. Can anybody suggest me some good van service to the school. Any related info will be much appreciated.
hi there...what have u all decided abt taking admission in podar?

i heard that they r going to increase school fees by 10 % n transport fees also...are the fees normal n fine?have u all found out?
also they have mgmt probs from std 1st....even parents meetings r not held properly pl help i want to decide rgt...!!!
Does anyone know about the fee structure of the school for Class 1. They seemed a bit reluctant to disclose it over the phone
for jumbo kids(nursery,lkg,ukg) its app 35000
for primary its abt app 37000
for secondary its abt app 39000
transport fees are separate...for me its 10600 yearly for 5-6 kms...i stay in kondhwa annexe...i have already taken adm for nursery...school is v good...i have spoken to a teacher of podar n 6-7 parents personally...
on phone ask for accountant n say that u want to take admission so wants to know the fees structure..they will surely reply.
Thanks for the quick reply! just one last query - What's the deposit they need apart from the fees. I am seeking admission for my son in class 1
for nursery they havent taken any deposits n i dont think so they will take any deposits...they dont take interviews...of child n its first come first admission basis...MOST PROBABLY will be same for primary too...
have u ever found out abt the reviews of this school??
Podar international ambegaon is an excellent school. Specially primary and highschool section is too good. Last 1 year my daughter is studing in the school and I have seen remarkable change in her . Good part is the teachers teaching in std 1 do not know marathi so they talk in English only.
Many students got medals in science and math olympiads.Attitude of staff is very positive. But pre primary section is horrible. No planning, no proper communication with parents, this is because of unexperienced HM.She is too young and unable to handle things. My son is admitted in nursory and today I had a very bad experience
Transport is not settled yet and HM is not ready to come out of the cabin to see the situation and guide the staff. It is very disappointing
My daughter is also in Podar in Nursary. Yesterday, bus didnot come to my home and when I went to school it was total confusion there. Thank God, atleast today they managed to come on time..
I have observed little mismanagement in preprimary section during this first week of the school. But considering this is a new school..hardly 3 years old.. we should give them some time to sort out the things. I hope ( and cross my fingures), education will be good here as Podar Education is named for.
Yesterday was much better as management had sent a person from Mumbai.
As you said still there is mismanagement in preprimary section. Though the school is 3 years old how highschool section is managed? I am realy disappointed.Now management has promissed to take meeting of all parents so hopefully the time will be communicated to us properly by hm.
Really we only can hope for good education .
This seems to be very old post regarding Podar Internatinal School, Ambegaon.
I just started looking for school for my daughter. What is the minimum age to get admission in nursary. What is latest fees? how is the school environment ?
Comments needed from parents who admitted their children in this school.
Thank you very much!
My daughter is in Nursary class in podar and overall I am very happy with the school. They have organised quite good activities through out the year. Open house is there every month. I would definitely recommend this school for your daughter as well.
I heard that now they are going to increase their fees. So for fees, I think, its better to give a call to school and they will explain it.
Thank you very much for your reply.
I will visit school for more details.
I stay in Katraj Kondhwa Road, can u please assist me for the following..
1. Is Podar International school, Ambegoan is close to Katraj, how much will be approx distance.
2. How is the infrastructure and the admission procedure.
3. when is admission get started for academic year 2013 -14

Few people said it is very good, others are saying - it is not good, teachers speak with children in Marathi, caretaker Mavashi does not look after the kids carefully.
