I am planning to enroll my son who will be 5 in Feb 2010 at KFI. The school has a criteria of 51/2 year by June which my son will be 2 month short of. So, my question starts from there, if the school is very specific about the 51/2 year criteria?
Yes, as far as I know. See the posts here that discuss this - How's The School KFI
I want to know if the implementation of that concept is as mentioned in their website.
How are your kids liking the school, how do you like it as a parent.
My son loves it. I like it as a parent because it allows him to leverage the unique strengths he has for learning. It continues to encourage his creativity and confidence.
Is it a middle class centric school?
Please elaborate on what the term "middle class centric" means. The school itself has a mix of parents from various backgrounds and there is no stereotypical parent.
- I have been talking to many people regarding schooling and related aspects. The general opinion from people I have spoken is that the basics will be very strong once you graduate from this school. However, they will find it difficult to adjust to the rate race once they join the main stream and that the needed street smartness at times will be lacking. Are you of this opinion? What is your thoughts on this ?
This is the general perception of many. This is a decision you have to make based on your values. We picked this school, because we think it teaches children to think well, analyze the facts, make a decision and execute that decision with confidence. Invariably, when this process is followed, they enjoy what they choose to do and succeed at it too.
Hope that helps,
