Looking at your post, is you r kid now with Shishya BEML school.If so can you please help me getting a feedback of this school
I also wanted to know if your kids are going there.
how is your feedback about school?
Feeback about this school is not good, give last priority for this school. In case did not get addmission in any of the school then only go for this school.
Hi Vivan, Any specific reason that you can share why this school is not good. ..am considering this school for my kid education..!! your reply is higly appreciated.
Recently I visited this school , (shisya BEML Public School) . I liked the environment,, They have new building , Nice Class room, Big play ground ,
Lot of Sports Item. Very silent environment, also have natural touch.
It is very difficult to get such environment in Bangalore school, which is very much inside City.
They have good no. of teacher .
I dont know much about quality of education. and their methood.
If their teaching is good then it will excellent to get into this school.
If somebody can give feedback about quality of education it will be great
When I visited last month, I was told that they have not started the admission process yet as there is change in the management.. I believe Pearson Education has taken over from Manipal Education group.....
My kid goes to this school and we are quite satisfied by his learnings there.
Earlier we had some doubts about the school as the infrastructure was not so impressive when we visited for the first time(but they had started with the new construction already).But when we got to know about the take over by Pearson group,then only we decided to give it a try.We have seen it improve a lot in the last few months with a new building and play area and other facilities. Teachers are also good and approachable. As far as education is concerned , I know only about the primary classes.and the methodology followed there is really good.
My thinking is that since it is part of a large education group, it will become a more popular name in near future.
Can I get your contact number? Need to talk to you before I enroll my ward. I also liked the school but not sure about teacher's quality and their teaching methodology. I'd appreciate if you can provide me some feedback on that.
Can you provide specific details why didn't like the schools? This will help other parents to take decisions.
hello..i am new to the forum..just came back after getting application form and prospectus from shishya beml school..was very eager to put my 2.8 year old for admission there sterday...but again today i saw a parent of a child of 2nd std. who says school was ok wen it was managed by manipal...now its come under pearson group..schoolfacilities good..i asked the mother y she feels school not good now from this year..she says the new teachers recruited by pearson will not interfere if there r problems like fighing among students...her son had a bloated face due to schoolkid fight..management not controlling students..so now i am double minded...if anyone knows anything about school,plz share soon...please..
Hi Goddess, even i had been on this saturday for admission for my son... i feel its good one, but not so fully happy abt this school. its not so high or medium as well. it looks like a low class school when u look are kids and parents... not so happy... feeling tht even our kid will also learn from them the way the other kids are. i would prefer to go for gitanjali vidhalaya, which i felt ok and good.
I'm not sure about your "low class" comment. Could you able to speak to any of the parents whose children studying in the school before you construct your opinion. I've still undecided thou. Saturday I'd reached late so could not get inside the school. I'm planning to visit next saturday.
I have also been there last week, collected the form and prospectus. Met the principal as well. The lady in Admission office told that they have a quota for BEML employees which is 25% but principal mentioned that it is 40%.
I felt that they are trying to create an artificial demand by asking parents to block the seat by paying ten thousand now and rest 20K in January 2012.
The principal also mentioned that they have collaboration with Pearson but school is still owned by the trust; I dont know what this trust is. The reason I looked at this school was that this is a Pearson school and hope that down the line some time standards will be maintained. Now the question I get is what if this "trust" ends collaboration with Pearson.
Can we get in touch directly with Pearson corporate and understand what is up with BEML Shishya? just a thought!
Yes, i think that would be the best way. Other way is to get info from someone who's kid is already going in school. We need to find those parents from friend circle.
But when you check on the website, its owned by Pearson. Pearson has 80% share while manipal has 20% share. They told me that they have also applied for 11th and 12th Std and it should be ready in 2 yrs...
Even i was told that BEML has 25% quota for BEML employees... We need to check with few more parents... best thing is go to school around 2.50 and find out from the parents who come to pick there kids..
here is the link.
Your suggesstion of going at 2:50 looks good becuase this is the time when we can meet parents and can get their views. We've to believe what school is telling us that it's 80% Pearson and 20% Manipal. What will happen if Pearson disassociate itself from BEML Shishya is anybody's guess. So let's don't go so far. Ideally, we should talk to some of the parents to get actual feedback. My only worry is quality of teachers employed by Shishya. if we can get good feedback on that then there should not be any issues. The infrastructure is not great but decent. it's the teachers who matters a lot.
I also belive that at this moment Quality of standatd is not very high. but I am hopefull about Pearson taking it up. Because school is in vey goold location and they have required infrastructure. Only by upgrading teaching standard , schol can uplift itself.
I think person group ( Or any big Group) can take this school to a very high standard
I have some hopes that Pearson may make the school better if they are going to teach by montessori method...so i am going for it....going to submit application form tomorrow for nursery for my daughter...hope they don't disppoint the parents!!
Yest my wife had been to school at 12.30 and met few nursery parents. The feedback was positive... Even though they have kinder Garden type, they teach montessori type of pronounciation. The teachers for nursery and KG are young and they teach very well... They give feedback everyday about the kid and also tell us how to teach our kids... Only thing is kids and parents are not of hi-fi or medium family, we can find very few parents who can speak english.
so anyone got admitted there kids in the school?
I went to shishya beml school sterday at 12.15pm and spoke to a group of mothers waiting outside the gates... They were waiting to pick up their kids....I asked them about the school, the academics as well as their extra curricular activities...Suprisingly, they were all speaking to me in good English...They told pre-primary education is montessori method and the best in this school....i saw very few mother's who couldn't speak English...I was impressed with what they told me...their only worry was about the fees being raised from this year onwards under Pearson management; most of them being homemakers...they also told the school is not very hi-fi in their way of dressing or attitude like NPS or New Horizon....but academics very good...teachers also good...Anyway, I was impressed with the simplicity ,discipline and academics...so I paid the reservation amount and filled application form for nursery today...I think Pearson is advertising to make this school more advanced like the other schools like NPS...hope I am not disappointed!!!
Personally, I believe, modernity should be in ideas and academics,not in dressing up trendy or showing off...the mother's who come speak English but r dressed very simple...that doesn't mean they are low class or medium!!!
I have visited the school thursday 5th Jan. I found the school is OK. The lady was polite and spoke very nicely. She is able to answer all my questions. I ma impressed with the school amenities.I am not sure about the teaching standards.
Can I opt for this school for my son?
I paid the remaining admission fees 20k on Jan 4th for Nursery...they said they will call me sometime in April - March for tuition fees, uniforms, books...School starts on May 31st, 2012....since we stay near 80 feet road indiranagar, the bus fees will be Rs. 1080 per month...My daughter still doesn't do proper potty...i am worried how she's going to do potty at school...
Surely, u can go ahead and get ur kid join tht shcool. Its really good, the teachers are also good. I and my husband had been and impressed with the school, in future it will have a very good name, as it is taken by Pearon. Even they are going to start 11th and 12th Std from next year. I am going on Monday to the school to pay the fees and get the seat blocked.
Goddess: even i am put up in New Thippsandra (Near Market), i think the bus fees is high, so i thought i will check with private bus. ur comments. you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Even they have a very good result in 10th Std. so its good to go school. no second thoughts for this school, i had been to Geetanjali in thippasadra and was not happy with the staff and amenties they have... The lady is so lazy to speak and not ready to give any details.. so was not happy with it. You can go ahead with this school. All the best!
I am also thinking the same. I am staying in Indira Nagar. They said the school transport is has main rd drop. but they can think of if more students are admitted.
If atleast 5 kids are going from Indira Nagar and Thippsandra side then we can book a van for home drop.
Please let us know if any other parents are intrested.
Hi Pranshu, Somu,
I also stay near Indiranagar 80 feet road.. just behind MS Diabetic hospital.... school admin told bus charge as Rs.1080 per month...how much will it be if a private bus is hired??andis it safe??For which class have u joined ur kids??Mine in Nursery or pre-kg...
Is there a short cut way for buses to come from BEML to Indiranagar 80 feet road???...because the autos and buses come via Jeevanbhimanagar since 80 feet road to tippasandra is a one -way route....I mean CMH hospital till Shishya beml is 3.1 kms....but from shishya beml to CMH hospital(via jeevanbhimanagar) is 4.5 kms...coming back takes longer time...
