My daughter studying lkg in sjps.i'm quiet satisfied with the school.as in the other reviews, SJPS is not like that. sjps makes my daughter feel good,happy and she loves to go to school.education wise,sjps gives her more knowledge,practise,activities,fun,good manners,obediency,etc.At first they have problem in managing but they cameout from that in few months.now all are going good.
SJPS new to this area medavakkam,in very short period they provide this much comfort means they can do more in coming years..
kishore kumar sir told about all the inconvenience about school building,transportation,and others , openly to all the parents..no hiden things are there...he told that all will finish in next 3years...
why all are blaming only the school.
parents have to co-operate with the school then only they can provide all the facilities..from the begining they are not canvasing parents to join their kids in SJPS.
even when i put my child in the school,there is no building,construction not started but now its a big school.st john's owning many schools ,they know the difficulties inthat...they will do much more better in coming years....st. john's parents will support them...

As a parent i am quite satisfied with the education there. Ofcourse there is definitely scope for improvement but i do have full faith in them and strongly believe that they will show great progress in the coming years.
We all should accept the fact that
it is a new school and it will have its own limitation in the first year. And we should give them some time.
We all should positively believe it and pray for the school. Afterall it is for the future of our kids.

Yes, we parents know that a new school will start up with few mess up. But the school gave big disappointment. All parents were disappointed on the First day on their Transportation facility, indooroutdoor playground and no compound wall for school. School should understand that safety is First for all parents.
1. Transportation is a basic service which school should have concentrated and planned for home pick & drop. The school roads is very worst and the whole area near to school is swampy. When it was small rain, twice (different days), I saw parents and kid fell down from bike near to the school. They fell in the swampy area near by the big garbage. Kids school uniform, bag,.. everything was in road.
At least, based on safety reason, they should have planned for better transportation. There is no helpdesk for transportation. I am not sure, how the roads will be in peak rainy season.
Number of bus facility should be increased with home drops
2. Parents- Teacher contact session was completely not planned completely.
3. No play grounds for pre kg to UKG . Just before 2 days they provided a small area for elder kids .
4. With any request, if parents speak to sweaty (head miss), they get irresponsible negative answer. She doesn’t hear any of parents request and starts speaking in a negative tone. She speaks as if every slave has to listen to her words or else no other option. Hope she has to learn how to speak softly from KG teachers.
She doesn’t allow us to contact principal for getting a proper response.
5. School doesn’t have any contact number to contact a teachertransportationprincipal.
6. Students Toilet area is very small.
7. Complaint box for studentsparents is missing.

I can not agree more than the earlier reviewer. It is not a school, it is becoming punishment school for the kids (till UKG std). The timing for the kids are 7am to 5:30 pm because of totally mismanaged bus service (I am telling where the distance is hardly 6 KM from school). Mind it prayer time is 9:15 am and school end time is 3:20pm for UKG and 3:00pm for lkg. I know there brand value is quite high so they are also not much more bothered about parents(tied and tired) complain. So think 100 times before going for the admission till UKG.

My feedback is the same as the previous user's review. We felt it was a very big mistake on our end to have admitted our daughter in pre kg in this school.
The teacher to student ratio is so poor, no toys or playareas provided..infact the rooms were empty.
The kids were locked in these rooms right on the 2nd day without their parents. i could see every kid crying very badly..none of the teachers are really trained in handling the pre kg students. There is no warmth when they deal with such small kids.
Any amount of suggestions and inputs given to the management is always responded with a 'we will take care of' response.
What Dr.Kishore kumar said in the school's inauguration and what is actually happening is absolutely opposite. The staff just do not have any experience and there is always chaos in the school environment.
Nothing is planned well..they should have actually opened the school after a year ...absolutely disappointed with the school ..its a mental torture for the kids as well as parents. Do think twice before you admit your ward in this school

With a lot of expectations and imaginations, we admitted our child in this school. There was a lot of hype around the so called "Brand Name" of "St.Johns".
On the first day itself, our hope was hammered. School is still under construction, there is no facility especially for little children to play or relax. They are prisoned in a class room from 8.30am till 4pm. Even if the school is over at 3pm, they have to wait there till 4pm for the school bus to leave. No facility for prekg, lkg, children to sleep during the sleeping period. No indoor games, etc. There is only one teacher for a big strength of 45 students. This is too much. Any teacher cannot handle or concentrate on each of them.
Transport facility is a total mess. For reaching school at 9am, students have to catch the bus at 7am itself at the pickup point in velachery. They will reach school at 8am itself. There is no home pickup / home drop. It is a total cruel approach. Management is not considering parents' request at all.
None of the parents is happy with this school. Anyone who wants to admit your child in this school, please be careful and think ten times.
