I have recently shifted to Bangalore near Hulimavu. Our initial enquires makes us feel that  Fee structure here for schools seems to be very high. I am looking for a good school for my son who is 3yrs old.I am looking for school in a long term perspective where he can continue till 10th. One more factor which I am trying to give priority is the distance he needs to travel. Need all your valuable inputs.Thanks in advance.

Hi Gopal,

Sorry I am not replying to your query as I dont know any schools near by your place.

But please do share information about the schools you visited and the fee structure there.

In Hyderabad we have schools from 25k per annum to 1 lakh per annum and above that.

Please check Mitra Academy, AECS Magnolia, BVM Global schools. These are closer to your location.

Hi Gopal,

I have enrolled my kid in The Samhita Academy which is off BG Road and is around 8km from Hulimavu roughly. I stay near Hulimavu as well.

You can check with the Samhita Academy school regarding admission availability, but i would like you to visit the school once. Even we have opted for this school so that the child can continue till 10th .

The other schools on BG Road itself wat i have found are Radcliffe school, Sherwood High, PSBB (next to Samhita).

The fee structure in Samhtia is 25k(admission fee) + 55k PA for UKG. Books , Uniform and Transport cost seperately.  This is for UKG , you can check with the school for nursery .

Hopefully you find a good school for your child soon.

  Hi all,

Let me add my updates here as well. These are for parents of kids seeking admission into Standard 1 for the year 2012. These are for schools in and around Bannerghatta road/ Kanakapura road/ J P nagar.

BGS NPS: Called them on Thursday to check if I can come and drop off the admission forms for standard 1. I was told that all seats are taken. It works on a first-come-first-served basis.

Mirambika New Age: They said currently no openings for Standard 1. We will know by February 2012,in case any vacancies open up.

Brigade J P Nagar: Same as Mirambika. They asked me to check back in March 2012 in case vacancies open up.

Valley School: I have the form and was told to drop off the filled-up application by the end of this month. Selected parents will be called for interaction by December.

Sri Kumaran's Children's Home: Applications for Std 1 open up on December 12th. Completely online procedure. Check their website for details.

PSBB LLA: I e-mailed them. They say admission forms will be available by first week of November.

Ekya school: Forms are available on their website. They can be filled-up and dropped off with a registration fee of 750/-

Other schools on our list include Sherwood High, Podar International School, Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir and Jnana Sweekar Public School.

All updates and reviews on any of the above schools are welcome. Good hunting, everyone :)

As far as i knw, PSBB LLA n Kumarans r really good.


Shyvee 2011-11-11 12:47:51


 We heard mixed reviews about PSBB LLA. Primarily that they are using the Chennai name to promote themselves, but have not really shown any prowess so far in overall performance. Again, these are not my personal views but what I have read on the web.

The thing is it is rather far away, very close to the Bannerghatta zoo, which is why we decided against the school.

Samhita Academy is something I would have really liked to explore, but the distance factor once again came into play.

Guys, I visited Orchid International School, BTM second stage/off bannerghatta road, they are starting school till 5th Std this year, will enhance till 8th next year and till 10th std following year. Building yet to be ready, they are renovating some old building of cloth mill. Their plans are impressive , not sure whether these are just plan or they have good history, any opinion. Admission fees is nominal,annual fees including all is apx 90 K for nursery, any opinions??

Hi Sharadhi,

This is regarding your query for our experience with Samhita Academy.

Personally am very happy with the school , teachers and my kid also enjoys school.

Academically, as you must have been briefed , its CBSE syllabus, following XSEED curriculum. As per my opinion the teaching is  good. The teachers are very good, and they encourage the kids to be interactive in class, clear the doubts, try to engage children in  class topic discussions.

One thing i would like to mention is that, the teachers are not in a hurry to finish off syallbus, They do have proper revision and system in place. So if you try to compare with other ICSE/CBSE schools with same XSEED curriculum you might find that in some cases, they are 1 or 2 chapters behind. But for me, its a positive sign, as basics should be correct and there is no point in finishing off syllabus just for the sake of it.  And they are not in favor of Olympiad exams. They relate to ASSET exams from 3rd std.

And regarding the transport system, safety wise yes, we never faced any problem till date. There is a female attendant, to take care of kids in the bus, and teachers also are present in the bus. But am not sure , if it happens to be the last stop, apart from the female attendant , if any teacher would be present, This you can get it clarified with the transport official.

Overall, I dont have any negative feedback as such for this school. am completely happy with the teachers and so far its very positive (my kid joined the school in 2011) .If distance is not a concern , IMHO you can check this school out for your kids.

Dear Sai ,

I am really impressed by the way you have Described about D School !!! Thanks so much , from the bottom of my heart ! All my querries are answered including the curriculum , say text book wise ! I myself looking for something like this type, where teachers are not in a hurry - burry , pressurizing kids throughout, in the name of completing Portions( for younger / primary classes where the evaluations are not formally done , it should not be any issues !!!) completely agree with your words . 

Can i ask you where you are put up ? you can personally email me: 

Thanks again, for updates !

My daughters are studying in Sherwood High school, BG Road. They have an excellent infrastructure and principal and teachers are outstanding. Academics and co-curriculars are quite balanced. They give priority to kids' safety and security and personal attention to young ones. I am really thankful to the school, my daughters have learn a lot already and they enjoy going to school.
