We got admission for my daughter for Grade 1 in next academic year.With My knowledge,School's teaching methodology is good.They are following true Montessori method.
You can search some more feedbacks about HIS in this same Parentree site.
After a lot of research and reading on internet, i confirmed Harvest International for my son.We visited Cherubs and Harvest International last Saturday and was very much convinced with their teaching methodology, environment , the Staff and infrastructure.Though Cherubs ishas small campus, they do have lots of activities to engage kids, including dance, music, sand pit,etc.
The campus at HIS is decent in size and covers everything required for a kid at school including big playground ,library, music class , dance class labs,and indoor basket ball, tennis, badminton court.They shift the focus on the studies as the kid grows. Initially they start with 60% acextra curricular and 40% academics. and 8th onwards it is 70% academics and 30% extra curricular. They are affiliated to CBSE and have plans to run IGCSE as they get enough strength for it.
Their Day care facility is till 7 30 pm at cherubs Montessori in HSR. Kids going to HIS can also be dropped at Cherubs's daycare if they avail this option. Principal at HIS was very humble and fair in her conversation. I enrolled my son in M2 at Cherubs for 2014-15 session His seat will be blocked in HIS in grade 1 but we will have to pay the Admission fees again.
I have also got my son admitted to Mont-2 for 2014-15. He will be coming from not montessori background, hence we are still a bit worried.. Though Nethra ma'am suggested mont' style summer camp... Anyways will keep you posted on this. We gt very good vibes for HIS, but due to day care need and undecided residence location :) we have finalised HSR cherubs which i found to be equally good sans the infrastructure...
Lets see how this decision goes :)
