I am not too aware of NPS.

thanks in advance

NPS is quite a prestigious school in Bangalore and often discussed school here too.

When I checked with NPS Indiranagar yesterday, the lady mentioned NPS Yelahanka was a new branch. They had already put up a list of students admitted by today. :-/

Wow, that was quick. Do you have any idea of the school fees for Std 1 and KG

Hi Jabberwocky,

You meant to say NPS Indira nagar student list is out?

 

 


jabberwocky 2013-02-14 12:05:32

 

@svks, I don't know if Indiranagar list is out. I meant the Yelahanka list was out.

@virgocouple - The tuition fees is 66k + 15k for Admission etc with the usual annual increase of NPS.

It is one of the reputed schools in bangalore.  Getting admission here is very tuff. Location of the school is good. Staffs are kind enough to answer all the queries. we had very good experience.

I had applied for my sons and they got the admission for LKG in NPS Yelahanka.

@ all

Any one has thought about the infrastructure? They say the campus is 1.5 acres. But I guess it is manatory to have atleast 2acres for CBSE approval. Have they already got CBSE approval?

@ManuY, kindly note CBSE new land requirement has cahnged last year:

Sud,

CBSE reduces minimum land requirement norm for new schoolsBy : Singh 

 

 

CBSEThe Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to relax the minimum land requirement norms for building new institutions in cities.
While amending its affiliation and examination Bye-Laws, the Board decided to lower the minimum land required for extending affiliations to schools from the current 2 acres to 1 acre in cities having population more than 15 lakhs.
The Board decided to amend its minimum land requirement norm in the last meeting of its governing body. Many stakeholders were demanding the board to reduce the minimum land requirement for new schools affiliated to CBSE in cities. The sources from CBSE revealed that the stakeholders quoted unavailability of big plots of land for opening schools is a major challenge.
As per the Affiliation and Examination Bye-Laws earlier, schools with 1 acre of land could get affiliation only in cities having population more than 25 lakhs.
The Board has also decided to give provisional and regular affiliation to schools in cases of late application with a late fee of Rs 10,000 a month. If the Board rejects any school application then only 90% of the fee would be refunded.

Hi Preethi,

Congratulations on getting admissions for your sons.

Do they tell you about the admission status right after the interaction process?

TIA, Ramaa

 Hello! I went to the school yesterday. The campus seemed to be relatively small. It took lot of efforts to get some real information out. I was wondering if they would be able to mintain quality as there re putting at least 3 campuses this year alone (Banshankari, Yeshwantpur, Yelhanka). Where are good teachers? I have heard that during admission (or the start) they put some old teachers from other campuses & later move them out & leave the center to new inexperienced teachers. Is it true? Exploring some other schools in this area.

It is usually difficult to get much info from NPS. In their HSR school too, they had some teachers from Indiranagar and Koramangala. But they continued to be there even after the school started when my daughter would study there till we moved. The design of their Yelahanka school is like HSR school with a basement for activities rooms. 

Any idea about preference for former students? Their website mentions alumni. But my daughter wrote the test on Saturday though she was in HSR school two years back.

As this is a new branch, I saw every parent rethinking to get thier kids join here.  NPS is a well reputed and every one know this.  But can they get the teachers at this stage.  As far as Yelahanka school is concerned I think still they did not finalise the Main Principal itself, but don't know why?  Any one has the idea how these new schools (ypr, ynk) will be seen.  My only concern is that it should not be a purely business purpose using their existing brand name though the money can demanded for the betterment of education.

 

jabberwocky 2013-02-18 13:26:55

 

Usually they put a senior Vice Principal from one NPS school to take over as the Principal of the new school every time.

I think we parents have to be concerned with the kind of teachers the new schools can get - especially at the nursery and primary levels. With their brand name, we can hope they will get good teachers.

 

cnugtl 2013-02-18 15:18:10

 

@blrpnt I am not spreading any information..Its only a concern.  Please do not interpret concerns with flase informations.  Every parent is concerned about their kids education and parents are suppose to do good some homework to select the school.  This very school has started with Nalanda-NPS (initial web page said with the support of NPS) and later it is NPS-Yelahanka.  I am really happy that a very good school like NPS is opening branches and providing a good education around the city rather than concentrating at one or two places... But asking/discussing concerns should not be opposed.

 

blrpnt 2013-02-18 16:31:01

 

 Concern should be based on something concrete. Maybe if you heard someone give an instance, or you read something, then you should raise a concern. Otherwise, all you do is just throw some crap in the air without any substance. You will add value only if you share some information you know, not by feeding others insecurities by raising doubts for which you have no basis. 

No dispute about parents doing homework to select school etc.

 

RamaaW 2013-02-18 17:55:26

 

The staff was quite transparent about the transition to NPS, Yelahanka when we enquired. No concerns there. As cnugtl put it, as a parent all of us are happy if good schools open in our neighborhood.

Considering NPS has no trouble getting students, I think they would have little trouble attracting good teachers.

@blrpnt

The response I got from NPS RNR is that YNT and YPR NPSs are franchaisee schools. Till then I I was thinking franchaisee model works only in business:-)

 

 

cnugtl 2013-02-19 10:00:54

 

Any one have further information on ManuY posting which he got it from NPS RNR.  Are these schools YNT, YPR and Banashankari NPS are Franchiese or direct branch of NPS? 

 

tsonus 2013-02-19 15:30:19

 

Hi all. Have u got any idea why still nps ypr is working under the name of  Purnaa Trust. I raised concerns about the same with principal of ypr. She told us that they got NOC only  2 weeks back. I also came to know that the chariman of core NPS-rnr  is one of Board of Directors for YPR. what does it mean whether franchise or  branch Still not clear. 

 


ManuY 2013-02-19 15:43:47

 

@tsonus

NoC from whom? If it is a branch of NPS,  why do they need to issue NOC to themself?

 

 

ArunaMom 2013-02-19 17:46:33

 

Tsonus: In the Yelahanka branch, we made out the cheque to National Public School, Yelahanka. 

 

Sudpav 2013-02-20 08:41:22

 

hello all

today  NPS has posted an add in times ascent calling Teachers for NPS RNR,INR,KORA,And HSR,

 

 

ManuY 2013-02-20 10:02:10

 

@all

That substantiates the "doubt" that nps YPR,YNK and BSK are franchaisees. With this I infer the following

"NPS does not intend to share their staff pool  with franchisees. These franchisees are hiring on their own!!"

@blrpnt

Do you still think it is "some crap in the air without any substance"? :-)

 

jabberwocky 2013-02-20 11:57:22

 

It is also possible they have moved some teachers and are hiring to replace those that have been moved to the new schools.

 

blrpnt 2013-02-20 13:14:35

 

 Anything is possible or probable. Doesnt mean any of it is true. As I said, if you know something, say it. Otherwise everything is mere speculation. There is a school called BGS NPS. Just because it has the name NPS, doesnt mean it belongs to the same family. In fact, it does not. 

 

psri 2013-02-20 16:36:11

 

Do u know anything abt NPS banshankari branch??
