 Today i brought form from Orchid Internal School at BTM (Bangalore) for my son's admission to UKG in 2014. The fee seemd to be very high. Also, the management stated that the fees would increase every year by 5 to 10%. 

 

Can any one let me know what is the fee structure and how much they  increase every year.

I also visited today, I too have same doubt. Lots of work involved in renovating that old building. Admission fees is nominal but annual fees is roughly 90 K all inclusive for nursery if you are residing in the range 2-4 KM. Plans are impressive . They charged 800 for application and prospectus. Not sure whether these methods are only in presentations or will actually be implemented. 

Pl share opinions. Taj: Did you enroll?

I also visited this Saturday, fees is almost same in all school. Their plans are really impressive. But I am really concerned about the infrastructure, currently only walls and door also I don't see any work going on. They said, it will be completed by Feb'14, but it looks doubtful.

can you please share the fees amount?
my son is in GNS and I pay 52k every year (just tution books, uniform, etc extra)
10% is what they said they will increase every year.
it seems to be the norm.
i told them, my salary does not go up by 10% every year!!!

thank you Taj1.
i dont know why they call themselves international when they teach CBSE.
International schools should be going for IGCSE, else it is cheating parents.
63 for tution fees is quite nominal now a days.
books and uniform is a bit costly for lkg!!
Gopalan International is 92k(all inclusive) just for fees.
Deens Academy is approximately 100k for LKG!!

Hi,
Can you please share your experiences in Orchids?
I am considering it for my child for Nursery admission.
If you could give me complete details that would be of great help.
In general, how is the school, the teaching, the campus etc.

Awaiting your reply.

My experience so far with them is not so good. They sold me application form for 800 bucks and told me that they will call and will send t shirt etc through courier. No news so far. I dont believe that their building will be ready by next session in BTM. The counselors are hardcore sales guys.. what you guys say?

what is the fee structure for Orchids

I had enquired at Orchids, Nagarbhavi a week ago. I received a call back today saying that they will be issuing the applications only till Nov 20th and asked me to collect the forms. The application form is Rs.800 and i don't know why they are charging so much for the application! I called back the school office and was told that since they are receiving lot of enquiries, they are stopping issuing the application forms on 20th Nov. I told them i cannot visit them before 20th to collect the applications and they were happy to keep an form set aside for me to collect later! I think they are just creating a hype. If the child is shortlisted in a better school, parents will definitely not opt for orchids, since they are not established here. So, the strategy is even if they don't get enough admissions at the end, they may collect some money from selling papers..
