Hi, even I called them today and they have asked me to come to school on Monday with kid.
I have collected reviews from other parents and as of now I heard only positive reviews. Checked with parent of kids from 5th grade as well as UKG. Heard that they were arranging personal classes on weekends in case the child can't attend regular class continuously for few days. And from the researches I have done, what I understood is two batches have already completed 10th grade from this school which is a good point. I am not so sure about this.
It will be great if anyone can share more info on WGS.
My child has been studying in Whitefield Global School for the past 3 years . The quality of education provided by them is really very poor .
In order to impress the parents , they have employed a few people at the reception who look good, speak English very fluently and are very efficient. But the children will be taught by teachers , not the front office .
The teachers are incompetent , they themselves dont know the subjects they are teaching . The 3rd grade teachers dont know simple spellings . They are not correcting the copies of the children properly . On the top of that teachers are themselves writing incorrect spellings and sentences in the copies.I sometimes wonder which school have they studied fromâ€¦.
The examination system being followed there is really poor with a great load on children. Apart from the two term end examinations, 4 Formative assessments are being taken which involves preparing 4-5 lessons in each subject. For this, they give the starting and ending dates , and the syllabus, but they do not tell which subject exam is going to be on which day . How can they expect the little children to be mugging up all 6 subjects together .
They have all kinds of extra -curricular activities for name sake like karate, music, dance, yoga, skating . But they do not even bother whether the children are learning it or not. To be frank, my child could not learn a single thing out of these in the past 3 years . But the school doesnt care .
They have school on Saturdays which is also very tiring for the children .
They do not encourage any feedback from parents . They only entertain us during PTM which is held once after 3-4 months . Apart from that you cannot interact with the teachers . The Director Mrs Sharada is an authoritarian , who just speaks her point but is not ready to listen to what parents have to say . She does not want to even listen to any kind of negative feedback.
The parents are not kept informed in time about the events taking place in the school and how they can prepare their kids for taking part. Sometimes , they donâ€™t even give information even about the syllabus of academic competitions happening in school.
There is no encouragement to students in the form of awards/ certificates . Only awards are being given for competitions . But for doing well in the class , in academics / any other behavioral quality there is no certificate/ award.
They are not teaching any sports(cricket, football, tennis etc) to the kids. ( nothing was taught in our case from grade 1-3 ).
Recently they held a drama event in the school and invited all parents for it . Most of the students in school were taking part in this annual event . The arrangements for the stage program were below average . Half of the childrenâ€™s collar mikes were not working, and hence their dialogues were inaudible . The sound system stopped many times and lights went out during some of the events . After making the kids practice for months together for the drama , the kids deserved better .
In class, mostly answers are written on the board , and children are simply copying them . There is no encouragement to creative thinking on part of children . Even Maths answers are being copied from board . They make the kids learn all question-answers at the back of the chapter , but in the Examinations , they will twist and turn the questions to make sure the child doesnâ€™t understand what is being asked . They ask all kinds of tricky and difficult questions in exams , but in the class they will be doing only simple question answers . This is ridiculous.
They ask children to keep all books and copies in class in their respective lockers , but they do not even send the copies home whenever any homework/ test / formative assessments are there . No reminder to children to take books/ copies home in such times. Many times I had to go and pick up the books from the class myself.
They have a library , but the children are not allowed to issue a book and take it home . Do they even know that a child learns a language better by reading more books. There is no emphasis on reading/ creative writing in the class as well. Grammar being covered in the class is insufficient . Not much practice is being given to kids on grammar/ punctuation .
The only thing working properly is their transport .
I would suggest all parents looking for admission for their children, PLEASE DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER WHITEFIELD GLOBAL SCHOOL if you want your child s basic education to be good. Better teach them at home instead of sending them to such a school. I have made a mistake by choosing this school and soon I am going to correct it .
