Recently joined my kid in AECS Magnolia. Want to form a parent's group for AECS Magnolia. So that we can discuss issues (if there are any) and get suggestions from other parent's also.
If any one agrees with me please reply so we can start some group on FB right now they have a group fro teachers and for students only.
Hello-I am planning to admit my kid next year to this school.How did you find the academics and extra curricular activities in the school?
As i have mentioned in my previous post, I have joined my kid recently and his academic session will start in June so can't tell much. But i have seen reviews and spoke to few kids and they mentioned school is good.
All the Best.
Hi I'm Pavithra v.be joined our kid for pre kg .. .I.m lookin for private vehicle for pick n drop.if anyone sending their kid by private vehicle plz share me the driver number
Hi Pavithra ,
I too joined my kid for LKG. May i know which area you are residing in, I stay nearer to Ranka colony, BTM IInd stage. If you are residing in near- by area we can look for transport together.
We stay near sarakki market - J P Nagar 1st phase. It will be useful if u can share with me if u have any contact details of any private transport. The cost of the school bus is extremely high.
Can you please share the fees structure and the admission procedure?
35K as admission fees. 41k as tution fees and 16 k as transportation (which i didn't take). You can check Samitha Academy heard fees is 70k excluding transportation. I have seen good reviews for the school.
Sorry for the delayed reply. I didn't engage any private transport till now as i couldn't find any other kid in this locality. So i am going to drop and pick up my kid on my own for the time being. If i find some one else to share than we will see.
Thank you for the details.
Samhita will be too far as we r put up @ BTM 2nd stage.
Its really a nice school, My son in 7th std and daughter UKG..Teachers are taking much care and attention
I am looking for my daughters admission in 1st standard. Shifted from Delhi to Bangalore..
Please suggest how is this school compared to other Bannergatta schools like heritage, PSBB, presidency, Sherwood as only these schools I am getting admission.
I am looking for my son's admission for 2015-2016 for nursery, please guide me when the application/admission process is starting here in AECS?
I have admitted my kids in May
I feel, Admission fee is quit low compare to others also attentive staff during admission and also after admission..You can go through other school fee status also.
Yes that's true there admission fees is low compared to others..thats point of attraction. General feedback is that they are working hard to improve their brand value...
PSBB I have inquired they have increased their fees last year. due to their name (as its a chennai based school so high reputation), I didn't put my kid their because of fees, distance from my place and most importantly they were taking my son only for Nursery although he should go for LKG so his one year will get wasted. for higher standards they say if some one takes TC and if some seat is vacant they will give preference for chennai based people and for siblings.
I kept on inquiring with them till Feb than i dropped it. Presidency not so good didn't inquire by myself but feedback from Teachers and Parents. other schools i have no idea. One more small school which you might have not heard is there that is Guru Darshan Public school. gottigere,BG its a Mangalore based school. Fees is on lower end 40-45 K per year and i guess no admission fees or very minimal . only problem with that was i didn't see proper playing area, Bus parking and playing area for the kids is shared. that means driver and all have easy access for the school. only for this reason i dropped that school.
Hope its helpful for you.
No standard process like interview and all. Go and inquire around September or may be this month itself. May be on phone if seat is available and if you are satisfied with the school pay the fees. if you are good in bargain do negotiate for admission fees i didn't do but others did it.
Thanks & Regards
I have also put my daughter in 1st standard, just want to know about school transport..however I am living close by in LnT..
How is the school transport..
@makhan school transport is outsourcing..but very good..they have permanent 1 teacher and 1 AAya in the bus and without smart card (provided by school) they don't allow to pick the child..
Very good idea. Possibly can some one create a group and post it so that we can join.
I had visited this school few days back, i felt it is a little cramped place..
Dont you think so? They dont have big playground right?
Yes it is smaller if you compare it with other schools like sherwood ,ryan,PSBB. They do have separate playing area for kindergarten kids and the one which you might have seen (nearer to entrance) is for 1-12 students.
But i was fine with it as i don't want my kid to travel for 20 kms daily (up-down). for this school itself timing will be 8:30 to 3:30 and if kids need to travel for such a long distance they will reach by around 4:30 to 5:30.
Thanks & regards
Hmm, yeah, even i agree with you.
I also spoke to the director, and asked her, as to why the building looked so old..To which, she said, very soon, they will be painting the school...
First of all "Hello" to all the members of "AECS Magnolia Maaruti Public School - Bangalore Parents group"
. For long time i was thinking to google for a forum where the parents can discuss about their childs school, activity, celebarions, intellectual, communication, involvement and build passions in them. Finally i got landed here and without any further thought i registered myself today. My warm wishes to the founder of this (per my knowledge) pragyasai
and first member - krpavithra
. Hope this forum will grow bigger with lots of fun around and healthier conversation in future. Hopefully evrybody will actively participate and contribute the best possible. Best wishes to all the members once again.
I read the below update, in another group, copy pasting it here for all of us to be in sync:
today we went to enquire about pre-kg admission 2015 for my sone. we were given a enquiry form which has some basic info to be filled. my son will be 2.10 yrs by jun 1 2015, which they have asked in the form. after submitting the filled form we were asked to wait for interaction with principal. after waiting for 20 mins or so, we got call to meet. she was humble and spoke to us in hindi (we mentioned that our mother tongue is hindi). she has shown us the each individual part of the school in the monitor which was getting displayed on two big monitors right in front of her seat. the classes, labs, libraries etc are good, and the school is completely covered by cctvs. and later she explained fee structure 45k -one time, 41010 per year(books, uniform, transport etc, i don't have details about them). she told that already 60 seats are booked and another 60 are available and is first-come-first-serve basis(total 4 sections). and then asked me if i have any queries. i asked about the affiliation expiry(as per cbse site, their affiliation expired in 31-3-2014). she answered that the inspection of the school has been done and the website need to be updated. they have applied for another 3 year term affiliation. later spoke to some of the parents who are there to pick their kids, and they are satisfied with the school.
as a parent i know how much we struggle to find out the right school for our kids, so i am sharing this info which can be helpful for anyone who are in need. let me know if you guys have any queries, will try to answer if i have the info.
Did you find any private transport?
Thanks for sharing this information. Yes indeed will be helpfull to info seekers. I too had similar experiance with school. Moreover i was completely unaware about affiliation expiry at the time of admission. By the way my son is in LKG now and definately i could find good progress in him. Unfortunately from recent days he's frequently getting cold & cough. Hence taking off and missed some activities too. About his health when consulted our doctor told it's because of dust, where as most of time he's inside the flat and not going out of apartment. Am quite worried about his health and just curious to know are there any construction work going in the school premises which might have caused him to suffer. Please let me know, by the way am unable to attend the session on friday (phonics) and hope will attend parents meeting on saturday.
I visited the school say 3months back or so.
I can faintly remember, that there was some construction going on.
We are planning to join my kid in this school for 2015-2016 academic. we already enquired and we are ok with the school, but we observed that there is a garment factory besides the school and bad smell coming from it. Because of this kids might get allergies (getting frequent cough & cold as raised by Laxmikanth G) ?
Please suggest who already joined their kids.
Thanks in advance!
Am looking for admission of my kids in Std III and VII next academic year, howz the school? in terms of studies and discipline?
We had been to the school today, and checked for the admission, they said, out of 120 seats, close to 80 seats are filled for nursery.
We also asked them about the garment factory that is adjacent to it, to which they said, it is absolutely safe, and CBSE affiliation is given only when, certain conditions are met, so we can be rest assured.
We also told them that the affiliation is expired n have they renewed it, to which they showed us the renewed certificate. It is now renewed until 2019 or so..
Thank you so much Prabarch02
:). Unfortunately i have been to school and couldn't go thru because me running out of time with long week end. I am planned to visit during diwali holiday but gifted me time by sharing the information.
