My daughter got accepted for Sophias Nursery too! Received the letter today.
She is also accepted at NPS Rajajinagar. Real hard for me to decide between the schools now. NPS is LKG admit and Sophias is Nursery, so she'll be losing a year at Sophias compared to NPS Rajajinagar. NPS Rajajinagar is lot closer from my home (5 km) compared to Sophias (Sophias is nearly 10km from my home). And then the CBSE vs ICSE debate.
Any advice from parents greatly appreciated.
yes, I have 2 daughters, and the elder is in sophia too.
I feel NPS is good because it's for LKG n CBSE
Hi pooja and Arun pls reply the fee structure in shopia high school for this year u r asked to pay
arunkmathew, can u tell me how s the transportation handled in Sophia. I have seen there is no parking in that area. so how do y manage to drop kids? and how reliable are the van services if u r availing one?
Hi arrika pls tell me wat is the fee structure u r asked to pay
Received the letter & my daughter is selected. Please guide me on the next steps to think about.
@21yashu its 96k plus 1100 for account opening
21yashu I was aksed to Pay 97300/- and 1100 for bank account.
What I would like to understand is... that almost 1L of fees they have asked is just initial fees or every year it will be same... some one said from next year fees would be 50K around. Any idea... what will be fee structure from next year.
Thank u so much for the reply Pooja
Hi everyone congratulations for securing a seat in Sophia high school ,unfortunately my daughter didn't secure a seat feeling very bad ,pls guide if there is any way out to get a seat
Annual fee is very reasonable as compared to the other schools. for prep/junior1, it was 41K last year and we had the flexibility to pay in 3 installments. for the higher classes it was slightly more. you also have to pay for stationary/books/uniform/shoes.
arunkmathew how is the transportation facility in Sophia. how do parents usually manage to drop and pick up kids cos there is no parking available at all
Hi @arunkmathew - I have heard the class size for lower classes starting Nursery is really high - like 60 kids in one class and just 1 teacher! And also heard that the upper classes have large number of sections (A to J or more). Is that true? Appreciate your response.
@aarika, they use bmtc buses for school transportation so the facility is available from 2nd standard( or 1st, dont know exactly) on. for the initial few years, you will have to take care of the pickup/drop or rely on the private transport (lot of kids come by private transport). No issue with parking in front of the school to pickup/drop your kid but during other times police wont allow to park the car for longer time.
@dad1980, for nursery, each class has about 50 students, apart from the class teacher there is also an assistant from what I know. Teachers are paying attention to each student (had seen all the class work/assignments/activies completed by my elder daugher) so I'm happy with the school. Not sure about the higher classes.
@arunmathew In the letter we received, they asked to bring the original & two sets of xerox copies of the residence address and a bank Demand Draft. Should we make this DD in advance & take it to school? or Should this be done there in School's Bank branch on the same day? Please advise. Thanks.
@ ImJay, yes you need to get the DD in advance (in the name of your child) and submit it on the day of admission. if you dont do it, they dont proceed with the admission until you get it done.
Any Idea when will be the first day of school... will it be 5th June or 12 June ??
Has any whatsapp group been formed for this year's admits into Sophia's?
I believe last year they created a group Saphires2016 by parents who got admission for their child.
Sister indicated that school opening date would be around 15th June.
But she said that separate letter would be posted with additional information, including which Batch, etc.
we can definitely form one group.
Are you done with admission ??
