Any one have got call for interaction ?
this is not NPS branch . this is a franchise which means different management.
My query was ! Does anyone got call/mail for an interaction ?
And thanks for you information
Cherryv123.. Do you have any first hand review, I would request to share your experience about school for parents who intend to apply for it?
@Fonse : I have done survey ... below said are out comes
1. Education quality is good.
2. Reviews from existing students parents are pretty good.
3. Fee around 1.18lk
4. Books , uniform and transportation saparate.
I am located at Kanakapura road, near KSIT engineering college.
I got a mail from NPS BSK (Uttarahalli-Kengeri main road) about Provisional Admission to LKG. Fees is 1.18 lac excluding uniform transport and books. I am not sure what will be the fees next year onwards and also not sure how the school education system and other extra curriculum activities. Fees is bit high for me.
And also EKYA Kanakapura confirmed the admission for LKG, but they say it is only upto UKG and later I might have to shift to EKYA BTM (as I need only CBSE). Apart from these 2 schools, I had Jnana Sweekar PS, but I dropped it, since they forced me to pay fee in a week and had not much good reviews about it.
I feel now its little late to explore other schools. So I have EKYA Kanakapura and NPS BSK in hand but little confused. Helpful if I get advice.
@vinaylpatil : I have even applied for the following schools.
1. DPS south ( got admission but dropped coz of veybad reviews from close friends)
2. Kumaram ( did not shortlisted for interaction)
3. NPS BSK ( got interaction, indeed I am waiting for this school perticularly)
4. Jnana Swekar (got admission but dropped)
5. RNS international ( got admission but dropped coz of negative review she and princi did not look like motivative)
I have admitted my son at NPS Banashankari
Hello @Cherryv123, good to know that you opted for NPS Banashakari. I have also shortlisted same set of schools for my daughter for LKG and in dilemma. Which class does your son got admitted to? I have received that provisional admission mail as well. What will be the process on the interaction day? Thanks in advance.
Hi @Cherryv123, I hope you have considered all aspects other than NPS brand.
As you might know there are only 4 real NPS in Bangalore and NPS bsk is not one of them .
It is different management who bought NPS name to charge NPS level fees.
Just call hsr nps to confirm
@vinaylpatil, did you admit your child to NPS? What will be the process on interaction day?
Hi, no I dropped it because of high fees and realising reality.. :)
Thank you for your response @vinaylpatil.
My daughter's interaction was done recently for UKG / KG2 . We have received a meeting invite with principal.
Yet to decide as we have similar thoughts as stated by you all above. Research is on .. will let you about the decision.
@vin123 Even i received a invite for the interaction with principal. So much confusion, before i register in this school i thought it comes under same management of nps. Am hoping for the best. Can anyone tell me about the quality of education over there...
@aryan28 and others,
Spoke to two sources and findings below .
Source 1 : Person is closely associated with NPS Franchisee
a. In a franchise model , a third party provides infrastructure and campus while NPS provides curriculum , delivers education and performs audits.
b.Mr Gopalakrishnan/ Chairman's office audits all franchisee processes once in 6 months and provides required direction.
c. NPS Banashankari is about 4 yrs old and has bigger vision to improve this branch in coming years.
d.Management is very good and very committed to provide quality education.
Source 2 : Parent whose son is associated from last 3 years . Lines below are as told by the parent
a. Curriculum is standardized CBSE driven by NPS. No doubt about the quality of education in this branch and they way school prepares the kid academically is really good. Projects given to kids are high standards .. most of the times need parents involvement and help :-)
b.Over all development and extra curricular activities : Dance, art, Karate, music classes, cultural events prepare kid on overall development. Daily/ weekly calendars in this branch provide importance to overall devpt of child.
c. Infrastructure : In the long term, campus is planned to expand more with more facilities . Playground and an auditorium are already in place.
d.Franchisee model has no impact on kids's education - it has to be seen as a partnership model . Ultimately, overall results of the school count.
Hope these two cents help in making informed decision.
@vin123 Thank you so much for the information. Got to know many things from your reply.. Hope everything goes well..
@aryan28 Most welcome.
I spoke to two more sources who provided positive feedback. Below are the lines as told by them.
a. Another parent who is associated from one year - Principal , teachers are highly qualified and experienced. Franchisee management do not interfere in their decisions in anyway. Other parents whom she has met also are very happy with the school.
b. A senior academician (retd. Principal of a school) also provided very good feedback. As per him also, franchisee model has no impact on quality of education. He has heard good reviews about this school from his industry peers.
Hope this will help parents who are skeptical about NPS banashankari.
@vin123 Do you have any idea about DPS South? Am feeling NPS banashankri Fee is too high..school fee only that much that too
excluding all other things.
Has anyone applied for 1 std admissions at NPS BSK? My daughter has given the admission test on 21/1/2017, but am yet to receive a confirmation on selection / admission. Not sure how they intimate parents and I am anxious as this is my first choice for her schooling.
@Aryan, no idea about DPS south.
@ALL : I have admitted my kid in dec for LKG.
I have got admission offer fro DPS south too but withdrawn ., coz of very negative reviews about it for very close friend and relatives.
I would like to get preKG/ Montessori 1 admission for daughter in NPS BSK and she is just 2 years 4 months old, please give me your valuable suggestions on this.
For mont the child has to be 3 years by June 1st in NPS.
Hi girish1102... wanted to know a bit about the admission test for Grade 1. My daughter is in UKG now studying in DPS. Would like to shift her to NPS HSR Layout in Grade 1 next year. If you can tell me about the admission test procedure, and kind of question paper that will of great help. Thank you...
This school is defentatly missing a system for its admission process where the seats are allocated based on the paretns income not based on the childs calliber,and also who ever has contact in the school he can buy the seat easily and written test is just a tool for them so that they can manipulate the childs pencil written papers with their choosen already bought names,this is understood this shool how they had manipulated in 2016and got deaffiliated in 2016 from the CBSE board,it shows how kids will be a great learner from this kind of education institue about all the tricks and tecniques about froging.Also this school claims about the animated swimming pool against the huge sum of fees .so much of head wieght with out any fundamental wieght of the system(education).
This was a diaffliated school in 2016 so imagine the institute is all about money,,momey and money...what values and culture will be taught to god knows
