My son is with Giis Bangalore this is his 5th year, took admissions believing the plan they had and seeing the enthusiasm of the staff. 5 years down, infrastructure still not in place compared to any of the international schools. Also the extra activities that the school offers comes with a price but the child has to miss something else to opt for such extracurricular activities. And the student teacher ratio started of with less than 20 .and every year it has increased and now it's almost 30. And the activities like the eca and CCA are across all sections ,which means if your child has opted cricket. He will get to hold the bat or ball for just few seconds not even minutes and that too if he it she is lucky.. and top of all this our fees have increased more than 90 percentage in the last 4 years. Situation worsened only 2 years back after the new principal came into picture. Everything was going well but sad thiNgs have turned really bad including academics. Very bad way of teaching never heard in any international schools were computer classes have happened in theory and this year the school doesn't even have a book for It. Instead giving black and white printout to students which will not even encourage them to learn and understand the basic concepts... highly disappointed after spending more than 2 lakhs for my 2nd grader.
I guess govt school that I studied was way better than the so called international brand name of GIIS Bangalore.
The school started 5 years back with a good principal but management changed it immediately after 1 year. It seems that principal goes, sets up the school and comes out, this is a strategy followed by management just to attract parents. The current principal is of no use in terms administration, quality of education and for that sake any thing. We the founder parents have already complained in 2015 but no changes. as the leader so as the disciples. Second, the fee structure is completely screwed up. Every year hike is 18 to 25% range with so many slabs, it becomes very difficult for parents with 2 kids. The quality of education is deteorating day by day. There is a protest going on for last 6 months but management is ignorant. I would not give even 2 stars rating to this school.
CBSE affiliated. Overall OK except for very high fees hike every year in last 3 years. School is avoiding meeting with parents to discuss this issue. With this rate it is going to be unaffordable in few years unless you are willing to pay 4-5 lakh per year.
With the name of Gandhi , they are doing many things here. But sadly the fee structure is very high in this school and for collecting money , I am not seeing any Gadhisam .. :-)
We have finalized the admission for my son in Grade 1 ( 2014). The campus is very good with well designed labs, classrooms etc.And the staff was also very polite. The methodology and extra curricular activities also looks very promising. has facilities like Vishwanath Anand Chess Academy, Chandru Borde Cricket Academy, tie up with Edu Sports, online access to Britanica, traditional dance and Music. looks like a very good environment for overall development. I dont have to worry about after school activities for my son.
I took the admission for my daughter for 2nd Standard for Acedemic year 2013-14 which is the first acedemic year of the school in Bangalore. First i came to know about this school when they had one day camp in our building Sobha quartz and just after few days they also kept a desk in my office. After googling, I decided to visit their campus. That time it was under construction and they had their office in a small room but I was impressed with the plan thay had. I finally took the admission and so far experience is very good. They have wonderful infrastructure. They have a well designed library, math lab, computer lab, chess room, tennis room, dance room and i might be missing some more separate rooms. They have a big play ground but still under development. Thay also have the plans for cricket acedemy. Acedemically, they are following CBSE syllabus rigrously. The best part of the school is the activities. Kids are always busy with one or another activity. Wednesday is the assembly day..They also have a well designed web site especially for parents where teachers and parents can interact. We receive regular updates and notifications over email. Transportation is also good. My biggest worry was being the first year of the school in bangalore but they already had a well set pattern which they are following here. I hope this will help.
