I am just so happy about children's week in A School. Initially, didn't really think that the week will leave such a nice impact. My child is quite finicky about food but first time saw her having a bite of the cookies offered by her friend. I was feeling happy to make snacks for those tiny tots on their favourite food day. Yesterday's parents' performance took me back to my college days and saw my daughter feeling shy to see me dance. But must mention about Today, 'what you want to be' was indeed a unique idea. Little lawyers, scientists, policemen, social workers, doctors, artists really amazed all of us the way they carried themselves. I sincerely thank the school for such an initiative and hope that small note A school has given along with the bunny comes true.

True Rai. It was total fun for me too! How many complaints we had initially!!

Now I'm so happy and so is my child. He was upset that his father could not attend but gave him a full account of what happened during the week!! He enjoyed snack day to the fullest...described to us the variety of snacks he ate.

He was absolutely thrilled to wear a spiderman costume for which I had to rush to the shop and buy. Wish the school had given us more time to arrange these things.

Way to go A School!!!

I am quite satisfied with A School.............it is true that initially there were few issues but that can happen to any school or instituition. I really like the methodology they follow, which is very different and contemporary. Also the way they are involving parents now is very interesting and we are getting to know about lot of new things. I am happy about the progress I see in my child.

Preschool doesn't follow any board but they will probably follow CBSE curriculum from STD I

Thursday was the day for parents.Parents rather mothers( which father will have time for all these???) were asked to perform for the kids.We have a yahoo groups for annanagar A school.A few enthusiastic moms(like all of us !!!) came to gether .We planned to stage "Hansel n Gretel".The funniest thing is I played Gretel !!! With a skirt and a top,an apron on that,colorful hat, two kutti ponytails,shoe and socks !!! Ooops...I looked like a giant kutti girl !!!

We all met jus thrice for practice.The first day was a total flop...When my husband dropped me at school and was takg the car on reverse,the car got stuck in the mushy mud in front of the school...It took us nearly 2 hrs to get the car out ....The show was a sooper hit...The entire school was so...appreciative of all our efforts...

Friday was  fancy dress.But the school had given a topic."What do u want ur child to be in future?"When I asked my daughter she said "Doctor".The second time I asked her, she said "Dancer".Since we were informed jus a day before, din have much time...After lot of brain storming, I went in search of Bharatha natyam costumes for hire...They were too...big for her ...and I din like the the other costumes...I came back home ..made up my mind to dress her up like a Kathak Dancer with available dress n accessories...

When my husband came back home at 10 pm , he said "No Dancer..how will she carry herself for  3 hrs with all that jewels?"Then he suggested tennis player..So we dressed her up with a white tee,mini skirt,cap,socks and shoes,pinned  Sania Mirza's photo on her t shirt,small tennis bat and a ball!!!

Sunday issue of Times of India ( Times of Annanagar) has a writeup of this.A spl mention of my daughter is also made in that!!!

Now I am exicited reading this reviews.  Is this applicable for Velacery also.. I will try for a LKG seat there ..



chiltu 2009-11-18 05:52:13


I have applied for the velachery branch, any news abt their expansions ?


Anzer 2009-11-18 11:37:04


I went to the A school Velachery and did a initial enquiry.

Can the parents who have enrolled give me some thoughts on what attracted you most for the A school  being it  a starter.

Sharing your exp will give me a idea.


thanks in advance

Have anyone of you put your kid in Alwarpet branch of A School? Any review or inputs would be appreciated.


rai 2009-11-19 18:21:41


Chettinad name surely was the first deciding factor to choose A School. Later, when I visited one of the schools and got a chance to talk to the management, I liked the concept. So far it has been a pleasant experience.


rai 2009-11-19 18:24:46



My child goes to Alwarpet branch and I am very happy. Initially I was little confused reading certain feedback on the web as I am not really from Chennai. But later I got to know about Chettinad group and was convinced. Alwarpet branch has lesser strength compared to other schools but they are preparing children very well.


chiltu 2009-11-19 21:15:06



what is the student teacher ratio in A School ?



Anzer 2009-11-20 08:37:31


any positve updates on Velachery branch.. please


shah 2009-11-21 23:50:36


Thanks Rai. I would appreciate if you can give more details about the Alwarpet branch like play space, teachers and the probable area where they will have their bigger campus considering that the current place can't accommodate the school as more standards are added.

Hi Rai and Suchi,

Do your kids belong to Velachery branch?



myname 2009-11-23 22:13:39



I got from the above post that ur kid goes to alwarpet branch.Any idea on the fee structure for next year i.e June 2010...will it remain the same as current yr or will increase...when i contacted the school, they tell that it might increase...no clues...:-(


rai 2009-11-24 17:55:40


Hi myname,

I do not have any clue regarding the future fee structure but what I know is they are already admitting children for 2010 Academic Session. Why don't you enquire through their website for better idea?



rai 2009-11-24 17:58:49


Hi Shah,

Why don't you visit the centre once? They have said that the primary school will come up somewhere 20 min away from the current location. We are still waiting to know about the final location.


shah 2009-11-24 22:59:29


Thanks Rai. Will check it out.
