hi kundhavi ,

as a pondicherry resident i will suggest you adhitiya vidyaashram is the standard cbse school

probably in jan appln will be issued

the only pbm is it's situated a little far ie outskirts of pondicherry  but school provides buses  that runs all over pondicherry

hope this would be useful for you

mahatma gandhi school in thavallakuppam -new school opened last year only

achariya has spreaded its branches in more than 3 places -its also a good school as a matric board teachers there in icse syllabus are good i heard very caring 

primrose school u cant admission as we like coz no admission except prekg that too only 2011 is vacant coz i went in person to get a seat in that school for my son

adhitiya has 1 branch apart from main school which is in poraiyur

lunch provided in school and staff are interactive with kids

fees vise achariya and adhitiya have no big difference

 

the study is not an cbse but icse standard which is in ecr road if u need cbse then this school is not so

you can also ask foing in person to the school

thanks

Hi Sandhana,

 Thanx for your information.we first thought about abt Adithya vidyasharam bt we had to reject it  jus becoz of the distance.for now my choice is Kendriya vidhayala no 1 & 2   or The Study school.how about these two?

 

 

kundhavi 2009-12-06 22:07:08

 

Can i  have the proper adress of Adithya vidyasharam.may be i can reconsider it.i would like to go in person and enqiure in the school or do know anybody studying there.Does the school has up till 12th standard? kundhavi.

 


kundhavi 2009-12-06 22:23:12

 

Hi Grisha,

Even im in the same position of selecting good cbse schools.my choices r  Adithya vidhyasharam, the study school, kendriya vidyala.im looking for a school which has till 12th standard.

in KV (kendriya vidyalaya) Hindi is very difficult fo the children to cope up.other subjects are normal.

In Mahatma gandhi hope all the aspects are fine except for the fees.it comes around to  50 -60 thousand per year.

In The Study, good standard i believe.swimming, horse riding,activities sheets n some more are there.it has till 8 th satndard for now, might increase the classes in future.fees structure comes to 30 thousand per year.

About Adithya vidhyasharam, im yet to enqiure..

kindly let me know if u have any other idea.

regards,

kundhavi.

 

 

Girisha 2009-12-08 20:29:05

 

Thanks Sanhana & kundhavi for the feedback.

Kundavi , Iam looking at CBSE schools only...U r right on Adithya..distance is one concern......Acharya , Mahatma are the other two schools Iam looking at....KV Iam not sure about the present standard....Need to check if any other good CBSE school (close access is important) is available in close proximity.....The study I understand is ISCE Syll  & hence not in my present scrutiny....Thanks , Giri

 

kundhavi 2009-12-10 22:08:46

 

Hi Girisha,

 Please note : Achariya  is far inside villiyanoor  And  NOT Adthiya.

You have Adithya inside Pondy but no idea about the standard or classes.short listing the choices will help us instead of getting confused.

Mahatma Gandhi school is towards the way to Cuddalore.its following the syllabus of DAV,chennai.the fee structure comes to nearly 50 thousand per year but u get everything under single roof.

Since KV & the Study are out from your choices keep them aside for now and decide with the above three. later select the best among all.

if you happen to know any other good cbse schools apart from these,kindly let me know.

Thanx & regards,kundhavi.

 

kundhavi 2009-12-10 22:16:50

 

Hi Sandanaa,

Thanx for your information.

i require even more information about Adithiya  vidhyashram.Address or standard or website.

what is your idea about Kendriya vidyalaya? is the standard good now?

Im really sorry if im a trouble.Since schooling is childrens' future im very much concerned about good schools for my son.

regards,kundhavi.

 

 

sandana 2009-12-11 09:46:08

 

hi  kundavi

adhtiya has 2 brances one in saram whic has just kg and till 5th i guess so

the one near poraiyur is main school

Kendriya vidyala 1 in jipmer campus and the other in kv2 in kalapet these two kv is really gud in pondicherry always known for its cbse stds

but the thing is u have to get

achariya inside villanur is not cbse board

achariya near uppalam has cbse and icse standard

so dont confuse with it

leaving everything behind and if u get KV 1 or KV2 u can close ur eyes and put ur son if u reside in heart of the city no schools is much far and every school has its commutation of its own so in pondicherry dont worry about distance

it will be matter of a day if u come over to pondicherry one day and get info of all schools in pondicherry if ur planning in that case i can send u the address of these schools exactly

ok

now coming to my side my son doing lkg in petite seminaire

i am shiffting to chennai do u have any idea which school admit for UKg

i am looking for dav adambakkam and vellacherry and some other cbse std school in and around  vellacherry

pls do the needful if possible

thanks

Hi Sandanaa,

                        Thank you very much.

my mother in laws place is there in cuddalore so i very often come there.regarding schools in pondy, i already visited KV 1 bt that was a holiday so i cudnt meet anybody.as u said getting the admission is a bit difficult. we have to move through Mp's recommendation or so. if i don get in kv, then i have to look for the next school. so my next choice of school shud be ready.for that, im like ...? but anyway,Thank u for giving me a guidance.if u can give the poraiyur adress it,wud be helpful.

For you, here in Chennai, my son's school is Pon Vidyashram(CBSE) in Valasaravakam.its really nice bt parents has to prepare charts very often.

  1. They have projectors in the classes which i havent heard in any other schools.each class holds one.
  2. they have parents meeting once in a month.
  3. they allow u to observe the class once in a year,its called observation class where u can sit behind the class and observe the whole days classes.
  4. All kinds of extra curicular is there in the school itself,u can take after the school hours.
  5. yoga,veda,indian music,western music games all these come along in their everyday timetable.that is each day one class.
  6. they have their branches in velachery too.

not that my son is studying there im in all praise for this school. its really nice.

Other than that I know, Jawahar vidyalaya (cbse)in ashok nagar.my sisters son is studying there.thats also a nice school.its totally into academics.guaranteed marks in public exams.not much effort for the parents.they make the children learn in the school itself.in extra curicular,u cant expect much.

Dav is always known for its standard.i don know whether dav is there in velachery. 'll try to get more regarding this.

regards,kundhavi.

 

 

kundhavi 2009-12-13 21:27:07

 

Sandanaa,

pls try for the achariya's address in uppalam too. if its even a little difficult,jus ignore it.

but please tell me what shall opt next to KV 1 or 2 ?

regards,kundhavi.

Hi Ske,

I believe its easy to get an admission there.the school was started in 2000 and its going now well.im not sure abt the board whether its CBSE or ICSE. you can visit the following link and get the contact details.

http://www.indiastudychannel.com/schools/9279-Petit-seminaire-higher-secondary-school.aspx

apart from that,the school has good academic standard.school van is there to pick up from any where within pondy.extra curicular like swimming,horse riding n others are there after school hours.(should be separately paid)

karate & singing comes in daily timetable.parents meeting is conducted.they give the teacher's phone numbers, u can call them for any doubts.

subjects are english,maths,science (EVS),tamil,hindi,computer.this is for 3 rd standard. i dont knw abt other classes.

fees structure will be intially around 30 thousand for joining.later every term rs.5400. four or five such terms per year.

regards,

kundhavi.

Hi Kundhavi,

I am from Kerala going to settle down in Pondicherry. My husband and others advising me to join my son in Mahatma Gandhi International School (IV Std). Since you are near to that place I need your advice regarding school Environment, Educational Standard, Safety etc. We are arriving Pondicherry next month.

I hope your quick advice may give me strength to decide on his admission.

Thanks in advance

Seethal

 


kundhavi 2010-02-10 23:39:40

 

Hi Seethal,

As far as i know im giving u these informations.

  1. The school's environment is really good,spacious and properly ventilated.
  2. Educational standard- good english,they develop the capacity to write on own.
  3. music,dance,yoga,games comes along the regular daily timetable.
  4. they celebrate all the festivals in the school asking u to bring the needful from home.
  5. if its Onam, they may ask u to bring flowers & rangoli from home.
  6. Principal is very strict.
  7. school vans run  in & around pondicherry.school begins by 8.30 am.
  8. its situated a lil interior from the main road inbetween cuddalore and thavalakuppam.its actually on the way towards cuddalore.
  9. fees structure comes to 50 - 60 thousand per year.
  10. only 10- 15 children in each class.
  11. since the school was started recenlty and the fees is high, it doesnt possess that much of members.
  12. entrance exams are going on now.13 th of feb is one such exam.
  13. art works are all done in the school.parents meeting is conducted for every term exam.

This is about another school in "The study " in pondy.

this on the other end of pondicherry.it is DR.cheriyan's school.

The school was started in 2000 and its going now well.im not sure abt the board whether its CBSE or ICSE. you can visit the following link and get the contact details.

http://www.indiastudychannel.com/schools/9279-Petit-seminaire-higher-secondary-school.aspx

apart from that,the school has good academic standard.school van is there to pick up from any where within pondy.extra curicular like swimming,horse riding n others are there after school hours.(should be separately paid)

karate & singing comes in daily timetable.parents meeting is conducted.they give the teacher's phone numbers, u can call them for any doubts.

subjects are english,maths,science (EVS),tamil,hindi,computer.this is for 3 rd standard. i dont knw abt other classes.

fees structure will be intially around 30 thousand for joining.later every term rs.5400. four or five such terms per year.

 

These two schools r good in pondy.both r situated on two extremes.if u come here, go visit the schools and then u decide.

luck be yours

regards,

kundhavi.

 

Seethal 2010-02-11 11:41:02

 

Dear Kundhavi,

Thank you very much for your valuable suggestion and time.

Let me talk to my husband and decide.

Are you going for entrance exam on 13th?

One more question, what stops you (regarding of school) to admit your son in MGIS?

Once again I thank you for your wonderful job. Hope your information will helpful for others.

Regards,

Seethal.

 

 

kundhavi 2010-02-15 23:01:50

 

Hi,

Always welcome ..

I have decided to continue in Chennai.so i've stopped my search for schools in pondy.

My friend's daughter has attempted the entrance and she has gone thro.

heard that some 5 children wrote the test,others were asked to redo the exam.

regards,

kundhavi.

 

 

 

Seethal 2010-02-16 18:24:38

 

 Hi Kundhavi,

You are correct. Yesterday we sent our neighbour from Pondicherry to that school for enquiry.

She told us only one student got passed out of 4. Also she added that girl is very cute and intelligent.

We are going there end of this month. Hope we may admit my son either in KV or MGIS.

Regards,

Seethal

Hi,

Thats nice to hear...Good luck.

Sranj 2010-08-14 15:35:41

 

 Kundhavi,

I did this same research 4 years back and zeroed in "The Study"

My son is in 4th standard now and very much proud about the decision we made then.

It is CBSE syllabus and yes, the extracurricular activities, the teacher student ratio, and the parent teacher interaction.. I can go on and on about the school.

You can contact the principal Ms. Alice for more details.  Here are the contact numbers - 0413-2655355, 2655354, 2655353

All the best!

Hi Sranj,

That is nice to hear.

I am really surprised to know that  there is no info regarding "The Study"school in the internet .

Could u please tell me that upto which grade are they teaching now?what are the option do they have for second language?.Are they really teaching the kids swimming,horse back riding,etc? is there any website I can look into about their school.

Thanks for your time,I really appreciate it.

Vista.

rgs,

vidya

 

Sranj 2011-03-16 10:59:12

 

Vista,

They had a website... I just checked it.. looks like some error there.  Will check with the school..

www.thestudy.co.in/

http://thestudy.co.in/contact_cont.htm

.. and yes, they do have swimming, yoga, karatte, art&craft, music, western dance, tennis, badminton, horse riding, football etc.

Swimming, music, art&craft, western dance etc is within their regular curriculum.  One class per week.

They have optional extracurricular activity time too, which the kid and the parent can chose in the beginning of the year, any three from the above list.. and they have these classes for one hour after school hours.

The school has a big aquarium, birds and some rabbits, play area, and a very clean, well maintained and hygeinic school ground, garden, and lawn.  a Very big parking space.

The kids are not spoonfed..! but rather make the kid understand the subject and learn beyond the textbooks.  The best thing I like here is that every teacher has their kids information and his/her progress in their fingertips, are reachable anytime and are receptive about it.  When the academic year begins every parent will be provided with the class teacher's phone number.

 

 Former member 2011-07-06 09:15:58

 

The web address for The Study is different now.

http://www.lecoleinternationale.com/

They  had  yoga, karatte etc.. last year. As they have increased the school strength these activities are no more in there curriculum. The classrooms are now crowded with 36-40 students and more number of sections.They give Ncert books for hindi but they don't teach what they give.

They do give phone numbers but most off the teachers don't take your calls and there is no PTA meetings where you can meet the princapal of the school or ask for any explainations.

The school vans are too crowded and kids travel in unsafe conditions.

The school is not as adv-ised or as befor.

It was good  but  standards are coming down as they have establised.
