Do u have any idea about the WAITING TIME to get the application form.


Rajivvk 2013-12-04 13:16:38


Last year they issued the application form in Feb.
I reach morning 6 and there was about 200+ people ahead of me standing outside the gate in a row.
The length of the queue was till the BP petrol station.
Office open around 9:30 and by 11:00 when I was just 50 people behind--> A notice came that PreKG-UKG-LKG seats over.
Application fees was Rs500/- 
And i heard that the admission fee was  Rs 75K and need to pay in 5 days time after admission.
So I skipped and continue my son with MAV.

I cant believe this.Why are they doing like this.Why dont they have a website with an option to download the application form......
They are making us go mad.
The problem is how we stand there for the whole night .Its ridiculous.......

Our second option is Mav Vidyasharam.
What is your feedback about the school?
I  have heard much negative feedbacks about MAV.

Info from Parents like  you are very useful to us.Thanks.

BOAZ does this because , if you grab the application form admission is confirm for pre-kg by 99.9% , LKG by 98% , UKG by 95%.
Yes they do over sell application forms for these classes by 25% and they are put in waiting list. This is done because on the day of admission ( 5 day buffer) you need to pay the full year fee of over 65K, so many parents might think twice and drop , so the 25% waiting list get a chance.
If application forms are put online then how to charge for the same? 
But all these are initial difficulties, once admitted , things are quite OK with BOAZ. Atleast there is a web portal where they inform what they teach , also they follow a fixed Educorp pattern and not that teachers teach the way they like.

Coming to MAV:-  A school in the state of transformation ( like BOAZ 6 years back) 
If i mark score from 1 to 10 with 1 as worst and 10 being the best here it goes.

School hrs for LKG & UKG - Too long 9.00am to 3.00pm. ( kids get irritated and bored and make a mess the next day they think of school)

Homework =4( Kids over loaded, they are asked to do activities which is not to their age). It is like checking the skill of parents and not the kids. Subject level home work varies from class teacher to class teacher. They hold back all the books and study materials in the school and seldom we get informed what is taught in class. One fine day they dump all the books and we parents end up in surprise preparing for class test and exams. NO FUN LEARNING AT ALL , ALL ROUND FORCED LEARNING. 

Discpline=3 ( no regular assembly, morning prayer, evening prayer); 

Extracurricular Activities= 8 ( Swimming, yoga, - for Prekg and LKG) ( Karata, skating  and dance for UKG), But all kids are not physically ready to take up these kind of activities and many end up in damaging the health at very young age. Just imagine a 3 year old kid in a swimming pool with no serious attention. a 4 year kid on a wheels and yes cases of fallign and bone facture are silently reported.

Others :- Bi-Anually field trips, camp fire, festival celebration, class room movie, annual day celebration all there but very poorly organized. School should demonstrate good examples of event organization and punctuality skills , which is really not visible.

Teaching materials=2( they try to save cost by giving Photocopies of text book pages for daily revision and practice); 

General Safety in the school premesis = 8; Health Safety=5(stray docs roam around in the campus and event of skin diseases reported); 

Safety of mischief young ones to others = 7,  . 

Quality of Standard study materials = 5 , 

Communication=4 (Teachers hardly speak English fluently, Medium of instruction on paper is English , but Tamil is what spoken to kids and kids talk to each other in tamil, We will feel like home and not like english medium school.    

Parents are not allowed inside the school campus, but can wait outside to share and discuss with teachers after hrs.

Mainly if we complain about any teacher then that is the end of the game, since then your kid will be the worst kid in the school, every day they say your kid did that , your kid did this and also the kids get really bully by the teachers.

This is all what I experience for the past 2 years. The growth of school is very slow. Fee is like 35K to 45k paid in 4 terms. Still pending for an CBSE affiliation.

@all, I received a message from Boaz that the application form will be issued only for siblings on 13th and 16th of Dec. Hope the application for the others will be issued later. I will try to inquire in the school and update abt this.

Rajivvk 2013-12-17 13:56:56


I enquired and the staff confirm that it is on Saturday 1st Feb 2014.

srisam123 2013-12-17 16:52:21


Yep i got the same answer 1st Feb.. But its important to check once in a while....

Rajivvk 2013-12-18 09:00:09


The admin office said a notice will be put on gate a week ahead the date of application issue.

JeevaRK 2013-12-18 21:50:41


Any one have idea about Bharathi Vidhyalaya School, Perumpakkam .
I m looking for Pre KG admission (2014) to my son.. Any one have experience..
Also Please share your thoughts on Boaz School at Gowrivakkam. Share me Fee details if you know.,,,,


Rajivvk 2013-12-19 13:11:18


BVS Perumpakkam pre-KG admission over.  Atound DEC6 i think. But i think if you go and talk to the managment you might stand a chance.

No very good opinion on standard of studies. Fee is lower compared to any in the vicinity

Boaz recently has gained importance and good grades. Also its sanction for +2 ( higher secondary ) CBSE board exam makes it a top school in the area. Feed back from upper primary school parents are good. Fee is high and i heard need to pay 1 shot and not in instalments ( Yet to experience) 


JeevaRK 2013-12-20 22:57:34


Thanks Raji... Do you know any other good cbse schools in & around pallikaranai...


2013ot 2013-12-21 15:39:18


Regarding BOAZ i too got the same reply.

when we need to stand in  the queue to get application on feb 1?

Rajivvk 2013-12-22 12:24:47


Jeeva if you are at pallikaranai, then PON and DAV should be near ( around 5KM) to pallikaranai compared to BOAZ.

Hi Prarthana,

Can you please let us know the fees break up of that Rs. 81,000. Which includes donation and terms fees. i.e How much is donation and term fees and etc. How much it costs for LKG (only term fees except donation).

Thanks in advance.

mano1976 2013-12-25 12:07:55


Admission for KG to siblings completed.

For LKG , below are fees details

Dontation - 80
Fees - 28,200

Ideally same fees applicable for others aswell.


punith100 2013-12-25 12:35:06


Hi Mano,

Thanks for your reply. I believe this 28,200 is yearly fees. Whether we have to pay this in one shot? or 2 or 3 terms?

Rajivvk 2014-01-07 12:01:13


Hi All,
I just now check with BOAZ admin office and they said that the dates of issuing application form is changed to 15th Feb 2014.

SathishSuci 2014-01-15 13:43:57


@prarthana : Is your kid going to Boaz public school? If so, how is the education there? what is the fees structure? I couldnt see much review about this school?

We are staying in medavakkam only. some say this school doesnt have a play ground & also toilets are not that much clean enough?

please share us the details.
