Yes, we are also scheduled for interview. Please let us know how would be interview process.

 Yes, we are also scheduled for the interview tomorrow. From what we understood, it is primarily to check the comfort level of parents for montessori education and their understanding.

 Hi all, 

Sorry i didnt get to c ur posts on time! how did the interview go? 

 

sajama 2013-09-04 16:40:55

 

Interview was short, asked why montessori, why abacus, child's daily schedule etc. Haven't heard anything after that.

Have any of you heard back after the interview? How did it go for you?

 

chithugan 2013-09-05 09:32:18

 

 Yeah, similar questions for us too. We too havent heard after that. Keeping the fingers crossed for the result.

 

MariS 2013-09-05 11:32:43

 

Yes, we too attended the interview and waiting for the result. Questions were similar as above.

My kid is 2 yrs old. Can i go and get the enquiry form for his June 2014 admission

 

chithugan 2013-09-05 20:26:26

 

 Yes, you can definitely submit the enquiry form now.

 

sajama 2013-09-07 21:00:07

 

Got a call from the school confirming  admission. Just wanted to update.

 

Anaghasri 2013-09-10 21:34:56

 

 School Re-opens on the 23rd of Sep for new primary!

 

sajama 2013-09-11 10:27:10

 

Anaghasri, does your child go by the school van? Wil it be safe to send a small child?

 

chithugan 2013-09-11 15:57:24

 

 My child also got admission. We are also planning to drop and pick up ourselves to start with

Hi,

Congrats to each and everyone.

My kid will complete 2yrs this October. We have already completed our registeration with Abacus this August.

Will our registertion be considered for January 2014 or June 2014, as only in june he will complete 2.5 Yrs.

Can we put our Kid in Playschool till then? If so will it be an advantage to get admission, which is common with other schools.

 

sajama 2013-09-11 21:12:54

 

chithugan congrats!

Ruthvee, maybe it will be a good idea to put her in a montessori school until then. Just my idea since abacus follows montessori too. Here is a list

sajama 2013-09-11 21:56:33

 

 I think you will be considered  for June 2014. Did you fill the enquiry form or the registration form?

 

chithugan 2013-09-11 22:29:16

 

 Yes Ruthvee, i too think that you will be considered for Jun 2014. You might choose to put her in play school if you feel that she might find it interested and like it. But, i dont think it will be an advantage as such for getting into Abacus based on my understanding.

Thank you Sajma for the wishes. Congrats to you too. 

 

AnithaPillai 2013-09-12 14:31:00

 

Congrats to all parents who have secured admissions

Any idea how many kids were selected for this intake? Could any of you through some light on the selection process ?

Thanks,

Anitha

 

Anaghasri 2013-09-15 17:38:31

 

 @Sajama, 

Hi - Abacus does not own school vans and i was skeptical about sending my lil one in a private van. My husband drops and picks him up everyday.

 


vpmp 2013-09-26 15:51:32

 

Hi All,

Congrats to all parents who secured a seat in Abacus.

I am one of those unfortunate parents who did not ... Planning to try again next year.

It would be very very helpful if you can share your experience with us .. Like what answers you gave for the usual questions..

My husband was in US when we attended the interview - Is this an issue ? And I am also working

Thanks

Vishnu

 

 

AnithaPillai 2013-09-26 17:15:00

 

@ vpmp ,Which class did you try for ?

Parents of kids who are at Abacus:

I do not understand their admission system, as they say they will consider admissions for Jan term only if vacancies arise. But my kid has completed 2-1/2 only now and would be eligible only in  Jan.

Do I stand a chance?

Could someone pls clarify on this

 

 

sajama 2013-09-26 21:05:27

 

vpmp & Anitha , like mentioned before , there were only a few questions and we did not give any pre prepared answers. It was quite short and after a point, they said that they will get back to us. I was very doubtful of getting admission because the interview  ended quite soon. But it looks like there were about 20 kids selected this time for primary but not sure how many of them were 2 1/2 and how many were older since primary is  mixed age group.

 

vpmp 2013-09-27 13:52:37

 

Thanks a lot Sajama. I tried for Prekg for Sept term ...

Hi Anitha,

They absorb kids in 3 stages for PRE-KG itself ( depending on 21/2 completion)... once in September , January and June. And they will move to the next class after one year only ..

You should go to the school now and get the application form ( 3000 + 300) and regsiter. I saw several parents doing that when i went to ask about when i can reapply again

They will call you for interview by december I think...

Depending on the interview they will confirm or reject. I think the key is to keep your answers very short and never make them feel you are agressive or expecting too much from the school .. Also mention that You dont have any other school in mind other than abacus. ( Schools like to hear this) . Just my thought after the interview .. But decide what best suits you.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Vishnu

Hi Vishnu,

I went to the school early this week. They gave me an admission enquiry form which asked for contact details and our idea of the educstion. I filled and gave but no fee was asked. Is this the one or do I need to fill another application ?

 

 

vpmp 2013-09-27 14:28:32

 

Hi Anitha,

They will call you when the application forms are ready ... But you go there in person every now and then .. I saw some parents filling the registration - Rs 3000 .. May you you should check again

 

AnithaPillai 2013-09-27 15:26:59

 

Thanks for the info  Vishnu and Sajama.

Will go again and check

Thanks,

eshine 2013-11-07 11:32:31

 

@Anitha, While registering the application form in Abacus last week, they told me that since my daughter is eligible for Jan 2014 term so I can expect call only by December 2013.
