Hello parents, 

Am shifting to Adyar in Jan 2014. I would like to get reviews on BVM, Shankara & HSSS. When will they be giving the application & Would like more information about LKG admissions.

Hi Vidya,
Requesting your guidance. I am presently in Velachery and planning to try for admission for my 3 yr old girl in good CBSE schools in Velachery and Adyar. Can you pls guide me on the selection criteria for the schools below. I know nobody can give a perfect answer but I am just looking to hear your views.. Having read so many threads in parentree, I am wondering if I stand a chance for Adyar schools, as I am in Velachery. 
1) Bala Vidya Mandir
2) Sankara
3) Hindu
4) Arsha Vidya Mandir
5) Navadisha
I got your name while reading one of the parentree discussions and thought I will ask someone in Adyar about their experiences. Thanks!

I'm from Velachery and also tried school in Adyar, last year & the year before that, but in vain.
I tried BVM (2 years) and Shankara. Didn't get through. Didn't try Hindu.
Didn't attempt Navadisha, since its Montessori & ICSE board.
Tried Arsha Vidya Mandir, got through and didn't take it (for various reasons).
Adyar schools are surely better but not ideal for kids to travel that distance. Depends on where you stay in Velachery!!!
Why don't you try DAV Public School? It's not the best, but good enough!

Thanks Puzzled, for your inputs.. I will definitely try in DAV as well... Do you know when they'll issue application forms for LKG? Disappointing to hear that its tough to get through in BVM, Sankara, being in Velachery..  But I agree that its tough to travel that far, but not sure if I'll get in good Velachery schools.. Could you pls let me know the selection criteria for Arsha Vidya Mandir, whatever info that you know of? Thanks !

@hamsamom - If you are trying for LKG, getting into DAV & BVM is next to impossible since they have PreKG. Shankara, Hindu & AVM do not have pre kg and hence the chances of gettin into these places are higher.
As for AVM - Forms are up online, you need to fill them up online and attach the required doc. Then they shortlist and call for an interaction and then they select. The only reason AVM is tough to get into is because it has only 1 section with only 32 children

Hi @hamsamom sorry for d delayed response. . I applied inbvm sankara n hindu last year for my son. . Didn't get thru bvm which was fine as they charge 1.5 lks as donation or that's what I heard. . Both hindu senior n shankara senior r straight forward. . N being in velachery is not a problem. . Some students r from velachery. . My son is in sankara senior n school is very good. . He even got into hindu senior but I chose sankara... Do interview well n that's it process is simple. . hope this helps
