Hi everybdy.
Regarding the Sankara school in adyar-- Yes the Queue would be formed for 1 Km. I enquired with the watchman. He informed me that queue forms starting from the earlier night, ie from 16th evening 8:00 pm itself. It seems that is the trend. But i feel, there is too much of hype being created.

RAVI2K 2014-02-13 21:53:30


Schools are not creating the hype....parents are creating. I dont know why they come previous day night. 
Schools have limited seat but un limited application.

I wanted to know about the transport facility to this school.
I couldnt find any school transport being arranged as per the site.
DO they provide school transport for the kids.
Also can anyone tell me abt the FEE structure for Sankara school

Hi Thaanya,
i went to this school while submitting the application, i've seen vans are coming and dropping the students at the school gate.
i'm sure they're not owned by school management (didn't see name written on the school vans)
but for sure you can get transport facility

moorthyvidhya 2014-02-26 17:35:49


Good transport facility provided by private van operators.  You can either pay the van fees through school or directly.  There are two van operators and the good one is Dinesh Travels - which is situated very nearer to the school.  very limited children very kind female attendants - charging 900 per month (i am from vananthurai).  My Son's are doing their UKG there. 
Teachers are kind enough. One can meet them any day- for officer goers - teachers are available on all saturdays (except 2nd saturday and GH) .
Maximum strength - 36 in a section
In total a good school in the vicinity of adyar - Getting admission ????
Once if a child is called for an interview means seat is confirmed.  


moorthyvidhya 2014-02-26 17:55:38


1. Please Don't compare both the schools 2. U wont get admission for LKG at Kalakshethra as students are admitted from Pre KG level. First come first serve don't work at Sankara.  However if they called u for an interview - admissions are sure. 


getvmurali 2014-02-26 18:19:37


@moorthyvidhya, Thanks for the info. I have applied for my kid this year. Can you tell me what would be SSSS's selection criteria?

1. Residence within 3 KMS?
2. Both parent well educated?
3. One parent not working?
4. Will recommendation be given higher priority?

I cannot afford any sort of recommendation or a bigger donation. With that constraint, is there any chance of securing a seat here? Please enlighten us. Thanks

@Sri Vidhya 
 when will they start calling for interview in sankara school?


psnagarajan 2014-02-26 20:24:48


as per the notice placed outside the school gate. list of selected candidates for interview Will be displayed on 22nd mar'14 after 5:00 pm

moorthyvidhya 2014-02-27 11:10:32


During 2012, initially they called sibling category then alumni category followed by around 20 children for interview ( some students in the vicinity got some recommendations).  Subsequently, they called around 50 candidates over phone for interview.  As I told earlier children not answering single question & crying through out the process also got admission as a child could not be assessed in a day day or an hour.  In my case, my children were not given seats in RBI School Besant Nagar as they separated my twin sons resulting bad performance.  However, they performed well in Both Sankara & Hindu Sr. Sec School. 

Likewise, I know one boy from my area who was not called for interview.  But while we remitting our fees, the parents entered into the school and shown the ability of the child with vice principal and requested to consider him in case non respond of selected children- resulting that boy got admission subsequently. So it is luck of the boy  I surely say, there is no donation in this school - so dont get confused. 

Regarding residence- Parents residing at Ponni Amman Koil Street not get admission where as Dinesh Travels is plying upto Thuraipakkam -  It is parents to judge

During 2012 - I paid fees for Hindu Sr.Sec School Adyar (20,000/-+ 20,000/-) and on getting admission at Sankara I decided to skip HSSS.  Regarding working parents - No idea - but most of the children in my area - their mothers are home makers including my wife.

From my side, it is a good school- parents are requested not to skip this school in case if they get admission here. Thanks

We had got application form for our daughter in Sankara
Can any one tell me the probable capitation fee there

psnagarajan 2014-03-06 17:50:47


to thaanya if u get call letter or see ur ward name in selection list. ensure u admit ur child. capitation fees is not too much. if u go thru this thread u can understand how less u need to pay. one thing i can say fees collected by this is very less compared to st john or chettinad

SathiyaS 2014-03-07 10:50:32


Hi moorthyvidhya,

   Can you please let me know how you got admission in Sankara ? Did you get thru any recommendation ? Also I heard only thru recommendation we can get seat in that school. Is that true?
