We had visited the Gateway school at sholinganallur. Planning to join my kid there, senior KG. I am personally convinced with the facilities and fees of this school, but need some extra inputs regarding the quality of education and the other activities, from parents of kids studying here. Hoping for some good feedback:-)

even i visited the campus...but not satisfied fully....
a)extra curricular activities--request parents to provide their feedback on the same
b)teaching--read the other reviews but want more clarity
c)safety -?? there is no school-compound wall..its just bound by some green mesh....dogs can easily wander in through.
d)food--not sure what food is provided at the school canteen.

any other input would be highly appreciated

I had personally visited this school, last week and the Infrastructre wasnt good  considering the fees they were quoting about 1.3 Lakhs for pre-kg

Hi Rakesh,

Are you sure they quoted 1.3 lakhs ..... ??

We went there twice and 1st time they said 60k sometime in November and next time they gave a new price list around december and informed its 80k...

Do they keep increasing the fees ??



rakesh1984 2014-02-11 21:44:30

Hai... Can i hv reviews abt the Gateway international school in padur cbse curriculum...had anybody got admission over there?

Hi Shobanaashok,

I have secured a seat for my daughter in Gateway International School(CBSE) for LKG. Though I have never visited the campus personally since I am abroad,I've heard positive reviews about the school from one of my friends in Chennai.She had been to the nearby schools and finally shortlisted Gateway and secured a seat for her son there.My parents had also been to the school and seemed to be satisfied with the facilities provided.The school infrastructure seems to be good with good classrooms,well equipped library,large playground etc.The school also provides door pick up and drop services.The student teacher ratio is around 25:1.They also have extra curricular activities from class I onward.You may visit the school and take a look around to get a better picture.Hope this snapshot helps in a small way...

My son started GATEWAY THE COMPLETE SCHOOL  in September 2012 entering grade 5. As he became adjusted to this new school environment very quickly, it was reassuring to know the middle school staffs made him feel well at ease. He has shown me that he has matured and gained a lot of confidence here. Middle school teachers are very accommodating and always willing to help him along with his fellow classmates. His hard work and perseverance shows me how gateway is good and fit for him .The school environment has clearly shown to be nurturing, welcoming and highly educational. I am so happy that I have chosen gateway at this stage for my son.
three things are to be noted :-

1.proper maintenance of A/C

2.playground is to be improved

3.more collections of books are required in the library

Hi. I am very happy with Gateway Padur. My son is studying in this school since 2 years and is learning well. He is in LKG now. Homework is given 2 or 3 times a week. Teachers are patient with the kids and ensure all kids are learning and participating in activities. The campus is neat and clean.

Hi, my daughter is studying in GIS padur. I would say the school is very good and has a very big ground for kids to play. Fee also very nominal compared to other cbse schools. Teachers and management is very approachable and very respectful. We moved back from usa last year and my daughter was finding very difficult to adopt but due to the teachers niceness she adopted quickly. They motivate the kids well. If you are nearby padur you can go for GIS. Thank you.

Sri88 2022-02-15 14:23:17


Curriculum is cbse, teaching will be interactive they have till 12th grade.

Hi Any parents who know about Gateway schools or who have their kids in Gateway school .. Please share your reviews

Hi, we are considering Gateway The Complete School, Sholinganallur for our daughter going into grade 5. We visited the school and had a campus walkaround + discussion. Our initial impression was that the school seem to be flexible and encourage feedback (don't know if they implement it or not). They have two buildings separated by a playground in the middle which is owned by the city but they use it occasionally. We were told that the kids get to go to the Padur location every Friday afternoon for sports activities since there is a bigger playground over there.

The main building hosts grade 5 to 12 I guess and the new building is for primary. The new building has a swimming pool and I believe all classes use it. They do not provide food but we were told that we can even send in Swiggy/Zomato orders and they will handover to the kids. The main building is a little dated and needs refresh. They said they are planning to replace the tables and chairs this year. We were allowed to get into the new building (primary) and look at all the classes but not into the main building classrooms since classes were live.

Fees seems to be around 1.3 lakhs plus 1 lakh donation (non-refundable). Curriculum is CIE/IGSCE. We are planning to visit once again to take a look at the middle/high school classrooms and ask few more questions.

If there is any specific question I could answer please let me know. Also, if there are other parents who could share their experience or feedback about this school, please share as well. Thank you!

we too went to the school but being Saturday the school was closed and security guards didn€™t allow us inside. But school looked big old. How is it inside and how are classrooms? Do they have smart boards? Because IB branch didn€™t have even smart boards.
Don€™t you think charging 1lakh as donation is absurd when school is not maintained properly?

Prikar3 2022-05-16 00:26:01


Hi Aaru23,

The GTCS building is a bit old since they started the school in 2006 (one of the first international schools in the OMR stretch). The classrooms definitely were in a need for a refresh and the management had indicated that they are going to work on painting and replacing furniture over the summer break. They did have smart boards if I remember right.

We did visit the IB school as well and weren't impressed with the quality of teachers. The only advantage with the IB school is that it has a proper playground and a slightly larger swimming pool.

Sorry, will not recommend to take up the school. Not worth in terms of quality for the money.. they give lot of details , but not happening. Even the students can't write and speak English even at 8th standard. in Neelakarai school.
