Is there any mom here who is sending her child to SBOA School and Junior College?How is their teaching?R they encouraging extra curricular activities also?Is their student teacher ratio greatly affects the performance of children?how is the overall development of the child studying there?Is Sboa matric and Sboa model are not as good as Sboa Cbse?I want to hear the latest position there preferably from any mother who is sending her child there. I am seriously thinkng about putting my daughter there since they children completed 3 yrs to LKG where as other schools its 3 and half. She will be 3yr 3months by 2010 june and  since she is already tall to her age , sharp,talkative  so i want to put her in LKG .  If i put her in prekg in other schools as per age criteria she may look too tall compared to her classmates.Another reason  I prefer to shift to annanagar. I feel i have only SBOA suitable for my need since they admitt to LKG if 3 yrs completed . I will also feel glad if someone tells what will be the yearly fees for lkg apart from donation.

eagerly waiting for replies

I just read ur query and can tell u a few details about the school as both my kids are studying there.WEgot transferred to chennai in june 2007 and as my kids were previously in a CBSE school we hunted for the same in Annanagar.None of the schools had vacancy then as my son was going to 4th and daughter to UKG.They wrote the entrance test and also paid Rs20,000 each as its 2 years and I hear the donations have gone up and also the fees.Per term fee was around Rs3030 {4 terms} which from next year will be around Rs4080 per term.the student teacher ratio is 1! 60 which is too much,but the teaching is very good.Even coaching for weaker students is there.all the work is very systematic and there's no problem.there are extra curricular activities are taken care of very well and although too crowded ,security is tight and also a well disciplined school.KG classes have AC too.

Thanks a lot.Can u pl tell me what kind of address proof they r asking for admission? We r in Hyderabad now and will be shifting to annanagar around april. We have to find a house for rent near that school. Is it needed to finalise a house before admission itself? If it is rented one what kind of proof we should give?

thanks for ur reply


simi 2009-03-26 15:44:37


I don't think anything is asked in particular but as a general rule the house should be in 3km radius.Of course the address of the rented house will do as I am also staying in a rented one,or else the BSNL landline bill is also a proof,but I don't remember about the school asking any such particulars strictly.The only thing is that if you can get a recommendation letter from any SBI official then your admission is confirmed otherwise a big amount of donation is also sometimes not accepted.But need not worry as their are almost 800 seats in LKG {15 SECTIONS}. The present rumour is that the donations this year is around Rs75000 _Rs1lac.

ok bye

SBOA school being a CBSE school does have x-tra curc actvs but not as compared to PSBB OR CHINMAYA. Yoga is not there & even other x-tra activities u have to put them separately after school ,of course school itself conducts them but only for interestd parents. Its not in the curricula,only drawg & craft is their in their syllabus & english singing class upto 2nd std on weekly basis.Apart from this western dance ,abacus,carnatic.bharatnatyam,music instruments,etc can be joined separately after school hours. If u r more interested in xtra curc then why not try SCHRAM ACADEMY NEAR TO SBOA which is a very good school & takes care of overall development.

hi amsnithi,

Did you get your child put in SBOA junior college?

I tried SBOA matriculation but couldnt able to get it. Still trying.

Is there still chance for me to get admission?
I am a old student from this school passed out 92 batch.

Only mistake that i would have done is the donation amount? can anyone say how much this year they expected?

Is there still way to put my child in SBOA matric?

How about Bhaktavatsalam Vidyashram (CBSE) school? could any one give me info on this school?

I know its too late, still trying

last year it was 25K+, this year surely it would have gone higher...also they will take children who have completed 3 years as on May 30 of the current academic year. Overage kids are also not considered. 4+ will not be admitted to LKG..
