Friends -

Please let me know if any of you started getting calls for Sishya OMR. 

I registered in 2012 and was asked to pay 3 L for 2016 LKG Admission last week. Any one else got a call for Sishya OMR - please share feedback.

I am also evaluating SEED ACADEMY , BVM PERUNGUDI and APL Global.

BVM Perungudi - Sewage Treatment plant is a big minus

Seed Academy - Very new school with less experienced staff

APL Global - Costly and not well proven school

Team - Please help me with your inputs on the comparision of these 4 schools or any other good school in Thoraipakkam / Perungudi area

I got my kid admission in AKG school,pallikarani which is good. I registered for 2012 too in OMR Sishya as its very near to my home but after looking at the campus and hearing about the donation they are charging, I feel its not worth it. One of my friend kid is being admitted in APL global and he is talking good about it . If Cambridge course is OK, you can consider it. Other options:

Hindustan School - Very new school . started this year.Visited early this year when they haven't started operations. Infrastructure is good but not sure on quality of teachers. Fees seems to be low when compared to others.

Thanks Chaganthiadithya for the inputs. Can you please confirm on CBSE affiliation of AKG school? APL Global is equally costly. But we are planning to visit the school next week. APL follows Cambridge IGSC syllabus and Sishya follows ICSE syllabus. Do you know which one is better? I visited Hindustan School but it is yet to be established.

Hi I have not got calls from Sishya yet, Visited hindustan and Babaji vidhyashram

Visalalakshi 2015-11-02 13:51:54


Hindustan - CBSE affiliation is not there
Babaji - Feedback is not good


papabear 2015-11-02 16:14:43


Yes found that Hindustan does not have affiliation which is quite normal for any new school but what was worrying is that they are not willing to reveal if they have any other form of approval/recognition.
Babaji Vidhyashram I had a very good experience, visited and applied also saw the school and met teachers, I have already applied here for admission.
Is there any other school I should apply on a prallel basis in case I do not get here?

Visalalakshi 2015-11-03 08:32:52


Can you also please explore APL global and BVM Global Perungudi? Both are good schools

Any other feedback on SEED ACADEMY , BVM PERUNGUDI and APL Global and Sishya OMR in Perungudi / Thoraipakkam?

papabear 2015-11-13 07:49:00


Visalakshi, I visited BVM Perungudi and APL Global. 

BVM Perungudi - next to sewage treatment plant, I don't know how our government permits such a facility to function. When I asked them if they have all necessary permissions they are evasive. I heard from a teacher working there that her own child studying there has skin condition after joining here and they are planning to quit this year.

APL Global - Small school but they are expanding to bigger building in 2 years. Their fee levels and costs are beyond my budget. There is no big play ground for now and they only follow IGCSE syllabus. 

Seed Academy - Is only a play school and not what I am looking for - mainstream CBSE school with all facilities

Visalalakshi 2015-11-13 09:09:07


Hi Papabear -

I also checked on Hindustan CBSE school in KCT campus. It does not have affiliation or good teachers yet as it is less than 2 years old.
Please check the same.

Did you also consider Sishya OMR? Can you please share your feedback on the same?

Hi all
I am from US. I am planning to move to chennai for 2016 academic year.
My house is located in Okkiyam Thoraipakkam.
My kid is 7 year old, so he will be in Grade 2.
Please, suggest me best CBSE schools nearby.
And about admission and fees details.

(Looking for : 1) kids should enjoy the school 
                       2) students : teachers ratio should be less
                       3) good academic
                       4) spacious classroom and outdoor playarea
I heard about 1) Abacus 2) San academy 3) AKG 4) APL  5) Hindustan
Anyone have idea about mentioned schools. 

Thanks all in advance

These are the schools on OMR near Okkiyam in order of proximity to your place

1. Hindustan - Not yet affiliated, total 80 children less than one year old, fee range - about 75k - 90k per year inclusive of all - started in June 2015 - offer CBSE & IGCSE, playground available. Too few children too understand mix of background
2. Babaji Vidhyashram - they have NOC & recognition awaiting affiliation papers, total 370 children, fee range 48K - 51K per year - started in April 2015 - they are clear that they will only follow CBSE , A/C Classrooms and playground available - good mix of children from different strata of society
3. APL Global - about 4 - 5 years old, fee range about 1 Lakh plus, offer only IGCSE, no playground but a/c classrooms. When I visited it was a high society school with children from only affluent background

1234 Sach,

Proximity for you from Padur
1. Babaji Vidhyashram
2. Hindustan
3. APL

you can also try HLC (if you can afford) & PSBB

Thanks Papabear. Any idea on Hiranandani - HUS School? 


papabear 2015-12-08 15:10:26


Hi Visalakshi,

HUS is also a nice school, visited last year, but expensive also heard from a parent that recently they are having a lot of trouble with their top person moving out and the next head making lot of changes literally reversing whatever systems they have been following so far.

What about you did you finally take admission anywhere? which class is your child in?

Visalalakshi 2015-12-09 00:10:31


Thanks Papabear. I am interested in Sishya OMR vs. APL. My sister is considering HUS School for her kid. Did you get a call from Sishya OMR? What is your view on that school?

brindha11 2015-12-10 02:31:03


Thanks for the information papabear. Is Hindustan school is nearby canal ? Is the school and surrounding are safe for kids?
