Could somebody explain me about Aschool.Any experience


umabala 2009-06-08 23:59:24


Hi Puppy,

A School has opened up only this year. So none of us would really know about this school till next year.

you can visit www.aschool.in for information as well

Thanks Umabala,

From ur prev review i could see that u have enrolled ur kid in aschool.Could u plz share ur experience.I have a 3 yr old daughter and recently we have shifted to Alwarpet  near aschool only.Is it worth putting my daughter in Aschool.


umabala 2009-06-09 11:20:21



Yes I have enrolled my daughter. We have all enrolled based on one factor - the management i.e, the chettinad group. The school will be commencing only after two weeks and we will start to send the kids only after then. They will be following the montessori method of teaching till 1st after which it is CBSE syllabus. You will have to wait if you want first hand info about the techers, activities, schooling etc as our kids are the first batch to this school.

The management were very good and cordial as you would have read in the previous reviews. The pre primary school is only available now. The school from 1st to 12th standard would be coming up in a different location and this location would be within a radius of 5 kms from the current pre primary school.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you require further clarifications.

Hi All,

I know this thread has been going on for some time :) but I could not directly find out if any of you have enrolled in the Ashok nagar branch of A-School ? I saw Anna nagar & Velachry being mentioned, but have any of you enrolled your kid in Ashok nagar? I reside in Kodambakkam and am looking to join my  daughter (1 1/2 yr old now) in Ashok nagar branch in Vijaya dasami. Will be very useful if I get to know some parents from the same branch :)

hi uma,,....

feel very bad to know that the school has not completed its construction yet..

i am not sure how they will start teh school without completing the building !!!

wat do v do now ?



umabala 2009-06-09 12:04:45



I think the Ashok Nagar branch is closed for new admissions. Please call the school and confirm.


I agree with you. If we call the school, they would assure that it will be completed. Did you by any chance get to see the recent status of the building? it will not be advisable for the kids to go there when the interior/construction work is in progress. The only  advantage for me is that I will be enrolling my kid during Vijayadasami which is 3 months from now and hence I have ample time.


jayabs 2009-06-09 13:50:08


yeah uma, u are right....you have the time...

i have not visited the building yet..getting some idea about it only through this forum..i will try n visit this weekend definitely...if i dont feel satisfied i think i will call them and enquire..its just 1 week away for the commencement..and tehy cannot do this..



Lavanya 2009-06-09 14:15:04



I just now called the A school and they asked me to contact the school 1 1/2 months before Vijayadasami, which is good :)



umabala 2009-06-09 14:15:50


Do visit and let me know the progress Jayabs.


jayabs 2009-06-09 14:19:24


sure..i will come back and write on the development..

you contacted for what purpose ? to enquire about the building progress or something else ?


umabala 2009-06-09 14:27:23


I contacted to correct my daughter's name. I checked on the building status as well.



jayabs 2009-06-09 15:44:44


oh..ok....did they say it wud be completed by the time school starts ?


VJacob 2009-06-09 17:12:59

Hi all,

Am Jagan,my kid is 1.11 yrs old ,i thought put him in a A-School Thiruvanmiyur,but my parents feel he is too small to put in School,kindly advice me ,




jayabs 2009-06-10 16:43:28


Hi Jagan...

2 is kind of fine to be put in a play school. He is not too small for school

You can definitely give it a try. I put my daughter in play school when she was 2.1 years and she went for couple of months. Now i have joined her in A School for pre-primary (she is goin to be 2.5 now)



 Former member 2009-06-10 17:03:44



Thanks for your reply,am staying besant Nagar,so my near A school will be thriuvanmiyur ,its again some 4 kms from my place,my only concern is i believe the school timing will be from 9.30am to 10.30 am ,so i may find difficult to drop him and pick him up from School,where me and my better half is woking.Kindly let me know ,whether there will be any admisions on Vijayadasami.



jayabs 2009-06-10 17:17:41


Yes, i think they take in children for admission on vijayadhasami also.. ..one of the parent in this forum has admitted her child in A School and she will start schooling in vijayadasami only..

You contact the school (get the number from Aschoo.in website). They will be able to provide more details.

You can also confirm the timings for ur kid with them. Good luck


 Former member 2009-06-10 17:20:40


Thanks ,do u any idea abt the decent and good play school near by besant nagar or adyar.


jayabs 2009-06-10 17:41:07


Grandma and Granpa's is a good play school in besant nagar. They are very very good and very decent. My friend has put her child there adn itseems to be worth it.

You can try it. You can get their number in the internet.


 Former member 2009-06-10 17:53:24


Thank you very much.


umabala 2009-06-11 10:05:47


Hi Lavanya,

Good for you and all the best!!


VJacob 2009-06-11 17:40:06


Thanks...my daughter will be 4 yrs , this july. She is in pre primary II.


umabala 2009-06-12 09:26:45



I guess you, me and Jayabs are sailing in the same boat. Our kids will be loosing one year as we are joining them in CBSE schools. According to CBSE standards, the kid should have completed 5.5 years for getting admitted in 1st standard. A School also follows the same procedure.
