Hello dear parents,

Could we all try to create a checklist of all the remaining schools that we can apply for this year? 

This way, we'll be sure not to miss out on any important dates and no one has to read various threads on Parentree to figure out all the schools discussed so far. If anyone is interested in a particular school, they can obviously read the reviews of those schools on Parentree.

Would be great if everyone contributes and I'll keep updating this post every now and then as new information trickles in. Thanks for your time and contribution.

1. As far as I know, The Schram Academy, Anna Nagar gives out Applications/Admissions till March 31, 2016:

562, Park Road, Anna Nagar West, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600101

2. Jawahar Vidyalaya, Ashok Nagar (JV) is expected to give out applications next month (April, 2016):

3. Achariya Bala Siksha Mandir (ABSM) (No dates posted on their website regarding admission. The below web link has phone numbers to all the branches. Please call them regarding the application process)

Akshar-Arbol International School , this school is looks like an big apartment , doesn't give a look like a school ..  There is no playground in this school.

More over enquired abt the fee structure it almost comes around 1.5 Lakhs. For pre-kg 2016 admission eligibility criteria is Kid should be born before Sep 2013. Kid who born after October 2013 is not eligible for pre kg admission this year.

I think admission is open in GT group of institutions too. GT Aloha Vidya Mandir. My kids are studying there and I came to know admissions are still open. 


UmaKrish2905 2016-04-10 17:40:41


Hi Raneer,
      How do you feel about GT Aloha school, I got application form  for Pre KG, the fees seems to be high , including tution fees= development fees+ smartclass fees(RS.31300), and other fees include 21,300 per yr. Book fees and Uniform fees need to be paid seperately. I know they are handling SMART classrooms, What does that development fee include. what does other fees(rs.23100/yr) include. Please help. 


raneer 2016-04-11 17:44:41


Pon Vidayasharam in k k nagar was great. Now it is totally taken for granted. My Friend's kids are studying there. There is a change in the management and the school has lost its reputation. But if your want the best basic foundation put your kid in pon vidhyasharam. These kids have got good communication skills

sujir29 2016-04-11 18:31:59


Hi Raneer,
Can you please let me know if the admission is still available. Got a lot of positive feedback about their school. Would like to enrol my kid there. 


sbrsiva 2016-04-11 18:46:08


Hello Sujir,
Yes, the admissions are open. But depends on which class you are looking for. 


sbrsiva 2016-04-11 18:49:15


Helo UmaKrish,
The fees is pretty on the higher end but if you take school with these facilities they are equally the same. these people take it in advance and other school keep asking for money all throughout the year. My kid is studying here for the past three years. I still remember the previous school she studied in. They would often send a write up in diary asking for money for various events and donations. As I shifted to Neelangarai and could get admission in Maharishi, joined her here. School is good and academics wise also fine.

Hi Siva
   Thanks for your reply, I have visited Manthan Vidyashram too, Since it follows CBSE as well as IGCSE curriculum by 12th, They have posted that their students excel in National science, cyber maths olympiads , ASSET examinations. How about here,  Infrastructure is very good in GTAVM than Manthan. Fingers crossed. Please suggest.


rekha37 2016-05-20 11:58:44


Hi UmaKrish,
Every school talks great about themselves. It lies on us to do a complete research before we join our Kids. GT is really good when compared to the other schools in Neelankarai. The negative reveiws posted are way too old. I personally like the school and the way they function. With respect to Manthan, I am sorry I have no clue. 
All the best in finding the best school for your kid
