    I am residing at Thiruvanmiyur, I am searching for PreKG admission for my daugher Jeisree, she is 2.6 years old. I got application forms at Manthan Vidhyashram, GT Aloha and Velammal Vidyalaya(school is at construction phase).
    I have visited Manthan Vidyashram, that is affiliated to Edexcel, and offers prekg to IGCSE(Class X) and GCE(Class XII), following CBSE syllabus upto Class VII.Is it good. Does it also have extra-curricular activities. 
   Is GT Aloha school good in all aspects. Velammal is still in construction phase and would be functional by July 2016, They have some schemes like paying rs.3,75,000 for pre KG would be accountable till 10th class. otherwise it is rs.74500. How about velammal vidyalaya, CBSE . Does any one know about fee structure and school infrastructure of velammal newgen school , Medavakkam.
   Please guide.

My daughter is studying in GTA Vidhya Mandir and yea it is a pretty good school comparatively. The fees is a little higher but the exposure the kids get are outstanding. Initially, even I was worried as they were not well established but now they have improved way far better. Education wise, extra-curricular, overall development everything is good. But, you could also look at the feasibility of distance, fees and decide. 
Apart from GT, you could also try Pon Vidyashram or Sri Sankara , my friend's kids are studying there and I have heard positive reviews from her.

I have made up my mind to GTA vidya mandhir, which class is your daughter in. I have some queries. 1. Does the school encourage sports activities, While I have been to school for submitting application form I saw kids getting sports uniform , but school lacks big playground.  Is it? Does extra curricular activities borne charges apart from the fee structure? Is the extra curricular activities mandatory.Is french available as second language?  Students also got lot of books in schoolname printed bag, then  from which classes PDAs are issued?Does it coach students for competitive exams like NTSE, Olympiad , ASSET exams or for IIT in higher classes, I like the infrastructure very much , so willing to enroll my daughter. Please clarify.

Hi, Thanks is GT aloha vidhya mandir. My daughter will b taking up entrance test this week.any idea if they give coaching for Olympiad and spell bee ? Thanks in advance

veena 2016-05-09 15:49:10


They do not provide coaching for Olympiad, but kids are getting good ranks in those exams. I wonder how? 
You can see an overall development of kids. Academic wise , all depends on the teachers. From this year they r following EZVidya curriculum for LKG till V grade.

UmaKrish2905 2016-05-09 16:05:56


Hi Vidya,

veena 2016-05-10 12:17:41


EZ vidya is a kind of XSEED curriculum. Yes they do conduct Olympiad, spell bee and lot more.. 
Fees structure include extra activities also. They have plenty of activities.

Dear All,

I'm seeking feedback on GTAloha Vidya Mandir.Parents of kids can you provide your fb?

I have heard that there is more pressure in academics for the kids , is that true?

What is the teacher: student ratio?

Hi, Appreciate your valuable feedback abt Balaji Vidyashram. Thanks

deesh 2017-01-25 12:25:22



About GTA vidya mandhir. Good school but does not have big play ground. As located in costiliest area they afford a big ground. If u r thinking only for academics you can try there. 
if u compare velammal i can suggest vellamal. Its a big institution. But GTA locted in ECR road and Velammal in Sholinganallur junction. Bit traffic.


deesh 2017-01-25 12:27:13


hi Vinayk,
Babaji vidyashram is superb school. You can opt for tat. Fees is less and academic is good , no pressure. Big play gound.
Good selection.


deesh 2017-01-25 12:33:50


Do not spend too much for school fees and infrastructure. It become a business. my suggection is 
Hindu school, Sri Sankara Adayar.
Velammal Vidyalaya sholinganallur, do not go fo new gen
GTA and Manthan ECR
PS and vidyamandir in Mylapore
Sundravalli in Chrompet
Best is KV in IIT campus.

I recently went to GT Aloha Vidhya Mandir school. Came to know from them that the Aloha is not associated with them. Now the school name is still GTA Vidhya Mandir school. Can any one let us know what is the pros / cons after this partition?

AS far as we saw, the campus has play area behind the school building, crickets nets are there, volley ball, basket ball courts are there. Buses are nice and toilet is maintained well.

Though AC is there in all the class rooms, we doubt how often they switch on them. Class rooms are having smart boards. 

Also whether all the stuff listed in their website is really happening in real time. They have put plenty of information in their website, as co-curricular and extra curicular activities, just want to know how far this is happening.

How the children feel about attending this school, also how is the communication skill set of students there.
Is studying in this school gives the real feel of being in a CBSE school. Hope more parents can understand my expectation, as to how we think about cbse schools in our school days (who studied in matric schools know).

Also is any one sending their child from areas like sakthi nagar, customs colony (Thoraipakkam), as they are saying that their buses will go all the way to shollinganallur and come to neelangarai. so 7.40 pick up from the above locations, but school is only at 8.30.
