I would request to everyone who have applied this year to share their result or interview experiences. It would be really helpful for people who would like to know more about the school and the admission process
may I know if there is any update after the acknowledgment email?
No, If shortlisted we will be assigned with an application number and an invite for interaction. As per the notice, the interaction will be happening on 2nd week of march. Not sure when could be expect the mail for the same. Waiting. Anyone else got other updates from the school?
As of now, No email post the application received one€
I called to the office and they said there would be an update within this week.
Any update from the school? Has anyone received mail other than acknowledgment?
No mail after acknowledgement, still waiting
Any update from the school?
Still no update but plan B schools running out of time for admission
@sathishan, I could see, you have applied for last year as well? This year only LKG is open., Are you trying for LKG this year again?
I received email from school on Thursday that there will be parents meeting today. We attended the meeting along with our child, he was asked to play and we were asked questions like How did you know this school, why do you think child should be independent, why do you think competition is not necessary and few more.
We have been told that the school would let us know an update in three weeks.
On 20-21 we applied for our daughter for 5th.that was canceled due to covid again applied for 21_22 and attended interview but not selected, this year we applied for lkg for our son and still waiting for mail...,
first option we will wait till kfi meeting and results plan B schools is other schools cbse or state syllabus
How many people were called for meeting today.
We were called for 09:00 AM slot and none were there. When we came out one parent was sitting and I think they too came for interview.
Good to know Ravishankar, All the best!
Thank you @prezi, all the best to everyone.
Will everyone be called for interactive session? We still din't get any mail from the school. If we are not selected, Will they send any mail stating the same?
Thanks for ur reply..all the best..
I understand from this thread that, till 2020-21 all the applicants with correct age limit are called for interview but last year one applicant got the mail that "unable to process due to large number of applications" don't know when they got the mail either second week or last week of March.
Hi all, applied for the last year lkg admission and i was the one who got that email.. received that email sometime closer to end second week(as per their time frame) straight after acknowledgment email..this year too we applied desperately though it will be a repeat but looks like same pattern again..
note we applied from bangalore€
Got mail from the school today. We were not selected. All the very best for those who attended and going to attend the interaction session.
Very disappointing, kindly can you share either you attended the interview or waiting for that
We dint attend the interactive session. After the acknowledgement mail we received this mail stating due to large number of applicants we could not consider your application.
So no more hopes for those who didn't get interaction mail?
Really not sure what are the criterias for filtering the application..
last year rejection at application level..
this year application if they would have thought we are keen in this alternative education we would have been shortlisted ..again no response so far ( likely rejection saying large volume)
not sure what else one parent can do who are really interested only in alternative education specially like kfi schools instead of mainstream schools..
Good luck to all who made this year and to others i can only say €œ i can totally understand as this our second rejection for same section€
Hi All, Wanted to share my experience of the parents meeting for our daughter's LKG admission.
We reached the School right at the time mentioned in the meeting invite email. We were told to wait a few mins as there was one interview already ongoing. We did not see any other parents waiting, so I presume the number of interviews scheduled per day is limited.
My initial impression of the school is a reflection of all the things I read and hear about it. The abience of the school is really unique. We saw lush greenery everywhere, birds chirping and squirrels running around. The staff we interacted with so far were very welcoming, polite, and professional. Even the waiting room we sat in had an aesthetic to it with a book collection of JK.
When our turn came, we entered the room where the interviews were held. The panel consisted of four women who seemed to be senior staff of the school. We saw a few toys available on the side of the room, the panel suggest us to let our daughter play so that they can have a discussion with us.
The questions asked by the panel were nothing out of the ordinary...
1. Asked how did we come to know about the school. As I started talking first, they asked my wife if she wanted to add anything.
2. Asked if we had gone through their website and found anything interesting about the activities done by the school.
3. Asked how do we deal with the wants and demands of children. Wanted us to give an example of how we dealt with such situations in real life with my daughter.
4. Asked us how we deal with children's tantrums.
After these questions, they spoke about the next steps of the application process, we were told to expect an update within 3 weeks. While leaving they had a quick chat with my daughter asking if she wants to take the drawing sheet along with her. We left the premises shortly. Overall it was a nice experience.
I hope our interview experience at The School will be helpful for other parents.
