HI Venkit,

Hi,
Here is a review I posted several  weeks back on Parentree about Schools in and around Sholinganallur -

There are several good schools in and around Sholinganallur. I have listed them in order of my preference, you can easily visit each school and evaluate -

1. Babaji Vidhyashram  - A/C - reasonable fees - CBSE affiliated with playground
2. PSBB Millenium - Non A/C - reasonable fees - CBSE affiliated with playground
3. NPS - A/C - medium to high range fees - ICSE affifliated without playground
4. Velammal  - A/C - medium to high range fees - not affiliated, no playground for now
5. Narayana & Chaitanya - A/C - high fees - fully commercial, no playground
6. St.Johns Public School - Non A/C - medium to high fees CBSE Affiliated with playground

After this review I went to Ramana Vidyalaya, Gateway & Sacred Heart...here are the details -

7. Ramana Vidyalaya - Non A/C - very reasonable fees - CBSE Affiliated with small playground - English is a major problem in this school
8.Sacred Heart - Non A/C - reasonable fees - They are just trying to convert from State board to CBSE - English is a problem, they have state board mindset in teaching methodology which is a problem.

I found that it is tough getting admission in Babaji & PSBB however both are very good. Both my children study at Babaji.

All the best in your quest.
PB

Thanks. Do you know the fees details of Velammal, Sholinganallur? 
 

1Venkit 2016-10-17 14:12:23

 

Thanks for the details Papabear. 
I was having Bharathi Vidyalaya Perumbakkam and Ramana Vidyalaya in my mind as options. 
I do not want to go for very high fee schools like NPS.  
Could you  please clarify how much do you mean by reasonable fees as I presumed PSBB to be costly.
Regards
Venkit

Also, did you have a visit to AKG Public School (Asan Groups). What's your opinion about them? 
 

papabear 2016-10-18 13:32:26

 

Hi Venkit, 

I called Velammal but they refused to provide fee details....heard from friends that the charges are around 75k to 80k per year plus high one time cost.

I have not been to AKG and not possible as it is far away from me.

Both Babaji & PSBB charge around 49k to 54K per year depending on the class.

Thank you Sir. I visited Babaji school this morning as they have opened admission for 2017-18 already. 
As you said, yearly fee around 56K for class 1 with a one time fee of 75K. 
Do you avail transport for your kids. When I checked with the office person, they said they are not sure how much it would be. I will be staying in Perumbakkam. 

If you don't mind, can you please share your number with me. I would like to ask some more details about the school over phone. 
regards,
Venkit

Hi Venkit,

I am also staying in Perumbakkam. Got admission for my Kid for LKG in Babaji Vidhyashram for the next academic year.
They told that they cannot provide transport for the KGs. I saw many private vans in front of the school dropping students, Admission team also advised me to opt for the private transport if we cannot drop our kids.

@ Karthikn
Good to know. My daughter is for 1st standard. Most of the schools do not provide transport KG. 
Do you know more about the school and staff. I visited just the office today. How was your meet with the management and Principal. 
Regards
Venkit

@Venkit,

I have also got admission for my kids in UKG and 6th Std. We enquired a van who said that they charge 2500 per kid till Perumbakkam.

@Karthikn

School teachers are very nice and I saw reviews which is very good. So only I finalised with Babaji.

 

Dhu15 2016-10-21 15:31:28

 

@Venkit,
 
Could u pls share info on the admission process in Babaji for Pre-kg.

 

1311 2016-10-21 16:35:58

 

U need to go and register your kid in the iPAD kep in the office room. They will send you mail with the date for school tour. You need to go for the school tour during which they will show you the classrooms, infrastructure including the toilets. After this you will receive mail for the personal interaction date. During the personal intereaction, you will meet the board members of the Committee whci include Principal, Correspondant etc. You can get clear clarifications about the academics, fees etc. Then if they approve the admission, you will be directed to meet the Administration Manager for the fees. He will inform yout he fees details and you can make the payment at the counter. We have made the payment for Admission fees.

Admission fees @ Rs. 74,800. This is not as a donation. It will include fees for Robotics, other extra curricular activities.

Tuition fees @ Rs. 54,200 for UKG payable during January.

@Dhu15, procedure is same as what 1311 said. One change, Once you register your kid's name in the Ipad, you will get a link to your email id to apply online, along with documents, photo, parents photo, community certificate if applicable, etc. 
After that only you will get a date for school tour which will be on weekend. 

I stopped after registering, as my wife felt that it is quite far from Perumbakkam and travelling would make it hectic for the kid. So, i didnt apply yet. 
I also visited AKG Public School. 

@1311, how was the school. Do they have a proper ground? On the website, they show only the basketball loop available. 
Please confirm. 

 

1311 2016-10-25 12:12:20

 

School is really good. I like the infrastructure and the attention they give to the extra curricular activities. Each class is limited with 30 students and they have only 2 sections for each class. Their terrace is really very good. They say they will take dance classes or other astronaut class in the terrace for a change. I am fully satisfied and have paid the registration amount for my 2 kids who will study UKG and 6th std though school is 5 kms distance
 

kavin2013 2016-10-27 00:01:35

 

any advise on Bharathi vidhalaya school...how the coaching and extra curricular or sports activities...
 

1Venkit 2016-10-28 14:35:48

 

@Kavin2013, 
Bharathi Vidyalaya is a relatively old school with moderate fee. However reviews are not so good these days as there is high attrition of teachers and also the English is not so good. 
I too have it as an option for my daughter in my mind. For next year admission they asked me to get in touch during November 1st week. 
regards
Venkit

Kavin, Bharathi vidyalaya is a very nice school, I understand that it was the first CBSE school to come up in and around Sholinganallur. I met the principal Mrs.ALamelu 2-3 yrs back for admission before visiting Babaji and getting admission. I think if you can supplement English teaching at home and OK with only academic focus, this is a good option with reasonable fees. However if you want more exposure and more extra curricular activities you have to look at other schools in the area.
