I am starting this thread for the discussion about shradda school kottivakkam.
I put my daughter in LKG 2017 batch. I would like to connect with parents of same batch offline for details.
Few Details :
L K G : Totally 3 Sections
Eligibility: 3 Years as on 31st March, 2017
Ratio: 32 students with 2 Teachers
School Timings for LKG and UKG: 9.15 AM to 12.30 PM
Fees: Rs. 50,000 ( One Time admission Fees) + 57,000 ( which can be paid in 3 installments) + Bus Fees
Proper Ventilation ?: Yes
Cleanliness: Very Good maintenance and clean (including rest room)
KG's Play Area: Yes
Easily Accessible? : Yes ( on ECR main road)
You can visit the school along with ur Ward and meet principal directly. They will also show you the class rooms and other places. You can ask as many questions you want to ask with them. They are very polite and explain you the details.
If you are comfortable, get application form ( Rs. 500) and submit the same asap ( Min Rs. 10000 to block the seat) . Selection procedure is based on First come First serve basis.
Since they are new ( started in 2014) , they want to prove their brand outside by providing values and growth. Hence its good opportunity for parents to easily interact with the management. If there are any concerns, they will accept and rectify the issues asap.
I don't think this 1:1 interaction is there in many of the branded schools like Sankara,BVM, Hindu and Manthan.
Why i selected this School?
1. Student Teacher Ratio is good
2. Hygienic environment
3. Good Ventilation in class rooms ( 6 to 7 fans in each class)
4. Since there will be less students in each class, its easy for the teachers to understand individual kids.
5. Easily approachable management
6. Easy access to school
7. Though fees seems to be little high, i would say it's worth.
8. From my apartment (Thiruvanmiyur), around 3 ppl going to this school (4th, 8th and 2nd standard). Their parents also happy with their children's education ( No pressure till 5th Standard). However, they will encourage for Extra curricular activities too.
9. Separate play area for KG Students ( since my daughter is 3 years old, i expect play based learning instead of class room writing)
10. CCTV Camera in school campus and Class room lobby & play area
11. Separate Washroom & Toilets for KG students ( Well maintained)
12. Supporting staffs ( aayamma- dont know how to pronounce), - one/two per class.
Thanks for the detailed view. We will also check this school? Do they have upto XII Std?
It is excellent information & Thanks for that.
Looking for admission @ Shraddha for 4th Grade. I want to seek some review Do you know, any body whose kid studying in 4th grade, ti seek further feedback about the higher classes. Appreciate your help.
Sure. One guy from apartment is studying 4th /5th in shradda. i will get in touch with them. do u have any specific question to ask?
As of now the school is functioning till 8th std. they are expanding till 12 this year. May be u can confirm the same talking to the admission ofc
Thanks amar2arul. Do they still have vacancies for LKG?
Yes. They still issuing the application form and they might close and finalize the admission by first week of march
I also visited the school after seeing your post but I feel the front office receptionist is not much help.
Yes, the classrooms are spacious and infra is really good.
But I doubt how they are in improving communication, English speaking etc..
Front office ppl there for admission fees payment related queries... But teachers and students are very good. The guy from my apartment can speak only in english with no mistakes. Their practicing style s also different
I had admitted my both son's in sharadha children's academy this year.one in UKG and another one in 7th STD.i agree with amar2arul the school looks good
We have got call letter from St. John's besant Nagar.it is like any other traditional school. I am more comfortable with Shraddha's environment. Might be I am tolding back as a mother if my kid will be lost in the crowd of 50 kids in one class I.eas per St John's school reviews. Which one is better? Please provide your inputs n help out! My ofc will be in Ramanuja IT park. Pls suggest considering this aspect too.
I also got call letter from St.John's for LKG ( my timing is 11.30 AM)... however m not going because of crowd and traditional method of teaching.
Only plus point about St.John's school is that the class start @ 9.30 AM. ( for all the standards), but that doesnt impact the education.
more over fees comes close to shradda
St.Johns ( Totally - 59000+ 8000 + 7000) . and transport is extra.
Shradda ( 50000 + 57000 + transport)
Since it has new class rooms , ventilation and atmosphere seems to be ok when compared to John's/
I have also put my son in LKG 2017-18 batch. We went personally to the school in December n whatever amar2arul said is very correct. We liked the well ventilated class rooms and the student teacher ratio( we wanted this exactly). Also we were allowed to see the play area, class rooms and washrooms.... So clean and the people were friendly.... Let's be in touch through this group.
Have u paid the fees fully.... I have the basic AMT to block the seat alone. Any info on wen to pay the full amt?
i paid 10k by cheque . they told we need to pay remaining 40k ( admission fees 50k) on or before 2nd week of march
First term fee & Book fee by end of march
Nice to know you. My daughter name s akshara. We may connect & keep in touch
We have finalized on shraddha too.I know its not the right thread to put forth this question, because we already were in discussion I am posting.Can you please help listing community apartments near by the school.We are relocating from Bangalore and not familiar with the vicinity. It would be really helpful.Please suggest if anyone knows good apartments around.
Anyone got SMS from School regarding Transport ? . We need to pay Rs. 2000/- (Two thousand) to block the Seat on or before 23rd Feb
Hello ashrithd ,
I recommend u to check in Sulekha ( filter by agents). Then get the agent number and ask for details. ( However, u have to strictly negotiate the commission before discussing)Usually they will charge one month rent. But if u can negotiate before start searching the house , u can pay just 20 to 30% of the rent.
Thanks for your response. Sorry for the delayed reply. I'm looking for some general feedback, especially about staff, their competency, etc. Would be great if get in touch with my personal email id: email@example.com
Appreciate your suggestion amar2arul .Thanks a lot!
