Hello Parents, I'm new to this blog and am a proud father of a 2 year old. I'm Actively searching for good schools in Adyar, RA Puram area.

I have these two schools in mind: Chettinad Vidyashram-RA  Puram and Bala Vidya Mandir-Adyar. Can someone please educate me about these schools?

Like which school is better in these aspects: 1) Student to teacher ratio, 2) Extracurricular activities, 3) Infrastructure for sports 4)  Method of teaching, 5) Confidence building, etc..

Thank you!

Hello All, The very best CBSE school in all respects is Bala Vidya Mandir-Adyar. Though fee might be little high as they have robotics, but you children will become very bright,  knowledgeable and with great potential in the future. I have two daughters currently studying 4th and 7th 2010-2011. I could not even get application for my second daughter for 5th std, but got appli for my first daughter for 8th. My first daughter excelled in that tough entrance exam, ranked 5th out of 200 candidates. Hence, she got the seat on merit. Principal categoricaly said the selection is purely through merit. They also applied simultaneously in Hindu Sr, Adyar and both are wait listed. Both my daughters are top rankers from Akilandeswari, Srirangam since 2009. Picked up sanskrit, Hindi and Tamil from zero and now scoring 99 or 100 % in those subjects. Prior to that they studied in USA. It appears that Hindu Sr school is flooded with lot of powerful influence and I am sure that my daughters have done the exams well to be selected on merit. In spite of that they are wait listed that.....this is what going on and middle class people who has less money and bright children are struggling due to the power game in the school.

Hi all,

Im searching for my kids,elder kid for std I and second one in Lkg. As a mother i did lot of research about schools,where i rcd feedback, Vidhyar mandhir, p.s.senior secondary school, Sir Sivaswami Kalalaya Senior secondary school,  DAV,Bala Vidya Mandhir, Sankara School are the best around our area. Also limited number students per class, gd teachers, innovative method of teaching, Especially ,they will never force the kids too much. All these aspects inspired me.

I desperately seeking admission for my elder daughter in any of above school. If anybody could help me thru contact .pls hel[p
