We are new to Coimbatore and staying at Saravanampatti. We are looking for preschool admission for our son. We went to the following schools and made an enquiry. Fee in International schools for CBSE curriculum is high compared to the non international ones. If you already know about the academics in these schools, could you please suggest how good are they?
We went to Suguna PIPS (Gandhipuram) and registered for pre-kg. But we were told that the chances are less as we are late. They asked to register and go. They told us if they are calling us, they will do that before Jan 15.
Visited Camford International School. They showed the pre-kg classrooms. One time non refundable fee is Rs 60000. Fee for pre kg is Rs 75000 which includes term fee, academic materials and uniform. They asked us to buy an application form for Rs 500 and apply.
Visited Ksirs International School. No CBSE. Only ICSE or IGCSE. Asked us to buy an application form for Rs 500 and apply. Didn't show us the pre kg classrooms. They told, once we apply, they will call few of the applicants and explain everything. One time non refundable fee is Rs 65000. Fee for pre kg is Rs 60000. This includes only term fee. Uniform and Academic Materials are extra.
Visited Manchester International School. They showed us the classrooms. Application form is Rs 2000. One time non refundable fee is Rs 57000. Fee for pre kg is Rs 77500 which includes term fee, Academic Materials, uniform.
Visited NGP school. They showed us the classrooms. We made a pre registration. Asked us to bring the kid for admission. They told us they will explain everything during that time. Enquired with a parent and came to know that fee will be less than Rs 55000. Also one time non registration fee increases with demand. They paid Rs 60000 because they came for admission in March. Meanwhile the parents who completed the admission by December or January paid Rs 30000 to 40000. Told us that the school is good with play way method of teaching.
Visited Chandrakanthi Public School (CBSE). Couldn't see the classrooms. Made a pre registration and came back. Enquired with a parent. They paid Rs 40000 as one time non refundable fee 2 years back. Fee is coming around Rs 54000. Academic Materials and uniforms are not included in it. Told us that academic wise it's ok.
Any other schools which we've missed out? Please share your feedback.
I had also shortlisted few schools from your list and got the applications for the same - Camford International School, KSIRS and Manchester International School.
I am in a dilemma to opt for CBSE/IGCSE syllabus. Let me know if you have any more info on these schools.
