Pls. provide feedback about "The Indian Public School" in Coimbatore.How are they functioning,discipline of the students/infrastructure/environment in school and last but not the least the studies part.
It follows IB syllabus which is very difficult to implement, don't know how they are managing. If you want to send your kid outside India for UG, then you could consider it.
please be aware that this school is NOT recognized by the IB board.
i thought i saw some paper advertisement saying they have been recognized? i met a a IB certifier who said it is very difficult to implement the syllabus well in lower classes - structure is minimal, so children may progress with big knowledge gaps? any opinion?
No the school is NOT recognized or authorised by the IB worldwide; Only Good Shepherd,Kodai International,Chinmaya and British Internat are a few recognized schools in TN
I checked the IB website and wrote to them about this schools status and decided not to put my child after reading their reply
I have also heard that the school is being sold out to another party.
Its important that parents are aware of this before risking their childrens"education
thanks - i saw their bus which has the IB sign? surely they cannot put this and run the school without IB's permission?
anyway - I have decided to put my daughter in CS Academy. The setting and the whole package is what I think a school should be.
please check the IB website; this school is not listed
Dear Friends, My kids are in Indian public school. But it is not the good school from my point of view.
1. They don't have any qualified teacher for IB program.
2. Teacher is not having sufficient knowledge about the subject.
3. Teacher teaching easy things in the class, But they are giving tough things to do as a homework.
4. You should have tuition to catch up all the subjects.
5. When I went for the parent teacher meeting. Almost 4 teachers joined just 2 weeks back.
6. When I explained the things about my kids. She is not even listening. She is not even taking notes.
7. This PTM happened 3 times. All the time new teacher, not listening, not taking notes.
8. Chairman Ashok, He always says, he will solve the problem. But he is not.
9. When I explained with the Principal with my issues. She never gets back to me. Same thing continue.
10. One time bus did not even come for the whole day. After 2 hour time. we dropped my kids into the school. No sorry. no communication.
This school is run by business minded people and not educationists.
That is why they promise the world when you want to join and once you have paid that huge fees, they forget all about you.
The goverment should come down heavily on all schools who are run like this
The School is an IB world school. Authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme since March 2012, here is the link to the Ib board web site to prove it.
thanks 4 sharing the link...
i put my son in LKG grade in TIPS kochi campus and highly satisfied with the transformation we could see in him..
My kids go to indian public school too. they are studng there for the past 5 years. The school has come a long way from where they were 5 years ago. The kids like the school and they are constantly improving. I am very happy with the school.
the choice of school is a personal one. one main thing for me is where do the kids go when they finish school? can they compete with the best out there? it is not enough for kids to be happy - they will be very happy in an amusement park too. there has to be extrnal indicators for a schools quality - have the kids succeeded in competitive exams, have they got into good universities, can they speak in public, are their sports skills improving and so forth. the issue with the international schools is that as long as you send kids out of India for undergrad, should be OK (meaning there is a level playing field). but if you want to send them to Indian universities - the chances of them getting into good colleges is low. i dont think i have heard of any international school sending kids to BITS, IITS, Anna university, MMC etc etc. time will tell.
What is good education? Where do you want your kids to be? Do you want them to think on their own and be street smart kids, aware of the outside world and about the ample opportunities that are available out there for them to achieve anything they dream about becoming or doing, or do you want them to be like poultry chicken. You feed them with lessons that they learn and then they produce the same on paper. Most of these kids lack creativity. If only going to IIT or BITS is your goal then I guess this school might not be the right one. I want my kids to know and understand what they learn and be able to explain it in their own words and also be able to apply what they learn. Kids liking the school where they spend most of their day is also very important, that will help them learn better. I know what I want for my kids...... and I am happy with the way they are learning. Yes, I wish my kids will be able to get into Stanford or MIT and I am trying to provide them with the kind of education that will let them achieve it, if they want to go to these universities. As a person who has done my masters in the US and having lived and worked there for 20 years I know what I want from my kids school. You have to choose a school that will best suit your needs. It is not right to bash a school just because it does not suit you.
true - one should not bash any school without attending / knowing the facts. But bashing IITs and BITS and putting Stanford or MIT on a pedastal seems similar.
I study in this school and i notice that they are not teaching well and they say the same thing in the ptm's.I give the verdict as:
Nice education but not good teaching
I give a 3 star rating but please don't join this school.
The what are your children's name and which grade?
my previous reply was to sugve
First of all I am not bashing IIT's and BITS. They are goog colleges to attend and it will be great to get in there. My brother studied in IIT chennai. He did his undergrad and grad school there. I am only taking about the pressure the kids go through to get into these colleges. I think it would be nice to read Chetan Bhagat's (who is an IIT'n) book Five point someone It gives us a look into IIT's and the pressure they go through. It might be a friction book, in which all that is said may not be true, but I feel that there is some truth to it. My point is this, when my kid was in Kindergarden we had a meeting with his classteacher. At the end of the meeting she said this "Don't get me wrong the Indian kids are all very good in math. (She had 6 Indian kids including my son out of 18). When I ask then how much is 2+2 they can answer 4. When the question is straight, they are, way ahead of the class and are able to answer quickly. But when I ask then 2 birds are sitting on a tree and 3 more fly in. Now how many birds are there on the tree they are not able to answer. She said what they learn should also be applied. That is when my perspective really changed in the way I want my kids to study. Look around and ask the same question to the kindergarden kids, I dont know how many will be able to answer, but this is my perspective and my story.
To Aadityau since you study there, you tell me which class you are studing in and your name. I will be happy to meet you in person when I come to school the next time. You are not happy here then there are other schools you can try. I am sure there will be one that suits your need.
I said I would love my kids to get into Stanford or MIT (Every parent has a wish if it happens or not is a different story), but that is my wish as I said I try to provided the best and then it is up to them. I do not want to force them to do anything, but let then know about the options that are available. Secondly I will be happy to if one of my kids get into IIT too. But my personal feeling they cannot handle that pressure. they will have a better chance at stanford or MIT.
IPS is not recognized for MYP by IB worldwide The IB board per se
Is an excellent system but its implementation Indian sxhools hve
Long way to go IB teaching methods need qualified IB teachers
