Finally school hunt is over for me. I got my daughter's admission to GlobalEdge school in Madhapur :)
Congratulations!! Sonia. :)
I am new to Parentree. Does any one know about The Creek Planet school .There are 2 braches for Creek planet school one is at miyapur( which they are calling SEEDS) another is near bowrampet( which is main campus). I want to join my son into nursery which one is better.
Finally the school hunt is over ...My husband won over me ... :) ... Its Sancta Maria now for my son ... Goin this Friday to complete the admission formalities..
Couldnt go for Hillside as it does not have transport facility till Tellapur area in Lingampally ... We have plans of relocating to that area to our new flat which wud be completed mid next year ..
Watever it is ... I just hope our decision is correct and our son shud love his future school ...
Congrats Priya.... would you pls share fee details for Sancta maria !!!
Congrats and All the Best Priya. :)
We are relocating to Hyd in June and i am in touch with Sancta Maria for my son's admission in grade 3.
i am sure while selecting this school you would have noticed the second building construction and various sports facilities. is construction going on in full swing?
How do you rate this school in terms of sports facilities ?
Yes ...we did have a look around the school and the class rooms too and must say the infrastructure is impressive ... And yes the second building construction is in full swing and we expect it wud be ready for the academic year ... As far as we see the sports and activities play a major role in their curriculum ... We had been keeping a track on it for the part few months and saw that they had quite a lot of activities this past year and hope it wud continue in the years to come ...
I am not very sure what all sports they offer but i think they hv provision for all major ones like basketball , tennis, cricket etc. and also the indoor games ...
I have been looking for a school who give quality 'education' w/o luxury. Unfortunately most of the times both are combines in the new schools. It is only the old schools which separated the two. People also confuse between convenience and luxury. Distance and School transport is convenience and not luxury.
To my surprise, there is a new school Epistemo Global (Vikas Leadership School) in Nallagandla (near to Tellapur) which is getting ready for the upcoming academic year. It says no A/C in busses. Yet to visit campus and check if their classrooms are A/C free. Will post more details by next week.
I have been hearing only positive reviews about Vikas (the Bachupally branch) from my relatives so far.
PS: I did not join my kids in Bachupally because of the locality. My nephew studied for 2 years in Bachupally and has been suffering with lot of skin and other allergies. Bachupally is an industrial area and lot of pharmaceutical companies have been contaminating ground water. With my nephews experience, I have always preferred to stay away from schools in Bachupally area (no matter how good they are).
I have joined my Son in PP1 in HillSide after seeing the comments from Priya, Deepti & Vijay and personally visiting the school.
Only drawback I have seen so far is management changes. Root -> Manipal -> again now to Pearson Group?
I am hoping these management changes will add value to our kids education.
Thank You Vijay.....Deepti...Priya for your valuable comments about Hillside..
Welcome to the club Sariram. :)
Hi Sariram, would like to know is Hillside still giving admissions for PP1. I want to join my daughter, what is ur opinion abt this school.
I took admission 2 weeks ago. They said they will be taking admissions. Please call them up, visit the school, take a tour, ask them your queries, especially on the management changes (Pearson now taking over this year) and then decide. Personally I liked the school.
thank you Sariram for reply. will contact the school for update on admissions
As you have already completed the admission formalaties for sancta maria, pleas elet me know the how much it costed.
We are yet to complete the admission formalities ... We wud probably go this week ... However we have confirmed the seat for Grade 1. The fee was around 1.69 L all inclusive like Tuition, Activityfee, mess, books & stationary ... transport is around 18K for the maximum belt ... No admission fee for this year.
Will let you know the exact fee once I finish the admission process.
Thanks Priya but fee seems to be too much as in oakridge also it 2lakhs including everything and cmpared to oakridge sancta is new school
Yeh ... Sancta is comparitively a new school ... But it seems to be promising ... The first reason being ... the school is new but the society managing it had been in the education business for long ... and is a well established soceity ... St.Marys Group of Institutions ... So we belive the focus would definetely be there ... Moreover, we heard they also have plans to start an international level B-School down the lane ... So with all this ... we thot their exp. in running a premeire educational institute shud be better compared to any of the other similar schools ... Finally we have a couple of frends whose kids are already goin ther ... so my son wud hv company too since one of them wud be in his class from June :) ..
Somehow based on some reviews that I got ... I did not prefer Oakridge though the fee structure is the same as SM ... some how i felt the quality of education not on par ... So is the case with Sree Nidhi too ...
My son is in nuresery I am keeping him in Esperenza only for one more year and will try next year.
Dear Friends, I'm looking for Admission to PP2 for my Son and observing this site as a passive member.
After seeing the reviews from "VijayV, DipsRoy and others", I called the school today morning and came to know about few vacancies for PP2. Immediately, I visited the school, and took the application form for PP2. I shall make a decision soon :-)
Infact, I saw this school in the month of Dec Y2011 :-) but was so tied up with a hope (for some reason) to get into JHPS. JHPS have not called for admissions to PP2 yet and not sure how much i have to pay to *buy* a seat for my son.
Most likely i might be inclined towards Hill Side ... Thank you all for sharing your observations and inputs.
Just as an information:
For people living around Madhapur/Kondapur and looking for admissions to playgroup/Nursery onwards - I suggest "Kangaroo Kids". I heard good reviews about this school. Do your own research though !!!
I did not opt for this because they have till PP2 only. They have plans to start from 1std from next year - but they have not finalized about the location.
Today i finished Admission formalities in Hillside Acadamy for my son. School is very good in extra activities and academics. My son got admission in DPS Gachibowli also but i don't want to join him there. Don't want to encourage these donation system. All most all schools r in Hyd doing the business, very few only preffering for education. One of my freinds also came back from US with us and they joined their kids in Hillside. I heard good feedback about the shcool and met principal also. I liked this school very much. At last our hunting is over....
Congrats Raj...good job!!
