Any feedback on CLAPS international school?
I vidited the Sancta Maria school yesterday and found it good. Do you anyone whose kids are going there and thier feedback.
Yes ... One of my husband's friends who returned from US have put their kids there ... One is in PP2 and the elder is in Grade 4 i guess ... We have actually taken our decision based on their feedback since they are very happy with the school ... Their kids enjoy the activites and the school very much ... So once my son starts goin ... i hope he will like it ... and I just hope our decision is rite ... I will be in a better position to give a feedback by the time you start the hunt again next academic year ... :)
Thank for the info, actually point is that I too visited the school and liked it, my husband wants to send him to that school from this year. One more thing the board part was not clear to me actually what board they said.could you please confirm
Have been reading quite a few good comments about Hillside Academy. Could anybody give more inputs about this school please ..
I went to their site ... http://hillsideschoolhyderabad.com but they did not have their address / location or even contact number! Is this near Jubilee Hills?
How is the fee structure here?
Pls chk the contact us page in their website ...you have all those details ...
For the fee structure and more feedback pls check the previous posts in this thread itself ... those from pages 31 onwards ... there is a lot of info that is already exchanged and parents who already have taken admission in various classes for their kids.
Their are registered with the University of Cambridge ( CIE) ... they already are a member of the Cambridge Primary Prog ...and seem to be waiting for the secondary also ...probably once they have students in those classes they will have the registration details ... They have plans for Grade 11 & 12 with the same board ... You can check in the CIE website for a listing of the school in their registered list.
Hillside Academy is a good school. Its in Jubileehills, road no 46, Opp Ambedkar university. last week i took admission for my son for 1st class. One of my cousions friends studying in this school 3rd & 6th grade. Its mainly stress free school, extra activities also very good. If you can visit the school u will definately like it. The fee structure is for pp1,pp2 no admission , fee is 47k. They told me they are going to close the admissions on 30th April. So, hurry..
On Saturday, I have completed the admission formalities for my son in HillSide Academy for PP2 class.
Just to answer some of the queries about sudden appearance of this school name this thread (Just my opinion):
- Most of us are unaware or didn't pay much attention to this school (initially)
- Were betting on different popular schools
- Either we/they didn't get Admission or off-late did not like the schools we were looking for
- In these curcumstances, the Hill Side Academy came out as an option and eventually turned out to be a good option for many of the parent who joined their kids.
Hi Priya & others,
Thank you for your responses and links to older pages. I was using an older browser, and was unable to see the second line of the menu which has the Contact Us Link !! Hence the question ..
Will call them tomorrow to find out if admissions are still open ..
Meanwhile .. this might be elementary ... but .. which is better IB or CIE? I am just getting more and more confused with IB / CIE .. ICSE etc... Any links for this?
I am reaching Hyd on Wednesday to sort out admissions .. and I hv Meridian .. GlobalEdge, Sentia, Claps & Hillside on my list...
As I hv not fixed my accomodation yet ... I am open to schools anywhere around 5-7 Kms of Hitech .. Can take up accomodation between the school and Hitech area..
As far as I see it ... both IB and CIE might be almost on the same level ... probably CIE is a step ahead of IB if I am not wrong ... I Read this article somewher recently in the newspaper ... cant recollect which one ... will surely share if I happen to find it in my browse history ...Basically both offer an international outlook in Indian education and both are accepted in most of the countries wordlwide... But we need to keep track of how much this international curriculum might be Indianised in our schools ...
As far as our Indian boards are considered ... ICSE , CBSE , State board ... they still have their own pros and cons ... and I guess the debate continues as to which is better ICSE or CBSE ... Till now it was either Doctor/Engineer which are considered best professions ... But now there are a wide range to choose from and kids are exploring more ... So i believe the curriculam should not matter as long as it gives proper education and enhance their creativity. At the end it boils down to how the kids cope with it , like it and how we as parents help them with their studies ...
Of the schools that you mentioned i only know about Hillside ... which i liked ...
Meridian Banjara Hills is a better option than the HITEC city branch ... CLaps I have no idea at all ... Global Edge i remember someone mentioned in this same thread that they took admission for their kid ... And finally Sentia ... somehow of late I have read only negative reviews about it ... Anyway pls check the schools and make a decision based on ur experience and other reviews of course ...
my son is in little millenium saidabad, that is also very good. Syllabus provided by EDUCOMP is really good for kids overall development.

I need ur help.... Can anybody suggest me wat all schools r available for admission into LKG.... I am coming to India on 30th Apr.....
It would be easy if u can tell the area whr you are looking for schools ...
Hitech/especially near to madeenaguda/banjarahills/jubleehills/
I recently sent an email to Hillside and they r asking me to submit an application.... But i'll be coming on 30th so confused.... Is there any possibility of getting admission after i come?
i am a teacher in an International organisation and I am new to this site. I request if anyone can give me the names of CBSE schools in or around Miyapur/Kondapur/kukatpally for the purpose of admission in grade-2. I prefer the schools with reasonable fees like BVB/DAV/Sanghamitra.... I dont mind if the school is newly established but it shoud be a pure CBSE scool.
i also request the admission status in DAV/Sanghamitra.
Thanks in Advance....
Hi Karuna, I think, you shouldn't have probs with Hillside. It's better you talk to the Principal or Admin-incharge before you come to Hyd.
Hi Lopa1, You could try Sentia or Vikas. I am not aware of admission status in DAV n Sanghamitra for class 2. May be other parents could help u out.
u shudn't hav any prob with Hillside. You can speak to Madhavi and reffer my name definately they'll consider. If u want will speak to her about this. please send me details which class ur seeking..
Thanks allll for ur response....
@Raja.... She will be 4yrs in August so planning for joining her in LKG.....
Thanx for your suggestion, but I ve already enquired in vikas nd sentia, actually I am not impressed with the fees structure in those schools. Could u pl. give the details of sanskriti school kondapur and hillside academy....
Hillside academy already mentioned in previous pages. fees is 47,000 & admission is $30,000(from 1st class only)
Can anyone provide me feedback on Kangaroo Kids Madhapur, Phoenix Greens and Rockwell International as I am planning to put my daughter in Nursery.
You seem to be so much involved in the school discussions and I would like to get your inputs and your help in securing school admission for my 6 year old for Grade 1. Any advice on the best schools around there and the admission details? I know, it is too late to discuss, as I am moving in the month of May and I would need admission for June 2012. Can you please provide your inputs, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could let me know the list of apartments around that area, as that would give me some ideas what to look for and what to expect. My work location would be in High tech city.
Thanks and regards,
