Need your inputs on International School, Sheikpet. My kid got admission in that School for Class 1, and we will have to pay the fee before 9th, Feb.

We missed Obul Reddy, BVBJH in Lottery. Took the written test in Gitanjali and waiting for the results. Unfortunately, results are on 11th. Hence, we will have to take a call before 9th.

We stay in Attapur and hence, International School is convenient. However, we don't mind moving closer to School if he gets into a good school.

Need your suggestions!

Good day to you all

Hi LK,

Even my kid had got admission in this school for Class 1. And we are also inthe same dilemma ... we r waiting for DPS results to be out on Feb4th ( lucky it will be out b4 9th) ...but we r also looking at Jubilee Public school ...they said they will take admissions for Class 1 around 2nd or 3rd week of Feb which is tooo late ...

As for the school, I see that it is very good for sports and they have a big playground too. The activities also seem to be good. We stay opposite to the school and can hear the school band sing Happy Bday and the Anthem everyday @ 8.30 and it is good .... My neighbour's son studies there in PP2 and she says its good for now as for the studies are concerned ...

If u r keen on waiting for Gitanjali school or any other I am sure you can talk to them. They can give you an extension. Last year too my son got admission there. We told we would not be able to join for this year since i couldnt find a day care ... They gave us time till June to make arrangements and join ... The academic year starts from March itself ... and again resumes in June after summer vacation.

Hi SrinivasS ...

We havent yet decided ... Planning to get an extension @ International School ...

We just checked out Sancta Maria School also today ... Awesome school but on a higher side ... They have waived off the one time admission & Caution fee for this year as part of their promotional plan ... Even then it comes to about 1.79 L (tution, mess, activity fees ) + Trasnport  for Class 1 per year (around 18 K ) ...

 Hi Lk,

      I saw your discussion regarding International school shaikpet. Even my son got admission in this school. I am looking for info. like how good is this school in extra curricular activities, education and Spoken English. If you have any info. plz plz let me know i am very much confused.






Priyaraj2005 2012-02-06 17:45:08


Hi Arshiya,

The reviews are that the school is very good for sports ....

Education wise ...I know a couple of parents who are quite happy with their child's progress ... and said that their child's teachers were also very approchable and gave them time to time updates about their child's progress ... In fact they rated it better than JPS in terms of personal attention ... of course evry parents view will be different ... And at the end of it all we need is that both child and parent shud be happy with the school ...

As for the English ... I think since it is ICSE , they should definitely have a grip over the language ... I have heard some higher class girls conversing in gud English when I visited the school ... So its again the circle of frends that they make i guess ...

So I would suggest u visit the school, talk to any of the teachers and any higher class students as to how they feel abvt the school and then decide ...

 Hi Priyaraj,

          Thanks a lot for your quick response and valuable suggestion. I was very much confused but I think now i can make up my mind to join my son in this school.

 Hi Arshiya,

Sorry about the delayed response. I was off for a while. 

Like Priya said, the school has more emphasis on extra-curricular activities. And the overall feedback is good. 

I would have spoken to good number of parents and i didn't hear anything negative about the school. 


Thanks for your advice of putting a request to the Principal for an extension. We have got an extention till this month-end. Now, we will wait for Gitanjali Results. If that doesn't happen then we will go ahead with International School. 

Good day!
