My kid is studying in Ganges for the past 3 years. We joined her in 1st class and now studying 3rd grade.
I feel the school is good in terms of teaching, sports and infrastructure.
She likes going to school and never really complained.BUT, they are increasing the tuition fee every year exponentially.
When I joined her in grade I in 2013, the tuition fee was Rs 60,000. Now it is 1,05,000 for new admission.
There is no admission fee but they are including everything in tuition fee.
Last few years they gave 10% discount
on tuition fee if paid in full during start of the year. They removed that option this year.
Lunch and snacks mandatory in school - Rs 28000
And all usual extras like transport, uniforms & books.
So for Grade I
Tuition Fee - 1,05,000 - Mandatory :-)
Lunch+Snacks - 28,000 - Mandatory
Transport - 20,000 approx - optional
Books & Dresses, shoes - 15000 approx
Caution deposit - 10,000 - refundable.
Extra charges for annual day, sports day and any competitive exams.
Total >= 1,75,000
If you are an IT employee and can afford these fees for 2 kids, I think its a good school :-)
I am thinking of going back to traditional schools like Vignan/Vikas for 6th grade.
Here are the TUITION fee details for EXISTING
students for 2016.
For new students
, they are charging Rs 10,000 more
for every grade.
Pre-Primary I & Pre-Primary
Juniors (Grade 1,II,III)
Middle (Grade IV,V,VI &VII )
Seniors (Grade VIII, IX & X)
(1,06,350 + 4,200 Lab fee)
