Future Kids is definitely a very good school. I know a few kids from our Aprt who study here.
If you are okay with both your kids studying in a different school for sometime, you could go ahead with Future Kids for your younger son and later on try for your elder one as siblings are given first preference. Incase there is no vacancy, you will have to try next year. Pl talk to the admin-incharge to check if there are any chances for this yr as well as next yr.
Another option is Phoenix Greens, where you can have both the kids in the same school. Though new, you will find many satisfied parents. As your child is in Class 2, you don't have to worry about the higher grades. It will surely pick up with each year. It would be easier for you to have both of them in the same school.
If budget is not a constraint, Glendale would be an ideal choice for both of them.
You could wait for other parents to share their thoughts and see what they say about higher grades in PG.
If you aren't able to get any feedback from other parents for higher grades, try talking to parents of Phoenix Greens in the campus as you need to decide by tomorrow...:)
All The Best !
I don't suggest phoenix school , they are very commericial and they don't listen parents suggstions and feedback.transport department in the school is very careless
Just wanted to update that we finally decided on Future Kids and paid the admission fees for our younger one(PP2) y'day. We will keep trying for the older one whenever there is an opportunity.
We have heard lot of good reviews on Future Kids from Parents, Kids studying(4th, 6th and 10th grades) everyone talking about the overall development in kids (Individuality, Confidence, Develop thinking Ability) with good balance on academics and activities.We met few parents in the open house whose kids were studying for almost 9-10 years in FK and did not have second thoughts on changing their schools. Another thing which is worth mentioning about FK class rooms and campus is that their campus is more natural and not fancy and their class rooms have been facilitated with lot of open windows(without glass) for natural light and wind.
Below is the Fee breakdown for Future kids fees for PP2 for 2013-2014.
One time fees :
Admission : 60,000
Caution Deposit(Refundable) : 15,000
Fees : 12,000
Food, Material, Stationary, Activities, Computer Lab : 46,000
Library/Lab : 1,500
Transport : (21-25 K based on the distance)
So basically, the total fees = 60K + Transport(21-25k) + ( 6-8k for Dress, Shoes, Bag).For the next academic year, there might be 8-10% increase on the fees( on 12K) which is lot better than various other schools.
Two days ago, we were more inclined on PG , but after the campus visit , we changed our opinion. Their campus and facilities were really good. We were filling out Application form in the reception and two people (school admin/reception staff) were talking in local language and one of them was yelling at an school boy on something related to the teacher's responsibility and we were sitting 3 meters away from them with principal room being 5-7 meters away.
The thing we didn't like was that they were not at all worried about parents being there and if there are any such things they could have sorted it out offline/instead of yelling. Obviously, this is not the whole reason on why we did not opt for PG. We just wanted to share this to everyone. We also heard from a PG parent who returned from US few years back and is upset due to below par communication standards set in PG and the teachers on not being trained enough which affected the English speaking abilities for their kids due to the communication channels used in PG. Another thing we observed, is that PG has A/C Buses for transport and A/C class rooms which is not close to the reality of the world and kids can become more sensitive and get used to A/C.
Thank you Mickey for all your help and suggestions.
We live in Kondapur near Chirec.
I am new to this forum. I will be moving to Hyderabad in a couple of months. My children will go to 11th and 5th grades in June. Considering schools which have 11th/12th and eliminating those with very high fees, I have zeroed in on Glendale and Future kids. I do not see much information on Glendale for higher classes. Do you have any information on the academic standards/results etc for these schools for higher classes? I am hoping to have both in the same school
@info Hi I am also looking for admission in Future Kids for my kids in Nursery and class I if you could please give me the feedback
Admissions might have been closed for the next academic year(2014-15) for pre primary. During the open house we attended on Jan 7th, they mentioned that they do not have any vacancies from grade 1 and above . You need to contact the school just to double check and if you get lucky.
Can anyone pls provide feedback on samashti international school,kollur campus ? The school is managed by NCC and invested lot of amount on infrastructure but not sure how the academics and teaching would be...can anyone pls throw some light on this school
@Info, please let us know which grade your kids are in now at Future Kids school. Also your experience with school. Thank you.
Hello @info, Could you please share you feedback on the future kids school? are you happy with the overall development of the kid? I am considering joining my kid in future kids for 2021-2022 for nursery (jubilee hills campus).
Appreciate your response.
