Good observation s.. I think its a good idea to put down these points/suggestion s in their website(feedback)
I agree with your assessment of the Vista Schools in Hyderabad. It is a good school with modern new age facilities and a very interesting curricula designed by Pearson. My son is in the 5th Standard. And he really enjoys the in-class activities that takes place and it has tremendously helped his confidence and his academics. Teachers are very helpful and knowledgeable. They use a lot of new technological products which are very helpful if you want your kids to be to at par with the world's progress. Extra curricular activities are well defined and fun for the children.
My son has really come to like this school and we shifted from Bangalore and had our doubts about the schools in the area but Vista school is a very good modern school. Definitely worth visiting the campus and talking to the Principal/teachers.
I have a serious concern with the hygiene in the school. The wash rooms are not maintained at all. I have atleast complained 5 times in these few months but the management doesnt seem to bother. I am already in search of other schools for my 2nd grade daughter.
Last week I went to check for new admission. They said 1:20 ratio. While during in rounds I noticed all classes have filled with 29/28.check their black boards.
especially lower classes have high strength, may be some demand off late.
Definitely professionalism is lacking. Looks like school strength is picking up and with time, but I don't see that they are prepared for that.
Staff seems to be catching adamant behavior slowly. Though it is not reached to top end schools, but especially Principal (lady) is on her high !!!. Behaved like we are there for asking for free seat. LoL
Be careful, they say the offered discount are changed and now is less from today! They were least bothered to their word.
Though many people say good infrastructure, I don't see any thing other than small modern benches and projector in each room. I think infrastructure means good books, labs with equipment/art/models to explain the subject is seriously lacking. like a every street crush, they have pasted one or two small posters in each class room. I saw one in 4th class and it seems to be like LKG/UKG standard one. Seems the infrastructure is just to showcase. it is not prepared to serve such high strength students. I see some musical instruments, but learned from student of that school (neighbor kid who goes there) there is their music teacher also does not know that instrument. LOL
Since school is new (few years old) everything seems to appear nice. may be we will fall in trap of that, or really worth stuff ?
though pearson's brand, I felt they must have flooded with good library with all magazines. I see KV has more books from that publisher than this school. May be the school Is just selling place of their products !
Worst is their management..had to face last year..once your kid is in..they don't care at all...a very interesting truth..if you write in diary anything for class teacher it would be heard immediately (because it all about fear of getting feedback)..but if you write anything to management...gone...even if the class teacher forwards that to management..they dont care..they will make to visit their campus even for small thing and that too with so many follow ups.
If you interact with their management section..the accountant, transport, those who look into arranging dresses, books..you will get the feel like interacting with government clerks...horrible..but you face all this once your kid is in.
Some parents would say... never any complain as no one cares ....its a school with a kind of approach..don't get any wrong feedback...so everyone focus is to avoid that....that's all....
Dear Vista Management / Vista Parents,
The transportation fee is quite high compared to all other schools
For 5-10 KMs distance it is
In Vista school --- Rs. 21700/-
In vikas school ----- Rs. 15300/-
In Samashti School- Rs. 17000/-
In Narayana School --- Rs.13500/-
It is my suggestion to the pearson management to review and revise the transportation fee to Rs.13000/- to get more admissions.
My suggestion to parents to insist the management for revising the transport fee, which is highest among all the schools.
For higher grades, there the strength is very less as of now.
They got basketball, tennis courts.
They charge additional 600/- for sports extra.
Skating is there between two blocks open area.
Existing parents feedback is ok..ok compared to others.
There are several apartments in nallgandla area...in affordable to luxury range near by.
I have my kid going to that School and the worst experience ever. My kid is in 2nd standard now and the English teacher there speaks pathetic English. My daughter comes home and talks to me about her mistakes. if you can, please watch their annual day celebrations on You tube. It talks everything about the standard of the school. Except for the Principal, none spoke decent English. their English teacher hosted that and she was the worst. The guests of honor were no better too.
Sports and other activities are not given its due importance. Skating and music classes are conducted irregularly for name's sake. Kids do not learn anything.
The strength increases as the Tuition fees is less compared to other schools in that area. Other than that, worst school ever....
I do not recommend that school to any other parent. I am having my kid move out of that school this year.
Which school you are looking to shift to
