My daughter has received admission call from both Kalpa (Banjara Hills) and Meridian (Banjara Hills) for class 1. I am in a dilema and need help in decising which school to go for. Can someone help!

Pros on Kalpa :

1) Fees is within budget (Rs. 70,000 p.a. + Rs. 20,000 admission fees.)

2) Teahing as per the concept school teaching ( e.g. Strawberry fields)

Cons on Kalpa:

1) Play field is not very big

2) Class rooms are little small and not bright enough, looks old. ( although have 2 PCs in each class right from class 1).

Pros about Meridian:

1) Excellent infrastructure and classes

2) Recognised by British council for 2012-2015.

3) Prinicipal Mrs. Usha Reddy awareded as national teacher of the year award - 2010 and several other awards from the Govt of AP.


1) Fees more than the budget ( Rs. 1.40 Lacs p.a. + 1.0 Lacs admission fees.)
