Fees for Kennedy falls for around 1.8 to 2.0 for UKG.
So for Std 1 to 5 could be mostly same or nearby this figure. You can expect around 2.0 lakhs with 10-15% hike every year.
Hi Manoj (mkbhatta),
Yes you are right about Kennedy fees.
I will cost 1.92 including everything for 1st year which includes 75k of donation/admission fees. From 2nd yr onwards it could be close to 1.25 lakhs + 10 to 15% hike. Feedbackwise, Kennedy is good school but fees for 1st year will be higher.
When you compare Kennedy with Silver Oaks, I will recommend Silver Oaks which is far better in child's overall growth and other parent's feedback. DPS Miyapur is not that preferred currently since it's launched last year only with no much value for money facilities or activities. It's distance from our homes and bus pickup timings is also a big concern for parents due to which many drop DPS from their preferred schools list.
Education, sports and overall growth wise the recommendation goes in this sequence- 1st Silver Oaks, then Kennedy and then DPS Miyapur. But Silver Oaks already closed their admission process, may be they may start again if those who didn't paid fees and those seats will be opened up again in Jan end or Feb start. Whats your criteria for your kid?
Hi Swathi (pradhyu),
Which std/class you looking for your kid?
For induction, they will invite all parents who applied online. After that they conduct written test and interview with parents. In that they decide whom to select and whom to reject if applications are more. But generally 50% parents come after getting confirmation. So you can expect that your kid can get admission if your desperately looking for Silver Oaks only.
Just keep following-up with school since they will invite again new parents or previously rejected parents if selected parents don't turn up to pay fees.
Financially for 1st yr and onwards Silver Oaks comes less than Kennedy. There is no 1 time donation in Silver Oaks but they are charging 12.4k every year. Management is not good for Kennedy towards addressing parents issues whereas Silver Oaks will at least listen and try to resolve. Because in school life, kids will be getting 1000's of issues where parents need to complaint or talk to principal, teachers, bus drivers, transport mgt, etc. etc. depts. which is more approachable in Silver Oaks and not in Kennedy which is very rude and insult parents many a times, as per feedback given in this forum from many parents. Education wise Kennedy and Silver Oaks stand equal but you will need to look into other aspects as well like fees, distance, bus timings, bus pickup point (most-most important) since this is daily 2 times activity as transport mgt are rude and will ask you to come to distance location to pickup, not near your home. This is consume your approx. 1 hrs in a day waiting at pickup and drop points.
Think in detail on many other things like what all sports will kids do? I asked Kennedy, they told that outdoor activities are only after 5th std until then only indoor activities. I didn't expected that no outdoor for young kids when they need out environment most. Think wisely & minutely.
Swathi (pradhyu), yes you can get for your 1st std kid. Just followup with principal or admission manager by visiting the school. Else they will soon open for other parents since not all parents pay fees since either some are still thinking or some have got other schools or some apply just to try.
Did you pay fees in Silver Oaks? When was the last date given to you.
If you want to select 1 out of both, I would recommend Silver Oaks as compared to Kennedy.
Hi Manoj, how did you request the school for extension? Did they give you official confirmation that they can wait till 19th?
Most probably they allowed you till 19th because from 20th onwards they are going to invite either new set of parents or those who are interested but were either rejected earlier or following-up with the school for admissions.
Manoj, did you request to admissions email or which email id? What reason you justified to the school for extension? I had send email to admission manager but she didn't replied me yet.
I haven't got admission yet, apart from Silver Oaks. Trying for DAV but chances are very very very less since there are hardly any vacancy. So thinking to go to Silver Oaks only.
Any idea how many seats would be vacant as of now? Any possibility of any more admissions ?
How did the school gave confirmation or invitation?
