Dear Parents,

We are shifting to Sainikpuri (Secundrabad, Hyderabad) from next year onwards. Need your expertise in suggesting a school for my kid (boy) for Class II. 

Priorities:
1. A school which focusses on all-round development of a Kid (especially in earlier years (till class V) which as I personally think is supercritical)).
2. More focus on personality development, making the kid confident & conquering the stage fear. 
3. Involving the kid more in extracurricular activities, 21st-century skills, practical learning like STEAM etc.
4. Closer to Sainikpuri, Secundrabad. Don't want the kid to travel much considering the Hyderabad traffic.

Few schools which are in the vicinity & on which we have got decent feedback:

1. Gitanjali Devashala.
2. St. Andrews.
3. Johnson Grammar.
4. Oakridge Gachibowli.
5. Indus Universal School. 
6. Others (pls recommend).

Request for a prompt revert as we are totally confused.


Best,
Ashish

Recently i visited Oakridge Gachibowli campus . Along with  the studies they are focusing more on  personality development, extracurricular activities,making the kid confident & conquering the stage fear. But only concern is fee is very high (3.5+ lakh for PP1)

@Ashishbansal - please consider distance while deciding the school especially for younger kids, it's exhausting to travel 4 hours a day..Sainikpuri is quite far from Gachibowli area

Hi Ashish,
My kids are studying in JGS-LB Nagar. Its very good school, with very nominal fee-structure.
But JGS-LB nagar branch has it campus in LB Nagar till V grade. From VI grade, the campus will be in Kuntloor, which is 12 KM's from LB Nagar. I would prefer JGS-ICSE Hubsiguda / Nacharam, which is very good (As my cousin's kids studied). This is better for you as you live near Sec'bad. ECA are also well maintained here.
DPS Nacharam is also better option.
Thanks,Madhu

Dear All,

Thanks for your valuable inputs. 

Post your feedback and my discussion with others, my list includes: 

1. Gitanjali Devshalla.
2. St. Andrews (Bowenpally)
3. St. Andrews (Maredpally)
4. Johnson Grammar Habsiguda
5. Billabong High International.

However, there are mixed reviews from everyone so still couldn't decide. As mentioned, my primary requirement is for development of intra personal skills, overall skills development, sports and less distance from home. 

I am plannjng to stay nearby Vayupuri, Sanikpuri or Cherlapally. If required, I can relocate and shift nearby to these schools.

Looking forward for a prompt support.

Ashish

Hello, Please go with Foster Billabong International school (SAKET). Very near from Sainikpuri. Regards Shailaja
 

AshishBansal 2018-11-26 14:51:44

 

Hello,

Thanks for your prompt revert Shail7.

Can you pls share with us more inputs on why Foster Billabong will be the right choice & not others? Our top priority will definitely be the school, if required we can shift to a place to the school (if the distance is a concern). What is your feedback on HPS (Begumpet)? In which school, you have enrolled your kid? Are there any recommended schools from your side, which I have missed?

The reason, we have aleady burned our hands by shifting our child at NASR Boys School this year. 

Best,
Ashish

Hello Sir,We have recently shifted towards nagole and looking at the reviews i have taken admission in Johnson grammar Nacaharam (CBSE) and today iam not at all happy. . Earlier i was in sainikpuri and my son studied till 5th at Billabong High international.i always loved the way they took care of the children, great Ambience,extra curricular is too good.5 day week.yearly concerts.and more over counsellor Mrs.Shaila Ravindran is so sweet. Now I'm searching for a good school and trying hard to get the admission at HPS Ramanthapur for 7th grade.If you are getting admission at HPS begumpet please go ahead without any 2nd option, if you dont get in HPS then second option is Foster Billabong's international . All the best Regards Shailaja

Hello Ma'am,

We have visited Foster Billabong (Saket) , HPS (Begupeth) & Gitanjali Devshala today and plan is to visit St. Andrews (Bowenpally) & Refel ford tomorrow. 

HPS begumpeth - Forms will be out by Feb.
Foster Billabong (Saket) - School tour was done & at length discussion with Class coordinator & councellor. Have some doubts, need to discuss with you.
Gitanjali Devshala - Forms are out. The assessment is on Saturday for 2.5-3hrs. Only 4-5 seats on offer. 
Global India International School - As per them, the school will be too far for us. So, better to drop this option or we need to shift near the school.

Can you pls ping on my Whatsapp 9927028566 or my email ID - ashish1.bansal@gmail.com ; shwetabansal1711@gmail.com.

AshishBansal 2018-11-30 07:51:57

 

Any feedback on Gitanjali schools (like CBSE / IB) branch apart from ICSE branch i.e. Devshala? I came to know, there is lot of pressure on students for studies...during interaction with couple of students they also mentioned the same that they need to slog...bit confused...as I don't want to put lots of pressure on kid at this age...
