Thought of sharing information on the schools we recently visited for Grade II admission for our kid in academic year 2019-20.
Rockwell international school, kokapet: School has got a good infrastructure and they have a big campus. Fees for this year comes close to 2.25 lac (tuition fee + Transport only) for grade II.They took our kid for an interaction and later we were offered seat. I interacted with couple of parents during my stay at school and got a mixed feedback. I was told that teachers are good for lower grades but not the case for higher grades.
Epistemo Global school, Nallagandla: Again, this school has got a very big campus. But the approach road to school (around 500 mts) is pathetic. Admin staff are really cordial and took us to campus visit. They have decent ground and surprisingly swimming is made mandatory for students. I got to know from one of the previous threads that the school principal changes very frequently. And to justify that, we had an interaction with the new principal where she explained us their teaching methodology very patiently (almost for 1 hour). For grade II admission, they conducted exam for our kid before we were offered seat. However, i see a lot of negative feedback in this portal and now we are not sure whether to proceed or not. School fee + Transportation for Grade II comes to (1.5 lac + 36 K) 1.86 lac and one time deposit of 15k.
Manthan school, Tellapur: School is spread across in 5 acres. They too conducted exam for our kid and later we were offered seat. We had a decent interaction with principal. During the interaction, we understood that their major emphasis is on academics and hence only basics were taught in other activities. Emphasising on academics is fine but i believe there should be equal focus on sports & other activities too. Considering, the hefty fee they charge (comes around 2.15 only for tuition fee & Transportation) their ground is too little. Got to know that food is made optional this year. We noticed that they are constructing another building and it will be available by June this year.
Meru International school, madinaguda: School is good in terms of infrastructure. But heard few negative comments from existing parents on the quality of teachers. Hence we decided not to consider it.
As of now, we've short listed Manthan & Rockwell and trying to zero in one between them.
Appreciate if you've any suggestions.
Between Manthan and Rockwell, in my view Manthan is good in academics. Rockwell may be good in Extra curricular. btw, my both kids go to Manthan-Madhapur.
