http://www.openminds.in - Their website indicates "Open Minds, Hyderabad" - so it seems their school is going to open soon or so it seems !

Hi, from their website, this school looks very good.anybody's kid going to this school. since this is new school, if parents can provide feedback, it will be really helpful.

sar1113 2014-01-01 10:59:48


I have been to their kollur campus . They offer integrated curriculum(CBSE + Cambridge).The campus is very good. Here are some of the details

1. As of now the student strength is 65 kids(*overall)
2. Fee structure details
Onetime Fee 50K(*donation) + 10K(*refundable deposit) + 5(Registration
Annul Fee 1.5L (*includes food and stationary) + 30K for transportation.
3. They are slight flexible on onetime fee and the they are willing to offer discount on the tution fee in the subsequent years.
4. 8-10% annula hike/rise in the feeds.
They really have invested good amount of money on the campus.
* the only constraint is the distance and their current student strenght.

1. School is built in 13 acres and NCC is the management.
2. Have separate blocks for primary, middle n secondary and Indoor activities
3. All classrooms are digitized and equipped with centralized AC. Have separate classrooms for arts&craft,music, dance,yoga....
4. Students strength is not more than 25 per class.
5. As of today, total strength of the school is around 200.
6. Fees is nominal, coming around 80K +30 K transport for PP1

Hi all,
Me too looking for options for my child to get in to standard 1, from infrastructure point of view Birla Open minds are not comparable with any other schools in Hyderabad . It’s very impressive and Principle is taking time to explain all the concerns/queries of the parents ...

the biggest concern is distance and fees.... i stay in Aparna Sarovar Nallagandla and the distance to school is 12 km and takes 25 min ...

Infrastructure -Already in place
Birla brand - People in India can recognize the Birla Brand unlike any other schools in Hyderabad which came up recently
Teachers-Students ratio: 1:15
Dedicated activity rooms: Unlike other schools for every activity separate rooms already available

Teachers: Qualified teachers unlike makeshift arragement...(claimed by the school)

Distance: It is in remote place, incase of emergency if you want to pick the child only mode of transport is personal vehicle there are no auto's or buses available
Fee: Higher side as compared to other recent international schools

Registration- 5000
Deposit-10000 (refundable)
Admission fee- Currently getting exempted fully for corporates)
Tuition fee: 70,000
Annual Fee-40000
Food-30000 (Breakfast and Lunch)
Trasport-30000 to 35000
The fees includes stationery and books , event fees etc etc
No other extra fee apart from Uniform cost...

I see that Annual fee and food cost is very higher side so in total comparison to any other schools annually we need to pay INR 50000 more than any other schools (Manthan, Phonex Green, DPS etc)

Number of Students â€" For the year 2014-15 they are expecting 100 plus students - so in a positive note i think they put all the efforts to get the name and personal attention may be there (Teacher student connect-which currently principle is claiming one of the most important factor )

I am considering for my kid for this school and at the same time i am trying to negotiate on the fees further if incase we can get it ….

Why did you chose Open Minds over Manthan as I see in one of the forums you liked Manthan and said you will go for it?
Did you find Open Minds better than Manthan and pls tell in which aspects?
