My son is studying in Pawar Public School-Kandivli. Last year only i took admission in the said school and to my great shock its just turned out to be a very wrong decision. Principal-Mrs. Katyal is soo ....arrogant and head-strong that i personally feel that she will never be able to understand the child's mentality, their emotions, tenderness and parent's concern. In her few circular she used so harsh language that one can't even imagine....she wrote about the concept of study at home through net & no need for schooling...she wrote about parent's concern on syllabus...and what not. She herself made huge mistakes by hurting emotions of parents/ students during sportsmeet, annual day by literally making grandparents stand outside the venue---i show them crying. Also fees charged by them and the quality of parting the education as compared to other school seriously is a questionmark? Their uniform policy, every year to buy so much stationary from a particular shop...really i am fail to understand all such tie-ups. She being the head of the school is like this, other staffs are following her footsteps treating parents very badly. Even i have never seen such a third class bus service where that aayas in the bus just sit in the bus never takes care of children....in fact asks choclates from children. MY ADVISE IS PLEASE DONT TAKE ADMISSION OF YOUR BELOVED CHILD IN ANY SCHOLL, SPECIALLY A NEW SCHOOL, WHERE YOUR CHILD'S EMOTIONS & FUTURE ARE AT HIGH RISK. SCHOOLING FOR A CHILD IS A LIFE TIME MEMORY....LET THEM CHERISH......
thanks aarya for sharing your experience with the Kandivli branch of Pawar public school. do you have any idea if its the same in their Chandivli (powai) branch or you have some different opinion about this branch.
can you please throw some light on this
thanks 4 ur sincere opinion regarding the said school,
any other school in the vicinity thts good.
Its time for admissions and all parents are eager to give best to their children......I am too looking for a good school which is near to my area of Charkop kandivali(W) , neat ,clean ..with gud teaching staff. I started with ICSE syllabus as my priority but now i feel all boards do offer gud curriculum , but its upto teachers how they teach and children how they grasp the knowledge which will actually make our children a responsible citizen and above all have a gud personality. I have come down to 2-3 choices of schools which are in close proximity to my area-
1 . Thakur International at Kandivali
2. Kapole Vidyanidhi
3. Billabong High International, Malad
Any parents who have their children in these schools or have any idea about the staff and overall enviornment abt these schools ...kindly give me the feedback so that I and many other parents like me can make right decision for our wards.
i am scare to licn abt pawar school. bcoz i think for kid to take admision in Bhandup branch. u have any information abt tht branch.
hi to all,
my son is studying in pps kandiwali in 2 std. i feel the school is best. he has overcome his shyness.way of teaching is very good and students are able to understand the concept behind it.itsup to indiudal parents.i m satisfied with pawars curriculum
there a school run by gundecha in kandiwali (e) near thakur village. you can check that out.
you also have oberoi international and ryan international in goregaon (east) and another school run by gokuldham (dont know much about it though)
Does anyone have any further update on the below schools in Borivali West:
1. Pawar Public School
2. Swami Vivekananda International School
Unlike in Borivali / Kandivali East, there seems to be a dearth of gud schools in Borivali West. The schools which have received positive reviews like Rustomjee, Dr Pillai, Ajmera have very high fees because of their being IGCSE board...which I feel is not worth it...if you don't intend to send your child abroad for college education....
JBCN seems a good option but its high fees are at par with all the above IGCSE schools...despite being a ICSE-affiliated school....
Just don't know what to do...all schools seem to have positive and negative comments about them...any revert from u'll will be really helpul....
did u manage to get any reviews about the above mentioned schools? i m also looking for schools in teh same vicinity and considering all the 3 schools mentioned by u. please revert if u have ny reviews about them. it will be really very helpful.
I have received no feedback yet from the forum. Although my wife did visited Pawar school personally to check with the students and parents and gauge their feedback. She got mixed responses...some were satisfied with the school and its teachers...some were little apprehensive about the slow teaching at pre-primary levels...she also felt that the school did not have a mixed cosmopolitan crowd...majority of the students were gujarati...though that is not a major decisive point in my opinion....One thing is certain...if you don't take admission from nursery at PPS, you will not get admission from Junior KG onwards..since all their Junior KG seats are full from the roll-over nursery batch itself.....the fees at PPS (36K) are definitely reasonable compared to other schools in Borivli....
Have yet to check Swami Vivekanand personally...fees-wise (around 75-80K) it is at par with JBCN or Rustomjee....
I also plan to check Sri Sri Ravishankar which is near National Park...since it has a CBSE board....
For 2014-15 though...we have decided to continue with our current local Nursery Kindergarten School (Blossoms) since it is close-by as well as more advanced in teaching at Pre-Primary levels than the regular schools! Will bear the Junior KG admission headache next year now....
If you happen to visit the above schools or any other schools then please do share your experiences as well...
I have hear pawar only gives to preference to those residing close to the school. Not sure though, i haveheard its a good school, so its on my list. Forms r out on 15 th oct
Is swami vivekanand ssc or icse ? Fees 75-80 k is for ssc ?
hi prem and swatix,
mostly all the schools have preferances for the ones residing closeby. I agree with prem about the mixed reviews of pawar and that is actually increasing the confusion.
Swami vivekanand is icse. but prem are u sure about the fee structure. i think there is some mistake in the figures, however i m not too sure about it. will check and get back to u as one of my acquaintance's child is going to that school.
Besides many schools are not open to admission after nursery, so u better check that before deciding to continue in local kindergarden school. I say so because last year my friend faced a lot of problem seeking admission to juniour kg. She had to find jacks from here and there to secure admission. so please make sure u do not face trouble later on.
Hi yajatmom,R u sure svis is icse? See this link http://www.svischool.com/Gorai/aboutus.htm They say its ssc and starting this year they r planning to start icse Does anyone hv any idea abt this ?
SVIS has started ICSE with this year (2013-14) as per the below circular:
While the school site does not mention the fee structure, the above proposal/circular does give hint of about 30k p.a. However a few of my neighbours whose children are in SVIS had mentioned to me the sum of 70-80K...
Yeah Payal...admission will be difficult from Junior KG onwards...but that is a risk we have calculated deliberatedly...atleast one school (Thakur International - a bit costly but reasonably gud school) will provide admission at that level...my niece was given admission from Junior KG there....
Don't want to delay too much but...don't want to be too hasty as well:)
does anybody know what is the final fee structure SVIS borivali - i have heard that current year (2013-14) was the 1st year of ICSE & fees were 35000 one time fee & 32000 year fee , can anbody confirm what it is for 2014-15
