 Hey all,

Well am looking for a good school for my daughter..we are shifting to kandivali east this year..n am really confused about the schools..Mixed suggestions for the schools in thakur village..Gundecha or Thakur public..or Lokhandwala foundation or Vibgyor...What do you say...those whose kids are going to the above schools..which is better? So far,Gundecha looks Ok for me..any Suggestions about this one?

My personal suggestion would be to go with Gundecha or Lokhandwala if you are staying in Thakur village/Lokhandwala township.Vibgyor has a lot of negative feedback.My daughter was in Thakur Public and I would personally not recommend the same.I have shifted schools due to the same after one year of TPS.If you are looking at ambience, then TPS would do well but, if you are looking at academics, then Gundecha and Lokhandwala are good.But, each one has their opinion and would suggest asking other people too and make your own decision.What may be good for one need not be the same for another.Good luck !!

Lokhandwala school encourages children to enrol in activities of interest based on their houses.They have 4 houses and a house master and kids can enrol for debating,singing,dance,sports or any activity of choice and every week they are encouraged to participate as a team.They have extracurricular activities after school for 2 hours and parents can enrol them in the same if interested.Some parents have also enrolled their kids in Sports Authority training and the school has many state level champions be it sports or computers and the results of the school is very encouraging with many students above 75-80% and none below it.

Gundecha too has facilities like enrolling the child in helen brody's classes and the principal is favoured among the parents for her personal commitment in turning kids around be it studies or sports.They too have a similar system as Lokhandwala and the school is well known for singing,personality development,dance etc.As Thakur village has a lot of sports facilities, kids normally enroll either in Evershine club or the training at Thakur shyamnarain school in the evenings.Skating and karate are taught in  the evening at Thakur shyamnarain school by private teachers.Both these schools have adapted a novel way of testing if children understand the teaching well by tests after every lesson where the teacher as well as the student are tested.Kids from both these schools are very friendly with their classmates and try and help each other.As they actively involve in intraschool debates,sports where they are playing for their houses, they are very confident as individuals and the houses compete not only on sports but also on all aspects like in-situ speaking, General knowledge,etc on a weekly basis.

IshaAnn!Saw your comments.My children study at LFS and teaching is average.They are enrolled in tuitions to keep up with their classmates.Many of their classmates are in tuitions too.Not many parents reveal their problems but agree with what you said because I went through a very bad experience with the teaching staff and management and yes the kids are demotivated.

Thanks sooooooooooo much!

Comparision between Gundecha and Lokhandwala school is great!



Please accept my invitation as friend


Pinkky 2011-08-04 18:59:43



Can you add yuur comments .

What do you feel is better ?

Gundecha or LFS



IshaAnn 2011-08-11 10:42:50



Thank you for your comments.The comparison is based on feedback by people.It is not my own experience.The recent feedback on Lokhandwala school stands changed due to messages received.But, all said and done better to check before admitting your child to any school.Gundecha has a lot of positive feedback .

Thank you for your invitation,though, would like to let it pass.


Sorry for your experience.You would know better having your children studying in that school.
