 Excellent school. My son Yash is in 2nd standard. I am very happy. Day boarding. Reasonable fees. 5star ambience. Only problem is it has a small playground.  


bijal 2009-10-15 21:40:19

Hi Kalpesh, Bijal -

My son is now 3 years old and need to start his admission process.

Heard a lot about Universal High - how is the fee structure ?


sumiths 2009-11-16 15:57:47


Have heard about this school . Do let me know the Teaching level , which BOARD , and the fees structure.

Thanks for your replies... SUMITH

ACP and Sumith, I've already enrolled my son for this school, Its ICSE board and planning to introduce optional IB from 8th grade onwards.

The current fees are 40000/- which are payable in 4 parts throughout the academic year. They do not have any donation or hidden fees at all. Also include 2 meals for kids, which are healthy as monitered by a doc. no areated drinks - junk food allowed,

Besides, they are day boarding from 1st std onwards, which is a boon for working parents so the school timmings will be  9 - 5 pm, actual school is till 2.30 pm, then all the other activities start , like they have a host of extracurricular ectivities such as , skating, drama, dance, music, self defence etc, are also gonna build a rooftop swimming pool.

The classrooms are all AC and have huge windows so are always bright, with beautiful murals and stuff adornign the walls, they have max 30 -35 kids in each class, till 10th std. currently they are till 7th std.

By n large they have an excellent infrastucture , and i'm quite happy with it.

ACP 2009-11-18 14:45:48


Hi Bijal -

Thanks for the response - this does give confidence to me when I hear from a parent who already has a child in this school.



bijal 2009-11-18 18:05:56

As we are staying in Mira road it will b closeby  and i wanted them to send in Mumbai only as at Presently they r in RBK-IGCSE but in this school apart from the huge syllabus no other special activities r there. So if u can gudie me(@bijal) as ur son is already going there what r the timings , fees , and is the cirriculam is managable because school timings r i think from 9-5 and Please let me know if you have any idea whether there buses ply towards mira road because i  the buses plying around mira road as Gurukul international is this a same school? and as within this 2 days i will be coming there 2 pick up the form if available it will b very helpful if u will guide me. As for me extra-cirricular activities r more important as because of this one reason i am planning to change their school. 


bijal 2010-05-10 16:43:57


@ kashalkar ,

How do u know these things abt this school, is someone u know studing there, or do u know the management? also someone i know is enrolled there no one as any complaints so far .... also the fees are definately not exhorbitant, infact way less thanother schools charge for these facilites...

How do u know if it is politically connected n all?


kashalkar 2010-05-10 18:54:30



Your points how do you know these thing about this school ?

I have personally noticed when I had been to this School for getting admission for my daughter who is 3 years old now.

Is someone u know studying there ? : No, I do not know anyone studying there, but I enquired with the parents of the pupil going to this school and there views are not at all good for this school.

I do not know the management or I wish to know ...

May be someone you know may not be having complaints.. but you cant generalise.

I do not agree with your point that this school is charging less fees than others... Gurukul is charging the highest fees amongst others schools in Dahisar/Borivali areas though nothing Universal in this school.... The education given is of third grade standard .....

One point I wish to know... How did you like this school ? And what you know about this school ? . Do you know that this school is built in Municipalty reserved area for dual language school ? Otherwise how can you know that this school management is not politically connected ?

Never to argue with others when you dont know the facts and figures.

Jai Maharashtra....

Hey Bijal....

how r u...I hope u remember me ???...U told me that u have studied in MATOSHREE KASHIBEN VRAJLAL VALIA INTERNATIONAL (more of a gujju culutre) VIDYALAY but now u do not have any idea .....Please can u get some info abt this school ??

The reason for stressing for this one is that it is the only CBSE affiliated school in and round Kandivali to Dahisar (atleast according to the CBSE website).....I hope u will help me as you have been doing for my ealier posts..... I am specifically looking for CBSE schools in and around Dahisar and Borivali area....any other schools are also welcome.......

As always...appreciate your efforts in resolving my issue....take care


Riyak 2010-09-01 11:55:33


I am also of the same opinion of Kashalkar.

Gurukul Universal School of Ashokvan Dahisar

is not a good school. Such schools are built only

to earn money from the parents. Nothing is universal.

 can somebody tell me howz universal high schoool malad east branch planning to put my child in that school


kashalkar 2010-12-20 13:11:04



I dont have good opinion on this school nor school management and staff.

In Malad East, we have good schools,

Why cant you try Childrens Academy ?

In Gurukul Universal, your kid will not learn anything but only you will spent

lot of money.. This school has made education a commecial instrument to

earn money.

Hi Everybody,

I was running thru all the discussions you all r having currently. I am a resident of goregaon east.

Actually every parent has his own thinking for the choice of school to be made , some lay emphasis on extra curricular activities , some on acadamics , some on infrastructure , some on the cost.

Acc to me one should look @ a school which firstly lay good emphasis on the teaching staff ie the quality oif teacher, the infrastructure  & also the extra curricular activites.

My daughter goes to Lakshadham school in goregaon east which a goenka group school. I have personally felt seen that their principal is a very hands on for the entire ongoings for the school, she is very approchable. Its a very grounded school , has a mix of all levels of people, its cost effective.

I believe that academics cannot be replaced by giving more importance on extra curricular activities. Yes having said that if a school does not have emphasis on the the activites then you have outside sources available whr u can decide & put yr child into.

And also for the information this school has buses travelling all over, just chk out the timings with them. The nursery , Jr, Sr runs in 2 batchesie mor & eve.

In case of any assistance do feel to contact.

Hi.  Looking for an ICSC school around Borivali for admission to class VII.  Is Universal High Dahisar now upto class X.  What about the teachers and teaching facilities?  Need a reply quickly.


sweety143 2011-05-11 12:41:18



hello all,


Its a humble request to all the parents not to admit ur kid in Universal High Dahisar coz u may like the infrastructure n all but der is hardly anything that the child learns in the school..... Most of the time goes in celebrating various days n so on. The teachers keeps on changing every year coz they cannot retain good teachers and then finally settles down on teachers who are not qualified and ultimately the kids suffers alot......


The co-ordinators cannot even speak English properly and are just graduates but they are called as co-ordinators.....
