Hi. Which board are u luking for... M luking for ICSE board schools. Though IBCSE schools put less pressure on kidz n build them from core, they stress more on R&D, but the prob kidz r gonna face is when they go for their colleges, they might not be able to cope up the pressure which Indian Borad students will be able to handle more easily.

VIBGYOR admissions have started but m not sure to put my 3 yr kid here in. Which one is better school.. VIBGYOR, Gokuldham or any other in the area ? I want to put more stress in Academics.

very confused. Somebody pls help.

hi am looking for a good ICSE school for my 2.5 yr old in Andheri West- Lokhandwala area.

Any idea or review abt Jankidevi Public School? Am totally confused ...don't knw wht is the right option?

Hi Adish

My kids are in Goludham (yashodham playmate) in Sr. Kg

I too was contemplating Vibgyor Malad East. I was looking for Vibgyor only coz of the timings and extra curricular activities. But after visiting the school, i have changed my mind and will continue in Gokuldham. At present Vibgyor provides SPA only in the basement which is not at  all airy and the infrastructure is also not in place. Also there is also the controversy of  possibility of BMC school after some time on the First three floors coz the land belongs to BMC.

If compared academically, i prefer Golkuldham. I felt  Extra curricular activities can always be availed of seperately.




Adish 2011-10-14 17:22:02


Thanks for your input shkm.  I was planning to visit Gokuldham and VIBGYOR this Saturday. I m also very much in for Poddar School and have bought form today, the travel distance here I am finding is aroung 45 min while Gokuldham would be 30-35 min travel.

As u said, academics is even my priority coz extra curriculars we can always handle seperately, but m not able to finalize one  of the three schools I have listed here. How do you compare these three ?

svaswani  for Andheri -W thr are lot of gud schools - 1. Maneckji Cooper, 2 -  Arya Vidya Mandir,  3- Uttpal Sanghvi, Rajhans, Janki Devi.... I have ranked them per my R&D but you will always get different feedback from diff people. I heard Janki Devi is more into extra curricular than academics.
