Dear Parents,

I would appreciate your genuine feedback on St. Francis's ICSE board school in borivali. I am keen on sending my child to a catholic school and this the only catholic school in my area which has ICSE board ....

As I have recieved mixed comments on it frm the people in my area, just feel like cross-checking with rest of the parents too... please help me....

 My DD is in this school. We all like this school.The teachers are good,kids are from good families.They have lots of extra curricular activities..They are very organised. all timetables are  given in advance , especially exam so we can plan for vacations. the new brother is very  nice and approachable.They follow the workshhet and textbook pattern. The preprimary is especially very nice. We have very good memories of those years.

There are +ves and -ves in all schools . A parent has to be involved.. But overall the school is good.

My daughter is very happy with this school.

Hope this helps. If u have any specific querries I will be happy to answer

Dear SPD,

I recently got to know that the school is only upto std. IV. Has it got the sanction till std. X? do you know about it?



shahash70 2011-03-31 08:41:01


thanx for the info. any idea about kapole vidyanidhi international school, then also pls. let me know.




shahash70 2011-03-31 08:42:17


as per my knowledge, they normally gradually increase std. but check



shahash70 2011-03-31 08:43:20


do you know anything about BES International school (CBSE)? then pls. share.



shahash70 2011-03-31 09:54:57


i guess st francis ssc school is for only boys, but icse is co ed? right?



spd 2011-04-01 08:13:00


Yes the ICSE school is co ed they have affiliation upto 10th. No idea about Kapole vidyanidhi...

Regards to CBSE school I have seen the math textbooks for std 5th and 6th. i was not satisfied wth the standard. alsoI think  ICSE is much better as the math and science is good. with cbse the languages are strong... well this is my opinion but others may have diff views.

Pawar international is a good choice. as is SSRVM...





shahash70 2011-04-01 10:08:09


Thanks a lot for the information, I think that CBSE curriculam put lesser stress on languages (except hindi) and much on math & science , so child can do better in competitive exams. but ICSE can make child a better thinker.

Well, by chance if u can have feedback on kapole school, then pls. do share, as I have no choice left. rest of all the ICSE schools in vicinity are denying adm to my child. (St francis, SSRVM, Thakur(E), Pawar). so only one choice of kapole is left.
