Hi all,

Since the admission season has started, I need the help of the forum members in identifying and shortlisting good schools in Pune for my 3 year young daughter :).

I live in Kalyani Nagar so my area of interest is mainly towards East Pune and maybe Camp area as well, preferably CBSE/ICSE board. I'll appreciate any reviews/help. Thanks.

My 2 cents..would suggest sticking to traditional schools like Bishops, Mary's, Anne's, Vincent's...Can consider DPS if you are looking for CBSE board and stay close to the school. Reasons for shortlisting the traditional schools being their curriculum is good, they have enough extra curricular activities, fees is reasonable and they have a tried and tested model

Hi all,
I want to take an admission for my child for Nursary,
Can you please tell me which is better..... PICT Model School, Balewadi OR Sevasadan English School, Erandwane??
I am ready to relocate nearby school....

sorry for delayed response. Since my daughter was born before 30 Sept 2017, she was eligible for Nursery class for St Mary (applied) and for DPS (applied). I've kept Vibgyor as backup for last moment.

BTW, any idea is Bishop (Kalyani Nagar/Undri) released form for Lower KG? All I can see is Nursery forms.

Hi, even my daughter is born before Sept 2017, so unable to apply for most of the schools. Have applied for Mary's and Vikhe Patil.
Any reviews on DPS? Although Undri is quite far from my place so not the immediate choice. Any other schools which are good for LKG?

Hi rk2019, Where are you located? And which board are you looking into.

rs18 2020-12-17 18:07:30


What would be your preference if she gets through st maRy and DPS both? Mary's process may take time but DPs gas given clear timelines dor result declaration and fee payment. We are also in same boat. Somewhat confused betn cbse icse and other international bords like igcse and IB.

HalfOctave 2020-12-17 23:55:50


@rs18 - that is a good question for which I don€™t have answer to. My first preference is St Mary School but as you said their timelines are not well defined, so I am just waiting for things to happen and decide as they come.
