My child is now in Std III and has been going to Orchid since we moved to Pune couple of years ago. The school has come under a lot of flak due to the huge fee hikes etc. But I can vouch for one thing - this is a "happy" place to send your child to - the teachers are very affectionate, dedicated to their jobs & I find the management very transparent. The culture is open, encouraging the exchange of views. My child loves going to school & is always enthusiastic about everything she does there - her drums/dance classes, her "EVS Projects", etc :) I think that matters the most - the fact that your child is happy & enjoying her school.
