Dear all, I am seeking admission for my son into junior kg ICSE board for coming year. Till now we have finalised Euro School Thane and The Hiranandani Foundation School. I need some feedback from parents about the fee structure and overall curriculum of above schools. Also if anyone could review about Dnyan Ganga Education Trust School Thane.

Thank you for your response. I need some feedback on good ICSE board schools in Thane west. Euro School, as I got to know is not affiliated to the board yet. I got negative reviews on Universal High. I could see very few reviews on Podar School. I am going to try my luck with JK Singhania, still have to keep options open. It would be of great help if anyone gives their valuable review.

poar int is only about studies . No extra curricular activities are there. teachers and didis scare the kids. if you want to harm the self confidence of your child , think of podar.

That's really scary to hear about Podar. I'm kind of zeroing down to Euro School, as very few options left for me. Still will try my luck with JKS. Thank you for your response maxmum.

Hey maxmum, Really appreciate for sharing this info about Podar School. Being such a reputed brand name and charging such high fees it is really irritating that they are doing these type of things with kids.Is your child going to Podar? What std? Thanks - NS

Eligibility : Children born between 1st June 2011 and 31st July 2012 are eligible to apply for admissions to Jr. KG for the academic year 2016-17. There will be no relaxation in the age criteria. Copied from their JKS website

Ya I also saw jk website but what abt Aug 2012 they hv to waste their whole yr...or their 1 yr wd be wasted..

SShettyy 2015-11-25 09:53:10


Yes.. August born kids are at the edge! I understand as I'm in same boat. Check with other schools as well, some are considering all 2012 born kids for Jr kg. But as per Govt. rule your child should be 6 years old when he gets admitted to 1std. This rule is applicable from this year. That is by the year 2018-19 child getting admitted to 1std should be 6 years old.

Ya we were soo disappointed to see jk website....we were desperately waiting for it for sooo many years...well do u stay in hiranandani or kaservadavli

SShettyy 2015-11-26 09:56:08


I stay near New Horizon School, but due to negative reviews by parents we dropped that school from our list.

1ayeshu 2015-11-26 22:53:55


I also stay in Kaservadavli will u still apply in singhania...but don't u think its too far from our place

SShettyy 2015-11-27 10:21:03


@ayeshu I might apply next year. Applying this year is pointless as my son is not eligible. Yes it's a bit far, but we need to compromise when it comes to quality education. I have seen many kids (as young as jr kg)from our locality going to Sighania School.

My son is July 2012 Born. I am looking for Jr. KG admission for my son. I am staying in LouisWadi hence Hiranandani, Universal, Orchids, Shree Maa (Ghodbander), Podar and New Horizon are very far from my place. Vasant Vihar does provide admission for Nursery so I will not go for it.

I will try for JK. As State board English schools are also nearby, I will give a try.

I would like to know more details about Lodha World School as it is not too far from my place. Can anybody please help me about the reviews of LWS. I feel the fees are too much for LWS which are 78K excluding Uniform, Transport and Books. I have got mixed reviews so far so really confused.


1ayeshu 2015-11-30 22:56:09


Ya I'm also planning for the same as this yr my daughter is also not eligible

SShettyy 2015-12-01 13:31:23


Even Euro school is admitting children born before July 31st2012 to Jr kg this year. But there is age relaxation for kids who have attended Eurokids. They have started giving out forms from Monday 30th Nov.

@swapnil1602 ,
    I will strongly discourage you for Lodha school due to negative feed back. will suggest to review Rustomjee Cambridge school as well , Orchids is another good option.
