Thanks friend. If I understand right, seems I need to wait for 2 or 3 yrs to put him in these schools.
Anyway, I will try to do more research on this. Will check out the list you people mentioned.
@DieselFan, I have PMed you. Tks.

Lovedale - avoid - the teachers cannot control the students and management is awry
Rishi Valley seems to be good. Valley school in Bangalore - management are totally spaced out and detached from reality

St.Josephs coonoor,
Lovedale
Lawrence
Kothagiri public school
Hebrons
Good sheperds
Stanes

Kodaikanal-
Kodai international

i wouldnt call SJC a full-fledged boarding school.
Lovedale and Lawrence are the same?

Surprising why Laidlaw doesnt make it to the list, again??
Cheers

I've studied at kotagiri for 6 years at St. Jude's Public School and can assure you that it's a very good place to have your child in. But like Vivek Said, I would also suggest a residential school beyond class 5. You can visit St. Jude's Public School & Junior College! - Co-education residential school- Kotagiri-ooty road Nilgiris for more info.

There is also a community of the school on orkut where you can interact with current students from bangalore for more info as all the boys and girls from bangalore I know of are 1993 pass outs

I would not suggest KPS (Kotagiri public School) at all, not much overall development of the students + horrible food !

Laidlaw Memorial,Good Shepherds,Lawrence and Hebron School would be other considerable options that I have knowledge of.

Good Shepherds follow the ISC syllabus apart from the regular CBSE. Not 100% sure though, please check their website. Hilda's is the best girls school around. Most other co-ed schools follow the CBSE syllabus apart from Hebron, which does the British 'O' levels.

MaserQ,

Thank you for your input. I am looking at Co-ed schools with ISC. St Hilda is definitely a very good school.

Has any one have info on : The blue Mountain School, Brindavan Public School and Mountain Home School & Jr. College?

Unhappy Nilgiris road condition

I have an appointment at Ketti, Nilgiris (Ooty/Coonoor) this Monday (16th Nov) at Laidlaw school.
All of you must have seen the news about the extremely heavy rains just a few days back in Nilgiris with both the roads from Mettupalayam (via burliyar, via Kothagiri) damaged. Ketti itself recorded the highest rainfall.
It seems that the hill-station was completely cut-off for a couple of days with no traffic.
(I do not know about the route from mysore-bandipur though).
Today I called up all the contacts I knew there like the hotels I usually stay, etc.
It seems that except for heavy vehicles, cars and two-wheelers can take some alternative route.
Both my daughters are studying there and I have confirmed with the school that they are safe. The school itself is functioning normally.

I will be going in my Civic-AT, and am now very worried.
I am confused whether to cancel/postpone my trip (or) take a risk.
One other choice I was considering is to park my car safely in Coimbatore and take a local-taxi who know the routes well. The advantage with this is:1)The taxi-driver will be a local guy who knows the routes, 2)The tax-driver will take all that stress of driving bad roads and 3) Most importantly the taxi will bear the abuse of the bad roads! . The disadvantage is the higher cost of paying the taxi.

If there is anyone who has more information about driving in Nilgiris under present conditions, you can please share.

BHP-ian with handle beejay is based in the Nilgiris. He shall be able to give you a good idea on the current scenario.
The Met has forecasted rain for 2-3 more days. Another LPA around Comorin i suppose.
From news reports, looks like this years been pretty bad for the Nilgiris. IIRC, last time it was this bad was around '93-'94.

Cheers
Jagan.

Good Shepherd or Lawrence in Ooty.
Kodaikanal International in Kodaikanal.
Both Good Shepherd and Kodaikanal International are very good schools. Most of the students are from abroad mostly NRIs and the atmosphere in both the schools are great. The Good Shepherd though is situated a bit in the outskirts of Ooty but Kodaikanal International is situated right in the middle of the city and enjoys a very nice location and climate.

Thanks!

Back from a crash-trip to Nilgiris! (15th Nov up, 16 Nov Down, covered 925 kms in two days).
Though there were a lot of landslides and heavy rain, came back safely .
I will post further details in the above thread.
