I agree with Pavan Kadam. We are the customers for the school, they can't act all high and mighty. They can't question the punctuality when they are not punctual. Never consider a school that treats parents [customers] like dirt.

I said this last year too: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post3071366 (The "School Admissions" Thread)

This definitely is a mistake from the school side. If it were me, I would have pointed out this during the interaction; but NOT if I were late to the meeting.

Did they kidnap the kids and got them forcefully admitted? From what I understand, it's parents who have voluntarily taken the pain & decision to get the "babies" admitted to the school. Why would you blame the school for it?

They too give out applications, but they have a waiting lounge and well appointed counters to handle crowds. No Donations, No Building fees, No Influence. My daughter studies there from Pre-KG and she is in here 2nd standard. I must say, i am impressed so far.
This is really nice to know that we have such schools also in today's business oriented education scenario.

Just because we are customers, we also can NOT do anything at our will. The same way they can't question if we are NOT punctual; we can NOT argue with them if we are NOT punctual either.

Have a look at Harvest International. I have taken admission for my kid there. Seemed to meet the criteria I had in mind.

Any feedback on NPS Yelahanka for grades 1 and 5? Both my kids have got admission and we need to pay this week. Concerned as they still do not have CBSE affiliation!

Couple of kids from my apartment go to Ekya and Euro school and I have heard good reviews so far from both. My some will move to LKG next year, so I am also looking at these two schools. I believe there is a Chaitanya e-techno school also near by, but no first hand reviews yet.
There is a Gopalan international school too, but that is ICSE syllabus.

BTW, isn't it a little late to get admissions? Not sure if these schools will take in students.

Ryan has been an option - but apparently not so positive reviews of the school.

Ryan's supposedly doing good from what I have heard from people.I have a couple of friend' kids who are studying there.I could put you/your cousin through to any one of them if you are keen on talking to somebody there.Have another friend's kids going to Vagdevi as well.

Ekya JP Nagar is ICSE while Ekya-ITPL() is CBSE. Please mention the fees range. Ekya will cost around Rs1.5 lakhs per annum.
