Guys, need help. Can you suggest some good ICSC schools near Versova, 7 Bangla, area? Also is Marathi compulsory in all schools? My son will be going to 7th next year. I will be moving to Mumbai from Coimbatore early next year and stay will be in that area. Any advice on admission procedure will be super helpful. Thanks in advance.

Hi All, this question is mainly for folks living in Rajarajeshwari nagar, Uttarahalli, Banashankari parts of Bangalore. I'm admitting my kid to PreKG next year. I'm deciding between
1. National Public School, Banashankari and
2. Rashtrotthana Vidya Kendra Banashankari

Ay views in deciding between the schools would help. I have applied for both schools and keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks in advance

Hello People.
I am looking to admit my 5 year old in a school around Brookfield, Bangalore starting next year (AY-2020)

Have short listed
1- For CBSE
1. VSE – Vydehi School of Excellence
2. EKYA, ITPL
2- For ICSE
3. Gopalan International School, Mahadevapura
Any feedback on these is highly appreciated. I haven’t decided on CBSE vs ICSE, but will eventually choose the school that provides all round curriculum.
I dropped Vibgyor & Ryan from my list based on the previous feedback on this thread

Any other suggestions around 5 Kms of Brookfield/Kundalhalli Gate, Bangalore would be a bonus for me.

Thank You.

There's also Deens Academy in that area that I would consider seriously, but securing admission there would not be easy. But its worth trying at least.

Any feedback
I had inquired about my kid's admission at the VSE. This is considered to be among the better schools in this area. I think their admission process has started. I do have the fee structure with transport options saved somewhere. Can look it up to post again, if needed.

I think the tuition fee was said to be about 1.4 (or was it 1.6?) lakh per annum with an increment of 10% every year.

The Gopalan international is good too. I have not made an inquiry yet. Many of my office-folks have their kids enrolled here and are quite happy.

There is a watered down version of the Gopalan International too which is called the Gopalan National School. My kid goes there. Check that out as well if you are fine with a smaller playfield and lesser sport/outdoor activities.

We figured that since we live in a large apartment complex having all the necessary amenities, our kid has access to the necessary infrastructure in case he is interested in something in particular. So we were happy with the school being largely academics focused.

Thank You, Yes Deens( though far) was also on my list but they clearly mentioned no admissions available for Grade 1 and I need to wait till January for any possible dropouts. That's a risky wait since other school's admissions may get closed by then.

It is ICSE affiliated. Tution fee varies depending on the grade to which you want your kid to be admitted. I am currently paying 95k annually as tuition fee for 2nd grade. Transport fee is separate, depending on distance. Stationary/books and school uniform expenses are also over and above all this. All put together it comes to about 1.5 lakhs in my case for the year.

PS: You will also be charged a one time admission fee. I paid 40k towards that 4 years ago, not sure how much is that now.

Yeah, it's 1.4L for VSE. Will check GIS too. Haven't been to their campus.
