Hi Madhurie, My son and daughter are studying in Hyderabad now. I'm planning to relocate them to Pune for next academic year, but I'm not sure if they would be able to cope with Marathi as a subject. They are in 3rd and 4th now. Is there any other option apart from Marathi for 4th and 5th? Right now my son has two languages in 3rd - English and Hindi, daughter in 4th - English, Telugu and Hindi Thanks, Eswar

Its not very difficult to learn another language.

Dear Madhurie My daughter is currently in Indira National School, in Xth standard, and we are looking to shift her to some other CBSE school from XI. We feel the quality of Indira School has recently deteriorated. Our aim is to send her to some place with high focus on academics and scores in Board exams with PCM as her subjects, and perhaps have some tie-ups with competitive exam coaching centers if that helps. Can you please advise ? We are in Baner area, and something nearby would be more preferable ideally.

U will need to book phone consultation

Hi Madhurie, I keep reading your articles on this website and i find it very useful and practical. Efforts really appreciated, Thanks a Trillion. I have twin daughters they are 5 & 1/2 years old, studying in Sr KG @ Moondrop Nursery School near model colony. Since 2011 i tried there admissions initially for Lr KG, then Sr KG now i ll be chasing for 1st standard in St Anne's School(camp) & St Joseph's School (Pashan). Schools are denying the admissions telling reasons either they don't have any vacancies or its too far from my residence. I stay at Wakdewadi, that's very close to Pashan(St. Joseph's) also to Camp(St Anne's) where i practice (at M G Road). And there are few of my neighbors whose child is going in these schools. I got few peoples through friends who were agents, they confirmed the seats but asking huge amount and i don't trust them & i am very keen for my daughters education in a convent school. As if i need to keep running after these schools again for the next academic year. Please guide & help me is there anyway to get the admissions in the school s i chose. Regards. Hemant Dulera. Pune.

Dear Hemant, Kindly fill the form on for relevant age/ class. I cannot promise any admission in the schools of your choice but will surely help you out.

hi madhuri i want info regarding nersery admission in sain joseph pashan.

Hello Mr Kakade, I am not able to get your problem. Also I am not an agent nor do I encourage getting admission via abnormal route. Your emails and comments are not very clear.

I am sorry , I meant that you are the only one , who is servcing this need and doing a nice work. there is scope of bttr design, font size, and M imp speed of Site AS evryne my nt hve cable Net. You can get double of traffic on this site and even you can expand this to other Cities, u have great bz scope. ( Visit my WWW.SKILLSFACTORY.IN) to refer what I meant by better design . etc.

humm, Thanks so much. how many points u give on Vidya Valley on scale of 1-10( 10 BEING HIGHEST. 1. education 2. Sports 3. INFRA 4. Class.( Standard) Recommended- yes/no.

Twice the burden I would say...

Ok, i will ask you simply. does St marry have same issue as st helena in terms of too much studies and no play. I will be thankful if you can say yes/no. pls

Yes answers are so subjective that its not right to answer just by reading a comment. You may have to book an appointment to get the best advice.

Thanks for refer.., Which just reconfirms my doubt of looking out a new school for my daughter, It does not have answer as you mostly provide :(

Dear Abhishek, I like your blunt honesty just like mine! Keep reading you will understand which type of school your child needs. If still confused call me.

Hi Manasi, I think you need to attend my seminar or workshop for school admission. I m offering Free seminar worth Rs2000/- for parents who book one-one workshop. write back for same.

hi, madhurie I stay at kothrud I am looking for a good school with cbse pattern for my daughter, for jr. kg I am confused between schools like, symbiosis, vikhe patil, vidya valley and st. joseph's school.

Hi Madhurie, I am not able to find any reviews on your site Symbiosis International school. please could you let me know if you have any details on this school Thanks, Suvarnas

Pls ask your friend to visit my site. And contact me on [email protected]

request for details regarding international schools like Mercedes Benz, Symbiosis, Indus etc, for a friend who is relocating from UK.

Hi Madhurie, Can you pls tell us if there are any other ICSE schools apart from the usual Bishops, VibGyor, Pawar Public School? This is for admission to nursery in the 2013 academic year (my son will turn 3 in April 2013) and we stay near Kharadi. Few follow on questions: 1) Do all the Bishops school have a common entrance process? by filling up the single form, would I be applying both to Kalyani nagar and Undri branches? 2) Have you reviewed Hutchings school as yet, What is your opinion on this school? 3) Do you know of the timelines for the admission process for the 2013 admissions?

I like your name "Rumpa" sounds like a celebrity writer :).

I think if u search for these school names with my name you will land on the reviews and about Bhisops school yes the form is same but you have clearly mention for which school you are applying. If it changes this year I am not sure. Once you mention KN, you will never have an option of Undhri or camp...timeline is Dec 2013

hi madhurie, request your views on SPIS for my 6 year old son thanks

Jayashree you will have to email me and book appointment. Check pages under Schools 1-12

Hello Maam, I would like to know about these workshops mentioned here. Who and where are these conducted. How to enroll for this. If I myself want to conduct some workshop then what is the procedure. kindly let me know Regards Yogita

School and admission workshops are conducted by me. I place notices on my site whenever there are school admission about to start. In case you want to conduct you will have advertise and make arrangements yourself at any convenient place.

Hey Madhurie, Congrates for the brilliant idea, your website. It has helped hundreds of anxious parents. Now, I am next :). We are fairly new to pune so do not have proper knowledge about the schools here and there are so many to choose from. I live in Magarpatta City and currently both my kids study in the magarpatta school. While the infrastructure and all is quite decent here. But I have a few concerns, 45 students in a class :( Extra curicular activities are not much. Yoga and Skatting in primary skating is limited to a 30 seats only. On the positive side, my children don't have to commute to go to school. I am looking for a school where a child is groomed well and focus is on overall development and practical knowledge. Childrea are encouraged in sports activities, national and international competitions be it in sports, maths or cultural events. Could you point some of the best schools around this area, schools which you recommend as a parent and with the expertise you have gained over the years in terms of knowledge about the various schools in pune. Many thanks Jayshree

Hi Madhuri, Thanks for responding ! I have sent an email on your gmail id. Regards, Ramesh.

Kindly email me so that I can guide you

Hi Madhurie, My daughter goes to Wisdom World School at Wakad and is in Nursery. Do you think trying St Mary's for 1st std is worth? Thanks!

Let me first of all congratulate and thank you for your excellent site! It's really very helpful to parents when it's comes to guidence on schooling of their children. We have taken admission to Amenora School (CBSE Board, Managed by Pearson Group) for our 3 year old daughter. Would it be possible for you to make your review comments regarding this school? Please note that we were specifically looking for CBSE board schools near Hadapsar, Pune and did not have option of DPS as they do not offer admission to childern who are below 4 years. Thanks and Regards, Ramesh Potnis

Hi Madhurie, I've gone through your website and was happy to see the information that you have provided. I am looking for admission for my son who is 3. yrs old. I am not very specific about the Board, but would like my son to be in a school which would not only have attention on acadamics but also concentrate on some extra curricular activities. Can you suggest some good schools in Wanowrie / Camp area. Thanks in advance.

Hi Madhuri, I would like to know about entrance test for Hutchings school,Pune. This is transferred case admission for standard 1. Do you have some idea about this written test for standard 1 ? thanks, Sachin

Sachin, I wonder what made you select this school? As for the questions, they are mostly maths and english. Very simple for a smart child:)

Hi Madhurie, I am planning to put my kid in Victorious Kids Educares, Kharadi. Can you please tell me how is the school and also the fees structure of the school.

Hi madurie, My daughter will go in 3rd std in April 2012.I am thinking to put her in city International school as it is nearby to my I want reviews of city International school satara road branch.

Hi Madhurie, Can you please enlighten me on this.. are online application forms for admission to St Mary's rejected outright (i.e. without meriting an interview call) if they donot meet the age criteria?

Yes ! Infact the application will not be processed if age is not fitting.

Hi madhurie, I have read abt u and ur work, I m constantly surfing abt schools and their reviews. I AM VERY MUCH SURPRISE WHY U HAVE NOT WRITTEN ANYTHING ABOUT SANSKRITI SCHOOL PASHAN ROAD PUNE,my kid is now just 1year,and I religiously follow ur blogs.

Oh its just that I have not really gone to review the school :p...Can't write fake reviews

Hi Madhurie, I am thinking of admitting my daughter to Leapbridge International preschool for pre-nursery. Please let me know your view on the school.

Hi madhurie, Thanks a lot for such a informative site. Am confused with my daughters admission for nursery, she is 2.9 and gng to playgroup. I have following options...Pawar Public school, St arnolds, orbis and VIBGYOR. Vibgyor fullfills my most priorities but only factor holding me back is its distance since we are residing in kharadi..she will be spending atleast an hr at a stretch. How important shd b the distance factor?? Amongst the rest 3 schools which one shd i go for?

HI Madhurie, First i want to congratulate you on this great initiative you have taken up to bridge the gaps in education via this portal. I am seeking admission for my son in 1st std and we have moved from US recently and my son is going to Podar school today in srkg. Do you know Good schools in and around Dhayari,Pune . My priorities are - Strict communication in English in school. - Extra curricular activites - Well trained teachers - I am also looking for schools conducting exams for the kids. - Distance is not a problem as long as the school has bus facilities to drop the child at home. Please help. Whats the feedback about Springdale or Green acres school in this area? Thanks Vinay

Hi Madhurie All the good stuff that I read about St Mary’s on the internet revolves around girl’s section. i have 2 sons who i want to put in good schools. Is there any preferential treatment towards the girls section and consequently, is the the boys section getting a raw deal. I have noticed that even on the school website, they seems to be showcasing the girls section more. i don’t want to put my sons in a school where they are treated as second class citizens, so need your feedback before i attempt admission in St Mary’s. Thanks in advance ..

hi madhurie... thank u for all d help u provide on your website....i would like to know your views on st arnold central school...i read one article of yours which is a positive one...but u havent posted a table of it....i would like to take admission for my son there.... what do you have to say about the mixed crowd there...need your views pls...

Thanks For sharing your views.Only concern was that these kids should not be pressurized in 4th grade. Thanks a lot for your reply.

Dear Madhurie, It is mentioned on DPS website ( page 29- there are no formal exams upto class 3rd.assessment will be based on story telling,recitation etc. Is it as per CBSE norms? will it affect child's progress? Let me know your comments. Thanks.

Its upto schools how they want to assess children in their schools as long as they teach the course within the scope provided by the board. Curriculum is a guideline which is more like topics and bullet heads which need to be taught by the school curriculum. Assessment is better than exams. Assessment actually looks at what kids have grasped, whereas exams looks at how much a child has mugged or can take pressure or power of retention. Exam is good way to practice for competitive exams only. It should be abolished completely as it hinders the real learning of the concepts. It forces kids and parents to learn for marks.

Hi Madhurie, My son will be 3and halft by april 2012, I'm confused with state and CBSE board. He will seek admission in kamalnayan Bajaj school in chinchwad area. other two schools are vikhe patil and Indira kids.does board really matters if school is good?. Which school is better vikhe patil or indira kids? Regards,

Dear Madhurie Madam, Could you please let me know review of City International School, Satara Road? I'm seeking my son's admission for Jr KG 2012-13 in that school. Thanks and appreciate your feedback. Regards, Trupti

I would like to not comment on this school at all!!!!!

Hi Madhurie, We will be moving from Mumbai to Pune & I am looking for admission to an ICSE school for my son who would be going to std 4. Ideally we would like the school to be around Hadsapsar area (both I & my husband work + live there) so I have a couple of options: 1. Magarpatta city school. However, the website says that admission is only available to Magarpatta owners & employees ( I am neither). The admissions status will be posted on their website after 15th Jan. 2. Pawar Public School (admissions open after 15th March). I am not too sure about the quality of teaching after reading your reviews. 3. Vighbor NIBM – but that takes 45mins from where we live (maybe longer in peak traffic) and I am not happy about the access road. Your review on them is great and looks like admission is not a problem here. I really need your advice on which should be the preferred option. Are there any other good ICSE options around this area (max 30mins drive)? Help please!! Anita

You need to attend workshop with so many queries.

Hi Madhurie, My daughter is 2.4 yrs old and we are residing at Phursungi. I am looking for a good school [following CBSE pattern] in the vicinity of 6-10 kms. I have done some research on the schools and have shortlisted Amanora[Manipal] school near Amanora township and Lexicon school at Hadapsar. Please help if you are aware of any other good school. Also problem i feel with the schools that i have shortlisted is Amanora school will always prefer residents from Amanora township. Am i right ? Lexicon school [at Hadapsar] has been opened recently. so i am not sure of the teachers and management here. Also i couldn't find any reviews on these two schools. Thanks and Regards, Mitesh

This is a repeat question from you. When I answer something kindly follow it, and in case you get an email from me, it means the answer to your question is subjective and cannot be answered generally lest everyone follows it blindly.

Hi Madhurie, Regarding St. Arnolds school admission criteria. They have mentioned that childern born between 1-1-2008 to 31-10-2008 will be eligible for admission for Lkg for this academic year. Is this true? if yes, why so?. I am pursuing admission in this school for my son for Lkg. Hes born on 6-11-2008. Going by the dates published, my son will not be eligible. However, he will be 3 and half years at the start of academic year for Lkg. Please advice what other schools (CBSE) I can opt for. I stay in Koregaon Park.

Hi Madhurie, Your site is very informative and unique :). We are shifting to Magarpatta City. My son is 2 year and 3 months old. We are considering Amanora School as it is managed by Manipal group and follows CBSE pattern. 1. Can you please share your views on Amanora School. 2. Also suggest some good CBSE schools in the near vicinity.

HI Madhurie, My son is 3 yrs old (born 06-Nov-2008) and going to nursery at playschool in Aundh (closer to our residence). I am not sure if we need to move him out for Jr.KG or wait until Std.1 before we try into one of these bigger schools? Also, the cut-off dates (for age) for different schools is different. So, what is your suggestion - should we target to put him into Jr.KG in 2012-2013 or wait until 2013? Ex: Vidya Valley has a cut-off date of 01-Jun-2008 for this year where as for Wisdom they should be ok. My thrid question- any recommendations for the right school considering we are in Aundh & I do not wish to pay exorbitant amounts like in Orchid? Thank you very much for any pointers.

Hi Mam My son is Jan 2008 born. He is going to play school from June 2010. He will be 4 years in Jan 2012. Can we apply for UKG for him. Also suggest some ICSE or CBSE school in vishrantwadi or dhanori.

Pls read my article on when is the right age for admission. 4 is too young!!!!!!

Hi Madhuriji, I am sorry for Daughters DOB is 25th nov. 2009. Thank you so much.

Hi MadhurieJi, Thanks a ton for this great website. My daughter was born on 25th NOV she has completed her 2yrs of age now i was wondering if i should take admission for her to start with playgroup in June 2012 as she will be 2.6 then. I am considering New India school, kothrud or sanskriti as they seem to be closer from my house in bavdhan. what is the age criteria for playgroup admissions in these schools?..... i heard from someone that New India school has 5 yrs of pre-school education before your child goes to 1st standard. can you verify if thats true?....also how are both schools? Would really appritiate the reply. Thank you.

Hi Madhurie, let me first admit Dil se..Your website is a relief.. We had applied for the admission to St Mary's for our daughter (Pre-Nursery,ya she fits in the age criteria), but didn't get shortlisted,we both are Engineers and working..Anyone aware of the criteria for shortlisting...well I know we are not supposed to question but still would improve on the shortcomings while applying for the next school...(we stay at Hadapsar)..Any suggestion will be helpful I am quite tensed about kid's admission now. Pallavi.

Thanks Pallavi, Well the criteria for application form being selected is what I deal with in my school admission workshops and seminars. Had you come to me your story would have been different. I would say come to the seminar on 11th Dec 5-7pm at Kalyaninagar and get all your tensions allayed.

Dear madhurie, I am staying in bangkok currently and shall move to pune son will be 4.5 yrs by december...i want to know if admissions to Ukg will be open in schools like orchid, vikhe patil and vidya valley???...

Well admissions in new schools yes but not in old schools as they have a fixed time when they open admissions and are jam packed.

Hi Madhurie, I am seeking admission for my son for 2012-2013. We have shortlisted 3 schools which are feasible for us from transport perspective. Hutchings St Bishops Undri Kothari National School (KNS) I visited KNS yesterday personally and was quite impressed with the school.I also went through your review on KNS. I wanted to know your opinion on KNS over Hutchings & St.Bishops Undri.

Well I think it depends on the criteria of distance, financial feasibility (long term) and ofcourse the meaning of what schooling means to you. I suggest you attend the seminar which is now at 50% discounted fee on 11th Dec 2011.

hi Madhuri Have you reviewed Podar international at Ambegaon? I heard that it is good school but no sport ground for children. It would be very helpful to know your reviews about school, teaching methodology and activities school carry for their overall development

SNyadav, too far !!! May be one day when I am going that way !!!

Hi Madhuri, As per my earlier blog, we have shortlisted VPMS SB Road and Vidya Valley schools for my daughter.Please help us which one should we prefer first? It will be very helpful for us since you are having such wide experince in reviewing the schools. Thanks, AnusMom.

Hi, Madhuri... Plz check admission dates again.for St.Mary's Girls school, admission date mentioned as MID DEC...However date to fill Online forms, is already over. :(

No Vandana, its on now for Jkg check here. I think you are confused with pre-school dates which are over.

We are really confused as to which one to prefer first. We request you to please help us regarding this. Thanks, Sarika Deshmukh(AnusMom)

Hi Madhurie, See that you haven't reviewed Victorius Kidss Educares. Further, i also read your comment that you have tried to cover all "good" schools so far. Should i deduce the answer about Victorious then ? We stay in Viman Nagar and distance till their new Kharadi campus is not much. Further our inclination towards genuine education and studies without mugging up / high pressure kind of school. Though i am not happy with saturday working, longer school hours and steep fees. If i were to choose amongst the following 7 schools solely based on genuine education and as relaxed an atmosphere for kids as possible - which one would get your top vote : 1. DPS 2. Vikhe Patil 3. Victorious Educares 4. Orbis 5. St. Arnolds 6. Manipal (Amanora) 7. Pawar Public Many thanks, Prajnya

Hi Madhurie! My friend's son is 5.3yrs old, currently he is in one preschool nearby. As it's a preschool she is looking out for admission in 1st std.

Hi Madhurie My son will be eligible for nursery admission for year 2012-13. we live in bibwewadi and have choice to admit my son for 2012-13 to Bishop's undri, hutchings. But none of these are of us fav choices. we are actually looking for DPS, Bishop's camp or St. Mary's Boys. I am not sure how difficult to get admission in these schools. Can you please guide?

Thanks for the great work you are doing. On your website the very common question which I see is - which is the best school out of - Akshara, Indira, wws and blue ridge. I know u posted review of Indira, it will b helpul if u post review of remaing schools or some sort of comaprison for parents so that they can choose as per their preference. Thanks again.

Hi Madhuri, my daughter in UKG in Angle school in Hadapasr. Now i am looking for CBSC/ICSE board for 1st std. Can you give me the names of school near hadapsar where i will get admission for 1st std. a lot of schools are not giving admission in 1st std. There is one school "Manipal Amanora School", i am not getting much information about this school. please shear some information about this school if you have. your site is very good, a lot of information i got..... Thanks Shinde C.P.

Yes u r right about Manipal School at Amanora. I can't share much about it as of now. You may want to go through the consulting.

HI Madhuri Have you done a review on Vidya Valley? I am considering it for my daughter she will go to 1st next year

Yes and no. Its been a year so I need to go again.

I am considering Wisdom World School for my daughter who is 3 years 3 months old now. Would like to know if you had a chance to review the school? If so, could you pls share your views? Thanks, Jayita

Yes I have reviewed WWS but not written about it yet. May be a week or so it should be posted.

when u gonna post wisdom world reviews ??/........i'm eagerly waiting. thanks

Hi Madhurie, Excellent articles. Its one of the best source of Information regarding schools in pune. My Son is 2.5 yrs old and currently in Lexicon-kids. I read your article about education boards.However, I would like to know your view point about education board vs Schools. What should come first when i take decision about my son's future. Should i decide education board first and then decide which school is best for my son which offers that education board OR first i should decide appropriate school for my son, no matter which education board they offer? Also another question is, Is it better to go with old, proven schools Or new upcoming schools which has altogether different way to develop kids? This is really important for me to know before i decide school for my son. Thanks in advance,

Hi Again, And i forgot to ask the question - please can you throw some light on which of these would be more close to our criteria and requirements for a school for our daughter ? Many thanks and regards, Prajnya

You will have to read the reviews to be enlightened yourself. :)

hi madhurai i am looking for the review of VICTORIOUS KIDSS EDUCARE .please let me know if u have any idea .i like their concept but i dont get review for this school .please their admissions are open ,your reply will help me a lot. thanks in advance byee

Hi Madhurie, Congrats on the progress on your website. It has a lot more content and ease in navigation and categorised rating than before. We are quite happy to see ur step towards enabling children to take up the trinity exams. We are looking at lesser academic pressure (from school-to maintain their image viz. st.mary's) - thats our No.1 criteria. However, also want to keep our and our little one's feet firmly on the ground. Overall dev. wise CBSE seems to be a better option - so now looking for lesser pressure in terms of academic aggressiveness and in a big way sports + middle class well educated parental crowd + ofcourse other 2 criteria desireable but not compulsory - distance and fees. We have kind of ruled out IB - Victorius Kidss (cos of price + no. of working days 270) and ICSE - St. Mary's (sheer pressure). It leaves us with options like DPS (already filled form - we are Group D), VPMS Lohegaon, St. Arnolds and Kendriya Vidyalay. We reside in Viman Nagar and have a daughter currently studying in nursery. LOL, we never expected to stay up late and do such investigation into schools - but don't want to give into last minute decisions based on panic. Thankyou for your blog.

Hi Madhurie, My Daughter will be 3 yrs old on July 2012.We are thinking of Bishops and St Marys(we stay at Hadapsar).I have this criteria of sports too.Which one of the two is better for the kid to be sports as well.Are there schools with tennis courts at their place(I know its too specific,but still...)or which school focuses on studies as well as sports. Pallavi

None have wat you are looking for. I suggest you read the tabular review of both schools again. PPS is the only school with Tennis. I am wondering a 3 yr old with tennis !!!

Hi Madhurie, And thanks for this superb site, got to know so many things.. Pallavi

Hi Madhurie, I would like to take admission for my daughter( 2.9yrs now) in ICSE board school.I have gone through your reviews of schools, which i think are very honest.In reviews section i don't see review about Bishops School, Undri,Can we get review about it. btw we live @ Hadpsar ( near Magarpatta ), which school u think is best near Hadpsar/Camp..can u rate them plz.. Congrats for nice n very helpful info. Regards,

Yes I will post the tables for WWS and Indira. The other two are not reviewed yet.

Akshara is good school though not much of ground. But for day care facility its a good option. Gurukul express is also around same area but not as good as Akshara.

Hi Madhurie, We are currently in US and will come back to Pune in April 2012. My son is studying in Kindergarten. I have just filled the online form of DPS for Class 1. I think admission will be considered as per the vacancy and vacancy will arise only after March, right? (for class 1 to 8)Then how they have scheduled the sessions for all classes in the month of Nov/Dec?? In that case we cannot be able to attend the admisson sessions. Also I will try in St. Mary boys and Bishop-camp for Class 1. For that we need to send the written application by email or post. Can you please suggest what exactly should be written in application??

None of the schools u mentioned will entertain mails and letters.

just to clarify my earlier post, i know abt schools 'located in the area' from website but i want to know the best ones . plz help.
