    Hi All,

    I have been enquiring about schools in TVM for the past few months. From the feedback that I have received in other forums and from friends, Christ Nagar International School appears to be a good choice. Christ Nagar International school offers IGCSE syllabus and is located in Kowdiar along with Christ Nagar state board in the same campus. Christ Nagar CBSE is at Thiruvallam. Class strength in Christ Nagar Intl is neither too big nor too small from what I have heard. The school is known for its discipline, so that's a positive factor. I have also heard that the focus is more on academics and not much on extra-curricular activities. I'll post more details as I gather them.

    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't check the forum for some time. School name is GreenValley International School. School is run by Former principal of sarvodaya (Eapen Antony) and preschool is located in Gowreesha pattom. Visit their preschool and see the difference. I was impressed and already put my son in the preschool and excellent child centric system and one of its kind in Trivandrum.

    Hai,

    Though have joined long back indusladies this is the first post. Since this is the first time my husband is relocating from chennai to trivandrum and we are on the lookout for schools for my kid who is in 6th std. Based on the details on the school thread any idea about admission during the middle of the academic year in Loyola/Christ/BVB possible?
    How difficult is here in getting admission in any of the top CBSE schools in trivandrum as compared to Chennai. He studied in Schram Academy, Madhuravoyal in Chennai

    Thanks in advance. Am also doing online research and enquiring with friends and family, shall post any information that i get.

    Regards
    S Vadivu

    Christ Nagar International

    Update:

    Visited Christ Nagar International and met the Principal. School is very clean with a nice ambience. It is in the same campus as Christ Nagar ICSE and Christ Nagar State Board in Kowdiar. It's in a separate gated building. Minimum noise. Class strength is medium - about 25-30 kids per class which is very good by TVM standards. No discipline issues - the principal is very strict. Best part: I got to speak and interact briefly with current 10th and 12th grade students. And I was impressed by them - very confident and articulate. I got firsthand feedback about the school from them. The school is rigorous about academics :thumbsup. The teachers have to mandatorily stay back everyday after school to help with student needs. In addition, parents can meet teachers on Fridays for feedback, additional help etc. Only downside I see is not much emphasis on extra-curricular activities compared to other local schools. Overall a good school.
