Hi Manju & Thameema, I can't comment much abt the school as I am fairly new to this school. I do agree on their tardiness regarding school supplies, but communication wise I have had no issues, atleast so far, it's been pretty clear. Regarding field trip ,the 2nd grade just went on a field trip last saturday to Birla Planetarium and I saw the whole schedule of field trip and all other exam and holiday schedule clearly stated in their school website. One thing I can say with my experience that I have gotten over the yrs from back and forth trips to US and changing schools both in India as well as US, is that- there is no perfect school , all institutions have their own set of pitfalls, once you change school, most of the time the change make you regret and we kinda feel that the old school was far better. So instead of complaining we can try to resolve the issues and go with it, unless otherwise your kid is totally devastated, then we need to change. Just like you guys, I am hoping this school would be good and wishing all the best to all of you, as we have invested heavily on this( yes school has become an investment these days.......LOL ) have fun , be happy. Regards, Anitha.
