    Which class r ur kids in?

    Actually if you are ready to send your school a bit far off you have good schools in East Tambaram and Velachery. In East Tambaram you have Sri Sankara Vidhyalaya, In Kendriya Vidhyalas too they have open admission, you can try there too. If you are so keen on CBSE you can try Kendriya Vidhyalaya or DAV in Velachery.

    Will update you with more schools after seeing your reply. Pls let me know your kids age and which class they will be going

    Prince School

    Hi sowjvin

    I have heard of one school in medavakkam, which is very famous. Prince Matriculation school. I dont think its CBSE ! but, i can guarantee you the coaching will be v.good and consistently Prince has been producing many rank-holders. But only problem is I have heard the school is sooooooooooo strict, I donno whether that will have any impact ?

    Love,
    Preethi

    Good luck finding schools..

    Hi

    If you are staying at Medavakkam, i think Sindhi Model School would be near to you. It is a good school, CBSE located in Damodara street, Kellys.

    You can find other good CBSE schools in Kilpauk Garden Road. You have Bhavans Rajaji vidhyashram near Mummy Daddy, Chinmaya Vidhalaya etc.,

    Good luck hunting for good school for your child. Do let me know which school you had finally put your son..

    Bye

    My 2 cents

    One of my friend studied in Prince school ...Looks like they are very very strict.....and it had a very bad impact on him ..till today(it has been more ten years since he finished school) he is not able to come out of it ...
    A very studious guy like him developed a hatred to studies ...
    Looks like in this school they concentrate more more on studies ...and gives no time to play..
    The saying All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy ...proved to be true in my friend's case

    I heard that they a have Padma Seshadris School there ...y dont u try it ...

    Schools

    I am very sorry, I could not reply on time. The school mentioned by our friend is Vel's vidhyashram - run under direct supervision of Mrs YGP (Founder of Padma Seshadri). Mode of teaching etc is the same as Padma Seshadri. One more central board school is Modern Higher secondary school at Nanganallur. They are also CBSE. To my knowledge, there are many matriculation schools around this area. Prince school gives a good coaching no doubt, but the comments heard above seem to be true.

    Re: Hi

    Hi srilekha,

    Most schools in chennai do accept 3.5yrs. for school admission. only in some international schools they want your kid to be 4+ in march for the admission. (both my son and daughter started lkg in the same 4+ way.)

    Regarding madipakkam area- there are lot of matriculation schools. few cbse schools. DAV velachery - according to a close friend has lost its sheen. it is not as it used to be- it has become more of money...hope you understand what i mean. if you are not paticular about cbse then there is sai matriculation, holy angels in madipakkam/kilkattalai - on the main road. dont go to prince schools. then there is modern school in puzhuthivakkam - reasonably good one and is nearer to madipakkam. then there is chellammal school a cbse one -nanganallur-hindu colony. dav adambakkam is one more. You will not believe the number of schools that have cropped in this area. regarding dav velachery the application forms are given in january i think. and yes your son can get into lkg.

    hope this clarifies any doubts.

    love.
    shanthi.
