I ‘m new to this website and this is my first question in this website. Somehow this website name impressed me a lot, thanks to a friend who refered this site in indiaparenting.com
Friends, right now i’m abroad and planning to move to chennai within next academic year 2009. I have twin boys who are 3years now and i’m planning to join them in a good international std school. I prefer this type of school mainly becos of student teacher ratio which shd be 20 students to 1 teacher.
I know those schools are very expensive, everything depends upon my hubby’s job in chennai too. i ‘m a home maker managing my kids at home, no plans to work till my kids grow and know to manage themselves.
but i want research and get details about good school and apply and not lose admission in goos schools for my sons.
the list i’m giving below is the schools i ‘ve heard from friends and thro website..they are okay. Pl. freinds rate the schools and pl. tell me advantage and disadvantage in these schools so that i can filter and select a good school finally.
My requirments are, a good student teacher ratio, nice and friendly coaching, from lkg-12th the school shd be nice and result oriented, cbse board in 10th and 12th std and icse in other classes( if possible), the school shd have lkg to 12th std or should increase each std yearly..anything is fine, tamil should be there as a language option for second language, good extra curricular activites in school itself like swimming, karate, music and if they have spanish teaching class that would be wonderful( if for any reason we may have to go back to usa spanish is a subject here).
the schools are:
1. gateway-the complete education in shollinalur
2. veal billabong
3. velammal international
4. the schram academy
5. the lords international school.
6. amazing kids
7. lalaji international school.
Pl. also tell me if u know other good schools than the above and also tell me the fees affordability if u know .
If u can tell me when they start giving applications and start admission process that would be great.
thansk alot in advance.

hi, Since your son is only 3 years old, he can only join Pre-KG. veal Billabong will ask for a deposit of Rs.50,000/-(one time, non refundable) and Fees of Rs.50,000/- per year. You can directly goto their office and get the application before end of march. They teach swiming from LKG and they take for field trips also. Their english is very good. Other extra curricular activites i am not sure of. I got all this information from the school when i went for my son’s addmision. They have tamil as second language and No interview will be conducted. No donation. Hope this details will help you.

Vaels billabong i didn’t heard good about the school. They have just the brand name and nothing else. Give last preference to this. The next one i know and near to my place is lords international. Its a growing school. Good teachers, good student teacher ratio.
I knwo about these 2 only as of now. Hope its helpful.

Academic education quality is suffering and when you choose a school, college or a university, you need to be careful. And it comes to any kind of choices related to education. Even if you are trying to choose a good writing service just spend some time reading reviews. That’s how I came up with this australia essay writing service.
