Hi,

I am planning to R2I from US. Planning on putting my kids in school and have Yuva Bharathi and PSBB in mind. I like Yuva bharathi since, the school time is about ~6.30 hours and the kids could use the time to relax, extra curricular activities and studies.

Anyone has experience with either school and have any opinions.

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Thank you! :)

Great. I am planning to R2I from singapore soon (May be in 2014). My daughter is studying in Yuva bharathi singapore. My opinion is Yuva bharathi singapore is Average or above. YB coimbatore might be better than YBIS.

Thank you very much! We are planning for 2014 as well. Our kids will be 8 and 10. I am a bit nervous. :). May be the pattern of teaching is fairly similar since, they are both the same organization?

What is it that you don't like about the Singapore Yuva Bharathi?

Do you already have a place to live or, are you looking to buy a place? Just curious to see what the real estate market is like. We may be renting a place to start with.

vngm6465,

A caution.

10th std shift is a little risky. Please check with the CBE school now itself. Last minute issues can be avoided.

Thank you Kannan! I believe you may be thinking one of my kid is starting 10th standard? My kids would be 8 years and 10 years when we move. I believe we have time to worry about 10th standard?

My opinion for those who want to return to India. If college education of the kids is the priority then TN is only for special people and not for the general public. Also due to lack of entrance examinations children have to take up a lot of stress. So please consider these issues before taking any decision. If these issues do not matter much then TN is one of the best place to live in India.

There are only a few schools in TN which understand the background of NRI kids (Primary Edu @ abroad). Other schools here teach far high std / tougher syllabi and these kids may feel out of place.

Similarly as doccbe says, college edu is very different here. Many of my friends kids who did School Edu abroad failed miserably in TN Professional colleges. The problem starts from Getting admission, huge Fees & other expenses, treatment by fellow students, type of learning / teaching, social interaction ... almost every thing...

There are only a few colleges in India who have international students hostels. But there also, things are not so hunky dory.

Many of late prefer Singapore NTU & NUS and parents being based in TN.

My friends say that this school is better than others for R21 kids. They say that the teachers there are very understanding and do not tax the kids at all. They do Project based / Activity based learning and not the bookish type followed by most of the schools in TN.

http://www.harishree.org/.

But whether they have similar schools in Coimbatore or other cities, I do not know.

There are similar schools in Chennai.

NRI kids need to practice one more thing to study in TN schools.

Our kids bags are easily between 7-10kgs. So make your kids to learn carrying heavy weights. NRI students hardly carry heavy stuffs, but TN kids carry their huge bag at their bag at their back like 'Uzhaipaali illade naadu thaan engum illeya...... ada oya'

R2I help - Building Approval and Contractors

Folks,

My apologies if I am asking the question in the wrong thread. I don't see any other thread where I can ask this question.

We have some land on a main road in Coimbatore. Before R2I, I wanted to build a commercial complex as an income generator until I settle on a job.

Do you folks know, any construction company who is reasonably reliable and trustworthy that can do this end-to-end (i.e. building plan, approval, and construction). I wanted to start the process before moving to CBE.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much rastakoli and kannan infratech and all others for such great useful discussion on the schools. Its been quite a while since i've gotten back here.

rastakoli, the list gathered by Sudhagar is awesome, thanks again for sharing this (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...mc&hl=en#gid=0). After looking at it, it now makes me think that Suguna PIP school and TIPS school will be of great start to keep the trauma of the move at a lower grade (for my 8 year and 10 year olds). As you guys discussed, getting into good colleges may be hard if they don't compete at the same level as most children (i.e. non international schools) and TIPS and Suguna PIP appears to be such schools, may be its just my perception.

My thoughts are to look into the following schools. I am yet to get the data on Suguna and TIPS curriculum. Also, we wonder if putting the kids in international school will defeat the purpose of our R2I since, they may not the see things as most other children.

Yuva Bharathi
PSBB Millenium
Suguna PIP School
TIPS (The Indian Public School)

That link is bogus, it does not have Carmel in it! Just joking, I know they have gone down the last few years.

vngm, if I were you, I won't worry about missing out on 'what most other children see'. It is not like these schools are exclusive. You will see kids from all strata.

Thank you spidermanusa!

Yeah, We should not worry about things to this extent. Now I am sort of honing in my interest to Yuva Bharathi (http://www.yuvabharathi.in/) and Suguna PIP (http://sugunapips.in/) School. Problem with Suguna PIP is that I haven't looked into ways to find the results for this school and how well they are doing, however, their website claims all the good things and it's hard to tell how good it really is.

Anyone have any specific thoughts on either of these schools? Thanks!

vngm6465 / sampathkumar,

Any feedback / update from the schools you mentioned ? There are positive feedback on CS Academy in Kovaipudur but bit concerned with the location. it turns out that school admission is the biggest decision of R2I - as we need to secure admissions now for start in June 2014.

My son goes to CS Academy and we returned from the US. Our experience with this school is good. They have buses that go all over the city. Where will you be based in Coimbatore?

Thank you. Location wise we don't yet have a finalised place but we were mostly thinking of around hope college / vilankurichi / kalapatti area as we have some friends and family around. Hence we were looking at Vidya Niketan / Suguna PIPS / newly opened NGP public school etc. But the above schools had mixed feedbacks but CS Academy has been all positive atleast as far as I enquired.

Based on your experience, do you think we need to make a trip exclusively (in the next moth or so) to sort out school admissions or can it be done without being there in person?
