Sishya School (Gate and Arch)

Sishya is a very popular school in my area called Adyar, in Chennai. Studying at this school seems to be prestigious for many (as it is believed to give best education), since the school accommodate minimum number students to facilitate balancing efficiency and quality education, with economy. From KG to Class X there are not more than 30 per Class with just 3 sections each. I know this school from my childhood days only by name and it has been described to provide higher standard of education and getting admission here does need to be   literate and wealthy parents.

Sishya School (Gate and Arch)
Though most of students here are from luxurious background or economically fwd, I find money isn’t the prior to get a place at this school. Since moved opposite to this school, we aren’t to avoid receiving things happening with the school and the tenant who reside upstairs of this house succeed recently on his endeavour to get a place for his 3-years-old. During our occasional conversations he conveyed that he had registered for his son when he was 6 months in womb! Though both of his parents are educated and well placed at jobs with enough income they haven’t won the admission easily.

There seems to be lot of people in the waiting list, whom should have been registered in the same way (children at birth), as admission is given on first come basis for the minimum number of seats apart certain numbers that are reserved for Christian children, since the school received Christian Minority status. The school comes under the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination has been well equipped with state of the art facilities. Almost student come to this school via only cars and one could come across parades of cars coming in and out of the school, at specific times twice. It was a mild entertainment to watch different kind of cars though it cause annoy and traffic jams sometime.

It’s interesting to note that the school admits minimum number students to not to give away certain aspect of the school. They are certain about the quality of education and encourage activities that involve much physical and mental ability. The school’s ground is an advantage and being one of the big school grounds in city they conduct all kind of sports that student interest. Unlike other school, Sishya commence its first term in January and end with third term in December. The school has two vacation periods that marks with Christmas and summer in May.

I'm learning alot here :)
I smiled when I read that the students come by car. Back in my school time some students came to school in bigger cars than the teachers. Most of the teachers came by bicycle :))

That is some gate! But a shame that only the wealthy can send their children there.

it sounds like an exclusive place to receive a good education. i've heard about places like that in the US, too - where folks register for a spot before their child is even born.

thanks for sharing their beautiful entrance, jeevan.

I bet it really counts more to know the right people, although I'm sure money helps. :)

Very nice entrance to this prestigeous school. I like the blue archway.

Today getting a seat for the kid in good school is as tough as getting a job that you wish to get.

Felicia said...

interesting post Jeevan and the arch and gate is very pretty. It must be a great school to have a long waiting list.

I no longer have a fascination for 'top/rich schools'. I think young parents are over enthusiastic to give their children the 'best'. It is to be seen how these 'best' children grow up and treat their parents in return.

I'm impressed by the story of this special school. Evidently if the school management is running it according to the highest standards of education,they've to be selective in admission criteria. Their fee structure'd be high too,therefore only wealthy and intelligent kids can seek admission.In the US also private schools are run on similar lines.

Registration while 'Children at birth' is enough to say about its superiority. I am impressed by the school's norms and conditions that strictly focus on quality education and give equal priority to everyone. That's a rare school in India.

it might be a popular school but not really a good school.. kids talk in terms of money, what car do your parents drive, how big if your house, blah bla... :(
