Admission Tips

Before the academic year begins parents are often seen busy with school admission. School admission can be a stressful time for parents so we thought we’d make it a bit easier by providing a step by step guide about the admission process details. So the admission process begins with finding the best International School in Bangalore.

Every year, millions of parents look for top schools for their kids nearby. 

GIIS receives over 10,000 admission inquiries every year. Different parents have different criteria to choose schools for their children. So here is the helping guide for parents to choose the top schools for their kid’s School admissions in Bangalore.


Important Criteria Parents Should Look at While Finalising the Best International School in Bangalore


● Curriculum

● School Location and Distance from Home

● Facilities

● Fee structure

● Comparing and finding the best schools

● Applying for admissions


Curriculum

Selecting the curriculum is the most important criteria for the parents and the first step in identifying the best International School in Bangalore. Every parent’s common question is, “Which board is best for my child”?. Understanding the child’s capacity and interest is of the utmost importance while selecting the curriculum.  

However, CBSE is considered to be the best syllabus in India and the syllabus is according to International standards so it is beneficial to students who are looking for higher studies abroad.

Also, having the best teachers and support faculties is very much important to implement these syllabuses to the best of their abilities.


School Location and Distance from Home

Location is another factor that parents need to keep in mind while selecting the International School in Bangalore. The top school which is 20-30km away from your home doesn't make sense at all. Travelling 2-3 hours daily will make your child tired especially during traffic or monsoon season. In case of an emergency, it is always better to find a school that is within 10km.


Facilities

Facilities offered by the school are essential as students will be spending half of the time in school or at least 10-12 years of their life in one school depending on the school levels

Having best facilities such as a spacious classroom, washroom and good hygiene, proper canteen with good quality of food and drinking facilities, computer and science lab, arts and music auditorium, sports grounds and other important facilities so that students have access to the best of facilities.


Fees structure

Parents want to provide the best of everything to their kids especially when it's related to education and can go beyond their limits just to fulfil their kid’s dream.

But most of the time schools have hidden charges on the fee structure which is later revealed after admission is done but in GIIS the school fees are transparent and do not have any hidden charges. It is also quite affordable when compared to another International School in Bangalore.

Also, there are few more points which parents need to consider such as 

School Safety and Transportation, Student-Teacher Ratio, Extra-Curricular Activities, School’s Rating and Reviews etc.

So once you have finalised a few schools, a personal visit is necessary to get a clear idea about the school. You can then compare with the checklist and the last and final step is to apply for admissions.


School admissions in Bangalore

The school admission process differs from school to school, so it is essential to check the details thoroughly on their website or get the proper information from the counsellor so that you do not miss the important dates.

Generally, the school term begins in June but the new students are accepted throughout the year depending on the availability of the seats. 

The admissions team begins reviewing applications for the new academic year in January so that students can be shortlisted and start their term in June, so it is recommended that parents should submit forms as early as possible.
