Sri Venkateshwar International School, Sector 18, Dwarka / Working of the school

1 India Review updated:

The school has given us worst possible experience. We are absolutely disappointed and frustrated with the poor level of academics as well as adhocism in managment of the school.

There are fundamental flaws in the curriculum of the school. The basic foundations of students are not being built- leave alone strengthened. The Child of VIS-18 doesn't stand anywhere in academics or extracurricular activities- not just with students from branded schools but even those from local schools.

The school changes its timings like a chameleon.

When children are forced to have lunch at 4:00 p.m, the school doesn't feel bad.

The school has shortest academic session- it closes its academic shutters by end of February. It gives more than a month break to the child before the next session begins. When April comes, the Summer vacation mood has already set in and the school just passes time.

The schedule in the Annual Syllabus booklet is never followed. Worse, its textbooks don't match the syllabus to be covered. A book is referred and is NEVER TOUCHED during the entire session. Sudddenly the school comes across new books and they are referred in the MIDDLE of the session. They don't know WHAT is to be done and HOW it is be done.

The school loves its building, its buses, but has no love and care for children.

The children can be sent TWO HOURS early without any notice to the parents. THe PTM can be scheduled by ways of SMS alert- a paid service- that is optional to the parents. The parents who have not subscibed to the SMS service get no information. So, the PTM is scheduled DURING HOLIDAYS AT A SHORT NOTICE only for subscriber parents.

Worst, there is nobody whom one can approach. There are clear instructions given to the front desk not to allow parents to meet prinipal (who changes every 4-5 months). It functions like a sarkari daftar where if you haven't met junior babus, you have no right to meet the senior one. And if one is lucky enough to get a chance to meet the junior one twice, you will be labelled as "destructive" parents and what you say is trash for them and they done't want to listen coz there are hundred other parents who are not complaining and your complaint goes unheard. There is no parent-teacher association.

Even on the PTM days, principal are so busy with their works that they REFUSE to meet the parents. THe MADAM is free only ONCE A WEEK to meet the parents and she may not come on that day. Appointments are farce.

If the school was to be described in one word, it would be "PAAGALKHANA".

The future of the school can most probably be one of the thousand schools which are running just because of huge population that Delhi has. IT can NEVER beceme a CHOSEN preferred destination school.

    I was a student of VIS sec 10 dwarka and the school is a disaster. I can give you a first hand experience of what happened to my classmates after passing out from this so called school. Only 3 of my classmates got through a college in delhi university. others scored below 75 percent in the class 12th board examinations. The average marks in english was as low as 60 percent. They claim 100% first divisions [ above 60% is first division]. Teachers do not know how to handle their senior classes. A boy from my batch got slapped by the head mistress in front of the entire school for some stupid ASSUMPTION that she made about him stealing class 7th examination papers. Why will a 12th grader do that?It was proven in the end that he was innocent. All the good teachers have left the school and the remaining ones just suck up on the principal and ask the students also to do so. All the parents must know that it is not worth wasting time, money and your child's future for this school. IT IS A TOTAL WASTE.

    I do not think that the complaint above is correct.THE COMPLAINT IS TOTALLY OBJECTIONABLE. I am a student of SVIS-18 and I do not see anything that you would say it a paagalkhaana.IF I AM WRONG, TELL ME ANY ONE SCHOOL IN WHICH EDUCATION IS DONE THROUGH SMART BOARD.MID DAY MEAL IS PROVIDED TO SMALL CHILDREN.Tae-kwan-do is taught for free, swimming classes are free, extra curricular activities like aerobics can be only EXCLUSIVELY found in this school.PLEASE TELL ME THE DEFINITION OF A "GOOD SCHOOL", according to you...AS FAR AS ADDRESSING THE PARENTS IS CONCERNED..CIRCULARS ARE SENT 1WEEK EARLIER..the school has won soo many state level trophies.. WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED FOR A "GOOD SCHOOL" in your language..

    YA i m agree.Sri VIS is really like a PAGALKHANA.YEsterday was the PTM but no one was there to approach.MADAM coordinator was on leave on the day of result .and MR.CHAIRMAN was not there.actually they r not running the school .It is a BANIYA SHOP.wenever u wana meet principal there is always new face.
    For this session books are too younger child is in class II and book set is around 3000.wats in that worksheet books so many mistakes in that book that is for 175 .its cost should not be more then 25RS.
    i bought taekwando Dress for my elder son & he has not used it once.becoz last year they were not having this activity.its not a school for manegment its just a business to them.

    i dont agree with the dissatisfied lot . the problem basically is with human nature . if the teachers are strict then the parents will take their childs side . the effort from the parents side should be of effective impact . Parents should cooperate with the Teachers . Always be aware that the child should not mis communicate. There are other schools as well who charge for the costumes rather every school does. My experience so far with the Teachers of SRI VIS Sector 18 is very good . The teachers really put in great effort.Without knowing the reason you cant condemn the COORDINATOR for not being there . Any one can anytime be in a situation like that . We as parents should also put in our efforts rather than criticizing the school only.

    Yes I agree with the complaint.
    This school is just a money making buiness for the management. Teachers never corrects the mistakes done by students in their copies. I have to check my son's copies and correct his mistakes. Most of the students from this school goes to a coaching centre in Dwarka and teachers also recommend that coaching centre. Anoher way to make money or else why would they allow this caoching centre to put a stall inside school during PTM's. Teachers and principal has a standard reply that since no other parenst are complaining its you or your student's fault. I am totally frustrated with this school and looking for other options for my son. Does any one knows any other good school in Dwarka?

    Dear Parents -

    Sri Venkateshwar International School, Sector 18, Dwarka is a profit center for Director Mr. Rajpal.

    I think few above who have written in favor of the school, the emotions in their responses make me believe that either these are some near and dear ones of Mr. Rajpal or himself or any one who works for him is forced to write.

    Some of the great highlights of the school which make this school stand out way ahead from others.

    #1. Check this out---> and Believe yourself . The standard of site speaks volume about the international standard of the school. Most or all the information is pretty old and carries no value in today's context. Most of the time this site is down so you will have to be lucky to see the face of this site.

    #2. I can understand the problem of Principals not being accessible to parents. How can they provide you(parents ) appointments when they are not sure of their stay at school. 3-4 Principals changed last year I expect a better bigger score this season-2.

    #3. Principals/Coordinators are master hide and seek players, and its always your(parents) turn to spot them out on PTMs. Parents always loose.

    #4. Some of the books that school force parents to buy are never taught(thanks for providing this info in earlier thread- this firms up my belief).

    $5. I am amazed by the excellent communication of the school for fees. You receive invoice for fees through courier if the months happen to be vacation days. No other matter/information attracts such a gravity and dies out way before reaching you. One can draw a clearly draw inferences from such intentions.

    #6. This is very interesting - some times the copies don't get checked for complete year and teachers wake up at the end of session. This is called international way of working in real sense.

    There are innumerable points which can be added to the glory of this school, i have attempted to highlight top few.

    Can anyone suggest -if there is any effective government agency which really can help parents straighten these folks who run these(schools) money minting shops with their international ways/styles of earning.

    Dear PS21, are you there to spoil the image of Sri VIS working for someother school?
    Are you annoyed with just Sri VIS school or the entire education system of India? It looks like you have very elaborate survey of the schooling in Delhi or in India. If the compliant is just with SriVIS, just list down any two three school where you think you won't have complaints. That will be so nice of you and beneficial for all other student folks. If it is against the Indian education system, then something more need to be done than just cribbing about the petty matters.

    Point 1 to 3 are universal problem if you happen to go any school, there is such a shortage of good Principals. Remember last year Principal abolished the requirement to submit models during summer vacations. People just buy those to submit it to school, instead school asked to submit information gathered through research.

    Point 4 - Yes some books are meant to be read at home only.

    Point 5 - Sending fee invoices by courier in advance is definitiely one good thing school does.
    Point 6 - There are PTM for that purpose, go and talk about it.

    Hope this helps you.

    Genuinely there are numerous problems surrounding the school. The teachers are inexperienced (may have been appointed with the condition of getting half the salary)., they don't pay attention to the child's individual requirements, copies are seldom checked, some days go without any homework following a day of heavy homework. The school diary which they affectionately call as almanac is empty and the pages are as new as it can be sold again.
    You enter the school and the torture starts, one guard will torment you trying to test his own English speaking skills on you. One does not understand whether to respond to him in hindi or engish. You go further, the school receptionist is ruthlessly rude. I have committed one big mistake of my life by admitting my child here, don't play with your child's future by believing on the school's so called "pseudo-international" claims, go for some established ones, you'll be saved both from emotional as well as the financial ordeals.

    I absolutely disagree with all the complaints. this is the first year fr my kid in the school as he shifted many school earlier due to our tranfers, but i m most satisfied frm its pattern than any of his previous school. balance between studies and other activities is the best part. and i dont know why people complain if they saw principal dancing on some occasion. is she becoming less of human being as she is a principal? dont you all want teachers and principal who guide your child like a friend rather than a hitler. i find the principal's view (which i heard on annual function) is most approriate fr todays world.
    As far as time shift i never experienced it happened only after winter vacation which is good as kids are nt comfortable going school at 7 in the morning. i have other child who could not get seat in the same school and studying in another school comparing bth the school i will always prefer svis sec 18

    Yes, I do agree with Parent (mamb), the school is giving
    full attention to the children, my cousin daughter is studying in VII class . I was surprised to see that she was taking extra
    classess after school hours and the teachers are very much
    cooperative. My child studying in Pre-Primary and I m very
    happy with the school management and teaching faculty.
    I understand one thing, grapes are sour for someone.

    I am new to Delhi and I have seen top international schools, first hand, almost all around the world. I have to give benefit of doubt to the complaints listed above when I interacted with the principal/head today at sec-10 VIS kids. The staff including head was very disgraceful in the way of interacting with parents who were there to inquire pre-school's selection/wait list. The staff had no logical arguments to convince/explain why points reference system wasn't put-up on the board together with the list. They kept on asking to write applications by each parent who was standing outside who believed that their kid was scoring more points. The school may be right/fair about the list but they were in no way humble or respectful. The whole drama at the school gate was something similar to parents being baggers and The head being the house owner who will decide whether or not she would like to give anything. She enjoyed arguing even though it was illogical and I think she knew it. I became very nervous that if this is the they treat parents, how do they treat kids. And I am not the only one, there were at least 25 parents this morning. Anyway, if the teachers are like that what kid of value system will they impart to the kids especially in this tender age of nursery. Those who are joining, all the best. Pls do post your experiences.
