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