Hi,
I stay in thane (mumbai)I have two kids studying in SSC board (sr. KG and 3rd Std). I want to shift them to ICSE bOard. As of now no plans to shift to any other country or state. but dont know might in future. Apparently there are few good schools in thane for ICSE or cbse .. which i tried getting in but could not and then had to finally admit them in SSC board. Now there is a new school come up EURO SCHOOL in THANE (ICSE). I am getting admissions there. the school infrastructure and teaching have heard is very good. my only problem is the fees and it is far away from our place maybe 30 mins by school bus. should i change from SSC and put them in this school confused.

Hi Geeta
thanks for the query. it would be helpful if you can tell me exactly why you are not satisfied with the current school? is it infrastructure, teaching quality, curriculum? please elaborate so that i can respond better.

30 minutes by buy is a bit on the higher side, especially for the younger child. however, it is still a reasonable number. i would not be able to comment on the fees though.

Hi,
Thanks for the quick reply. The main reason being the state board.School infrastructure wise is very good. Last year my daughter was in 2nd std and the class teacher was not there for nearly 3 to 4 months she resigned. The children were made to sit in groups in other divisions. the new teacher was appointed only in the last term. If we would ask for why the teacher is still appointed. the replacement teacher would answer the portion would be completed in time.

hello geeta,

in that case, your action is really clear :)
what matters most in a child's education in the type of school and the quality of teachers. the board and curriculum are secondary. because teachers teach a child to think and ask questions.

so if that is missing, than you need to decide at your end.
