    I have checked over phone.
    1) SJPS: Response is very poor called two times and got reply as "No admissions entertained now and will start in November". and they end the call without hearing my next question and it happened in both calls both are different number. For them it may be 101 call, but we are expecting proper response from them since its a first step for my kid. Very bad experience.
    2) National Public School: Response is average and got answer for following questions
    - They will start admission process from this year November and this is for June 2015 opening.
    - Pre KG: kid should completed 3 years
    - Fee structure not yet confirmed.
    - Location is near (next to) Global Hospital.

    Today i visited NPS International Chennai. Earlier i got response like they will provide admission form from November 2014. and Yesterday i got information as they are accepting registration for 2015 -2016. Confirmed this with NSP and visited directly. i have downloaded Montessori application from from NPSinternationalchennaiDotCom. fee is 300 (They are accepting Cash). They requested Photo and i need to provide one to them. Fee will be 80K and single payment for every year. (doesn't include uniform and books). for Montessori no uniform for three years. if i want to proceed with KGs i need to wait for one more year (means form age of 4 -6 LKG and UKG). i opted for Montessori . Nice and calm school and i like the environment very much. Yet to check on SJPS.

  6. Noticed this thread bit late. anyway adding info that i have.
    Our kids are in Srujana Montissori near Pallikaranai (Periya Kovilambakkam to be precise; Need to take a road which comes on left "after" the Ford "service centre" in radial road; visible from the radial road itself- its close by). School has a website, a google search will help. started quite some years ago, and was in Velachery and later shifted to a rented one at Pallikaranai, and now in its own infrastructure since 2+years. Starts from pre-kg onwards, and now it has till equivalent of 5th standard with future classes being planned to come up year on year.
    It is a small scale school. Overall I have a good opinion about the school structure and management. Fee is ~10k per each of the 4 quarters. Uniform extra. Transportation extra (we have discontinued it from last year; was around 2k or so which is bit high, but probably due to less no. of pupil using it) , and very few- 2 or 3 extra/festival activities fee comes during a year.

    Last week we got Pre KG admission for our kid in AKG Public School, Jalladianpet (Medavakkam), he might start to his school from April'15 (tentative), another big step in our life.

    Coming to AKG Public school, below are my observations :
    --> AKG (A.K. Gopalan) Public school is Asan Memorial Association, which already got few CBSE schools and various educational institutions, overall they have got 50 years of educational experience
    --> AKG Public School started just few months back
    --> Got a chance to meet couple of teachers, they seem to be friendly and know how to handle the little ones pretty well
    --> Heard that, they have renovated Catering college and converted it as AKG Public school, saw the campus it was really good (for Schools I prefer green campus rather that corporate atmosphere)
    --> As of now they are taking admissions till 5th standard, in upcoming years they will be bringing upto 12th standard
    --> AKG got play areas of little ones and also they got play ground as well which is very rare in schools nowadays

    Whoever goes to see AKG Public school in person, surely they will put their kid in that school, this happens with me, my friend and couple of my neighbors, keeping fingers crossed and hoping the best of our kid.
