Shalom Hills International School
Add: Sushant Lok 1, Gurgaon, Haryana
Phone: 0124-4046471, 2573076, 9312883944
From: toddlers to class 8th. CBSE board
One word that came to my mind when I visited this school was – professionalism. Either the teacher ( Ms Arshi) [who was assigned the task of answering parent’s queries] received too many queries each day or she had more work to be done on that day, because she was answering all our queries without us asking them! Nothing bad I would say.
Rather she detailed us about each and everything right from school’s affiliation (CBSE), student-teacher ration ( 1:10 in primary), the school’s cut off for admissions ( 3+ for nursery till September 30 this year), classes referred to as Montessori 1, Mont 2 and Mont 3 ( for pre-nursery, nursery and kg) though the school doesn’t really adhere to “Montessori” teaching methods alone. ( though I wanted to ask, why are you referring to them as Mont 1. 2. 3 then?..just to be different from other schools?)
The fee structure was roughly 3k plus approx every month ( apart from a lump sum of 50 k as admission fee for toddler and play schoolers) However, for all parents who are into transferable job, they have an option of paying 10k as admission fee for 1st two years apart from the tuition fee.
The school building was really wonderful, neat, clean and a great piece of architecture. It does feel peaceful to go in the building ( that does have tough security at gate and you fee safe to send your child in such environment).
Here is what I found on Internet regarding this school from various websites:
“i’ve been associated with shalom hills school for past 4 years (that’s how old the school is) as my daughter is studying there. initially what attracted me to the school was it’s thematic painted rooms and it being close by to my home. in all these years, putting a few teething problems aside; i think i made the right decision for my darling daughter. right from the director to the teachers, everyone is very supportive and encouraging. they are also very open to parents’ suggestions on anything related to the school.”
“No great shakes..quite dull and dreary according to me. but then it’s a matter of personal choice and parent’s comfort level. “
“its a good school, managed by expert minds. has its usp as a niche segment.” ( reviews from parentree website)
“My son is currently studying in Shalom hills School gurgaon. but i am not satisfied with the school..the school has good vision and intentions but lacks quality teachers…can any of you please suggest a better school in gurgaon? How are the DPSs in gurgaon??”
