“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.” – John Dewey

You know something Before I completed my schooling ,actually studied in three schools Venerni, Airport school Calicut  .Kerala is a place where education has such a importance that parents are even ready to  take loans for school entry level education.In my opinion, the best schools in accordance to Indian concept is discipline and righteous culture .

Here the survey is listed on the basis of Quality of education and worth of money.

  • For kindergarten till 4 th:  where play, fun, creativity and language and pronunciation has importance.
  • Then 5-10 where schools help in imparting a positive attitude towards studies, where they instill in children an attitude to acquire knowledge.
  • Then 11 th and 12 th should be send to schools that really take the pulp out of them , good if there is entrance coaching also along with regular classes.

4.Global public school

Considered as MOST EXPENSIVE school in Kochi, perhaps in entire Kerala…. Even for KG, the annual fee is 1.5 Lakhs… For high school, the fees is 2.4 lakh annually.. For residential and International syllabus, it comes to a whopping 3.2 Lakh annually.

The problem is that, most of the students are NRKs. FCI OEN has lot of English and German nationalities working in key position and since FCI OEN’s HQ and their key facilities are nearby to the school, the area and Tripunithura has many of them who send their children here.

    Children are encouraged to speak in Malayalam which ,school have found that using Malayalam as the medium of instruction in lower classes leads to a significant increase in self-confidence and stimulates imagination.
  • The children sing old Malayalam ‘Tharattu’ which were re-discovered and resurrected from cold storage. We also teach Carnatic Music. Teachers are addressed as ‘Chechi’ or ‘Kochamma.’ ‘Ammachy’ is a term specially reserved for Sneha Z and Mary Roy (Sr.) because of their great age ! We greet each other with folded hands and a namaskaram. It feels good ! In the Nursery Class and Stds. I to IV, instruction is completely informal. Little pupils sit on the ground in groups, and a single class can tackle three different subjects simultaneously. Teachers move from one group to another encouraging self learning and experiment.
