Friendly interaction right from the reception to top management, committed teachers, good balance of academics with other activities. Principal & the management are very innovative in their ideas. A promising school esp for the parents & children who believe in keeping a good balance between academics & extra activities.
LSB overpromises and underdelivers. The teachers are by and large, the kind that shout at kids, throw books and stationery around in rage. There is insufficient monitoring of students even in classrooms, let alone in corridors, and other spaces. There are a high number of unsupervised free classes.There is a high level of bullying, name-calling and aggression among children and practically no adult intervention. Feedback about kids' performance is mealy-mouthed, they say nothing negative or constructive. There is little gender-sensitivity in adult interactions with kids and insufficient role-modeling. Kids are labelled and education is not integrative. The kids from 'resource center' are called 'retards'. There is little attempt at character-building or even consistency in decision-making. Annual Day was a week before final exams, so that revision classes were cut short. There was also a week-long theatre workshop before Annual Day. This Day was shoddily conducted, with long delays, poor seating arrangements not to mention insufficient, overpriced food and drink. Have your kids go here only if you cannot get them in anywhere else.
Devi you sound very derogatory and unbecoming and if you are a parent of Legacy then its really a very bad reflection on your character. I have been a parent since its inception in 2005 and haven't been happier with the conduct and gentle approach of the teachers and Principal. I do not believe that things are thrown by teachers and such labeling happens or my child would have have told me. My child and all her friends have bloomed and become confident, sensitive and caring people. The academics is a wonderful blend and the school takes care of integrating the activities and sports to give an all round development. I am so proud that my child is a part of Legacy and having seen it grow from 30 children to 370+ speaks for it self! The Theatre Workshop was really beneficial and I know that revision was not compromised. It was the Sports Day and the cultural aspect was indeed innovative. It did start late, I agree, but seeing that the children were happy and enthused was delightful. All you folks out there, Legacy is a great place to be in. Make it your first choice...
The school is new and I have two sons going to the same school. The children came from a academically focused, very strict and disciplinarian school before and it was some what of a culture shock for them to experience academic & cultural freedom. The previous school put them down but the present school really gives them a lot of opportunities to blossom. The principal is very hands on and handles kids the right way. They have a good set of teachers but the focus is primarily on the senior classes now, so there may be few classes skipped at the lower level to accommodate the senior classes. The timing of the theatre workshop was poor but was well conducted and my children enjoyed the workshop. The workshop was optional for children but conducted by professionals. Next year they should plan to do the same but probably do it during the Jan period. The annual sports day was also an enjoyable affair for the children. What I like about the school is that they try to even make parents participate in various activities and makes school a fun place for children to be. The school definitely tries to give children a well rounded development. Focus in any specific area will have to be the responsibility of the parents.
Wishing the school all the best for the future.
Its definitely the kind of school we would have loved to have studied in. Ever since my son joined it 3 years ago as Vidyaniketan Academy we have been stress free and so has our son. The Principal is a gem. She knows just how to interact with the kids and is fair and understanding and has a really wonderful way with students. Legacy is not a great name, but we reconciled that the heart and soul is the same except for the Director trying to make it like all other schools and it has upset us, the thought that the Principal is the same gives us hope that it will be a place that children would love to go to even on holidays as was earlier. The sportsday was a bit late in the year. The children loved it and so we are happy. We parents need to support and help the school realise their vision and we agree what Samson has said about us parents.
Its sad to see that Legacy is not organised and as parents we feel let down that no info is given to us on time. Everything is last minute. Never seen this happen at Vidyaniketan Academy. The Principal gave prior notice for everything and was not a 'command' type of circular.Dont know its worrying to see a young no experience Director 'trying' to run a school. One thing to be parent and know first hand and another to know in theory. Just a bit of relief that the Principal is still the same. God Bless her.
Everything is last minute and we as parents are not even informed about vendors and expect we carry money around! Its all happening since the last year or so. VNA was more professional. Notices for fees raise, or books verything was sent at least 15-20 days before. Inexperienced Management. Too young to handle such a large institution. We wonder why the Principal is not being given her due. The Director interferes in everyhting I am told. Have to think over continuing. Good Luck and take over the reins Principal or your efforts will go waste
It is sad to hear from parents that the school is unorganized....i guess it is only the teething problem, since Legacy has moved into a new campus and there has been a flurry of new activities introduced for children. I hope by next year, the management is more experienced and things become orderly.
It would be great if there is a open house conducted for the parents, where troubling issues and complaints are discussed and sorted and so that the parents & school management can work together in making the school better.
Legacy as compared to VNA is more enjoyable & competitive for children. Thanks to the youthful, dedicated & friendly teachers, studying is an enjoyable activity too for the children. It is a very lively atmosphere inside the school.
VNA was also very lively and enjoyable and our kids loved it there than here. Understand new premises etc but there has to be planning and organising. The communication of important matters as given now is something that should have been done 3 months ago. I remember how Roopa used to give us ample time to plan our budget and also make provisions for increase in fees etc. Let this Director understand he is running a school and not a Company. Maybe its a wrong choice of profession on his part. I have reservations about teachers too. Dont know about an open forum as it may get chaotic. A better way is to write to the school. The Principal is really very prompt in replying and I feel so very reassured whenever I even exchange a few words. She has been the backbone and without her none of us will keep our children there and I speak for 80% of the parents.
sad to put 2 stars for VNA I could hv 10! Money making institution it sure is NOW. New school , infratructure expenses staff increase all we understand but its ridiculous money is being grabbed from us. No prior info. Whats the deal here? There are other options in Bangalore folks! Just that I feel bad for The Principal who started Vidyanikatan Academy and we loved it and sent so many. This new Director too young and egoistic and doent know where he is going and sinking the ship. Good luck to those who have joined and are there. Roopa Maam take care
Its very disappointing. Promises only from the Management. The Principal is down to earth and is clear about the vision. No one else. Its a lot of marketing gimmik from the Director. Accent and all but no content. Just rambles on and on. Wish the Principal was more the face of the school and the voice. Read a circular she had written on last day. It touched us and she is so sincere. Will wait another year and then we all will need to look elsewhere. Maam Principal please can we hear and see you more!
I am a student of this skool and i have only one question.. wat has happened to the old legacy?? i use to enjoy just going to this place.. but now.. i just dunno... one thing that has really put me off is the sudden fee hike.. not by 10% or 20% ,but by 100%!! this is not acceptable. we were told that there would be a gradual increase.. and this is definitely not " gradual".. isnt there anyone to stop this??
my daughter is studying in 3d grade, i feel the school is providing complete education . that means the emphasis is for sports, arts,not forgetting academics too is wellbalanced
this is a very well organised school. the management is very approachable. Mr saad is a brilliant personality handling the school, the children look up at him as a role model. i am very happy with the schools approach towards academics . unlike other schools in Bangalore the study pressure is handled so well the child never feels burdened.
The best compliment to the school is from my son - he says ' Dad I cannot miss school a single day ! '
Kudos Legacy for being the 8th best amongst 26 International Schools!! What a way to go and we are proud and happy that our children study at Legacy. Improvements are always a part of development and you will surely achieve the top spot.
We are with you and our particular congratulations to the Principal Roopa who made this happen with her vision of 'Doing things differently and not doing different things' which was what she had said to us and said she quoted this from Shiv Khera's book 'YOU CAN WIN'. She is so in tune with the children and their needs and understands with her soul. Fantastic blend and an overall development and rightly voted 1st for this. God be with you all and Roopa a special prayer for you to take our children to greater heights and make them beautiful human beings.
A school that simply lets children run riot.No supervision, events are very disorganised, parent teacher sessions are just an eye wash. Unimaginable increase in fees, no proper method of assessment-tests/exams etc.Children are suddenly burdened when they reach the 9th/10th grade.Most important , still no ICSE affiliation,but they advertise as an ICSE school.
Neither i m misleading to anybody
this is my bitter experience with this school.
sad to say this. the school is just a hype. my daughter attended the entrance test, she is the outstanding student in her school. very brilliant, they rejected her for grade I . if she didnt get then whom will they take. we are very upset , we know our daughter is a excellent student. fortunate for us for not putting my daughter in the school.
i want to provide this school sponsors for studying in world universities from rank 500-8000 , from 20%-100% scholarship , for this school authority should be interested,call me in 7829466596
