Ecole Globale Girls International School, Dehradun Review
This school has mastered the art of tricking parents. Don't get fooled by the fancy building..
Starting from the faculty right down to the standard of academics, nothing is what they portrayed. The principal Mrs Brinda Ghosh, the house matron, house mistress, teachers and even the help that is referred to as Didi's, have little compassion for the girls that are under their care.
When you go to visit the school, which we did not once but twice, they pretend to be a loving nurturing community. All they are interested in is gaining your trust and getting their hands on your money. The welfare of your child is at the bottom of their list.
Our 12 year old child, was at the school for 2 traumatising weeks in April this year, and as it was their so called settling in period we were not allowed to speak to her. However we were given repeated assurances that she was happy and thriving. The day we spoke to her, I found out the horrific truth, we decided to pull her out immediately, despite repeated protests from the principal and other faculty members.
All we requested for was our refundable deposit, as we fully understood that we would have have to forego the 4.5 lacs in advance fees that we paid, in good faith. Not only were we refused that, we were told that they were to hold onto our daughters luggage until the end of the semester, as it would look bad in front of the other children, who would tell their parents. Their was absolutely no dignity the way they handled the situation, all they were concerned with was holding onto our money, and told us that we would be given our nominal deposit back at some point after November.
Please be aware before you consider this despicable, money minded organisation, that they dare to call a school .
Those two weeks have left a deep scar on our daughter for which she is still undergoing counselling and left us deeply saddened as parents who got fooled into making such a wrong decision.
