GEAR Innovative International school
Admissions at GEAR are open throughout the year. As we aim to keep the classroom strength at an optimum level for one-on-one student-mentor interactions, new admissions are given based on the availability of seats.
Lateral admissions into the school are based on the availability of a seat and the child's academic records and performance. Transfer cases are given first preference in these situations.
At present we have two campuses with GEM+ environments, located on GEAR Road, Doddakannelli (Gurukul - Affiliated to CBSE, Grade I-XII) & Somapura Gate (HUB - Grade I-VII).
At our Gurukul campus we follow the Elementary Montessori system for Grades 1 & 2.
Hence, Grade 1 admissions will be provided primarily to children from a Montessori background. For Grade 2, there are no admissions possible UNLESS the child is from another Elementary Montessori program. Due to this reason, we request parents to commit to continuing with GEAR for a period of 2-3 years in the best interest of the child.
We also offer the option of IGCSE for Grades 5-9 at this campus.
For more information on the courses offered at Grade 11 click here.
The admission procedure is common for all of the above and is detailed below.
1. Enquiry and Submission of Application:
The first step is to fill out an Enquiry Form online. This form asks for basic information about parents and the child as well as details of previous academic records of the child. Please click here to fill the enquiry form. We request you to have the scanned copy of the birth certificate and previous academic records (if any) to be ready with you before filling the form. The files should have the following nomenclature.
Previous Year's Academic Records: NAME OF THE CHILD/GRADE
NAME OF THE CHILD/ DD/MM/YYYY (DOB)
3. Prospective Parents Meeting (PPM):
On completion of the registration procedure a Prospecting Parents Meeting (PPM) is organised. During this meeting a group of prospecting parents get a chance to interact with Founder & Chairman of GEAR Foundation, Dr. M Srinivasan. He would give a comprehensive briefing about the school and its philosophies as well as answer questions put forth. The PPM usually lasts for an hour and is held once a month on either a Saturday or Sunday.
4. Interaction with the child:
After the PPM, those parents interested in an admission are given a personal appointment with the Chairman, which would either be on the following Monday or Tuesday. The child must accompany the parents for this appointment along with some of the child’s work if it is for and admission above the entry level. The Date of Joining and campus once assigned cannot be altered after this interaction. For any change it will be treated as a fresh application.
Once the interaction with the child is completed, parents are given 2-3 days to finalise their decision about the admission and to pay the school fees.
