To put it in the simplest manner, a fee is paid in exchange for goods or services. To get more specific let's come down to school fees, these are fees paid by the students that attend the particular school or to be more accurate the money paid by these students’ parents to the school in return for the services the school provides.
This is called by many different names such as a student fee, matriculation or tuition fees, etc. Depending on the facilities and activities that the school provides there can be other additional fees, such as a technology fee and student activity fees.
Schools and Fees in Bangalore:
There are around two thousand seven hundred and fifty schools in Bangalore; this speaks to the fact that there is an abundance of schools for the people to choose from. Coming to the fee system of schools in Bangalore, they can range between 20,000 to 35,000 rupees annually. The fees can vary depending on which school and what curriculum and amenities they offer. In some schools, the fees can even go up to 1,00,000 to 1,50,000 rupees annually. Yes, the fees can seem a little expensive but the standard of education and the quality of learning the students are given makes it all worth it.
Something that can get really agitating while applying for admission to different schools is that these schools' websites generally do not provide straightforward information about their school's fee structure. One is required to either get in contact with the school or apply for registration and find out. To parents and families looking to find out as much about the school before deciding whether it is right for their child and their budget this can be extremely vexing and that reaction is completely justified. But certain schools in Bangalore have broken this troublesome trend and provide clear detail and necessary information about their fee structure on the school's website itself, making the whole ordeal so much easier on the parents.
Let’s take a look at the fee structure of one such prominent school in Garden City:
The Global Indian International School (GIIS), Bangalore school fees have a structure that is affordable and easy to understand, which makes it the most in-demand school in Bangalore. The fees are categorized into: Registration fees, Admission fees, and Security Deposit – all of these are one-time payments that are not refundable. Then there are the Tuition fees, Annual term charges, and Transportation fees that are to be paid each term i.e. every 3 months.
There are also other such Montessori Schools that provide online information about their academics and fees in Bangalore.
Lastly, an important part to be considered is financial aids and funds. These are better known as scholarships. These scholarships are made available to hardworking and meritorious students. These are either provided by the government or even by local institutions and different national and international organizations, etc. They can be merit-based, need-based, athletic, etc. Many deserving students have been able to receive the education they deserve due to the help of scholarships.
