FAQ Admission

Frequently Asked Questions about Admissions to Rustomjee Cambridge

I have filled the Online Admission form. Does that mean my admission is guaranteed?

Filling the online form doesn't guarantee admission. We recommend parents apply to more than one school.

Can I have a tour of your school before I decide on the admission?

We are unable to offer you a tour of the school because of safety and security concerns. Also, given the large number of applicants, it is logistically difficult to organise tours. We recommend you talk to existing parents/students, or visit our blogs, and our Facebook pages to learn more about the school.

What is meant by sibling category and who is entitled to it ?

Siblings refers to children from same biological parents and younger siblings of students currently studying at RCIS. Sibling entitlement is only at Nursery level. If you don't take admission in Nursery, then at higher grades it will be difficult to guarantee admission. At all other grades , it would be subject to availability of seats and whatever other criteria is applicable.  There is no sibling category for students who have graduated already .

Why don't you offer admissions to students residing in Mira Road?

We regret that we are unable to offer admissions to students residing in Mira Road due to the large pool of applications we receive from our local vicinity.  We advice Mira Road applicants to apply to leading schools in their vicinity.

Why are you not taking in admission in Jr KG and higher standards? If there are no seats, why do you take applications for these standards?

We start our school at the nursery level. Since most of the seats are filled at the nursery level itself, we have very few seats available at Jr KG and higher standards. Given the natural progression, unless there are admission cancellation, we do not have vacancies arising at the Jr KG level. We allow parents to fill the online form, so that if a vacancy arises, we can connect with parents who are interested in seeking admission. We advise parents to apply to more than one school to avoid disappointment. 

I have filled the online form. When can I get an acknowledgement?

When you submit the online form, at the top of the form, you should receive a message stating "you form has been received."  Given the large volume of applications, it is difficult for us to acknowledge your submissions. We will send out an email after the last date of admission form submission, reminding you of the next stage. We request parents not to call the school office for confirmation of receipt of online admission form. We, also, request parents not to submit the online admission form multiple times.

When does your admission process begin?

Please look up the instructions on our website under Online Admission for the different branches - Dahisar, Virar, Thane. All the different stages of admission are displayed there.We usually announce the admission dates every year around July-August on our website.

School bus route availability to nearby suburb, Kandivali West. Given both of us being working parents and old grand parents barely managing kids' off-school hours at home, we don't have the necessary help available to manage pickup and drop-off from/to the closest available bus stop offered by your school at present. It is about 500 metres away from our current home location. We are exploring alternate arrangements as well however safety seems to be a key factor and a concern.

Bus route unfortunately will NOT be altered ,kindly consider safety options minutely before any admission decision, as the route will not be altered at a later date and any request in future for the same may not be entertained.
