When will the RTSE open, and with which classes?
The RTSE will open on 3rd July. We will start with classes in Play Group, Nursery, K1 (Junior KG) and K2 (Senior KG). We will also be offering daycare facilities to both our own students as well as from the community.
What is the curriculum at RTSE?
For Play Group, Nursery and K1 we have developed our own developmentally appropriate program.
We will follow Cambridge Primary for Grades K2 to 5. Cambridge Primary is an education programme for young learners that combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment. Cambridge Primary develops skills in English, mathematics and science. The curriculum is flexible with clear learning objectives.
We plan to follow the Cambridge Secondary 1 program for Grades 6 to 8, and the Cambridge Secondary 2 program (IGCSE) for Grades 9 and 10.
Cambridge Secondary 1 is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It gives schools a flexible framework for developing skills and understanding in English, English as a second language (ESL), mathematics and science. Cambridge Secondary 1 sets clear learning objectives for the first three years of secondary education in English, English as a second language (ESL), mathematics and science.
Cambridge Secondary 2 is typically for learners aged 14 to 16 years . We will be offering Cambridge IGCSE. Cambridge IGCSE provides broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects, using learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning.

How many students will have you in every section and how many sections do you plan to have?
We will have a maximum of 30 students in any class. There will be two teachers and an assistant in pre-primary classes. We plan to have 2 sections of Play Group and Nursery, 3 sections each in K1 and K2, and 4 sections from Grades 1 to 10.
Will the school provide transport to all parts of the city?
No, we do not provide transportation to all parts of the city. There are specified routes and pickup points. To optimize the route planning, no door to door service is provided. The transportation expense is not included in the annual fee and is only for the given routes. Transportation may not be provided for a location falling outside of the planned route. If the school offers transportation to such a location, then additional fees will be charged. Please have a look at the bus routes before deciding on admission.
What are the fees at RTSE?
Please contact our Admissions Officer for detailed information on the fee structure.
Will there be an increase in fees?
Fees within the same program (Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary 1 and Secondary 2) will be increased within the guidelines specified by the Education Department of the Maharashtra State Government. In case when a student shifts from Pre-Primary to Primary, and then from Primary to Secondary 1 and then Secondary 2, then there will be slab changes which will be specified.
