All details regarding admissions are given in the prospectus. If parents or guardians require any further information, they can approach the office of the principal with prior appointment. Dial +914347 229 723 to seek an appointment.
Parents/guardians can submit the duly filled application form for registration of the student’s name for admission at the school with a registration fee of Rs.500.00. This does not yet guarantee the admission of any student for any class. After receiving the application form with the registration fee of Rs. 500/-, the applicant will be assigned a registration number
Application review by admissions committee: The school admission committee will review all the applications in accordance with our admission criteria which includesage of the applicant, availability of seats in a class, class size, English language proficiency, previous class/school’s records and recommendation, whether the applicant has any sibling/s who is/are student[s] or alumus of the school.
The school reserves the right to reject an application if the student is unlikely to be accepted to RICE-MMS. In all cases, the student may be called for an assessment in order to determine the student’s educational ability and possible needs for English as Additional Language (EAL) assistance or other specialized help. It is not an entrance test. It is an assessment for the exclusive benefit of the student.
Approval by admission committee: After reviewing a candidate’s records and application, the Admission Committee may then grant approval for admission which includes academic, non-academic aspects and factoring in all above mentioned criteria. The results of the assessment will be orally shared by the assessment committee with parents/guardians. The assessment material is confidential and is considered to be the property of the school; parents will not be entitled to the content of the assessment report in writing.
Parents/guardians will be informed of admission decisions as early as possible. Once an offer has been made, the parents/guardians are given a period of seven school working days to accept the offer and pay the fees in full within the stipulated period. Installment of fee payment can be considered if the parent requests it in writing. The fee must be paid on time and belated payment will attract a fine. Non-payment of fee on time will not be entertained.
Please note: No application can be processed until all documents required by the school are submitted along with the application form. The school does not take any responsibility for any defects in the application form. The receipt of a dully filled in application form by the school does not imply automatic acceptance for admission.
Admission to the school does not guarantee a student’s enrollment beyond the initial year, which depends on the students’ satisfactory academic interest, progress, behavior, and availability of space. Allotment of students to various sections of a class is at the sole discretion of the School.
The admission office will give an admission number with date along with the fee receipt. Only when the student receives the admission number, the student is considered to be officially admitted to the school.
On the day of admission, the parents/guardians should carefully read the guidelines, rules and regulations of the school provided with the fee receipt and give their consent through signature.
If a student wants to withdraw from the school after admission for genuine reasons, a Letter of withdrawal with such reasons, addressed to the school Principal must be given in writing (hard copy) to the office of the principal by the parent/guardian who has signed the admission papers. If a student is to be withdrawn once the term has started, there will be no refund of fees. If a student is withdrawn on medical grounds acceptable to the school, 20% of the fees will be given in the event of absence for half a term or longer. If a student is withdrawn temporarily for a term for reasons acceptable to the school with due advance notice, a seat retention fee of 60% of the fees for the term will be payable. Seat retention beyond one term is not permitted.
Note: Requests for Transfer Certificate will be accepted only till 30/03/2017.
Languages in the CBSE system
The school follows the curriculum as prescribed by CBSE and students can opt for any of five languages as their mother tongue namely, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Hindi is a compulsory second language up to VIII standard. Their respective mother tongues will be the second language from IX to X Std. Tamil is a compulsory subject from class I from the academic year 2016-17.
Exemption may be granted to those candidates who have not studied Hindi during the five years prior to the admission at RICEMMS.

They should submit supporting documents and certificates from the previous school(s). As per government regulations Tamil is a compulsory
RICE-MMS’ student uniform consists of a limited range of clothing which includes footwear and head wear. The uniform identifies the students as belonging to RICE-MMS. Students are expected to wear the uniform during school hours, while traveling to and from school, and when engaged in school activities out of school hours.
The decisions about school uniform are taken in accordance with educational activities within and outside the school campus, health, safety measures and principles of anti-discrimination and equal opportunity. Aspects of the uniform related to safety, e.g. safe footwear and hats for eye protection, will be enforced as appropriate.
The school’s uniform policy has been designed, considering the economic, personal, social and cultural factors affecting students and their families. Factors such as physique or religious requirements are also taken into account in making a final decision on the design and fabric of the school uniform.
The school’s uniform policy and school uniform requirements are reviewed at least every two years and amended as and when necessary. Groups within the school community may also seek a review when circumstances change significantly or issues arise. Positive reinforcement and encouragement of responsible behavior are the preferred approaches to ensure that students willingly wear the school uniform.
Everyone has a role in setting the standards of discipline for the school. In this regard teachers and other school staff act as models of appropriate standards for students. They are expected to dress in a professional manner at all times. Severe action will be taken for non-compliance with uniform rules and indecent dressing. Arrangements for the supply of uniforms will be decided by the school and no exemption will be given to any student.
A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students.
Students should wear appropriate uniform which includes protective footwear (scouts and guides and other special groups should follow the respective group’s specifications).
Shirt should be tucked in and collars flipped out over the sweatshirts.
Low hip trousers are prohibited for any student
Make-up, including nail varnish, and jewellery are prohibited
Girl Students with pierced ears are permitted to wear only one pair of plain stud earrings.
No extremes of hairstyle – more than 2 cuts, too many clips or bands, braiding, excessive use of hair gel, spike, Mahican, tramlines etc.
Long hair must be suitably tied back. The hair should be properly dressed/trimmed periodically
Watch or any other electronic gadgets as personal needs should not be a part of dress code.
The school will respect genuine cultural and religious marks.
Parents are expected to make their own arrangements to bring their children to school and pick them back home daily. The school’s transport facility is very limited and therefore not all admitted students can avail this facility. Admission of a student into the school does not automatically guarantee the use of the school transport facility. A separate agreement has to be signed, if the facility is allowed to be used by the student. It should be understood and agreed to by the parents/guardians in writing that the transport facility is only temporary and will be withdrawn without assigning any reason whatsoever. The cost of this facility is to be borne by the parents. An annual expected cost is worked out at the beginning of the academic year which is to be paid by the parents. Once in three months, the transport operating cost will be worked out based on the cost of fuel and other expenses. If there is an increase, the parents will be intimated accordingly and the increased cost has to be paid by the parents in one installment.

Any clarification on this release can be sought from the office of the principal. This release will be updated periodically with modification of policy change, operational procedures and guidelines which will cancel and supersede all previous releases.
