This criteria plays a crucial role in admission because usually parents prefer to enroll their kids in a same school. Moreover existing parents forms a bond with the school which they chose for their first child because of its special features. Even though, it won’t be possible to accommodate all the siblings.

The legacy of school is three-generational with a large 40 year-old Alumni Association with 4000 life members deeply attached to the school’s Alma Mater. These people are the inspiration for the students of springdales. Points will be allotted according to the contribution they have made to the school and their bonding thereafter (20-25 points). Though, we regret that all children of Alumni like siblings will not be able to find a place due to limitation of seats.
