Hello!
My husband has a possible job opportunity in Bangalore and would be working in the HSR Layout. It is all moving very quickly and we are flying over at the end of November to take a look at schools, areas for rental accommodation etc.

I've spent a bit of time in India, but almost 20 years ago and backpacking is a very different situation to relocating with 3 children.

I've been trying to work out locations of schools from maps online, but would really welcome some advice.

Our aim is to try and cut down commute/school bus time as much as possible - so to try and have work/school/home a reasonable commute away. I really like the look of the Trio World School, but it appears to be on the opposite side of the city to HSR Layout.

A few questions:

+ which international schools are closest to the HSR layout?
+ are there any good residential areas close by?
+ are there any estate agents/realtors that anyone could recommend?

thank you!
Catherine

Forgot to say that our children are 8 and twins of 6, so a primary school with a broad and balanced curriculum and good pastoral care is more important to us than high-flying, high-pressured academic institutions.

The move in itself will be unsettling for them, so somewhere they can feel secure and accepted, very important.

Thanks!

We had moved to Bangalore for a year from the US. Lived around the Outer Ring Road Area.
My daughter went to Indus International School. A fine international school. TISB is another good school.
A good international crowd, teachers are good and lots of activities.
There is a commute but moving into any place means moving into a social group & forming new friends, networks etc so this was ideal. School Bus came right outside the gate and my daughter had a great time with friends on the bus.
Some kids carpooled to save the 45 minute drive.
But after a year we moved back to the US as it was a temp move for me.


Thanx, Sara

More on schools here http://r2blore.chitra-aiyer.com/2007...bangalore.html

Traffic is slow and impossible towards the center of the city so better to find, home, school and work close to each other or on the outskirts.
HSR is a good area but better places are on Outer Ring Road - more roomy and luxurious homes. Better crowd too.

Thanks so much - I've contacted both the schools and have appointments lined up for our visit next week.
I don't suppose you could recommend any rental agencies to contact too? There seems to be a new development, 'Adarsh Palm Retreat' - just wondered if you knew any good areas to look in.

Thanks again
Catherine
