Hello
I am moving to Lakehomes, Powai, Mumbai and have a 3 yr old daughter, so she will be starting in JR. KG. I have been trying my level best to get the forms for Hiranandani school, but not being a resident there, its difficult to even get the forms. Also i have applied for Bombay Scottish in Powai, but so far no response from them.

Are they any other Expat schools nearby ?
Do schools have any quota for foregin nationals ?
How easy or difficult is it from a US Citizen to get admissions in ASB , what are the fees ?

Any guidance with respect to school admissions is very highly appreciated.

Please , Please , Please respond

Hi,

Welcome to India.

Please check out mine as well as other posts with respect to schooling options. We had addressed queenbees's queries. Oberoi school is one of the options as you would be staying in Powai.

Schools in Mumbai?

Cheers, Raghu

Hiranandani and Bombay Scottish are Indian schools, you will find no expats there, maybe a few returning NRI's. Expat children are going to ASB (hard to get into, but next year they are starting an extra class EC3, for 3 year olds, so you might have a chance if you start admission now, very expensive though (US$25000+ for first year), Ecole Mondiale (Indian school but with lots of expat children, same price, far commute from Powai) or Oberoi (new school, cheaper, similar to Ecole Mondiale, but not so far, have heard good stories, but only a few expat children have been going there, so you don't really know how it will be).

ISAM0909 well schools do get a little tough. As hemmie mentioned ASB is expensive but not tough to get in for expats. Not sure how i can assist you but I currently do stay at LakeHomes myself and one of my relatives is a teacher at ASB.

Cheers

ASB has a waiting list, so it can be VERY hard to get your child in, especially if you don't put them on the waiting list long before you move!
