Hi Klufie and Expatoz, I have been living in Goa for nearly two years and have children currently in std 8, 6, 4 & 3. Until recently they were attending Keshar Academy of Learning, located near Dabolim Airport. We chose this school when we moved here as it had small classes, was very casual compared to the government schools where kids are taught to pass exams, and it follows the Cambridge Exam Board. Unfortunately, the school has gone downhill this year, so much so that I have pulled my kids out of school for the last couple of months of the school year and am currently home schooling them. We are planning to send them to Sunshine School in June. We have had a look around a couple of times and met the teachers and headmaster and liked what we saw, and all our kids are keen to join. Before we make a final decision, we are going to look at the European School, next week, so will be happy to let you know our findings.

Good luck with your visits Indigosky! IMHO it is worth visiting the Euro school, which I understand has been a part of the Cambridge International system for many years. It's a lot smaller than Sunshine, with mostly expat kids. Sunshine has very few expats. Look forward to hearing your thoughts after your visits.

Expatoz, we are also going to moving to Goa Next year, and after our research it looks like Sunshine world school seems to be the best option. Its a great combination of holistic education, good infrastructure and it has established itself well in the past few years. Also the european school which we were considering too does not even have a website and sharda mandir has always been reputed as being very tough academically. We have also located a place near the school at the upcoming Kadamba Plateau close to panjim. Hope this helps!

In terms of schools down south we only looked at two in the palolem area however that's quite a long commute from margao - so may not be good for you. BTW there appears to be some nice areas to live on the coast near margao (benaulim colva etc).

We had an address of a school but is seems it had closed down.

Ideally we do not wish to stay in Panjim, the city, but rather in a more quiet area, closer to the coast. We have two children in Primary School who are presently attending an International Cambridge School, which is very multi-cultural. We were hoping to find something similar in Goa, but have been unable to locate anything.

We prefer a Private School, with a European type education, similar to Cambridge Affiliated Schools, and with a multi-cultural school population.

Does anything like that in Goa actually exist??

Thank you so much!
Yvonne

Just wanted to add to this thread now that we've been in Goa awhile and settled into Palolem/Patnem. We found an amazing school for our kids called River House Academy (www.riverhouseacademy.com) ... which was formerly The Paradise School Goa. They have a fantastic program set up for kids of all ages (kindergarden, primary & secondary) which is super creative & open while based on the Cambridge program so it meets all our needs (holistic, cultural and meets international standards). The program is completely child centered which we love ... with small classes and amazing teachers. My son has loved it from the first day and can't wait to start back after summer break which basically says it all for us! Check it out if you're considering moving to South Goa ... can't recommend it enough!

Hi
My wife is planning on moving to Goa with the kids this June. We currently live in Doha, Qatar and the kids go to an international school.

We are currently looking out for a school in North Goa and have heard good things about the Ardee school. Also, it is 5 minutes away from our house in Goa.

Just wondering whether anyone has any feedback on this school? Any information will help us.

Thanks

Garth
