We are planning to move to Delhi by the end of this year. My son will be 4 and I am looking for some schools around south Delhi. I would prefer an international school but advice on any good schools is welcome.

What does 'moving' mean? Temporarily or are you Indian and planning on settling here permanently? What's your budget or is there an employer who pays the bill? There are some very good international schools but some have waiting lists and are expensive (about 20 kUSD/year). You'll get suggestions but need to be specific first.

I apologise for not being specific earlier. We are Indians who will be moving back permanently to India. I don't have any specific budget in mind as long as the school is good. We are open to suggestions on other schools also .

Well, I'm an expat and don't know the local schooling system very well but if the idea is that your son will grow up in India and study here then I guess it makes sense to enroll him in a good -private-school that follows the Indian curriculum and teaching method rather than a school like the American Embassy School in Delhi that strictly follows the US curriculum and methodology and is great for expats and well to do Indians (with a foreign passport I might add) who move around and/or intend to send their children to a US university later.

As I said, for obvious reasons I'm not familiar with the local system but I do hope some Indian members will chime in.

http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...-india-t58694/ (for my perspective on 'international schools'

What has changed in the last four years since that thread started is that there area scores of schools who have added 'international' before their name and moved into well appointed campuses with airconditioned school buses and other trappings to boot.

The education at many is suspect. Not talking about the real 'international' schools run mainly for expats, though the teaching at some isn't great there, either.

any particular reason you want International schooling for your kids? some of the pvt. schools in Delhi are pretty darn neat

I can recommend you
1. Modern School (Barakhamba Rd.)
2. Modern School (Vasant Vihar)
3. Sanskriti School
4. G.D. Goenka
5. Delhi Public School (R.K Puram, Vasant Vihar, Vasant Kunj)

or American Embassy School
and British School
What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left.

I don't have particular reasons concerning the international schools . Suggestions on good private schools are more than welcome. The criteria is that it should be good and that it should not be too far from GK 2.
