Am looking for a school on Sarjapur road for my daughter who is Aug 2006 born ( 6.5 yrs for 2013 June ).
I do not have any preferences on CBSE or ICSE since I do not know the pros and cons ..
Seems like am too late for DPS East .. How about Greenwood High/Primus/India intl ..?

Fees around 1 lac/pa fr nursery..princi n headmistress spoke to us n found thr teaching methods impressive. Wat I liked is d campus n combo of IB n CBSE. IB is till 5th std ..thn u can move to cbse if u want to. Hav finalized thm fr my kiddo.
Would request u to personally visit each schools n make a decision.
Thanks a lot . Not yet in Bangalore. Definitely need to go and visit them in person.
Btw, would you be able to tell me the pros and cons of CBSE/ICSE w/ the current system? And what about IB? IB is if you're intersted in foreign education , is it?
Would be great if you could shed some light on these..
How about the age group? I see different schools following different age groups for 1st std.
You can look at Inventure Academy. My daughter has completed 1 year in the school. I am very happy with the school. Its fees for Grade 1 is around 2.6 lakhs (including food & transport). It was ranked 17th among the Day Schools in India by EducationWorld.
Please go through the following link for the rankings of the various schools in Bangalore http://www.educationworldonline.net/userfiles/India's%20Best%20Day%20Schools%20league%20table-pgs(3).pdf
Regarding the age grp..its generally 2.8 -2.10 yrs n above for nursery. A kid has to go thru nursery, lkg, ukg n thn to Std 1. So its approx..6 yrs fr 1 std. Since u r not in banglore..u can contact d schools over phone /e-mail n collect info.
CBSE n ICSE both r Indian boards n widely known. Ppl say that ICSE is vast syllabus compared to CBSE. Also in depth studies r better n CBSE.
Regarding IB ..yes its U.K. curriculum...the main advantage of ths curriculum is do it urself methodology. . Helps n allobver growth of children. U can google n collect more info on them.
If u can giv lil more details on Inventure. .wud lov to hear.
Thanks Pia and Happymom..
I do know about CBSE and ICSE , but just wondering whats making people choose one over the other these days ..
Infact I have myself done ICSE and ISC and I have enjoyed the syllabus .. be it Math, Science or English. Hindi was quite tough for me( more because Hindi is not our mother tongue).
But I hear that in Kerala , these days CBSE is preferred because the Med/Engg entrance exams in Kerala is more based on CBSE. Is that how its in Karnataka too?
Need to start calling up schools and getting the details from tomorrow.
Thanks again for sharing info here :)
I know GIIS . My daughter here goes to GIIS Singapore. Have been quite happy w/ the school here till now; though sometimes I feel the syllabus is vast and not enough studying happens in school. But the children come back home very happy .
I can consider GIIS bangalore ; was just worried about the fact that its their first year .
SHould defnitely call them up and get the details ..
We have also decided on Oakridge. My son would be going to Nursery and my daughter to Grade1.
Just thought I'll let you know.
Have you thought of Inventure Academy? I would suggest that you should go & take a look at the school as one of the options for your child... The school is also located in Whitefield/Sarjapur area & is affiliated to both ICSE & IGSCE. I know, it's a tedious process of going around and looking at various schools & then choosing the right one for your child.. Both my kids goes to Inventure academy & they simply love it... In terms of academics & co-curricular activities, it's a good one along with good infrastructure.
My kids study at Inventure & I understand the dilemma a mother goes through while deciding on a school... after all who wants their children to crib about going to school every morning... this is the second school for my children in 4 years & i would say from my personal experience that it's a great school for anybody who looks for international standards of education. They give equal emphasis on academics & extra curricular activities... The food served at the school is also nice & healthy..
There are many international schools has poped up on Srjapura area.I would suggest you to go and personally visit them but before that be sure about the curriculum you are looking for.Below are the few of the best schools in that area...
Oakridge - CBSE (starting this year in Bangalore) Not sure about academics
Indus International - IB School ( Good School, but expensive)
Greenwood High Interational School - IB , IGCSE ,ICSE (Awarded Best School in 2012) but very strict on admission
Inventure Academy - IGCSE,ICSE ( Mixed Reviews)
DPS Whitefield - Typical CBSE School ...mixed reviews
Primus Public School - One of the good Indian school..strict on admission
1. Ask for class size
2. Experience of teachers
3. No. of Extracurricular activities
4. Co -curricular activities
7.Insist for tour and look at the facility,class and infrastructure etc.
All the Best Parents

I have confusion between choosing Chrysalis High & GIIS for my son. I know that both of them different in their syllabus (ICSE vs CBSE). I truly don't have knowledge regarding which syllabus is better. Please share any information that can help me decide a school and information regarding the school itself.
Thanks in advance.
