Hi Subramanian

Hope you have found a good school for your kids.  I am relocating my son from Singapore IGCSE curriculum to Chennai as well.

I visited Gateway and APL Global schools.  APL Global campus seemed better.  But both schools are in preliminary stages with around 10 kids in class 8th.  I would like to have some suggestions from you regarding your school finalization.

Any other reputed schools on CBSE or IGCSE would be better than keeping with IGCSE?

You could mail to madhubindu.b@gmail.com

Madhu

All,
   I moved to Chennai 4th week of May 2013. We are staying in Indira Nagar, Adyar.
   We have admitted our younger child in GT Aloha in V Std and she is getting adjusted. It is a good school.
  For my older child, she did not have final mark sheet in June 2013. After visiting lot of schools (Chettinad Vidyasharam, St. John's Mandaveli, Bharat School Adyar, MCTM Luz) we got provisional admission in Chettinad Harishree Vidyalayam, Mandaveli. The principal told that there is 1-5% chance that the ICSE board can reject. Just 5 days back the school informed that ICSE board has not accepted my child. So, we are running around for schools. My child wrote only 2 IGCSE board papers (Math, English) . She got all A's in the X Std ICGSE school exams, We tried CBSE schools (GT Aloha, Bharat, St. John's), Matriculation (Sankara). We are now contacting IGCSE schools. Headstart said that there is no vacancy. We have talked to Gateway, Lalaji Omeaga, British International School. We are planning to contact Boston International, APL Global, MCTM.
Please suggest which is among the above IGCSE school is good for XI std?
Thanks

Hi,

The British International School Chennai is an excellent school offering the Edexcel curriculum since the year 2005. They are a small school with only 100 students guaranteeing individual attention. I was quite impressed with the quality of education and support that is provided for non-english speaking students and children who require additional support classes. Their ethos is good - strict with importance placed on discipline and respect, and at the same time they have an informal and approachable atmosphere making each student feel welcome and at home. Visit the school and meet the Principal and teachers - you will be convinced beyond doubt in their capabilities. They have a transparent culture. Maybe you can try reaching out to them too.
