The gateway school is not an IB school. There is no IB world school logo. No IB school would miss out on displaying the IB world school logo if it is one. It doesn't even seem to be an IB candidate school. The website mentions that they follow American curriculum. But only for high school, it's mentioned that they follow AP. For the rest they have not even mentioned whether they follow the common core standards or any other state standards. Gateway school has CBSE, CBSE-I, CIE and American curriculum.
there is no curriculum which is free of second language. Even If it's not a regional language, at least it will be a world language like French, Spanish, German. In American gateway, it looks like they don't have 2nd language for elementary school. But as per the American curriculum, they are supposed to have a second language at least from middle school. IB and CIE also require a second language from middle school. So I don't think you can avoid second language.
Thank you, RoshMom! From what I have looked at, that is what I see.
Hi. Were you able to find any school as per your need in Chennai (No 2nd language). I have the same constraint. We are relocating from US move next year with my 6 year old. We are sending him to tamil class here.. But I certainly have not much hopes that he should be able to catch with 1st or 2nd grade Tamil curriculum in Chennai.
I am on the same situation..I have 5.5 year old daughter. We are planning g to move back chennai next year.next year she will be there in 2 grade.each and every day I am worried about the language .I heard cbse schools start hindi and tamil in lkg itself.so in 1 standard they should write answers in sentence. I don't know how she can pick up next year without learning letters.admission wise it's very difficult to get in north chennai side..I am looking some schools in omr side. But all the schools are expensive there..if you got any information please share with me.
My son is already 6 and when we go there he is definitely going to have his most difficult time. Try enrolling her in tamil classes in Tamil sangam. I can see some improvement. At least now he is showing interest to talk and say rhymes and he can write uyir ezhuthukkal
But writing a sentence is a huge thing :( I noticed somewhere in this forum that there are some schools starts second language only after 4th or 5th grade.
