I 'll be relocating to Chennai and looking for schools on OMR stretch, preferably near to thoraipakkam. Also looking for a school where Tamil is not compulsory (even as second language).

As per as I aware, no, it's not compulsory. Many schools provide Hindi as second language too.

Okay so answer to this question is quite complicated.. Condition is- 1. CBSE school (taking grants or have land provided by state govt) -- Tamil is mandatory as 2nd/3rd language . Ex- PSBB 2. CBSE school (no grants or subsidy by state) Tamil isn't mandatory. Ex- DAV. Here you can even choose sanskrit as 3 language apart from Hindi, English 3. IGCSE or IB- Global schools don't have any mandate to have Tamil as one of the language, here you can choose any subject as per wish and availability. 4. ICSE - same like cbse, if no grant no tamil.. If grant then Tamil. Good luck in hunting

I wasnt even sure about this till I moved and admitted my son. Moving from NCR to Chennai and looking for same language of school is tough. Even though Tamil is compulsory at most school parents want their kid to learn Hindi, so you will get huge rush for DAV and KV here
