The locality you are looking at has several schools but very few are actually good.

It is a good idea to move into a good CBSE school before 9th grade if you are going to be looking at living and working in India. i did a lot for research for my children when I first moved into this locality.

Here is a review I posted some time back on Parentree about Schools in and around OMR -

There are several good schools in and around Sholinganallur. I have listed them in order of my preference, you can easily visit each school and evaluate -

1. Babaji Vidhyashram  - A/C - reasonable fees - CBSE affiliated upto 12th standard with playground.
2. PSBB Millenium - Non A/C - reasonable fees - CBSE affiliated upto 12th standard with playground, toilets not hygienic
3. NPS - A/C - High range fees - ICSE affifliated without playground
4. Velammal  - A/C - medium to high range fees - not affiliated, no playground for now, factory approach to education
5. Narayana & Chaitanya - A/C - high fees - fully commercial, no playground, constant exit of teachers 
6. St.Johns Public School - Non A/C - medium to high fees CBSE Affiliated with playground, there is a religion focussed approach
7. Ramana Vidyalaya - Non A/C - very reasonable fees - CBSE Affiliated with small play area - English is a major problem in this school
8.Sacred Heart - Non A/C - reasonable fees - They are just trying to convert from State board to CBSE - English is a problem, they have state board mindset in teaching methodology which is a problem.
9. Barathi Vidyala - Non A/C reasonable fees - CBSE affiliated one of the oldest schools in this locality but teaching quality is slightly better than state board.

I found that it is tough getting admission in Babaji & PSBB however both are very good. Both my children study at Babaji. I chose the school because overall it checks off all my needs and they have a very transparent system with stable set of teachers.

All the best in your quest, remember to do the hard work of visiting and evaluating all options before you decide.

NPS International School has a huge playground now. They have purchased 2 acres of land next to school. The school is also planning to construct another building for early years and move them there. I am very happy with NPS for my 2 kids and so are all my friends who have come back to India.
