I think once u have visited few schools u will be able to set your criteria for the kind of school you want for your kids. Once you set your criteria right it ll be definitely possible for you to make a choice based on internet reviews and school tours.
I think if you are interested in sports facility you should visit lancers school which I specifically found safe and I being impressed got my kid into the school recently. Suncity abuse incidence made me realise that the primary year (upto 5 th standard) kids should be in a closely monitored environment rather than too big schools like Suncity or Scottish high. Keep amity and DPS out of your thought process completely and Amiown ( amitys pre school ) might give ur child a huge Hindi learning experience but will give no individual attention to the child or to concerns of parents. You might also try meeting Kunskapskolan about which I have heard all good things.
All the best
You can consider Following options :
Pathways World School : They established themselves now from IGCSE\IB curriculum.They have good feedback mechanism.They dont have many expat or foreign students but their syllabus and teaching methods are good.they have experienced teachers who understands Cambridge syllabus.
Lancers : They have very high number of foreign students but the problem is that their teachers are not very experienced.
G.D.Goenka : Please do not go to this school, they have very impressive infrastructure but their lessons are not planned.They do not send information about exams etc to parents on time.The school do not have much experience on Cambridge curriculum.Although they have lot of foreign students.
Heritage : Very good CBSE School, they have established themselves very well among the CBSE school.The school emphasis on academics and co-scholastic skills as well.
Shriram : best School of Gurgaon, very experienced and provides lots of opportunities beyond syllabus.
Well above observation/feedback is based on my own experience as I am a Tutor and has taught students from almost every School in Gurgaon.
Please visit schools and please make your own observations!!!
Hope you will find this information useful!!!
You can also consider Kunskapsskolan even I wanted to send my Son to an international School. But was unable to decide until i found Kunsskapsskolan, Gurgaon. I had visited their website and was quite impressed by their KED Program and their Curriculum which focuses on personalized education, individualized goals and creates students who take responsibility and ownership for their learning and these things are so much important nowadays.
here is the school's website www.kunskapsskolan.edu.in

Thanks so much for the your valuable inputs. Yes it really helped. I visited few schools. So far we are undecided however we have got an OK from American Excelsior, Shiv Nadar, Lancers and Banyan Tree. I was impressed with Hertiage in terms of support and so was Shiv Nadar.
I browsed the Internet for review and Heritage seems to be a tad bit better than Shiv Nadar since the latter is still under construction and evolving. However overall I got a positive response from both the schools. Will keep you informed.
In terms of Sports I felt that most of the facilities regarding tennis were not all that great( since my daughter plays tennis)
I agree with you almost 100% and I would also recommend Shiv Nadar along some of the credible schools. They are simple no frills but if you are willing to overlook some of the shortfalls this should also be a potential school to be looked at.
When I went to Shalom Presidency School to enquire about admission, I noticed that there were no CCTV cameras in school except the one in Directors office for security of her office while she was away.I asked the administration for the reason and they gave me some conflicting answers. Finally in one corner of school I could spot one camera but that is dummy with monitor connected to it. IT does not have provision to record anything either. Installed purely for show purpose.
I think you should try Matrikiran once
HI, We are moving too to Gurgaon, I am looking at a pure IB board, wcIh stress on extracurricular activities.Does shiv nadir have IB board>
Go for Shriram, Incase your kid is getting admission in. It is the best in Gurgaon.
So finally which school you selected and how is experience.
i am looking for a IGCSE school for my son for grade 6 .
your feedback would be helpful.
I am looking for IGCSE School in Gurgaon for my daughter class KG. Please suggest.
In which area you are looking..becuase area is very important to select a school that save travelling of your kid
Hi Friends, We are also planning to return from US to Gurgaon next year. My kids will be going to grades 4th and 9th next year. I would really be thankful if anyone can share their experiences with me.
1. I am confused between CBSE/ICSE/IB board. I have read online CBSE is better for cracking entrance exams after 12th grade but IB is better for overall talent development. We are not planning to send our kids to do undergrad in US so should we rather focus on CBSE or ICSE?
2. As with most of the NRI kids, mine also can't read or write Hindi language. I believe now many CBSE schools allow Spanish or French as an optional language instead of Hindi. Can you suggest few good schools in Gurgaon for both the kids that can cope with language barrier? Does ICSE give flexibility to chose other than hindi in grades 4th and 9th?
Thanks in advance!
