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?

3. How did you overcome the timing part as schools end in US in June but in India they start in April?

Thanks in advance!
