There are multiple options but I suggest Samashti International School. Nice Infrastructure, Fee less compared to other schools around. Nice and Supportive Staff. Mainly Quality of Education and Values are a big plus for this school. My Child is studying here for 2 years.

We are in the same boat planning to move this summer and we are looking out for schools in and around Gachibowli, kondapur, Tellapur etc. My older son would be in 4th grade and younger one would be in 2nd grade. Read a lot in google and spoke to lot of schools in understanding the curriculum. Well the Cambridge curriculum is more like how kids learn here in USA like project based learning, practical learning. we were looking for schools who offer IB, Cambridge and CBSE and of course 5 days a week.

Here are few schools which we listed and talking to them.

Samashti International School - we are in touch with admission counselor yet to receive the academic and fee structure detailsCBSE affiliation - STEM approach educationBelow fee structure is posted on their websiteRegistration fess: 500/-Caution Deposit: 10,000/-Grade 2 - 1,09,000/- Transportation - 0-10kms - 25,000/-Food - 20,000/-Grade 4 - 1,22,000/- Transportation - 0-10kms - 25,000/-Food - 21,500/- Admission fee details not mentioned on their website.
MANTHAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL - we are in touch with admission counselor yet to receive the academic and fee structure detailsCBSE and IGCSEBelow fee structure is posted on their websiteGrade 1-5 - 191,000/- Transportation - 0-15kms - 44,000/-Food - 30,000/-Admission fee details not mentioned on their website. Food and Transportation is optional and fees will rise by 8 - 10% every year.
Meru International School - Spoke to admission counselorThey have IGCSE and CBSEIGCSE till 5th grade and kids can choose if they want CBSE or IGCSE from 6th grade.5 days a week till 4th grade and from Grade 5 the 1st and 3rd Saturdays are working half day25 students per class 1:10 ratio so they have 3 teachers per class until 3rd grade and 2 teachers per class from 4th grade.Music - VocalSports - Cricket,, Foot ball,  Badminton and other AthleticsFees Details:Registration fess- 1000/-Caution/Security Deposit - 5,000/-Books and uniform - ,10,000 - 12,000/-Learning kits grade 1-2 - 1,900/-Learning kits grade 3-5 - 2,500/-Annual fees - 2,04,930/-Transportation - 0-10kms - 40,000/-Food - 37,400/-

We are also thinking of Oakridge International School Gachibowli - contacted them waiting for the details. 
Hopefully we would select one among Manthan, Meru and Oakridge since these schools has IB,IGCSE  and CBSE and teaching approach is more like USA.

Appreciate if you could share your insight as well...
