We moved recently to Hyderabad(Manikonda) from US and I am looking for an international school for my 4th grader. I liked ISH but not impressed with their hefty fee and long distance travel. Please suggest an alternative to ISH or even better one (if any). Thanks!

Hello , We are moving from US too next year and we are looking for admission for my 4th grader too. I couldn't find any best international school so far. Every school has their own pros and cons. 
Here are a few I know you might consider
1. Rockwell International
2. Manthan International
3. DPS Khajaguda
4. Scholars International (Heard of this school only yesterday from a parent who moved from US 2 years back and are happy and satisfied.) yet to Visit and find more details.
There are other schools like Gaudium, Samasthi but I don't have any info on those schools and I felt they are too far from the city. 
If you want more details please feel free to email me at 
Wish you all the best.

@nrimoms, You can keep Sancta Maria as one of the option. It is purely IGCSE and in lingampally. 7 Km from Gachibowli botanical garden Signal, though the fees is on the higher end.

Are you looking for IB schools ?
Some schools mention they r IB on their website but IB is only for DIploma (11-12) Only few scxhools in Hyderabad have IB PYP, MYP and Diploma.

@srid27 Thanks for the link
The only school in the list is Chirec in Hyderbad!

Unfortunately Chirec is not IB starting from PYP , it only has IB for 11th and 12th grades. For PYP, we have schools like ISH, Niraj International , DRS, Oakridge, Sreenidhi,Aga Khan, Indus, Silver Oaks , Hillside ? Gaudium is a candidate ..Maybe if you can look without any filters in Search

Have done some ground work, as i am relocating and looking for next academic admissions for my kids.
As far as IB PYP is concerned, there are about 9 schools , but the challenge is only three got the MYP and  for IB DP we have 6 or seven again.

Then i have narrowed down where all PYP, MYP and DP are available. They are
Oakridge / Sreenidhi / Aga Khan
Agakhan being far away from city, now left with Oakridge and Sreenidhi.
While talking to Niraj, they have mentioned that MYP is in pipeline, but can not assure whether it will take 2 or 3 years or even longer.
Sreenidhi academic year starts in July and for oakridge it starts 20th Mar'17.

Have sent some personal mails to some of the group members asking what they have ultimately decided 3 years back and what has been their experience. Shall update once heard back from them.

Niraj school fees is definitely less compared to Sreenidhi and Oakridge though I'm not sure of exact amounts. Guess Niraj is around 2.5 lacs. Very few choices with IB schools so was focusing on Rockwell so far.
