We are moving from US to Hyderabad and looking for schools for our son for 2011 academic year. our son is currently 3 years 8 months and will be 4 yrs in March 2011. We wanted to stay in and around hi-tech city
( although we haven't found a home as we are waiting for the school and willing to stay closer to close even if it is with 10 kms radius from hi-tech city).

After personally visiting lot of schools we short listed to the following schools :

HPS ( Begumpet)
Bharatiya Vidhya Bhavan
Chinmaya Vidyalaya
Obul Reddy

We have high regard for HPS and it has very good past record although we aren't sure on how is the school currently in 2010/2011. Since HPS starts from class 1 , one of our plan
was to start with Eurokids with LKG/UKG and try to HPS for class 1.

Can anyone suggest us the best schools from the list above in an order and suggest the best plan as we are too confused after visiting soo many schools?.
Also how hard would it be to get into HPS for class 1 ?? Ay recommendations work ? Donations/fees ? And would one of our ideas of EuroKids followed by HPS work ?

Please let us know.

Hi Info,

Yes, you need to prepare ur child for class 1 entrance test. It will be based on UKG syllabus. If your kid is in UKG in Eurokids, u need to teach him at home too for the entrance as i heard Eurokids syllabus/curriculum is less compared to other CBSE schools. So please ask for the syllabus at the time of taking  forms.

There are some HPS teachers too who coach for the entrance. I heard from my friend sometime back( 5yrs back) when she was preparing her daughter for class 3 entrance. You can enquire from the office staff when u go visit the school.

 DAV Public school is in Kukatpally and its new branch is in Miyapur.
Sentia -The Global is in Miyapur. The fees of Sentia is around 55K excluding transport.  Both are CBSE schools.

Following are good International schools
