I am returning to Pune after 10 years. My daughter is in 8th Grade and son in 3rd grade. Can anyone help me with school and have you gone through such experience where in you join late and your kids get adjusted to school. My both kids do not know to write Hindi or Marathi but can understand Hindi and Marathi. I was thinking for 8th grade put on french language that way one language is taken care.

Appreciate response on same

So far my experience has been great. I shortlisted school with CBSE. Schools are cooperating and shall assist with Hindi coaching classes. For my daughter who is in 8th grade it will not be much challenge as she is going to have hindi only for 6 months and third language as French which she will continue.
For my son who is taking in 3rd grade will have Hindi and Marathi both but marathi subject is a optional one he needs to catch up with Hindi and again school is ready to provide assistance in the area
I shortlisted Global international school and ask my kids to appear for entrance exam which is aptitude test, English and Maths test which both the kids are clear. Also clearing exam is not a big tension even if they dont clear it is not a big issue.
On an average all schools have min yearly fee of 1 lac Rs and joining fees of 50,000 rs. You can go to any school such as VIBGYOR,Akshara, Indira or Global or Wisdom
Currently admissions are open for VIBGYOR and Global international school pimpri. I shortlisted Global international as I am looking for CBSE pattern
Good luck

12neha / GadewarSameer  : apologies for contacting you for a very old post. Which schools did you select. I am on similar lines where my kid does not read/write Hindi or Marathi. So have been hunting for options that will help my 7th grader. Thanks in advance SJ
