Kid NRI's

More and more Indians living in western countries like USA, England are worried about their children getting westernised with every passing day.

Most of them are feeling the generation gap and hence are sending their wards to India for ‘Cultured Education’.

International schools have propped up specifically with these NRI kids in mind. These five star schools have carefully designed their curriculum with a mix of extra curricular activities like Music, Crafts, and Classical Dance etc.

NRI kids coming to India for a ‘Swadesi education’ have become important clients for such international schools. Such a school at Bangalore has more than 30% of its students from foreign lands. The fee ranges from 30,000 to 2,50,000 Indian Rupees per annum.

A big negative point about such schools is, they have minimal Parent-Teacher associations, almost zero knowledge about teachers qualifications, inaccessibility of highly paid Principals.
