What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

The American International School is across from the American embassy and compound. There is also a British school and a French school. - Oct 22, 2017
American Embassy School (AES) is where most of the US Embassy kids go. We didn't have school aged kids, but everyone loved it. Lovely campus. There is a British school and a French one too. - Mar 15, 2017
Great schools and several choices. The American School is very highly rated. - Feb 14, 2017
Most people send their kids to the American Embassy School. Other options are the British school, the French school, and the German school. As for AES, it's an excellent school and community. - Nov 8, 2016
American Embassy School and British School are the most common ones for expats and operate at an international standard of education. The American Embassy school is one of the best American international schools in the world, and helps draw high-caliber international professionals to serve in New Delhi. - Sep 6, 2014
The American Embassy School is incredible. I can't say enough good about the quality of people and programs. We have middle school and elementary school aged children. The high schoolers also appear to be well adjusted and very satisfied. - Sep 3, 2014
American Embassy School. We came here for the school. It's not perfect and some people go a little crazy with their glowing about the school, but it is absolutely a very good school. One of the best we've had yet. - Aug 14, 2013
The American school is top notch and is a huge attraction for expats serving here. - May 18, 2013
AMAZING. The American Embassy School has a campus like a college and is beautiful. - Oct 21, 2012
The American Embassy School is amazing! Lots of good teachers and students. Grades from K-12, all with good classes. The British School is smaller, but I still hear it is okay. The French School is small and not as good. One should go there only if their first language is French; otherwise try for AES. - Sep 16, 2012
lots, great, expensive, but well run. - Aug 12, 2011
no experience, hear they are good and families seemed happy with them - Aug 7, 2011
We had a fantastic experience with the American Embassy School with our two children. They have excellent teachers overall and a good international mix of students. It is very conveniently located, safe, and closely tied to US Embassy. - Jan 8, 2011
Has a reputation as one of the best, but is very "teacher-centric." Also slowly becoming anti-American --there is a rising number of local families who want fewer Americans in the school. The school has developed a serious drug problem being openly ignored by school officials, but has now spilled into the streets so that American school kids are considered spoiled, rich hooligans and druggies. - Sep 18, 2010
The American Embassy School is supposed to be one of the best in the world. Many people extend for this reason. - Aug 12, 2010
The American School (AES) is excellent, and that is why most people come here. Kids miss the fun of going out and enjoying fast food. - Aug 1, 2010
The American School (AES) is excellent and that is why most people come here. My daughter who did not want to come here now wants to stay because she loves the school. It has lots of after school activities which is needed here as there is not much for teenagers to do otherwise. - Mar 11, 2008
