As regards whether fees of International school in Bangalore are high or not, depends upon what your idea of great school education is. If you want your child to study at a school with a global ambiance, top rate infrastructure and great faculty, you would expect to pay a higher fee than that of a regular school. 


Reasons why such schools may charge what would appear to be a higher fee


1. World Class Facilities and Amenities

An international school would typically have a sprawling campus in sylvan surroundings, the most modern and state of the art classrooms, computer labs, canteens, auditoriums and so on. Their sports facilities including swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, gyms and international standard running track would be nothing short of world class.

The buses that would pick up children from the homes would be luxury air conditioned ones and manned by well trained and extremely well behaved staff.


2. Top Rate Faculty

Such schools would employ the most highly qualified and experienced teaching and coaching staff available. They would likely be paid very handsome salaries for their services. You can expect that the teaching standards would be absolutely the same as what is followed in the best schools around the world. Studying under the mentorship of such evolved teachers is expected to have a very positive impact on the growth and development of the students during the years that they spend in the school.


3. An International Vibe

Most of the international schools in Bangalore have children from well heeled families hailing from different parts of the country. That apart, there are also the children of NRIs settled in different parts of the world studying in large numbers in these schools. All of that makes for a very international atmosphere in these schools which augurs very well for students who study in these schools.  

The fact that such students are accustomed to a certain standard of living means that the school in question has to pull out all the stops in making them feel comfortable and at home in the school. Ensuring that higher standard of living can be reflected in the higher fee charged by such schools. 


High School Scholarships

They can apply for scholarships in not just government aided  schools, but also the most expensive of international schools. Let us look at the two important types of scholarships available to students in the city of Bangalore.
