Most expats send their children either to general private schools or international schools. Private schools are generally a bit more affordable and will give your child more of an opportunity to mingle with local students. However, there is a lot more pressure to succeed (and compete) in this type of environment, and academics are often stressed to the point where little room is left for extra-curricular activities.
Some of the general private schools popular with expats in Delhi are:
