Hi All, We are planning to move to Bengaluru from Silicon Valley, USA. We have 2 kids 7 1/2 and 3 1/2. Requesting for recommendations for schools and general insights so that the move is easy school wise. Our daughter has just started grade 2 and the curriculum is pretty simple here. Any tips/advice would be much appreciated. Best, Priya
