NNS Chandra Paulina, I understand. It is a challenge, to decide one way or other. I am going to argue that if your job commitment is going to be in New Delhi, then it would be good for them to continue in India for their high school. Give them enough and more opportunities in United States as in summer programs, enrichment programs etc. For college I am sure you are thinking differently, right? NNS
