I am an overseas Pakistani and I am coming back in July next year. I have planned to live in Bahria town purely for it's security. I checked schools in Bahria but could find only one. Can somebody guide me about the standard of the school, as my kids would be going to class 8 & 7 and they both can't read or write Urdu at all, or is there any way they can avoid Urdu as a subject altogether.
Please I need your help and suggestions. I chose Bahria because of it's security only, I am not from Lahore but I want to settle down here
Kindly advice. Thanks to all of you in advance.

Urdu and Pakistan Studies are exempt for student who have foreign nationality in most schools like beaconhouse.

Welcome to Pakistan Mazhar Sahib.
You are right that there is only one school in Bahria Town (Bahria Town School) Lahore. It is a good school and many people like me are satisfied with it though some people in Bahria Town are not satisfied with the standard. Unlike UK & USA, parent's/home role in Pakistan is more important than teacher/school in the success of kids.
Bahria Town school offers alternatives (Easu Urdu) for overseas students who are not at home with Urdu. You may contact school office on phone number 00924235341641 or 00924235341643 to confirm it.
Bahria Town Lahore School is also discussed in following posts:

Quality and standard of daily life necessities (Schools/shopping Malls) are much better around the area of ASKARI-10 area.
