Information about the school

At the International School, we place students at the center of their learning experience. Remarkable educators, resources and opportunities equip students with the skills they need to explore ideas, initiate projects and generate insights. Our students are empowered to take charge of their education and to prepare for a future they themselves create.

 

We infuse a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit into every aspect of our school. Combining a dynamic American approach with the International Baccalaureate program and India’s rich culture, we offer an education as rigorous as it is inventive. Together, our students, educators and parents are creating a new education paradigm through progressive teaching and learning practices and relentless collaboration.

 

We engender risk-taking in a culture that inspires students, parents and educators to experiment, to explore and to learn in action. Our deep commitment to capacity building, ethical behavior and innovation empowers every member of our community to question convention, master relevant skills and address real-world issues. It has a vibrant learning community — forward thinking in every sense — that draws on the lessons of today as we prepare to shape tomorrow. At the school, learning has a purpose: to empower students, parents and educators to realize their potential and enhance the lives of others. We explore cutting-edge ideas and use resources with intention — to transform the way we learn, create and interact with present-day realities and tomorrow’s opportunities. From technology integration to arts programming, service learning to athletics, we foster the intellectual, social, ethical and physical development of our students. We are one of the most rigorous – and unconventional – international K-12 schools in the world. We blend American educational approaches with the International Baccalaureate (IB) program to offer an education as rigorous as it is inventive.

 

Our educational program empowers students to take charge of their learning experience and to develop essential skills for the future — the ability to synthesize information, to generate insights and to address real-world challenges. Ninety percent of our students earn the IB diploma each year and more than 95 percent of graduating seniors enrol in their top college or university choice.

 

We have assembled a remarkable team of educators — teachers, researchers and staff — with the skills and spirit to impact the lives of our students and the future of education. With a 5:1 student-educator ratio, we cultivate an empowering learning environment Individualized for each student. Ninety percent of our teachers have international teaching experience and two thirds hold advanced university degrees.

With our home in India’s vibrant cultural and financial capital — and a student population drawn from more than 50 countries — it is a multicultural learning hub. Our educational program works across cultures and disciplines to explore the ideas, skills and technologies that are shaping our world.
