International Schools in India

International Schools in India are being established to promote international education to its domestic and foreign students. International Schools in India can be broadly classified into two categories. One category contains the list of schools that follow a national curriculum different from that of the country the school is located in. The most common international schools in India represent Education in the United Kingdom or Education in the United States. The other category includes schools that adopts adopt an international curriculum such as that of the International Baccalaureate -a non-profit educational organization based in Geneva, Switzerland not associated with any particular country and free of national political educational agendas - or Cambridge International Examinations.

Like international schools in the other countries, the international schools in India are also characterized by Transferability of the student's education across international schools, Multinational and multilingual student body, An international curriculum, International accreditation like that of CIS, IBO, North Eastern ASC etc, A transient and multinational teacher population, Non-selective student enrollment, and Usually English or bilingual as the language of instruction etc.

International schools in India chiefly cater to students who are not nationals of the host country, such as the children of the staff members of international businesses organizations, world organizations, foreign embassies, missions, or missionary programs.  However many local students attend these International Schools to obtain qualifications that can help them get employment or higher education in foreign country with ease. Globalization has necessitated this for the aspiring candidates. International Schooling allows children to become global citizens by providing a rigorous and comprehensive education with full immersion into multiple languages and cultures.
