Facilities at the International School of Hyderabad
The International School of Hyderabad (ISH) has now moved all its facilities from the premises of the ICRISAT Social Club in Banjara Hills to the main ICRISAT campus in North-Western direction from the city at the end of the hi-tech corridor on the Bombay highway. The main ICRISAT campus where the school is now located is next to the village of Patancheru.
These new facilities provide ISH with a double-set of security. The whole of ICRISAT is secured by perimeter walls. The school campus has a second set of perimeter walls around it.
Safety & security are top priorities of the school. The main ICRISAT campus where ISH is located has its own fire station and its own medical unit with a full-time physician. In addition to this medical unit, ISH employs a full-time nurse in its own facilities.
Construction on the new ISH building is nearly complete, with the elementary and secondary students settled into their respective buildings (Reception still meets in the pre-existing ICRISAT building). The new buildings were designed to foster communication and promote a harmonious relationship with nature. More on the philosophy of the architecture may be found by clicking here.
Construction has recently completed on a Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH). The MPH will serve as an indoor athletic hall, an auditorium and currently houses the music classroom with two separate practice rooms.
In 2009, the school built a canteen in the style of a pavilion. That canteen is located between the Secondary School and the site of the new Elementary School.
In 2010, work started on a track field facility with running track and other practice areas.
The main ICRISAT campus stretches for 1,500 hectars/3,600 acres. Its location on the ICRISAT campus provides students with extraordinary access to nature. The ICRISAT campus includes forests and lakes.
Its location on the ICRISAT campus also provides students with a most unusual learning environment, with science labs, a museum, a medieval fort, and a weather station all on the ICRISAT campus. On the ICRISAT campus, ISH students enjoy the use of a large outdoor swimming pool, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, outdoor tennis courts, and a number of sports fields. There is also a golf driving range and a fitness centre.
