Head of School’s Message



Welcome to the International School of Hyderabad (ISH). Our website will give you a glimpse into the vibrant school life experienced by our students, parents and faculty . As a parent, I know first-hand how significant it is that you choose the right school placement for your child. School becomes your child’s home away from home, the center of his or her social world, and the environment where she or he learns to function independently.


Under the trusteeship of The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), our beautiful purpose-built campus is nestled within the 3,500 acres of the ICRISAT campus. Given this extraordinary environment and the wonderful climate of Hyderabad, much on-campus learning takes place beyond the classroom walls, allowing for a unique and enriching learning experience.

The challenges of the present pandemic led to adopting this year’s tagline, Working Together in Our Complex World. Though we started the year virtually for all students, we are optimistic that on-campus learning will safely resume before too long. In either case, the right school for your child needs to be one able to fulfil its mission whether the learning happens on campus or online. ISH’s record of success in both learning scenarios guarantee that your child will thrive no matter the mode of learning.

Our mission and guiding principles ensure that our students are Leading Their Own Learning. ISH faculty are experienced and highly skilled and they take pride in developing supportive, caring relationships as they guide each student’s personalized learning journey. High academic standards, innovative practices and a wide variety of co-curricular school activities ensure that learning at ISH is an engaging, meaningful and joyous experience.

Celebrating our 40th year, this warm and welcoming international community is a special place where students, parents, faculty and staff come together in a rich tapestry of cultures, nationalities and experiences. Lifelong friends and cherished memories are made here as we learn, work and play together. Come join us!
