The School


Originating in the Tibetan Plateau, within the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, River Indus runs through the Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir. It flows towards Gilgit and Baltistan, and then south, along with the entire length of Pakistan. Eventually, it merges into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh, spanning a distance of 3,180 kilometres. Thereupon, it sustains life, and the economies of the regions it flows through.

India derives its name from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, the ancient name for River Indus.

Travelling ahead in time, in January 2002, on the banks of River Indus at Leh, Lt. General Arjun Ray, PVSM, VSM (Retd.), a visionary par excellence, drafted the vision of a boarding school; a vision as encompassing and nurturing as River Indus itself. And with his foresight and conviction of thought (based on the universalism of human values), the Indus International School, Hyderabad was established in September 2008. And currently, it is counted among the top boarding cum day schools in India.

The Indus International School Hyderabad began its first academic year in 2008, with 135 students. Based on a conscious decision to ensure quality learning, the School graduated from Grade 9 to Grade 12 in just three years. Today, we have 370 students from 10 different countries of whom 50% reside on campus.
