The School


Originating in the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, the river Indus runs through the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, towards Gilgit and Baltistan and then flows in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan, to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh, spanning a length of 3,180 kilometers. The Indus River sustains life and 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 school, a Vision encompassing and nurturing as the River Indus; and out of his foresight and conviction of thought, based on universalism of human values, was established the Indus International School Pune, on 14th July, 2003.

The Indus International School Pune began its first academic year in August, 2008, with 52 students. Based on a conscious decision to ensure quality learning, the School graduated from Grade 9 to Grade 12 over a span of three years. Today, the school has over 825 students from 27 countries, with 30 percent of the students living on campus.
