The British School

Dr Jose P Rizal Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, 110021 India

Founded by a group of area British parents in cooperation with the British High Commissioner, the school continues to base its curriculum on England's national program. While British and Indian pupils constitute over half of the student body, boys and girls enroll from more than 50 nations. The modified international program, which enables the school's transient population to move easily from one school to another, emphasizes college preparation and stresses the visual and performing arts. Instruction in grades PS-8 mirrors that found in England, with environmental studies and computer complementing traditional course work. The foreign language department features a choice between French and Hindi in grades 4 and 5; in grades 6-8, German is added as a third language option, and children take two of the three. Boys and girls in grades 9 and 10 prepare for either the GCSE or the IGCSE, typically enrolling in nine subjects during each of these years. In grades 11 and 12, students pursue the IB Diploma. The British School accommodates boys and girls with moderate learning differences at all grade levels. Students who are not native English speakers may also enroll, and ESL programming enables these pupils to engage in the regular curriculum.
