Oberoi International School (OIS) is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. OIS is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy— a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Oberoi International School believes is important for its students.
(*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org)
