INTRODUCTION

Oakridge International School was founded in the year 2000 in Hyderabad, the capital of the State of Andhra Pradesh, India. Oakridge is part of the Vikas Group, Vizag, whose academic institutions rank among India's most advanced and progressive.

CURRICULUM

As an international school catering to students in the Indian context, Oakridge is primarily affiliated to the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi. We are also authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and have attained the status of an IB World School since October 2004. We will be launching the IB Diploma Programme in April 2006.

STAFF

Our teachers are handpicked from some of the finest educational institutions across INDIA and abroad.

Apart from educational qualifications and work experience, teachers are selected based on their approach to their work and their openness to using innovative teaching methods. They are constantly trained in the PYP methods.

FACILITIES

The School provides a kaleidoscope of features and amenities, some of which are Multi-facility air-conditioned Classrooms with Computers, Internet connection, Intranet and facilities for using LCD projector, etc. Laboratories such as the Infotech Centre; the Language labs; Labs for Physics, Chemistry and Life Sciences; as also an Environment Sciences lab, Swimming Pool, Music and Art Rooms, Infirmary, Games Field and 200 mt. Athletics Track, Volleyball. Basketball. Tennis Courts, Clinical Psychology Unit, Air conditioned buses with on-board security personnel and wireless equipment, Dining Hall, Learning Resource Centre and Toy Library.

SCHOOL YEAR AND SCHOOL DAY

The school calendar year is from June to April. However, we have the academic session for classes VII, VIII, IX and X beginning in mid-March and ending in mid-February of the next year.

Oakridge is a long day school (8:20 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday) without any residential facility.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Oakridge, in every possible way, focuses more on learning rather than teaching . So, the emphasis at Oakridge is on developing amongst the students all the skills, aptitudes and attitudes required for the creative construction of their own knowledge through questioning, reading, exploring, dreaming, formulating and testing hypothesis as opposed to the general practice in schools of merely programming into the child a certain body of information. The well-trained and committed staff, the innovative teaching methods adopted and the excellent infrastructure effectively facilitate this very special focus of the institution.
