School Summary

450 students, 3-18 yrs.

Established in 1854, Woodstock School is a Christian, international, residential school for boys and girls from grades K-12. It offers a college preparatory programme leading to an American high school diploma, the Advanced Placement examinations, and Cambridge University IGCSE examinations. An extensive performing arts department, modern computer and video labs, an intensive ESL program for grades 5-8 and challenging community service and outdoor education opportunities autment the academic program. The priority at Woodstock School is to produce academically prepared students who possess an understanding of the beliefs and values of the Christian faith and an appreciation of cultural differences and global diversity.

Woodstock School's 260-acre campus is located in a protected forest on the outskirts of Mussoorie, a historic hill station in the first range of the Himalayas. Mussoorie is 285 kilometres (178 miles) north of Delhi and is 32 km (23 miles) above Dehra Dunn which is accessible by train, bus or taxi. From the school campus there are magnificent views of the Doon Valley to the south and of the snow covered Himalayan range to the north.

Woodstock is India's oldest international school and the first US-accredited school in Asia. Established in 1854, Woodstock has recently celebrated the 150th anniversary of its foundation and is now preparing for the 50th anniversary of Middle States accreditation in 2009.

Woodstock is a co-educational boarding school for 500 students from pre-K - 12, from over 20 countries. The school is intentionally diverse, in terms of its student and staff and in its programmes, ethos and values. With a strong non-denominational Christian heritage, Woodstock offers an inclusive, values-based, educational experience for students from different countries, cultures, religions and belief-systems. The school seeks specifically to support the education of children from families in Christian and public service through a substantial student grants programme.

The international, college-preparatory curriculum is based on Cambridge International Examinations (UK) and College Board 'Advanced Placement' (US) programmes. As well as offering sixteen 'core' subjects, including four sciences, to AP examination level, additional curricular options include Studio Art, journalism, Yearbook, jazz improvisation, Indian and US literature, and Hindi. There is a broad range of distinctive music, outdoor education, sport, and other extra-curricular activities, including orchestra, bands and Indian music. High School students may participate in exchanges with schools in US and Australia. Woodstock's ESL department provides a three-week Summer School and 'pull-out' and in-class support, and there is a Learning Assistance programme for students with mild learning difficulties. Students are prepared for higher education in USA, Canada, UK, India, Australia, Korea and Japan, amongst other university destinations. In addition to MSA accreditation, Woodstock is recognized by the Association of Indian Universities and offers an Indian Mark-Sheet.

Woodstock School has an outstanding location on nearly 300 acres of protected forest at 7,000 feet on the south-facing slopes of the Himalayan foothills 300 Km north of Delhi and accessible by air, rail or car. Students are accommodated in separate-sex, age-based residences, with between two and four students per room and an average ratio of fifteen students to each residence staff member. The academic programme is supported by two excellent libraries and an extensive computer network, and by specialist accommodation for science, IT, music, art and outdoor education.
