MYP candidate school: Since September 2015

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)

OIS began implementing the MYP during the 2015-16 academic year in Grade 6. We will add one grade level each subsequent academic year until it is fully implemented through Grade 10 according to the below timeline.
