D Y Patil International School was founded in 1978 to provide an international education using the English language. Our school emphasises academic achievement in a caring, structured and purposeful environment. We connect students to the global community, encouraging each individual to reach their full potential and setting them on the pathway to an English medium university education.
Our school caters for ages 3-18, following the International Primary Curriculum and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education and A levels, overseen by the University of Cambridge International Examinations. French and Dutch are compulsory, although students entering in year 9 or 10 may elect not to take these. Accreditation by the Council of International Schools ensures that we meet rigorous governance, financial and educational standards.
The teaching staff is well-qualified and contains a balance of experience and youth. The average length of teaching experience is 10 years. The pupil population is international in character with some 12 countries represented although the largest group are Belgian (with Indian heritage). The school is housed in a purpose-built facility comprising 14 classrooms, library, science laboratory, computer room, theatre, gymnasium and playground.

Admission is based on previous school records and interview, where practical.
