Overview

Bangalore International School, or American Community School as it was once called, was started in 1969. In the 60s and the 70s, although there were hundreds of American and Canadian families living in the city, there were no local schooling options that offered a North American curriculum and instruction style. The only available choice would have been boarding school. And luckily for us, this idea did not appeal to Eloise R. Bennett and her family, the founders of BIS. On contract through the University of Tennessee for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bennett family moved to Bangalore for two years between 1969 and 1971. Finding no suitable schooling options, they decided to open their own, and so the American Community School was born, in a garage on Millers Road.

Management:
Since its inception BIS has remained a wholly parent owned school. Our Board of Trustees is comprised of five parents of students currently enrolled in the school and it is responsible for the governance of the school.

Students also learn swimming and tennis. The tuck shop is one of the favourite hangouts of the students.

Super School. My daughters are really happy with the school. They are now in High School following the IB curriculum and are extremely involved in the school life. Sports, Music, Drama, Debate Club and, of course, academics!
