Reviews:

Indus International is a disappointment all the way. The fantastic infrastructure is very attractive.so is the food served in the cafeteria. but that is about it. Teaching is substandard most times reflecting poor teaching skills and lack of organization. In spite of promises to use global methods, the middle school program uses primarily traditional methods. many teachers are ill equipped to deal with international students. Traditional disciplinary methods of threats and punishments are used often. But what really gets to you is the lack of concern and response from the management . Concerns taken up by parents are ignored or treated with hostility. Sometimes the issues are just denied. makes you question the integrity of the school.

Excellent school in terms of bringing out the leadership qualities in the children. The teachers are well educated and friendly and the whole atmosphere in the school is that of friendliness and freedom. My children love the school and do not want to miss it any day. The primary years program of IB is excellent and the middle years program also prepares the children for future exams. Lot of guidance starting from grade 8 to prepare the students to get admission in their choice of college. Indus is following the IB board very seriously and I am very happy about it. ;)

Dear All,
Having attending Indus for 2 years and suffered from their inhumane treatment, i feel it is important to enlighten other individuals who may be considering Indus as a school for their children. I focus mostly on the IB department and the management of the school.

First and foremost, every student joining Indus should know that, the students are viewed not as children or students at all, but just as sources of money.
All right, one could then say that even if this is so, if we’re getting our money’s worth in the education and facilities, it matters little. Well, the money does not seem to provide for the supposed "world Class" facilities the school boasts of. The food is mediocre and for the BOARDERS, the food is even worse and highly repetitive.
In fact, in 2012, the school fees increased and this increase in school fees came alongside a decrease in food quality and number of items. Odd isn’t it?

The school is not platform for creativity to flourish. In fact, liberty is suppressed at this school.

Moving on, one questions the school policy on bullying, alcoholism, smoking and drug consumption. The school conducts regular drug tests for students. it is a urine test for a which a report is generated. It has been observed that the school authorities used the drug test as a means to expel and target students they do not like. The school ignores the Legal International Standards for substance content in the body and without allowing the reports to be seen at all, expels students.

Furthermore, Individuals who are actually guilty of substance abuse, bullying or alcoholism face an even weirder sentence. Rather than protect the other students from the influence of such individuals, they don’t expel these students but bring give them "temporary suspensions" and one may even see them back in school after a few weeks, as has been observed

The Management of the school needs to be questioned as well. Mind you, not the teachers but the staff such as the Vice principal and Principal. The vice principal for 2011-12, was Mr.Omkar Joshi. He is a rude, shameless and a highly unintelligent individual who appears absolutely uneducated and now he’s been made principal of Indus Hyderabad. I wonder what the basis for promotion is?

The Principal, i must say has the biggest ego I’ve ever encountered. All she wants ever one in the school to do is respect her and say "All is well". She asks for people to respect her, not earn respect through her actions. Like the vice principal she is extremely rude and one really has to think about what qualifies her to be a principal. She cannot take any feedback or criticism and plays favourites.

Elaborating upon Indus viewing kids as nothing but money bags, the school allows anyone and everyone into the school, just as long as they can pay. Indus is not an institution of education but a business. My friend suffered an asthmatic attack while on campus. He is a boarder. The school responded and he was hospitalised. After receiving treatment, he returned to school to join the boarding. But the school said no. They told him to leave the boarding and take up his own place in Bangalore or leave the school. Despite the doctor’s approval, the school shut their doors to a boy who just came out of hospital whose family lived in Hyderabad. He had nowhere to live. This is what Indus said: " We cannot be responsible for this student’s health any longer." If they cannot handle a common asthma case, is the school safe for anyone? My friend was a CORPORATE LIABILITY. The Principal even went as far as telling his parents to "be better parents and come to Bangalore, leaving all else behind". Also, the school never issued anything in writing, only by mouth or "text" message. Scared of legal ramifications are they?

Another friend of mine was suspended from school for asking the principal what he did wrong when she walked into to class and started screaming at him.

My friends on the school newsletter couldn’t publish anything that didn’t scream "INDUS IS THE BEST".

One of the most important things is that INDUS NO LONGER HAS CAROLINE LINGER.
She is one of the best college councilors in the country. She was sacked by the school unjustly and was replaced by an English professor, not a Councillor but AN ENGLISH PROFESSOR. I’m terribly worried for the future Indus batches.

Furthermore, if you were considering your son to join the school for the teachers, i’m very sorry to tell you that the good ones that brought the school its reputation have almost all gone.

beware parents, the school may look nice with its buildings but please think about your child’s future before you take a step inside Indus.

My sister graduated from the IB Diploma Program at Indus International School. The career counseling was great with her career counselor even calling out of office hours to share feedback. Kudos to the teachers, for everything – the interest they have taken in clearing doubts and the motivational people talks.

My children have been attending Indus from the last 2 years and till date it has been a great experience. Outstanding teachers is one of the reasons for the excellent standards of education in this school. One of the reasons why teachers meet international standards is the in-house training which is given to them at Indus Training and Research Institute. Teachers also have the option of opting for post graduate programs which are awarded by ITARI in collaboration with Birmingham University. This emphasis on training has brought about a vast improvement in quality of teaching and education magt. ITARI is an excellent effort made by Indus.

word of advice from a parent to new parents considering indus international bangalore;
HIGHLY ARROGANT atmosphere prevails at campus with old traditional ways to harass students and parents who raise concerns.Principal Mrs Sarojini Rao gives a passionate ear but presumably she doesnt have a say in administration.The vice principal selina krishnan and her coterie run the show ,Of late some very good teachers have left school ,and don't be befooled by the so claimed 1st rank in international school category :there is nothing near to international standards at Indus. Repetitive menu of food in the mess and PATHETIC facilities in the boarding add to the woes of resident boarders.... can write more on the sorry state of affairs at Indus my advice is DONT EVER DREAM OF SENDING YOUR WARD TO INDUS OR YOU WILL REPENT LIKE ME
