The High School section at BIS is academically driven. There is a constant effort to uphold, inculcate, and nurture values and principles that foster holistic development in our students.
High school spans Grades 9 to 12. In Grades 9 and 10, we offer the Cambridge IGCSE curriculum. In Grade 11 and 12, students can choose between Cambridge-A Levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and International Baccalaureate (IB) offer rigorous academic programs, benchmarked to world standards.
Besides compulsory subjects, BIS offers an interesting range of contemporary academic subjects, designed to capture a student's curiosity, and develop a lifelong love of learning. BIS is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). This enables BIS to offer its own High School Diploma. Students completing course requirements by the end of Grade 12 are awarded the BIS Diploma which is recognised by the Association of Indian Universities(AIU) and Universities abroad.
In keeping up with the demands for 21st century skills, our instructional practices are designed to provide students with a framework for critical analysis, research skills, collaboration skills and presentation skills. These developmentally appropriate educational practices have been recognized to meet students' needs in all the areas of development - physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
High school is a veritable bee hive of opportunities. Students have ample opportunities to engage in sports and extracurricular activities. In keeping with the true spirit of global citizenship, a few student groups have launched CAS clubs. These groups are engaged in fostering social consciousness and global awareness.
Equipped with the right temperament and skills, our students have excelled in life after school. They have had the honour of joining some of the best universities in the world.

Applying to a University
At BIS, we work with the school's Mission to support the academic achievements of all students as they prepare for the ever-changing world of the 21st century. Our primary goal is to enable all students to achieve success within the school and beyond.
Applying to a university can be a confusing process and the search for the right institution can be long and time-consuming. Putting in this effort can help to ensure that the students get into a well-reputed university, capable of providing them with a good education.
To help students with this, BIS provides academic counseling. The goal of academic counseling is to ensure that our students have access to relevant, practical and timely information and that, ultimately, each one of our students move on to higher educational institutions that match with their individual talents and personal interests.
We provide college counseling for students from Grades 9 to 12. The students in Grades 11 and 12 begin to look at their high school accomplishments and think about universities or colleges that are a 'good fit' for them as they continue their academic career.
Students are provided advice on academic and career opportunities which helps with identifying educational and career options, appropriate for them. Essentially, we set up an action plan for the student to explore career options and related majors.
Generally, students start the college search and application process when they are in the second semester of Grade 11, as vital academic information can be incorporated into the process at this stage (first semester grades, PSAT scores, past academic performance and SAT). BIS is buzzing with university visits and university fairs throughout the year. Close to 100 universities from US, UK, Canada, Europe, Japan, Singapore, Australia , Poland and India visit our campus each year. Our students not only receive University placements from top institutes of the world, but many also get unconditional offers with scholarships from reputed and niche universities in USA, Europe and Canada.
Apart from this, few students from Grade 10 and 11 attend summer college prep courses in Universities like Harvard University, Imperial college, NYU Film Academy, Rose Hulman University, Berkeley College of Music etc.
