Woodstock is the oldest international boarding school in Asia, and is regularly ranked as number one* in India in peer and parent surveys (*Education World 2008, 2009, 2011).
For almost 160 years we have offered a first-class, college-preparatory education to students from around the world. Today, more than 500 students and 150 staff live and work together on our 250-acre campus high in the first range of the Himalayas.
Woodstock School was founded by Christian people in 1854, and for the majority of its history primarily served the needs of missions and families engaged in social service in India. This heritage continues today in the school's commitment to values of excellence, personal responsibility and service, and in our special calling to continue to educate the children of families in Christian or public service — a purpose to which we devote substantial student financial aid.
Our values are common to many other educational institutions: the development of moral character, self-esteem and a sense of responsibility; the fulfilment of academic and leadership potential; critical, analytical and independent thinking; well-rounded, balanced and healthy living; appreciation for what is true, good and beautiful in one's own and other cultures. We believe that Woodstock provides a physical, social and spiritual environment in which these values can be more than just words, but can become part of the lives of our students.
