Welcome to Stonehill

Welcome to a learning community dedicated to the development of knowledgeable, caring, confident and responsible global citizens. We are a co-educational, secular, non-selective day and boarding school located in the north of Bangalore close to the international airport.

Our impressive, state-of-the-art, purpose-built campus covers 34 acres and includes extensive sports fields and facilities, swimming pools, boarding houses, libraries, and a cafeteria. We serve the internationally-minded, local and expatriate population of Bangalore with a school population of almost 500 students between the ages of 3 and 18. Our students and teachers come from India as well as over 35 different countries spanning the globe.

As a testament to its quality and commitment to a truly international education for all students, Stonehill has received authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization to provide three IB programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). Additionally, Stonehill is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). We are a member of the Australian Boarding Schools Association (ABSA) and we offer both day and boarding programmes, including full-time, weekly, and flexi-boarding.

We believe that students learn best when they are supported, engaged, empowered, challenged, happy and respected as individuals. We encourage students to take an active part in an inquiry-based learning process, to set goals, to be independent learners and self-evaluate their progress. Our talented and experienced team of teachers are passionate about creating inclusive and engaging learning environments that cater to the needs of all students.

Our families describe Stonehill as a caring, warm and welcoming community where every child is valued, respected and provided with the opportunity to thrive. I invite you to come and discover for yourself the rich and exciting educational opportunities we provide for all learners. We are proud of our school and are always happy to welcome visitors.

With best regards,
