Expat families will find that there are plenty of international schools in Bengaluru to choose from. Schools offering the Cambridge curriculum, including the IGCSE and A-levels, are a popular choice, as are International Baccalaureate schools. Many international schools in Bengaluru offer a combination of both of these curricula.

International schools in Bengaluru are diverse and are usually attended by students of dozens of different nationalities. For the expat child, being around other expat children can ease the adjustment period. In addition, expat children often find comfort in continuing with a familiar curriculum, and expat teens will be well prepared for university applications thanks to the globally recognised qualifications granted by international schools. Expat children will still get to socialise with locals, as wealthy Indian families often prefer to send their children to private international schools. 

There generally isn't a set period during the year for applying to international schools in Bengaluru. Most schools accept applications year round, assuming there is space. To ensure a spot in their desired school, expats should start the process of application well in advance.

Below is a list of some of the city's most prominent international schools.
