Teaching in India at DSB International School

Students at the school come mainly from the consular and expatriate community in South Mumbai and consequently, student turnover is quite high, about 30% per year. About 30% of the students in the school are host nationals.

Classes are small, ranging from 5 to 16 students. This means that the staff gets to know the students very well. Consequently planning and teaching can be more manageably personalized and differentiated to meet the needs of individuals and small groups. Classes are mixed-ability and there is one class per year group.

The curriculum from 3-16 years, in the international section, is broadly based on the English National Curriculum, including IGCSEs accredited by Cambridge International Education Examination Board. The International Baccalaureate Diploma is offered for 16+ years. The German Section offers a German curriculum in close cooperation with the International Section.

The teaching of the German language and German culture is an important feature of the school and is supported by the German Government. The international section now makes up over 95% of the school population.
