Legacy Of Oakridge

  • 29 November 2021

With two decades of presence, Oakridge International School has garnered a strong repertoire for the privilege of being the first IB school in Telangana and to the second largest IB school in the country today.

The prestigious Oakridge international school was started with a mission to build a community of leaders, over a foundation of shared beliefs, values and ethos. Mr. Shomie Das is the man who saw tomorrow with Oakridge International School as his brain child. The visionary guidance and effective strategies of Mr. Shomie Das has been the source of strength, inspiration and motivation for every milestone achieved. We share his vision of a smarter, more intelligent generation of individuals who develop their potential to the fullest; who value the resources of our planet; who empathize with other human beings and who are as adept at using cutting-edge technology while also interacting with people from other cultures.

Established by a group of visionaries in 2001, the school started on 11th June 2001 in rented premises in Jubilee Hills. Today it has its branches Vishakhapatnam, Bengaluru, and Mohali besides the two branches located in Hyderabad. The school was managed by People Combine, an education management and consulting company set up two decades ago by two ISB alumnus Naga Prasad Tummala and Y V Rajasekhar.

Oakridge became part of Nord Anglia Education group in Feb 2019. NAE has 76 schools in 31 countries and has 68,000 students worldwide, and is a truly global community that spans both continents and cultures.

Outstanding teachers make outstanding schools, which is why our teachers are the best in the world. Our teachers never stop learning — through our world-class professional development programme, including opportunities with MIT, King’s College London and Juilliard. Oakridge has been widely recognized for its faculty, amenities, and more, making it one of the top 5 international schools today.

Oakridge is dedicated to nurturing responsive and motivated students through a dynamic and success oriented education program. There is an emotion of pride and accomplishment amongst all of us on reaching the milestone of completing 20 years. We look at a legacy of talented and successful alumni and a school that continues to grow and evolve, always prepared and updated to send out Oakridgers who are compassionate, creative and committed to the betterment of the world they live in.
