Expat families will find that international schools in Delhi are as diverse as the city itself. Many of Delhi's international schools are British, with schooling leading up to the IGCSEs and A-levels. Students of the city's American schools can take AP subjects and the SATs. The globally recognised International Baccalaureate is another frequent offering. Some schools teach a combination of different curricula.

One of the major advantages of international schools in Delhi is the assurance of high-quality education. Well-qualified teachers and excellent facilities can be expected from most schools. Student bodies tend to be noticeably multicultural, with dozens of nationalities attending any given school.

Most international schools in Delhi have rolling admissions and accept applications throughout the year. Places can be limited, though, so it's worth applying early to secure a spot.

Below is a list of some of the most prominent international schools in Delhi.
