Introduction to Indian Schools Oman
The Indian Schools in Oman have a history of more than forty years; there are more than 46,000 students hailing from different parts of India, studying in 20 Indian Schools across the Sultanate. The Schools, affiliated to CBSE, are governed by the Board of Directors under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Education of the Sultanate of Oman.
Indian Schools in Oman are a consortium of schools founded with the singular aim of providing access to quality education to the students of the Indian community residing within the Sultanate. The primary objective of Board of Directors is to ensure that no Indian expatriate child in the Sultanate of Oman should be denied the opportunity of qualitative primary and secondary education at par with the national standards in India.
Underlining our diversity, the schools function and operate as non-political, secular and self-sustaining institutions.
The Board of Directors, in its long-term plan - Vision 2020, envisages holistic education for the students of Indian Schools.
Holistic Education is based on the principle that each child be nurtured and educated though both academic and non-academic means, with focus on the overall development of the child.
In order to achieve this aspiring mission, the Board emphasizes academic excellence as well as the all-round development of students by encouraging participation in sports, cultural activities, and socially responsible activities that shall transform students into educated, confident and productive individuals.
