Woodstock School – Mussoorie

Woodstock School in the Himalayas is one of the most highly esteemed Christian international schools in South Asia. Mussoorie is 350 km north of Delhi in Uttarakhand. ‘The Queen of the Hills’, Mussoorie sits on a spur between the Ganges and Yamuna Rivers at around 2,000 meters above sea level. From the ridge above the school, the panorama stretches to snow-covered ranges whose peaks rise to more than 6,500 meters rimming India’s northern border with Tibet.

South from the school lies the Doon Valley, at 300 meters. On a clear day the view stretches beyond the Doon to the Shivalik range 50 km away, and even to the plains of North India.

In 1854, a company of British officers and two American missionaries was formed in Dehradun. Concerned for protestant education for girls, they solicited the help of a group of English women to help staff and manage what was to become Woodstock School.

In 1990, the Association of Indian Universities recognized the Woodstock Diploma as being equivalent to the Indian school leaving examination, thus allowing graduates to enter Indian Universities with greater ease.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, there existed a notable emphasis on environmental and community development and service on the part of the students. After the earthquake in October 1991, activity groups rendered assistance to the Budhkedar region (UP). This and other ongoing service projects still receive assistance from staff and students.

In recent years, Woodstock has placed a priority on its academic programming with renovations to classrooms and laboratories, the introduction of contemporary classes such as Environmental Sciences, an increase in the number of US Colleges Advanced placements examinations offered to and taken by seniors, and the 2003 requirement of all seniors to sit for the Cambridge University IGCSE examinations at Grade 10. During 1999, Woodstock completed its application for continuing accreditation with MSA under the ‘Accreditation For Growth’ protocol, for the K-12 programme.
