Originating in the Tibetan Plateau, in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, River Indus runs through the Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir. It flows towards Gilgit and Baltistan, and then south, along the entire length of Pakistan. Eventually, it merges into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh, spanning a distance of 3,180 kilometres. The Indus sustains life and the economies of the regions it flows through. India derives its name from the Sanskrit word 'Sindhu', the ancient name for River Indus.
Travelling ahead in time, in January 2002, on the banks of River Indus at Leh, Lt. General Arjun Ray, PVSM, VSM (Retd.), a visionary par excellence drafted the Vision of a school, a Vision encompassing and nurturing as the River Indus itself. And out of his foresight and conviction of thought, based on universalism of human values, was established the Indus International School Pune, on 14th July, 2003.
The Indus International School Pune began its first academic year in August, 2008, with 52 students. Based on a conscious decision to ensure quality learning, the School graduated from Grade 9 to Grade 12 over a span of three years. Today, the school has over 825 students from 27 countries, with 30 percent of the students living on campus.
