International Teaching Predictions for 2012 #6: India

#6: International Schools in India

“We are seeing a number of interesting developments in India but most international schools receive fees that are so low that they cannot pay western teachers anything near what they are expecting. India is a booming economy but with a decent educational system and a good supply of home grown teachers, only the very top or most motivated international schools can hire you so there will be limited but interesting opportunities. Another space to watch as the year progresses.”

Agra, India

Currently (as of 8 May, 2012), on www.internationalschoolcommunity.com, we have 42 international schools listed in this region of the world.  That makes India rank #4 (out of 13) in terms of the regions of the world with the highest number of international schools listed on our website.  According to the article and to what we see happening in our community, there are many new international schools being founded each year in both regions.  For example out of the 165 international schools listed in SE Asia, 72 of them are less than 15 years old; that is a little bit less than half. The expat communities there seem to be growing and thus the need for more international schools is also growing, especially in areas like Thailand and Indonesia.

Out of the 177 countries that we have listed on our website, the top six countries with the highest number of international schools listed on International School Community are the following:
1. China (112 schools listed)
2. United Arab Emirates (43 schools listed)
3. India (42 schools listed)
4. Thailand (39 schools listed)
5. United States (37 schools listed)
6. Japan (35 schools listed)

Out of the 15 cities that we have listed for the country of India, the top three cities with the highest number of international schools listed on International School Community are the following:
1. Mumbai (10 schools listed)
2. Bangalore (6 schools listed)
3. Calcutta (4 schools listed)

Some more facts about these international schools in India listed on our website:
• 5 teach the American Curriculum, 20 teach the U.K. curriculum and 1 teach the IPC curriculum.
• 27 are less than 15 years old, 9 are between 16 and 50 years old and 6 are more than 51 years old.
• 27 are For-profit schools and 15 are Non-profit schools.
