Pratham International School is a leading International School in Whitefield, Bangalore. Our school offers the globally accepted curriculum ‘ICSE ‘and ‘A’ level qualifications from Nursery to Class 10.

Knowledge is the most valuable skill a human can acquire. Thus, there should be continuity in the process of gaining knowledge. We at Pratham, foster and nourish the child’s growth which helps to become a better citizen, ultimately contributing towards building the nation.

We also believe in letting actions speak louder than words. We recognize that choice of selecting which school to join is one of the most important, and challenging decisions you will take as a parent.

The world around us is changing rapidly, and we need New Ways of Learning for a New World. In spite of rampant spread of Coronavirus from the last 2 years, the spirit of Prathamites remain resolute and strong. From the moment a child enters the school gate, he starts realizing who he is and where his potential lies. During the pandemic also, our teams in school have put up a lot of efforts in ensuring the required academic delivery of the prescribed syllabus goes on unhindered.

Our belief is that we are all born with inherent talents; that we each one of us have our unique dreams, learning preferences, strengths and development needs. The purpose of life and education therefore is to enable every child to find his/her passion and fulfil the potential to be the best.

At Pratham, we believe that the objective of education is not just to pass through, the curriculum to the learners, but also to empower and transform our students positively.

Join Pratham and be a part of our endeavor in transformation of lives.
