Our History

Bloomingdale International School was founded in 2006 as Bloomingdale playschool. With the growing need for alternative education practices in the city, Bloomingdale then took up the mighty responsibility to make children today fall in love with learning and equip them to be life-long learners with the foundation of the international curriculum and global mindset – thus giving rise to Bloomingdale International School in 2016.

Principal’s message

BIS was started as a dream – a dream envisioned by our Founder Members. BIS is a small school with a large vision. Education at BIS goes beyond the letters in the page of a textbook, and students emerge as confident young individuals, ready to face the challenges of the 21st century. We inspire our students to question and learn by doing, we give them the skills, courage, optimism and integrity to pursue their own dreams. In doing so, our students develop into confident, creative and caring adults who pursue interesting and challenging careers.

Learning takes many forms at BIS. Each student achieves his or her own potential in the classroom, art room, sports field or on the stage. Being a small school, there are several opportunities for each individual to explore and hone their unique talents. We encourage all our students to persevere, participate and take responsibility for their own development. Through the years at BIS our students are happy to come to school, as each day is an adventure, with something new and exciting to engage them.

BIS believes there is no contradiction between learning and fun, joy and the pursuit of excellence, the global and the local, and between respecting tradition and embracing change.

Chairman's Message

It has been an exciting and fulfilling journey to be able to steer the quality of life in Vijayawada by educating generations here. It is disturbing to know of families parting with their little ones and sending them to Boarding Schools to provide International standard education.

Inquiry Learning: Learning Through Discovery

Broad and Balanced

An IB education represents a balanced approach, offering students access to a broad range of content that spans academic subjects.

In the PYP, learning aims to transcend boundaries between subject areas. As students develop in the MYP and DP, they engage subject-specific knowledge and skills with increasing sophistication.


Conceptual learning focuses on broad and powerful organizing ideas that are relevant within and across subject areas. It reaches beyond national and cultural boundaries. It helps integrate learning, add coherence to the curriculum, deepen disciplinary understanding, builds the capacity to engage with complex ideas, and allows transfer of learning to new contexts. PYP and MYP students learn the key concepts, and students in the DP further develop their conceptual understanding.


IB curriculum frameworks value concurrency of learning. Students encounter many subjects simultaneously throughout their programmes of study; they learn to draw connections and pursue rich understandings about the interrelationship of knowledge and experience across many fields. Course aims and programme requirements offer authentic opportunities to learn about the world in ways that reach beyond the scope of individual subjects.
