Thirty-six students across Indian schools group Oakridge International School achieved over 90 per cent in their Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examinations.
OIS, which joined Nord Anglia Education in February this year, said this year’s results beat last year’s performance. Over 209 Year 12 students from Oakridge’s Gachibowli, Bachupally and Visakhapatnam campuses took the board exams. Students are graded out of a total score of 500.
Two students from Oakridge Gachibowli, Tripti Singhania and Poorvi Mohan Kumar were the top scorers, achieving a 480/500 or 96 per cent. Both paid tribute to their outstanding teachers who enabled them to strike a balance between academic study and their extra-curricular pursuits.
“The homely environment with amazing teachers helped me to the platform where I stand now, making my school and family proud,” Tripti said.
“Oakridge International School provided me with the best high-school learning experience,” Poorvi Mohan said.
“The school aided us with quality study material and this boosted our self confidence in the subject.”
Biju Baby, Principal at Oakridge’s Visakhapatnam’s campus said he felt proud students were able to succeed without the pressure that comes with conventional schooling in India.
“It is noteworthy that our students could achieve this while they continued with their interests and passions,” Mr Baby said.
“There are many examples of outstanding achievements as well as individual personal bests worthy of our praise and encouragement,” Terry Creissen, Managing Director for Nord Anglia Education’s India schools said.
“Wherever they go, whatever they do, we know that these Oakridge students will be the ones who will lead and shape our world to bring a better tomorrow.”
NAE’s education director Andy Puttock said he was delighted by the outstanding results achieved by Oakridge schools, adding that the group’s examination results have begun on a strong and positive note.
“These are the first results of the examination season for Nord Anglia Education,” Mr Puttock said.
“We look forward to our other global results matching these excellent outcomes from our schools in India”.
