Bangalore International School
Bangalore International School, or American Community School as it was once called, was started in 1969. In the 60s and the 70s, although there were hundreds of American and Canadian families living in the city, there were no local schooling options that offered a North American curriculum and instruction style. Finding no suitable schooling options, they decided to open their own, and so the American Community School was born, in a garage on Millers Road.
