Heritage International Xperiential School

Focused on deeper, authentic and inter-disciplinary learning, our first school was set-up in 1999 as a not-for-profit private co-educational school. Our schools today are spread across 6 campuses with a community of over 7000 students and over 700 teachers. Our Gurugram campus in the National Capital Region of India has been ranked the number 1 day school in India for the last two years. Known for its progressive pedagogy and community bound curriculum our schools offer 3 curriculums (National Board, Cambridge and International Baccalaureate) but continue to attempt to be Board agnostic through its own organically developed curriculum that stretches the boundaries of prescribed national and international curriculums.

Housed in beautiful sprawling campuses, the Heritage Schools today are one of the most reputed learning communities for educators. At Heritage International Xperiential School, we look upon the spaces students learn in as a third teacher; spaces are dovetailed with the curriculum to maximise learning. Learning is supported by a domain that includes physical surroundings, furnishings, and play materials; the social environment which includes activities and social interactions; and the inner or spiritual environment of thoughts, intentions and imaginations held by the child.
