THE PHILOSOPHY AND VISION:

Oakridge, a centre for excellence in education, believes that every child has a treasure within. The school kindles in children intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual development. It aims to produce successful, responsible, creative, global citizens striving for excellence and committed to nature and progress of society. It envisions a stimulating learning environment by providing highly motivated facilitators, innovative educational methods and quality infrastructure that will help to discover, nurture and bring to fruition the treasure within.

VISIONARY TEAM:

Oakridge International School is promoted by the Visakhapatnam-based Vikas Educational Institutions Limited (VEIL), which is popularly known as the VIKAS Group. Starting with the establishment of a Junior College in 1993 at Visakhapatnam, the Vikas Group ventured ahead to start a junior college in Tirupati also.

All through Vikas educational institutions achieved high ranks in Intermediate Examinations. Even in Entrance examinations like EAMCET, IIT, IIIT, JIPMER, BITS Pilani, Roorkee Vikas students emerged a star performers, achieved high scores and top ranks. Vikas is now a household name in Andhra Pradesh that is synonymous to quality Intermediate education. Much of the credit of Vikas' achievements goes to its founders Mr T. Naga Prasad, Chairman and Mr Y. V. Rajasekhar Babu, Managing Director.

It dawned on the Vikas Group founders as early on as in 1999 that education offered in Andhra Pradesh should be in sync with the growing demands of the 21st century. With Hyderabad developing as an international hub for information technology (IT) and information technology enabled services (ITES) and large numbers of IT personnel, engineers and other professionals coming to the city from different parts of India and the world, there was the dire need for schools based on international educational standards.

If the founders had the vision to establish and nurture an International School in Hyderabad, it was Mr.Shomie Das , Director (Education) and Mr.Janajit Ray, founding Head of Oakridge International School who realized the mission and gave to Andhra Pradesh its first International Baccalaureate World School. They together streamlined the academic processes to make Oakridge International a truly global institution.
