CHIREC International is a K-12 school located in Hyderabad, India. The school was founded in 1989 by Mrs. Ratna D. Reddy.[1] There are three campuses. The main campus is located in Kondapur, pre-primary campus in Jubilee Hills and a third in Gachibowli with pre-primary - Classes 1 to 4. The school offers three curricula: International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).[2]


The first Nursery school in 1989

In April 1989, CHIREC began as a summer camp that offered training in fine arts, performing arts, computers, indoor and outdoor sports. In June, CHIREC evolved into a school for Nursery, PPI & PPII students. As the number of students wishing to attend CHIREC increased beyond the capacity of its 1993 Begumpet and Jubilee Hills campuses, in 1996, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated CHIREC’s eco-friendly 6-acre Integrated Campus at Kondapur.
