Oxford International School (OIS) is an International English medium co-education school following the academic programme of the University of Cambridge, UK up to GCE O and A Level. It is one of the earliest English medium schools in Bangladesh. The Oxford International School was founded in 1987.

The main campus is at Dhanmondi R/A in Dhaka District. The Junior Dhanmondi Campus is in the same suburb, and there are also the Banasree Project Campus, the Gulshan Campus, and the Uttara Campus.[1]

History[edit]

Oxford International School was founded in 1987 by the President of the school, Md. Shakawat Hossain. It followed the curriculum of the University of London O Levels (Edexcel) and then shifted to the University of Cambridge (Cambridge International Examination) in 2003. One of the Principals of OIS was Ian Burges, an ex-professor of the University of Cambridge UK. Beginning humbly with a single campus and a limited staff, OIS has moved into a modern spacious building. The Junior Section ( Playgroup to KG ) is located close by. It is one of the pioneers in GCE A Levels under CIE in Bangladesh. OIS is an attached center of CIE. Though the exams are controlled by The British Council, the students sit for their exams in the school auditorium, Dr. Kudrat-I-Khuda Auditorium.

Oxford International school offers the complete Cambridge curriculum of the Cambridge Primary Programme, Cambridge Lower Secondary, GCE O Levels and GCE A Levels.
