Founded in 1854, Woodstock School is located in the first range of the Indian Himalaya at an average altitude of around 7,000 ft. (2,100m). The extensive campus lies within a protected forest area near the hill-station of Mussoorie.
Woodstock aims to develop responsible global citizens and leaders by providing a world-class international education, rooted in its Christian heritage. Our diverse student body includes many from families serving India and the world.
Woodstock School was founded by Christian people in 1854, and for the majority of its history primarily served the needs of missions and families engaged in social service in India. This heritage continues today in the school’s commitment to values of excellence, personal responsibility, and service, and in our special calling to continue to educate the children of families in Christian or public service – a purpose to which we devote substantial student financial aid.
