Our dedicated team of educators is determined to inspire students by equipping them with the appropriate knowledge, skills, and mindset. In today’s dynamic educational landscape, we endeavour to fulfill our promise by implementing innovative teaching methodologies and pedagogies while creating additional opportunities for enhanced learning within the classroom.
We draw inspiration from a myriad of educational philosophies, including Waldorf, Montessori, Krishnamurthy, Sri Aurobindo, and Kurt Hahn, the founder of Atlantic College in Wales and a proponent of expeditionary learning. Interestingly, the origins of the IB programme can be traced back to Hahn’s work in outbound learning and his belief in the power of immersive learning with a real purpose, which enables learners to confront their true selves and solve real-world problems.
This philosophy has been the cornerstone of the IB programme, but the danger of standardization is that the original spirit can be lost. As the best international school in Gurgaon, our aim is to preserve and cultivate that spirit, ensuring that our students receive the kind of education that IB was originally intended to provide.
HIXS has consistently delivered excellence in education for over a decade and remains the leading international school in Gurgaon. Our comprehensive programme structure is designed to offer students an enriching educational experience, starting with the International Primary Programme (IB PYP with the Heritage Early Years Programme) from Nursery to Grade 4, the Lower Cambridge Programme in Grades 5 to 8, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Grades 9 and 10, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) in Grades 11 and 12.
Our curriculum is thoughtfully crafted to seamlessly integrate age-appropriate learning with our Mastery Strands, which complement the best internationally accredited curriculum boards, giving our students a distinctive edge. We are committed to fostering leadership qualities and a culture of advisory to nurture our students’ full potential throughout their school years. Our unwavering dedication is to equip our students with the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive in today’s world.

Our students’ exceptional performance in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) has earned us recognition as the top international school in Delhi NCR and one of the top three IB schools in India. According to the IB Schools League Tables recently published by Education Advisers Ltd., our average IBDP score of 39 far surpasses the world average of 32.
We are immensely proud to share that nearly half of our students – 48% – scored 40 and above, with an impressive 92% scoring above 32. This achievement is a testament to the high academic standards we maintain and the rigorous learning environment we provide our students.
Consistently ranked amongst the top IB schools in Gurgaon, HIXS is spread over 2 campuses- Junior Campus for Nursery to Grade 2 and Middle & Senior Campus for Grade 3 to Grade 12.
The HIXS Primary Campus at DLF 5 has a contemporary design that prioritizes environmental sustainability and is equipped with cutting-edge academic and sports facilities. We firmly believe that space is the third teacher and has a significant impact on the depth of students’ learning, and our campuses are designed to be learner-centric and knowledge-centric, fostering an atmosphere that encourages students to take ownership of their learning and seek out information rather than solely relying on teachers.
These learning opportunities begin in the Primary Programme and continue through to grade 12 and may also include bringing in experts into the classrooms who conduct seminars and workshops. In addition, our fieldwork trips off campus includes such opportunities as service projects, community-based research and application of skills, and wilderness excursions that bring students in contact with the natural world and learning from more diverse communities.
Inclusion does not mean that we treat all children the same; on the contrary, supporting each child means that while we treat all children fairly, we also insure that each child gets what she needs individually to make the most progress. We also recognise that all children do not develop at the same rate nor do they achieve success according to one standardised definition, so we insure personalised learning for each child, meaning each individual is challenged at the exact level she needs. We work from the fundamental belief that children reach understanding or mastery of the same concept or skill at different rates, and that this is not only normal but also desirable so that all are challenged and engaged.
We recognise that most adults have gone through the traditional system of education and that our approach challenges many of their mental models about education. We try to redesign the mental models and align them more to our world view by organising interaction sessions and workshops for parents. We hold around three to four workshops plus four to five individual and group interactions per year. Participation in such workshops and interactive sessions is mandatory.
Parents are also invited to contribute by volunteering for different events in school such as outbound trips, story week, classroom support, co-curricular activities and more.
