The International School of Hyderabad is non-profit making.
The school was initially established by a group of parents in 1972. In 1982 the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) received permission to operate a school to provide education for children of expatriates and Indians from the Ministry of foreign Affairs. It also became its major sponsor, funding the present purpose-built school on the former site of the ICRISAT Staff Recreation Club in the Banjara Hills area of the city.
ICRISAT continues to play vital role in supporting and helping to develop the school and its facilities. The formal responsibility of managing the School lies with the Director General of ICRISAT. The Director General has delegated this responsibility to the Principal and the Special Advisor to the Director General of ICRISAT for Educational Affairs. To help the Principal in managing the School, ICRISAT has formalised a system of Board of Governors to recommend policies and give advice on, budget, governance, and school development plans.
