The Overseas School of Colombo (OSC) strives to be a model of excellence delivering an academically rigorous yet holistic education enhanced by rich co-curricular activities. The “OSC experience” provides an abundance of service – learning activities and projects in support of our vision and mission. Our small class sizes allow for personalised attention and our warm and friendly relationships provide positive and trusting teacher-student rapport.
With more than 40+ nationalities across our school, we are an international family that lives and breathes our motto every day, Unity in Diversity. We build intercultural awareness, fluency and collaboration skills through our curriculum units and project design. The experiential learning opportunities we offer our students instil responsibility, empathy, and sustainable practices in our
co-shared fragile world. To us, teaching is much more than just covering the curriculum objectives, it is shaping a human being to be a contributing citizen – a responsibility we hold dear.
Unity in Diversity
Our students and teachers greatly appreciate the richness and heritage of Sri Lankan culture because our commitment to international education starts with the understanding that we have to know our local context and culture before we can appreciate someone else’s.
