Stepping Stones High School proudly hosted the IC3 regional forum 2022 in association with the IC3 Institute. More than 120 schools Principals, Heads of Institutes, Teachers and counsellors around Marathwada region attended the forum.


The inception of Stepping Stones began with only 65 children, and now, our vast family has grown to include over 1800 students. With more than 40 years of experience in Education and schooling, students and their overall development have been the central focus of our lives.

In 2017 we started with an IGCSE & CAIE curriculum. Currently, we are the only IGCSE & CAIE school in Aurangabad and the only international school in Aurangabad. Technology has become pervasive in our lives, and we have taken care to implement this in our classrooms as well. Our teachers are facilitators of this change, and as a school, we strive to create positive digital imprints for our students. We are renowned for our range of co-curricular activities that offer our students the ideal platform for expressing themselves and attaining their highest potential.

Our school remains way ahead of its contemporaries through its vision and method of teaching. Being the only school in Aurangabad, Stepping Stones International remains the only school to spread its wings not only at the national level but even at the international level. Through our application-based teaching methods, we instil in our students the desire to develop an informed curiosity, to question and explore, and apply their cognitive processes to everything they experience. This is implemented through several unique methods of learning that make every student look forward to a new day at school.

Stepping Stones High School has been the pride and privilege of the family that has been in education for the past 37 years. It is a journey that started in 1983 with Toddlers Nursery that still dedicates itself to providing the best environment for children. The journey has not been without its challenges, we had to navigate through obstacles of many sorts to provide the space conducive to learning and development of students in Aurangabad. Despite the obstacles, milestones have been achieved when we incorporated CBSE in 2003. After 14 years, we were proud to take Stepping Stones a step forward by including IGCSE & CAIE as a curriculum. But it is our unwavering commitment towards pupils and belief in them that made the journey a wonderful one. This commitment remains unchanged.
