            Best School in Chennai
            AISC is a little different than regular schools, in the sense that it is not open to general population. It offers a U.S. style educational program for American and international students who are temporarily resident in India. The school operates primarily for foreigners. This is based on host country rules enforced by Indian External Affairs Ministry.
