The Oberai School of Integrated Studies, known as THE OASIS, is a distinguished educational endeavour initiated by Shri Rakesh Oberai and his family in the scenic environs of Dehradun. This venture was conceived with the vision to address the pressing need for a day-boarding institution that offers a comprehensive and integrated education, nurturing the holistic development of each child.

The institution is proudly backed by the esteemed Oberai family, a pillar of the Dehradun community since 1947, when Shri Sardari Lal Oberai first established their presence. Renowned for their entrepreneurial spirit, the Oberai family has also dedicated significant efforts towards philanthropic causes, particularly in the realms of education and healthcare for the underprivileged.

Through THE OASIS, the Oberai family continues to embody their long standing commitment to societal betterment, ensuring that each new generation has the opportunity to thrive in a nurturing and intellectually stimulating environment.

“At The OASIS, our aspiration is to be an institution of exceptional standing, contemporary in our approach while deeply rooted in enduring values. We aim to cultivate not only intellectual capacities but also a profound sense of integrity in our students, empowering them to contribute positively to society and the environment.”
