4.13.16 – Librarian (Senior School)
Woodstock School, Mussoorie, India
Sarah P’s comments: Positions in India appear fairly rarely. This well-established boarding school is located in a remote area and might not be a good fit for those who enjoy city life. The school is well-established however and the reviews are positive overall (see International School Reviews for specifics).
