World’s largest school

Lucknow is home to the world’s largest school (in terms of students). The City Montessori School has more than 45,000 students. The school, which spreads over several campuses, can’t gather for assembly as there is no venue in town that is big enough!

The world’s largest university is the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) in Delhi with over 4 million students — ten times larger than its U.S. equivalent, the online University of Phoenix.
