About the school
Tagore International School was founded by Dr. Mrs. H. Sen in 1964 with the aim of creating a free atmosphere where children develop their personality to the fullest extent. It is an institution which constantly endeavours to excel in every field is strategically located in between the posh colonies of Greater Kailash , South Extension, Defence Colonry, Sadiq Nagar, Kailash Hills, and East of Kailash. The salubrious surroundings with the school sharing its wall with a nursery give it a conducive environment for the nurturing ofyoung impressionable minds.
The approach to the school is affable and effortless because of its easy accessibility through a wide road which is well connected with the outer and inner ring roads and Nehru Place. Its easy approachability and strategic location makes it one of the most acclaimed schools in the area.
Added to this, it is a highly guarded, harboured and protected school in the vicinity. High walls have been erected to halt any encroachment.The entry to the school is restricted as security guards have been posted at the front gate to immobilize any illegal entry into the premises.All these efforts have been put, to make it one of the most sought after school in the area.
Tagore International School endeavours to provide the finest education encompassed within state-of-the-art infrastructure. Artistic and academic pursuits are encouraged equally and students have ready exposure to global heritage and cultures. The school’s curriculum lays emphasis on concepts and skills, rather than on textbooks. Tagoreans gain a clear sense of direction paved by their analytical approach, critical thinking skills and creative sagacity. Effective interpersonal and collaborative communication shapes these global citizens and leaders. Tagore International School strives towards working with the parents and the community for preparing students to be responsible , productive, and compassionate members of a global community by placing the child at the centre of the learning process.
“A worthy Child at the Centre” is a vision that embraces the next decade of TIS’s future.

The Tagorean Emblem represents three TIS. The centre I is the leaping flame of the candle, signifying everlasting knowledge, enclosed by T which formsthe arms and legs of the child who is never tired in his quest for this knowledge or ‘vidya’. Like the light of the candle, the child is continuously striving to reach for the stars.
‘I am worthy’, says the child. This is a positive self-realisation and this belief guides the student on the path of true knowledge. It helps her / him evolve as a self-confident, multi-faceted human being.
This is the simple Tagorean philosophy:Belief in Self.

I am the Truth and Joy Forever”
