The Journey

In 1964, a young visionary, suffused with the fervour of nationalism, left a lucrative career and stepped into the realm of education to establish "The Tagore Education Society". Founded by Dr. (Mrs.) Hari Sen and Mr. Jitender Sen, the society adopted three goals: academic excellence, the spirit of innovation and the zeal to impart value-based education.

Tagore Schools have left indelible footprints on the sands of time. The journey began with a small school in Lajpat Nagar in the year 1964. Prompted by its success, the society decided to set up another school in Vasant Vihar. Today, Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, is renowned for its disciplined yet nurturing environment wherein students imbibe noble values, strive towards brilliance and cultivate an insight about the social concerns.

 Our Vision

Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, 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.

The School's philosophy is well illustrated in Rabindranath Tagore's words:

"I was brought up in an atmosphere of aspiration, aspiration for the expansion of the human spirit. Such an opportunity has given me confidence in the We in our home sought freedom of power in our language, freedom of imagination in our literature, freedom of soul in our religious creeds, and that of mind in our social environment. power of education which is one with life and only which can give us real freedom, the highest that is claimed for man, his freedom of moral communion in the human world".


The Tagorean emblem is the interplay of three letters: T I S. The central ‘I’ is the leaping flame of the candle, signifying everlasting knowledge. It is enclosed by ‘T’ which forms the arms and legs of the child who is never tired in his quest for this 'Vidya' or knowledge. Like the light of the candle, the child is continuously striving to reach for the stars, denoted by the letter ‘S’.

The school has adopted the motto, “Aham Yogyaha Asmi" or “I am worthy ". This is a positive self-realisation and this belief guides the student on the path of true knowledge. It helps a child to evolve as a confident, multi-faceted human being.

This is the simple Tagorean philosophy: ' Belief in Self '.

" I Am What I Am.

I am the Truth and Joy Forever."
