Welcome To TIS!
The Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar is a CBSE-affiliated private school in New Delhi, India. We provide education for students from Nursery (age 3+) to Class XII, with a total of 1850 students. We have three sections in each class up to Class X, with 40-45 students per section. We have four sections for Classes XI-XII: Science (medical), Science (non-medical), Commerce, and Humanities. While maintaining a strong focus on academic excellence, our school prepares students for the 21st century through an emphasis on technology, holistic development, extra- and co-curricular activities, and international exposure.
The school office will remain open on all working days (Monday to Friday) from 8 am to 12:30 pm
Dr. Hari Sen, the founder of the Tagore International Schools, was a woman ahead of her time. She sailed to the USA in 1947 to complete an MA-PhD in Education from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating, Dr. Sen rejected job offers from MNCs and the newly-formed United Nations and returned to India to do something for her country. After many years running women’s workshops and a small school, she established the Tagore Education Society in 1964, with its first school in Defence Colony up to Class V. Dr. Sen’s husband, IPS officer JK Sen, donated personal land for Dr Sen to build a full school in East of Kailash, which became operational in 1975. The Delhi Development Authority also awarded Dr. Sen land in Vasant Vihar for this branch, which has been running since 1972.
Dr Sen’s goal was simple: to provide affordable yet modern, high-quality Indian education. She named the schools after Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, a famed Indian polymath, because she was deeply influenced by his ideas that education must promote freedom of thought and speech, and inculcate in students international humanist values. 50 years later, the school still runs on these foundational principles.

We Are Appreciated
Our daughter, Khushi, is a differently-abled child studying in TIS for the past nine years. When she was born, we were worried about her education and career. But seeing her grow and become independent, we are extremely thankful to the school, her teachers, and all the staff for their support and affection towards Khushi.

We had the privilege of attending the Senior Annual Prize Distribution at the school and were thoroughly impressed by the awards and accolades. But most importantly, we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the gesture of the school management of recognizing the work of their support staff. And seeing children give them a standing ovation! It really shows the values that the school is inculcating among the students.
The tremendous hard work and dedication shown by all of you has won my and my son’s hearts. It’s April 7th – the first day of my son’s online classes in a new school. He is a new admission, and so I was a bit worried. But you all are fabulous facilitators and mentors. My son is delighted and excited to meet his teachers online. I must also appreciate the timely delivery of the planned classes, well-structured assignments and regular communication with the parents.
I am writing this letter to thank our school teachers, management and administration for taking such pains to keep the students’ future bright in the pandemic. I believe that our school was amongst the first few schools that took the initiative to start online classes within a week when schools were closed by the government. I have seen the efforts teachers put in to ensure that every child understands the concept clearly. They provide study material, PowerPoint presentations, Google Forms questions to solve at home, various Youtube links, etc. related to the subject and the topic that needs to be taught.
Thank you, Ms. Vandana Jerath for the Eid wishes. Wishing a very Happy Eid to you and everyone in the family. Would like to mention that we couldn’t help appreciate the beautiful video. And generally, all the videos and wishes that come on various festivals from Tagore are exceptionally well-meaning and in-depth. I am really thankful for the values that TIS upholds.

This year has been very challenging for the teachers and we can’t thank you all enough for making this unusual school year fun and productive. Teachers often don’t get their due but this pandemic we all have realized how much hard work and love goes into this noble profession. Thank you and take care.
Being at home with the child and observing them take exams and attend classes, we have realised the strong foundation that the school has built in the students. During the journey of the Spelling Bee competition, we realised how well phonetics have been taught to the child. Though he could not win, he was still hopeful, excited, and confident. Humble thanks to you and Renu Ma’am!
I don’t know where to begin to say words of gratitude to all the teachers and management of TIS. As a parent, I would take this opportunity to thank you for going beyond and helping our children, to learn and make learning interesting every day, in such difficult times of corona. My kids looked forward to attending every single class of 2020. They enjoyed and learned every moment of online classes. We really appreciate all the hard work all the teachers have put in. Thank you so much for guiding, directing, engaging, encouraging and last but not least for showing immense patience for our kids. Everything you are doing is making big difference in the life of our children.

We look forward everyday to the worksheets and videos sent by the teachers. Since both my kids are small, they are quite enthusiastic about their work and enjoy not only the academic work but also the art and craft activities, the dance and singing and the PE schedule sent for them. The most interesting part is the feedback they receive for their efforts. I must say the teachers are working tirelessly to provide very interesting videos and worksheets and revisions through their Google forms. It is wonderful to note that they even incorporate games in their classes to keep these little ones engaged and involved. We even play them later again after the school work is over!
Gauri Ma’am, No words could ever express how much you inspire me every single day to work harder to achieve what I desire and it makes me aspire to be a better person. I remember when I had just entered TIS, I was this shy person who would be terrified to even speak up on the microphone to answer a simple question. In a short period of time, you have turned me into this confident and bold person who isn’t afraid of answering or speaking up anymore. You have made me realize that it’s okay to be wrong and that teachers like you will always be there to guide us to make that wrong right again. Thank you for everything.
