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.

TIS strives to foster a school climate that is safe and which acknowledges individual differences; educates young minds to recognise their potential and set a high bench for themselves. It provides an environment where 21st century skills of critical thinking, leadership and effective communication are the hallmarks of the learning process.
To impart education that provides relevant, meaningful and diverse learning opportunities which support students in their aspirations, encourage them to fortify their innate strengths and spur them to productively engage with the community.
