The school motto as expressed in Sanskrit reflects that 'life and learning are one', and the Latin translation is 'life is for learning' or 'learning is for life' - Vita Eadem Studia. The three expressions are open to very rich interpretation, and the choice of two ancient languages of scholarship is a representation of the fusion of cultural excellence found at TISB.

TISB is situated in a perfect Indian setting yet delivers an international education.

The buildings are all modern and spacious and offer the students the near-comfort of home in the open countryside of India’s Garden City, also known as Asia’s Silicon City, Bangalore.

The education system, besides providing an all-round education intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically, also offers guidance in critical thinking, social openness and in purposeful research. Students are given opportunities to develop their own talents as well as to be aware of national and global issues, while contributing to the healthy development of the needs of their own school campus and community.

Homework is given to encourage and develop independent study skills and to complement particular fields of study. A homework timetable is issued to all students who are required to complete the work as assigned by subject teachers.

On entry into the School, each pupil is placed in a Form Group of not more than 25 under a Form Tutor who will be responsible for monitoring all aspects of progress and welfare. The Form Tutor is the first point of contact for parents on any issue concerning the child. The School will actively encourage strong links with parents to ensure that at all times they are kept fully informed of any concerns that they or the school may have.

Regular Parent Evenings/Mornings will take place and these, along with half yearly reports and occasional interim reports, will ensure that each pupil’s progress is closely monitored. 

The International School Bangalore (TISB) aims to provide an exciting all-round education as the first stage in a personally fulfilling and socially useful life. It prepares students for University studies worldwide.

Our students come from internationally minded families who for reasons of culture or residence have an affinity towards India.

Young people need to be excited about the world they live in. It is a complex and sometimes confusing place but the fundamental aim of good education is that the students are given an opportunity to make sense of the world and their place in it. This involves building up more than a body of knowledge; students need to have skills and attitudes to be successful life-long learners.
