Education for Life
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

The TSIS academics provides an international education with a firm focus on global issues by engaging students from different cultures within the school in a broad curriculum that promotes worldwide concerns.

Total Student Development Programmes (TSDP)

The issue relating to Human Development has come to the fore in the last few decades because of the fact that the benefits of economic growth do not necessarily accrue to all the sections of the community automatically. Apart from the basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter, other human choices include long life, good health, and adequate education. Moreover the industry expectations have changed over a period of time: Business Houses tend to look for the candidates who have creative ideas with impressive spoken and leadership skills. In the context of above TSIS has pioneered a Total Student Development Programme (TSDP) and we feel proud to mention that we are the only school offering a structured and well balanced programme for the overall development of the child.

Every day one hour session is devoted to nurture the students in different areas based upon structured curriculum.

All behaviour has a reason and the Nurturing Programme encourages children to look beyond the immediate and recognize how our thoughts and behavior are driven by our emotions. TNP is a potent means for helping children to express their inborn cultural, creative, literary, scientific and aesthetic talents. The Talent Nurturing Programme has Clubs and Societies which are categorized as per their nature of productivity or attainment by the participants.TNP programme has been categorized in three different areas.
