TVS Academy, Tumkur is situated in a small town in Karnataka in a beautiful wooded campus. The school supports a flexible curriculum that takes into account children’s abilities and interests. Notions of quality, excellence and integrity form the basis of the teaching-learning program in this school. Learning becomes more meaningful as students explore issues that are critical to them and their society. Students are motivated to develop benchmarks of excellence, based on their strengths, supported by a dedicated group of teachers. Parents are actively encouraged to collaborate in the learning process especially in the Preschool and Junior school levels.
Students actively work with children in neighbouring village schools and participate in community welfare programs. They engage with the local environmental groups to understand the impact of human activity on the local forests. These interactions help students perceive the many complex issues that challenge their community and inspires them to work towards change.
