The International School Bangalore (TISB) is one of the premier education institutes in Bangalore. It is a private school founded by Dr. K. P. GopalKrishna and is a sister school of National Public Schools, Bangalore.
The focus of the school is not only on academic excellence but also on all-round development of students. The students are mostly from rich NRI families as the fees is very high.
The other thing about this school is that their session ends somewhere in August so most of the Indian competitive exams are over by then. The staff at TISB said their focus is on getting students into premier institutes in USA, UK, Australia etc.

Bangalore has a huge expat population and TISB caters to that segment. It has a mix of indian and international education, so good for people who can do with their kids trying a little extra. Strict on discipline. Not sit back and relaxed environment, pressure to perform will always be there though not anywhere close as much as in indian schools. They don't have IB for all grades and don't even plan to. Check their website to list which system followed in which level. I think they follow IGSCE intentionally in middle school as they feel its more intense and prepares kids to perform better in IB in senior school. So expat kids find it very hard.- by Ashish on Jun 03, 2010
