Welcome to Vellore International School!
Having established an Engineering Institution, VIT, with over 50,000 students from 50+ countries, which has been recognized as an Institution of Eminence by Govt. of India, we decided to create a modern international school in Chennai with state of the art facilities, based on Indian culture.
Now, VIS has taken shape in 35 acres of green surroundings amidst 1500 acres of reserve forest area, yet close to Chennai, within 5 km from major IT parks.
At VIS, we have the best and experienced teachers drawn from all over the world. Each student will be groomed as an Independent thinker with the realization of team spirit. We believe in nurturing our children by identifying their strengths and talents, and helping them channel their efforts to succeed in what they are passionate about. Our curriculum and teaching methodology provide great emphasis on flexibility and adaptability.
We plan to have a diversity of students drawn from India and rest of the world. At VIS, we recognise the vital role of arts and co-curricular activities in the development of our children. Hence, we have built excellent facilities and also tied up with leading centres and eminent personalities to teach and train art, music, dance, drama, reading, debating, various individual and team sports, to name a few.
We invite you to visit our campus and have a first-hand feel of Vellore International School.
Dear Parents and Students,
Thank you for choosing VIS as your partner in education. It is a pleasure to introduce to you a schooling life filled with Innovation, Invention and Indelibility. These three ‘I’s are instrumental in turning V’I’S unique.
VIS is an active learning school with an inspiring, enriching, engaging, appealing and challenging curriculum that will prepare the students for achievement and accomplishment, while at VIS and for the years that ensue in their lives.
At VIS, an internationally-minded education for the future built on one’s own culture and heritage will provide the students with the prospects to widen critical thinking about intricate ‘global’ issues inside and outside the classroom. This is something that people of all ages need, for even young children encounter contentious issues through the media and modern communication technology. Far from endorsing one set of solutions, an internationally-minded education promotes children to explore, develop and express their own values and opinions without fear or favour, whilst listening to and respecting others points of view.
Life is not always about successes; there can be a lot of adversities. Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure conquer them and drain their steadfastness, our carefully tailored life skills programme will help them face any adversity.
It is a proven fact that academic learning and sports education complement each other. It also teaches discipline, determination to win, willpower, leadership, the spirit of sharing, team spirit, tolerance and many more. Therefore, if sports education is carried out with a good academic curriculum, the student’s overall personality is enhanced to an appealing extent. Sports, therefore, is not an extracurricular activity for VISionaries; it is a curricular activity well embedded in the curriculum.
The career guidance and college readiness programme of VIS, will guide each student to find their real talent and pursue them with fervour, from the time they join the school.In short, they will be prepared to thrive and live a balanced life of leadership in their chosen fields with finesse, passion and compassion.
