We live in an interconnected and complex world that is changing at an unprecedented pace. Preparing children  to succeed in this challenging environment demands a flexible and real-world based approach to education. Indeed it requires a dynamic school that can turn learning into a life-long journey of enquiry and discovery, culminating in knowledge that matters. While academic strength is essential to survive, children need excellent soft skills, communication skills, understanding of global culture and its appreciation, a good character,an attitude to be a lifelong learner and contribute to the society at large. Ethics and values, morals and discipline need to be ingrained into them during the formative years of schooling, to mould them into good human beings who are capable of taking the world into their stride.

At YIS, we believe that the objective of education is not just to inform, but also to empower and transform. With this philosophy at its core, we have nurtured an ideal schooling environment where each child can learn, thrive and achieve his/ her fullest potential and most importantly have fun in the process. Experienced and knowledgeable teachers help to draw out latent potential and foster growth while a versatile curriculum proffers a perfect blend of academics and experiential learning. Therefore, all our activities are meticulously planned to bring out the leadership qualities in children and to train them to be confident, capable and responsible citizens of tomorrow.
Our school, has come a long way and enjoys a reputation for excellence in academics, sports and cultural activities. This synergy of achievements is born from the commitment of our dedicated, well – qualified staff, the vision of the patrons at the helm of affairs and the spirit of confidence and dynamism that our students generate.
