"Our mission is to provide positive catalytic impulses to every CHILD to stretch his inherent learning competencies through a self discovery process."

At Venkateshwar International School, the uniqueness of each child is recognized, nurtured and treasured. Emphasis is on LEARNING and not on teaching.

Education is a complete process that leads to the attainment of the full potential of the child. Our endeavor is to equip our students with life-skills to face the real world - be it planning, organizing, deciding, questioning, reasoning, analyzing, team-building, communicating effectively or dealing with challenges confidently. 

Our focus is to develop our students as global citizens, with tolerance, respect and appreciation of diverse cultures and religions for a life-time learning experience. They should be self-motivated, independent, confident decision makers to take up a leadership roles in future.

The school curriculum has been painstakingly planned on scientific guidelines to provide students with intellectual stimulation, physical robustness, social adaptability, emotional independence and leadership qualities. It is our endeavor to establish a quality – conscious school where……
