The school was established in 1986 by the TVS Educational Society, to provide an excellent education to the children of the personnel in the TVS group of industries in Tumkur. After a few years, the school was opened to the local community.
The vision of the founder was to create a school with an open and free learning environment where students grow to be intelligent, reflective, sensitive and caring individuals. A group of enlightened educators inspired and supported the founder to realize and sustain this vision.
The school established a Montessori based learning program in a modest house. As the numbers of children grew the school moved to a larger space, in the outskirts of Tumkur. The founders interacted with exciting new architects to create an eco- friendly school built out of the very earth that it now stands on. The school when completed resembled a picturesque Indian hamlet with its tiled and thatched roofs.
The school grew to include the middle and senior sections, and as the number of children grew we moved to a 15-acre campus with a magnificent banyan tree, and views of a medieval Jaina temple on a stark black hillock.
A number of buildings were added over the years. We landscaped the school with trees which are all native to the area, and we hoped it would serve as a living laboratory for our students. We have chosen to remain as a single section school of 500 students, with over 50 teachers to ensure that each child is attended to and cared for.
The school has attracted dedicated teachers from the Tumkur community, who consider the school as their home. Over 700 students have passed out from the school since its inception. The school is today supported by an ever-growing and enthusiastic group of alumni and parents.
