“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and critically. Yet, intelligence plus character is the goal of true education”, breathing this ideology to its fullest essence, Tithonus International School (TIS), one of the premier institutions in and around the Budaun region, focuses primarily on the overall personality development of students. Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. Established in 2013, Tithonus International School, is a co-ed school that is being run under the aegis of Shri Ram Autar Agarwal Memorial Trust. The Trust believes in providing an atmosphere to the students for their multifaceted development, where children are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence which can only be possible in a holistic, student-centric environment.
With an uncompromising attitude towards providing quality education, the school has well-equipped labs, library, sports equipment, and well-ventilated classrooms along with lush green surroundings and a peaceful ambience. A qualified and experienced faculty further ensures that the students receive the most memorable learning experiences.
Shri Sharad Bansal, Managing Director, Tithonus International School, asserts, “At TIS, we emphasize on activity-based learning. Keeping in lieu of the NEP, our teachers are encouraged to take up live experiments to make classroom learning more interactive”. Furthermore, nature walks, activity-based worksheets & assignments, group discussions, talk shows, and various other innovative methods are employed in the classrooms regularly.
Programs offered at the school are Kindergarten and Classes I – XII for all eligible students. At Kindergarten, the focus is on facilitating the development of students’ cognitive and motor skills besides providing them the required exposure to pursue their natural curiosity and imagination in a stimulating and exciting environment. For class es I-VIII, Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is followed and classes IX – XII curriculum is formulated in accordance with NCERT syllabus and CBSE guidelines.
The best time to apply for admissions at Tithonus International School is during February and March. The school conducts interaction with parents and their wards for classes PNC to III, whereas for classes IV & above, a written examination based on child’s understanding of concepts and reasoning skills is conducted.SinceTIS is one of the best CBSE Schools in Budaun, it comes with a systematic, simple registration and admission process and also accepts online payments and an online admission enquiry.
Parents’ & their Roles
At Tithonus International School, the faculty believes that schools alone cannot address all the developmental needs of a student. The meaningful involvement of parents and their support is an indispensable part of any educational organization’s success. Hence, to strengthen the bond with the parents, Open House Sessions are organized at regular intervals, which are presided by the school’s Principal. Here, parents are bestowed with multiple opportunities to interact with him directly from a public platform, and to also put forth their queries, suggestions, and complaints. Parent Teacher Meetings and calls to parents by counsellors to seek their suggestions are also conducted regularly.
Pandemic posed a tough challenge regarding the provision of enriching learning experiences to the students who were confined to their homes. Shri Sharad Bansal adds, “During such unpredictable times of fear and stress, we, at Tithonus International School, had extensively planned online academic and co-curricular activities so that students did not suffer any loss of academics and were also able to de-stress themselves”. In fact, Tithonus International School was the only school in and around Budaun region, which provided online education through a hired app called Hello Parent App. Unit Tests, Half Yearly & Annual Examinations, and various other co – curricular activities were successfully conducted through the app.
To keep the faculty abreast with innovative methods of teaching and changing needs of teaching-learning in classroom, workshops are duly organized in the premises. The teachers are also encouraged to participate in Offline/Online Orientation Programmes organized by CBSE, various government agencies, and leading publication houses.
Till date, the school has achieved exceptional results in the academic sphere and the students have excelled in various co-curricular activities. To further accomplish the vision of grooming the finest all-round personalities, the school provides a unique platform to the students through a plethora of activities that not only imbibe the right values in students, but also enhance their inherent skills. The activities organized in this regard include counselling of students by renowned resource persons and achievers. To create responsible and aware citizens of tomorrow environment weeks, special assemblies, social awareness campaigns are also organised in the premises. The school also conducts hobby classes comprising Taekwondo, Music, Dance, Fine Arts, Personality Development and Foreign language classes.
At TIS, our vision is to empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to the global world.
