Moreover, the pandemic having brought unprecedented disruptions and massive changes to education, many big changes and amendments were made to the system, among which – curating a one of a kind curriculum, which is developmental, authentic, student-centered, & inquiry-based, schools across the length and breadth of our country are capitalizing on strengths of both synchronous and asynchronous learning, in turn, working towards producing the best. One such renowned school, having risen under the vast umbrella of Cambridge Group and always striving towards creating a system that is pro children – The Cambridge International School (TCIS), comes as a bright light of hope, even during these gloomy times of turmoil.
Being the first CBSE school under the Cambridge Group and having the most experienced teachers and management, who themselves have more than 3 decades of experience, TCIS under the abled leadership of Haneef Ahmed – the founder and a visionary, has already become a go-to place where world-class entrepreneurs are produced, every year.
