"Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It's about widening your knowledge and absorbing the truth about life". Shakuntala Devi

"If a sapling is carefully planted, watered and nurtured by a gardener, it will grow into a big tree and provide flowers, fruits and shade to all". If children are nurtured and trained properly from their earliest childhood, they will grow up to be a worthy citizen of our country with all the necessary virtues whom we will always be proud of. We at Podar International School, Bengaluru 1 strive to ensure that each of our children grows up to become a good human being caring for others and prove to be a better citizen of our country. We focus on complete development of our students by involving them in both scholastic & co-scholastic activities. Our objective is not merely to train students to clear the examinations, but to encourage their scientific temper, foster creativity and most importantly inculcate the values and standards that are essential to become worthy citizens of our country. We provide ample opportunities and suitable platforms to our young Podarites to realize, understand & explore a wide variety of learning experiences to use their talents. By getting a chance to participate in various activities such as quizzes, extempore, debating and other personality development activities and Clubs of different nature, they sharpen their skills, learn ethical and moral values and learn life skills to adapt themselves to any situation in life. Our approach has been to ensure our students to become independent thinkers, good communicators, adaptors to the global scenario, be modern citizens with adequate knowledge on technology and above all be good human beings having traditional values and modern thoughts. We are committed to provide rich, diverse and exciting educational and intellectually challenging environment to our children which will empower them to become innovative thinkers, creative, problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to face 21st century challenges. The staff and students have been working persistently towards taking the school to pinnacles of glory.

I feel privileged to be a part of such a great Institute which has its rich culture and ethos and follows the legacy of our Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi who was the first President of the Podar Education Trust.

Together we will cherish their success. We expect continuous support of our parents to manifest our vision and mission. And I am sure that your journey with us will be an encouraging, full of activities and joyful one.

Regards and Best Wishes
