We welcome you to Podar International School, (GopalaGowda Layout) Shivamogga-2 with a commitment to nurture and equip young learners with the uncommon ability of self-exploration and development. Our aim is to nurture the children to become confident, sensitive, socially committed and well-rounded individuals, equipped to become young envoys of progress. Our children grow in the best of environment and under the guidance of competent faculty, elements indispensable today for gaining knowledge and understanding.

In this sort of environment, there are all kinds of nooks and crannies to meet a variety of learning need, including areas for group work and discussions, areas for creating places to study and think alone, and whenever possible, outdoor spaces to breathe in fresh air and actively play. Our Mission is to develop and equip children of India for the challenges of the 21st century. We at PIS, Shivamogga (Gopalagowda Layout), provide a perfect learning environment required for a 21st century learner.

We focus on the exploration of authentic, real world, and relevant topics, issues and problems in the contexts in which they occur. Learning is not taught as memorizing subject-specific facts and concepts in a vacuum, but rather as cross-disciplinary and in real-world contexts. Students are not just consumers of content, but are given opportunities to have a voice and to contribute to the real world by creating content and artifacts to share with an authentic audience as a part of their learning process.

We focus on core competencies such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving that help students thrive in today’s world. Holistic development of a child is given utmost importance.

"Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man". - Swami Vivekananda.
