Tagore Foundation School Kolkata is an inclusive school in the heart of the City of Joy, Kolkata established in the year 2008. Tagore Foundation School Kolkata for Special Education is a child-centered, providing full -time and resource educational services to students with special needs, including Language Delay, Language Disorder, Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder and Developmental Delay. The continuum of services starts with Early Intervention for young children considered to be at risk and continuing to the Pre-School, Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary School academic levels, as well as providing Life Skills and Pre-Vocational Classes for older students who have reached their academic potential.
Tagore Foundation School Kolkata is based on the premise that every child has a right to an education. We firmly believe - it is our responsibility to maximise the academic, social and physical potential of each and every child. It is also our responsibility to provide a nurturing, structured and safe environment in which to learn.
The School offers activities at varying levels of involvement and complexity, to give our students exposure to numerous leisure options and interest groups, including student leadership, sports, the arts and information. These enable our students to explore and discover their interests and strengths, and teach values to guide them to become active, contributing members of society.
