Part of the "international" education at TISB is the fact that students interact with others from many other cultures and build acceptance for beliefs different than their own. Dr Bindu Hari, Director of TISB, believes that the school is "strongly aligned to an educational paradigm that focuses on empowering students with appropriate life skills and a sound knowledge domain bearing particular relevance in the context of a globalised world." The mission of TISB also states that the school's education system "involves building up more than a body of knowledge" as “students need to have skills and attitudes to be successful life-long learners."
