It is a great pleasure for me to announce the huge success of the graduating class of 2013 in their college placements throughout the world.  Our class of 118 students has received 630 offers of acceptance from some of the finest universities around the world!

The Class of 2013 has also had phenomenal success in obtaining large scholarships, with the grand total so far at USD $5.3 million and climbing daily.  Some of the largest combined total scholarships per student include:

These are just the top five of over 50 major scholarship awardees at TISB this year.


he graduating class of 2013 has been amazingly successful in their college placements and they have wonderful futures ahead of them.  The story is not over yet, since we have not yet heard from the Australian, Singaporean and Indian Universities, but I would like to congratulate every member of the class for their superb good fortune and also to thank all of the staff of TISB for their total dedication to making children’s and parents’ dreams come true year after year.

Best wishes,
