Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and modern facilities, our school is a place where students can explore their interests, develop new skills, and prepare for their future.

Student-Centered Approach: At our school, we put students at the center of everything we do. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each individual student, providing a personalized learning experience that encourages students to reach their full potential. With small class sizes and a supportive learning environment, students receive the attention and guidance they need to succeed.

Community-Focused: Highgate International School is more than just a place of learning, it’s a community hub. We believe that education is a collaborative effort between students, teachers, parents, and the community. Our school is a place where everyone is welcome, and we work together to create a safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environment for all.

Global Perspective: We are focused on providing students with a global perspective.

Through international programs, language courses, and cultural experiences, students gain a deeper understanding of different cultures and develop skills to thrive in a global economy.

Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility: Highgate is committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility. With eco-friendly facilities, green spaces, and a curriculum that emphasizes environmental stewardship, we aim to teach our students the importance of protecting our planet and living sustainably. Through hands-on experiences, students learn how to be responsible citizens who contribute to a better future for all.

About the Highgate logo and motto

The school’s motto “sapientia et virtus” – Latin for “wisdom and virtue” – reflects its philosophy that in today’s world where knowledge is freely available in the ocean of the internet, it has become even more important to develop good judgement and a sense of ethics in using that knowledge for the good of all.

The timeless values of moral excellence, integrity and honesty are summarized in “virtue”.

The two words together define the ideal, complete human being, with a well-balanced head and heart, who contributes richly to the global world.

The colour green and the image of the tree and plants symbolize growth, nature and nurture and the commitment to be responsible and responsive to Green initiatives. The protection and care of adults is depicted by the young plants under the umbrella of the large banyan tree – a traditional Indian symbol of eternal wisdom and growth.

The image of the globe inside the open book speaks for how knowledge, wisdom and virtue together have the power to change the world and how a world of possibilities open up when one is equipped with the strength of all three.

The school’s stated vision is a commitment to provide educational excellence to all, by opening up a wide array of opportunities for the development of multidimensional personality of each student. The school works to empower students to lead productive and fulfilling lives as lifelong learners and responsible citizens of the world.
