Many TCS alumni are placed in top-ranked universities and companies, both in India and abroad. Most recollect their TCS experience as foundation and character-building:
“In TCS I learnt a new way of learning which is psychologically
less taxing, more enjoyable and yet, still rigorous. The emphasis is
on internalising knowledge, as opposed to simply gathering it for the
sake of sitting exams. Indeed, the Economics module that I took in TCS
has played a key role in me pursuing my Finance PhD and therefore,
affected my life in a truly profound way.“
Lecturer in Finance, University of Bristol, UK
“My stint at The Cambridge School was truly life altering! The friends I have made in Cambridge are not just from very distinct backgrounds and countries but the exposure to such a diversified fraternity was an immense boost to my confidence and thought-process. The student-teacher ratio in classrooms resulted in deep and personal bonds with each teacher and their contributions have been significant in my personality development in those formative years. I am grateful to The Cambridge School not just for the exceptional educational experience but for shaping me as a well-grounded individual.“

“Prior to joining TCS I was in another school. I was made to feel that I was generally bad at everything and should quit school and take up vocational training. I had nearly given up on getting anywhere in life and that’s when I came across The Cambridge School. TCS game me a new outlook in life and the confidence that I could in fact succeed. At TCS I was made to use my intellect and strengthen my analytical skills to arrive at answers rather than focus on mere bookish education. I am grateful to TCS for giving me my self-confidence back and setting me on the right path to success. Since TCS the sky has been the limit and I’ve never had to look back.“

I won’t touch all the amazing qualities spoken about the school already, but among many of these qualities that my school ‘The Cambridge School’ has to offer, I have to emphasize on its endeavour to prepare its students for the real world.
The years spend as a student in this school really helped re-structure the basic traits of my character, something I only realized as time passed by. I wanted to shine bright which then went against my timid, low-confident self. I didn’t know what I needed to adhere to be who I wanted to be, but to my very surprise my teachers did. By exposing me to meaning friendships, helping me think out of the box and teaching me to stand up for myself, I have gradually become ME, who I adore. But Still the question remains, how did they figure it out what one particular student needed amidst all those students? It’s the impeccable student and teacher ratio (1:20) that helped each teacher to minutely nurture each students weakness into strengths. Today I am pursuing my Masters of Public Policy in Canada, living on my own and worked as an intern for the Provincial Government of Canada. The caliber of critical thinking I earned in the school is still helping me in my higher studies.
In this generation of Millennials and advanced technology, Schools having hi-tech lab-rotaries, smart boards aren’t enough. The important of being creative and having the courage to be ingenious Entrepreneurs, is in need than ever before and this school has always walked along with the changes of the society. Need it be in business, science or Drama.
I have classmates who have proven to good actors, dancers, IT specialist, lawyers, Chefs, sportsmen and more. But the one thing we all have in common, is that we have learnt to love ourselves for who we are and believe that we can be anything till we have the confidence to go for it.
These good words aren’t because it’s my school, but because I genuinely feel our new generation needs schools like this that will prepare students to sustain in this fiercely competitive world through, Self-esteem, support and Friendship.
It is a great place to be. It’s cozy, modern, friendly and will teach your children to LEARN how to LEARN all throughout their lives.
TCS is all about a world class education and the best pool of teachers. The school transformed me as a person by instilling self confidence and motivation to face subjects that I dreaded most before I joined this school (MATH).
Today I am a proud student of this school, currently in my penultimate year of post graduation degree in Actuarial Science from Macquarie University (under IFOA, Australia). I’m grateful for the abundant guidance and support that I received throughout my school life from all the teachers!
I choose The Cambridge School over other international schools in Kolkata because of the warm atmosphere within the institution. The school was not my first option, but it was my final choice simply due to the faculty and quality of learning that I was exposed to. I truly believe that I am where I am now thanks to what I learnt here.
