Welcome to VIS (Vellore International School) in Chennai. Our school takes an immense pleasure in greeting the students in joining the VIS family. Currently, we are doing admissions for 5th to 9th grade students only, but we are looking forward to expanding our base to the senior classes within a short span of time.

We understand that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you’ll ever make in life. Therefore, we encourage you to schedule a tour to our school and discover what makes us unique and how will it ensure a successful transition for your child from another school (city).

– VIS organizes both virtual and on-campus tours, to help you discover about our curriculum and outstanding facilities.

Admission of children to VIS Chennai will be based on a clear set of guidelines, with the intention of ensuring that each child who is admitted is placed in an environment where they will flourish. We always follow the latest Government advice and protocol regarding student’s welfare and safety.
