The Naming of our School

On May 2nd, 2006, our school was awarded the name of "Tagore - Gymnasium". Rabindranath Tagore was born on May 7th, 1861, as the youngest of 14 children of a respectable Brahmin family in Calcutta. On August 7th, 1941, he passed away in his hometown.   He is regarded as the greatest Indian writer of modern times. In 1913 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. Tagore’s universal genius has often been compared with Goethe. He was not only a poet, storyteller and dramatist; he also composed music, painted and worked as an educator, social reformer and philosopher.   In 1901 he established a school at Shantiniketan, in West Bengal, which was expanded and became the most famous university of India, the Visva-Bharati University. This school is one of our partner schools.
