The school produces merit list rankers in the Maharashtra State Secondary Board examinations year after year[citation needed]. The school is part of the Parle Tilak Vidyalaya Association,[3] which runs a number of schools and colleges mainly in Vile Parle, Andheri and Mulund.[9]


The school derives its name from the Indian Freedom Fighter Sri Lokmanya Balgangadhar Tilak (1856–1920). The English medium school was established on 29 June 1982 on a piece of land adjacent to the Parle Tilak Vidyalaya Marathi Medium Secondary School, which had housed the latter's laboratories.[10] The school has four divisions for almost every standard, up from the prior three divisions per standard.[citation needed]


The school uniform for girls is an black coloured dress with white and black biscuit checksand for boys a white colour shirt and dark grey pants (up to the seventh standard) or trousers (standards eight to ten).

The majority of the pupils are Hindus. Morning prayers are also Hindu. Important days like Teacher's Day and Tilak Punyatithi are celebrated in the school with events and intra-school competitions. An Annual Function is held every year in December, at one of the biggest grounds in Vile Parle. The ground has a capacity of 2000 people though only 500 fill up every year. At the Annual Function prizes are given to meritorious students by a chief guest. A Send-Off Party for students who are passing out of the institution is held annually. Volleyball forms an important part of the school culture, and is considered to be the most important sport.[citation needed]. The school sends its cricket team to tournaments.[11]
