The International School Bangalore (TISB) is a private educational institution located on Sarjapura Varthur road in Bangalore, India. It was founded in 2001 by Dr. K. P. Gopalkrishna, and is a sister school to the National Public Schools, Bangalore. Students of TISB take the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations at the end of the 10th grade, followed by a two-year International Baccalaureate diploma.

In 2009, the Good Schools Guide, a publication that surveys independent international schools in the UK and abroad, placed TISB amongst the top schools in the Bangalore north part.[1] In 2013, EducationWorld Magazine conducted a survey of 5,779 respondents including parents, teachers, principals and other educationists, and found that TISB was the best in the country.

The school is noted for having adopted the curriculum's of various countries: Grade 9 and 10 pass out through the rigorous IGCSE Curriculum, while grades 11 and 12 complete the 2 year course in the IB Diploma.

The school has gained prestige within the country for consistently scoring student placements in elite universities abroad, particularly in the United States and UK. Several students each year graduate to enroll in top colleges such as Stanford University, University of Cambridge, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

TISB is famed for its annual student-run cultural and academic fest, Vivum.
