"What sculpture is to a block of marble education is to the human soul."
Education is truly the soul of a society as it is passed on from one generation to another. It is for us educationists to ensure that this inheritance is one that is not constrained by the intellectual and emotional limitations. We, at The Tribhuvan School,are committed to providing a comprehensive, holistic education to develop the students into academically proficient, morally upright and socially well-integrated individuals.
The compelling challenge of the contemporary education system is to balance the pursuit of success on the one hand, and morality and prudence on the other. These are the two bases on which education should be constructed.
