Experiencing Our Culture
Discovery With Action….That’s how we grow
Positive. Productive. Progressive. That's how we navigate change.
The Virtual Era is dawning. Memories are taking back us to many mile stones and turning points in the past; graduation from preschool to high school, introduction of sms system, witty times, e-campus, website, our various events, affiliation with CIE, membership with CIS, first batch appearing Checkpoint, first batch clearing IGCSE with flying colours etc.
Education industry is also on the threshold of a complete makeover. Traditional learning methodologies are been replaced by digital methodologies. With a small primitive set up, the school grew by leaps and bounds in the past 13 years with more than 1600 children on roll today.
The education needs of children are fast changing. To keep ourselves upbeat with the latest technological advancements in the field of education and with an intention to provide the best to our students, we are now expanding our operations with Witty International School & Witty kids.
Our purpose as an organization has always been clear — to be on the Top of the World which enables people everywhere to grow and thrive. That single-minded focus means that our business is free to transform and adapt to the needs of the world at large.
There’s always more numbers to look at, more data to examine. Here at WITTY, though, we focus more on the people part of business. We care about the lives of our stake holders and our team members, whose contributions keep us at the forefront in the field of education.
Vision. Drive. Philosophy. That's where we started.
For nearly 13 years, WITTY has been on an incredible journey, experiencing positive growth. Through it all, it's our people — customers, business partners and team members — who keep us moving through the rapidly evolving world of Education.

Our Managing Director Dr. Vinay Jain says at it best
We are journeying through a time when education is most important. In a country such as ours which reveres knowledge, "To know is everything". However, mere knowledge is not the key to success. With it should develop 'character', the basic foundation for life ahead. We seek to do just that at Witty International School.
There is no short cut to success, we believe. Here at Witty International School, we insist in promoting consistent, hard work...the basis for creating a deeper character, that would pave the way to succeed in life. However, to help your progress on the way uphill would be our specially trained teachers, structured curriculum, unbeatable infrastructure, that would provide you the impetus to get you past the rigors of the existing competitive climes in the educational scenario. Which is also why we inculcate the green culture and the green values, coupled with specially constructed infrastructure they would provide the ambient environment for you to flower not just academically but also personality wise...?
Remember, values like dedication, perseverance, planning, are irreplaceable in life. Academic excellence and skills apart, we profess a winning attitude, an entirely different outlook towards life , here at Witty International School. To excel, but without undue pressure, by following a systematic, consistent approach...
So, onwards and ahead, let us strike while the iron is hot... We have the tools here let us strike right hard strong together let us make the futures bright, and in keeping with our ambitions.
