The TonsBridge started its first academic session on 1st April 2013 as Shemford Doon and in a very short span of time, has carved a niche for itself as one of the eminent schools of Dehradun. The School has created a benchmark in the field of senior secondary education by adopting the latest technology and tools to impart education through unique smart class system. The school is child-focused, aesthetically designed and adaptive with a view to promote learning, support collaboration and provide a personalized and stimulating environment to all.
At The TonsBridge, far from the distractions and cacophony of the city, students are presented with an opportunity to learn from nature, the greatest teacher of all. It is situated in the lush green and a natural environ 18 Acre campus, at the confluence of the river Tons and the river Nemi in the Doon Valley. The School aims at providing holistic education to prepare its children for the challenges in life.
The school was set up under the aegis of the Doon Modern Education Society, whose motto is Vidya Amritam Ashnute (True Knowledge Liberates).
The TonsBridge vision is to prepare useful, committed, empowered and enlightened citizens who can contribute meaningfully to the growth of our nation. We envision our students having well-rounded personalities and being articulate individuals who are physically and mentally fit to face the challenges of the world. Our goal is to provide high-quality education that will help our students to be ready to scale new heights and explore new vistas in life. We strive to equip our students with a strong character, self-discipline, and sound moral values.
To achieve this, the School lays equal emphasis on academics as well as sports and extra-curricular activities. The school visualizes an educational system based on instilling cardinal values, pursuit of excellence in all things and service to humanity. Thus, as the students step out of the sacrosanct precincts of their alma mater, they are armed with faith in themselves, belief in goodness and righteousness, fortitude to face the buffeting winds of change and a desire to serve humanity.
