The Past
The Home School is amongst the oldest schools in Bangalore, India. Ms. Robinson, a North American missionary, felt Basavanagudi, a locality of Bangalore, and its neighbouring areas required a good school. Her father, Bishop Robinson, had started Baldwins High School, Bangalore. Ms. Robinson had been the Principal there for some years. In 1930, Ms. Robinson alongwith Ms. Donne, a British lady started The Home School.

Ms. Dawn & Ms. Robinson with a few studentsAt that time, the school had only Kindergarten with three or four students and three teachers. Ms. Robinson and Ms. Donne strived to provide education on par with international standards at a very nominal fee. They paid individual attention to each and every student. Within a year, the school had 150 students. A few traditions that were started then are observed till today. These are Christmas Tree, taking children on picnics, morning prayer, scouts and guides and singing with the piano.

The Present
Today, The Home School imparts education from Kindergarten to the seventh standard for boys and girls. The school follows the Karnataka State syllabus with a public examination in the seventh standard. 

The present Principal, Mr. R. Venkatachalam joined the school as a student in 1942. Upon completing his education, he became the Headmaster in 1961 and has been the Principal since 1989. Dedicated to the ideals of Miss Robinson and Miss Donne, he aims to provide excellent education that keeps pace with the changes happening in a technologically advanced world. The Principal takes personal interest in every aspect of the school. His prime concern is the welfare of the children and them growing into successful individuals with well grounded personalities.
