The Millennium School is an Independent Award Centre for the prestigious and coveted International Youth Award Programme- The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award since 2020. It is the world’s leading youth international achievement award, equipping young people for life and work.

In 2013 the club won the Best School Award for sharing its outstanding practices and in 2014 the school was recognized as the Lead School.
TMS is an environmentally conscious school and empowers its students to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects. It is a platform for our students to reach out to influence and engage their parents and neighborhood communities to promote pro-environmental behavior. Our students are also empowered to explore environmental concepts and actions beyond the confines of a syllabi or curriculum.
With a view to foster a mindset that promotes environmental sustainability, the Environment Club organizes Sustainability Week every year. The entire week was exciting with each day dedicated to an activity, such as, vegetarian day, no car day, paperless day, e-waste day and save power day.
Creating an in- house vertical garden
The spirit of adventure is sparked through field trips, overnight camps and international expeditions. These help our students to plan, take risks and become self-reliant. We also create a culture of adventure within our classrooms, where creativity is nurtured and a culture of innovation is built. Students use their imagination and independent problem solving skills to explore new ways, ideas and innovate. They recognize opportunities, experiment and are willing to take risks. The activities planned by the Innovation Hub across the school creates opportunities for students to participate in intra and interschool events.
The ICE (Innovate- Create –Explore center) in the Primary School & Zone Millennia in the Kindergarten are sparks creativity and innovation.
We empower students to find their voice by building a productive and inclusive school culture. Students have access to a range of structured leadership roles in the school that provide them with opportunities to develop a range of skills, including entrepreneurial skills, communication and decision-making. Our student leaders have collaborated with the management and have been active partners in bringing about school improvement.
