NEASC, CIS and IB have been conducting extensive evaluations through their accreditation and authorization processes at TIS for the past eight years, while additional organizations support TIS to ensure we have a high level of professional development for our staff and community.read more
Keeping up with Digital Natives
Today’s digital natives need today’s digital tools to ensure a brighter tomorrow. At TIS, we regularly update our digital tools to ensure our students have what they need to digital author their progress, summarize what they have learnt and are able to seamlessly collaborate with others.
We are an Apple school with each grade having their own lab. Also, each student in our middle school receives their own laptop while studying at TIS. We weave design into the various learning process while using our digital tools. This is most obvious in our design technology lab.
True Role Model
TIS has been a 21st Century Model School from its inception in 1997. We have many educators, government officials and business leaders who visit us each year to learn more about what is important to prepare today’s children for tomorrow.
Last year we completed the documentary film “21:21″ in 10 countries throughout the world. 21:21 focuses on aligning 21st Century learning with 21st Century learners. We will start screening 21:21 in various locations around the world to share with a mass audience how they can move learning forward in schools and at home.
