Tianjin International School (TIS) seeks to serve the expatriate community by providing an excellent academic program, a strong fine arts program, and full access to computer technology for each student. Bolstered by a commitment to provide academic programs from a Christian perspective, TIS prepares all students to engage in the global community. The international experience is a priceless opportunity for our students.
Tianjin International School has been accredited with the California-based Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) since 1992. Currently, it is fully accredited through 2010.
The elementary division uses traditional teacher-directed study and learning activities in Bible, language arts, science, social studies, Chinese, math, physical education, art, and music. The program is committed to instructional strategies and academic content that complement the developmental needs of the children. The middle school program balances an academic curriculum with a variety of sports and co-curricular classes for individual interests such as computer applications, fine arts, foreign language, and creative writing. Students also have the opportunity to engage in competitive sports. The high school is college-preparatory in scope and is complemented by a range of Advanced Placement and honors courses. The guidance department offers assistance to students in college and career planning. Students have access to a wide range of extra-curricular activities in sports, music, and student government.
The faculty at Tianjin International School is committed to invest in students' lives. The commitment to teach brings knowledge, wisdom, focus, and life to the TIS campus. Members of the faculty are involved with the ideas and concerns of students while serving as instructors, mentors, coaches, academic advisors, club sponsors, and caring community group leaders. They are also professionals: all core curriculum teachers hold a bachelor's or master s degree in their respective fields.
