Welcome to The International School
We believe that in our increasingly global environment, the quality of success will be determined by one s ability to understand and communicate with people from different cultures. Therefore, we are proud to acknowledge that our student body consists of children from around the world and American youngsters from surrounding communities. Naturally, this makes for a multicultural, multiethnic environment that looks ahead to the world of tomorrow. English is the official language of the school; however, reflecting the global trend, Chinese, French, German, and Spanish are spoken as well.
Studying a foreign language at an early age provides cognitive benefits to all TIS students. Certainly, scientific research supports the claim that bilingualism increases cognitive development and improves memory skills, including verbal and spatial abilities. Our yearly test results will continue to place more than half of our student body one or more grades above grade level.
In conclusion, students at The International School are provided with the discipline to learn and achieve, the freedom to explore, the creativity of expression, the compassion to understand and improve our global environment.
