TIS' vision is to bring a meaningful, comprehensive contemporary education to all students, regardless of personal circumstance, to motivate them to learn and be actively engaged in our school community. It is our vision that with this foundation, children will grow into adults with the hearts, minds, and hands to build a better world.
Preparing our students
We strive to prepare children to understand and live in their communities and the world by giving them:
The ability to manage differences, complexity, and ambiguity
The ability to embrace different cultural perspectives
The ability to communicate, negotiate, and work across cultures
The ability to speak a foreign language fluently
The ability to understand and build community
The ability to understand the world through multi-faceted prisms: the arts, humanities, social sciences, religions, natural sciences, mathematics, technology, communications, and languages
