'Family is the cornerstone of our school.'
We believe that there is no such thing as an unsuccessful student. Our programme is based on this philosophy. We endeavour to develop not only the confidence and skills of our children, but to help them realize their maximum potential through balanced personal and interpersonal development. The positive environment is reinforced by the limited presence of externally imposed discipline - students are not punished, and bells are not rung. We focus on facilitating the knowledge, as well as the behaviour, attitudes and skills that will help our children become successful adults, whatever challenges they choose to undertake in the future.
We are committed to the responsibility and privilege of educating and nurturing inquirers and critical thinkers. Our goal is to become internationally recognised for our active participation in enriching the qualities of our countries' human resource, and thereby improving the world we live in, and the cultural patrimony of future generations.
Towards this end we energetically pursue a course of study that holds the essential elements of the PYP (Action, Attitudes, Concepts, Knowledge and Skills) at its heart, and not only for our students. We embrace the continuing education of our parents as well by offering them a range of studies, and symposiums designed to stimulate and continue their personal development. We regularly reach out to our alumni and encourage them to maintain contact as role models and examples. Throughout the year our students participate in charity and fundraising events to support communities both locally and nationally.
The TAS School family; our parents, teachers, students, and support staff look forward to the challenges of the future. We embrace the diversity of our community and plan for our successes carefully and consciously.
