Director’s Welcome


August 2014

On behalf of the whole TIS community, I want to welcome you to Tashkent International School. On August 19, we will begin our 20th year as an international school with around 500 students overall in preschool through grade 12.  This year, we have a senior class of 43, our largest graduating class ever.  It is worthy to note that TIS is the only school in Uzbekistan authorized to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes (Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme).

Like our student population, our highly qualified faculty is also diverse, with 75 TIS teachers coming from more than 15 different countries. The diverse faculty at TIS ensures that the level of education we provide continues to be excellent and is constantly reevaluated and improved. Like all international schools, our experienced faculty comes from places around the world, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Spain, India, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, Azerbaijan, Poland, Portugal and Uzbekistan.

We continue to improve the facilities at Tashkent International School with a focus on excellent outside play spaces while optimizing the student-learning environment on our five hectare park-like campus. Our just-completed purpose-built Art and Design Building will enhance our secondary visual arts and design technology programs. A new elementary building is under construction with an anticipated completion date of late 2015.

I urge you to look through our website for more information about our school and our student body. You will find links to our Parent Teacher Association, after-school activities, curriculum overviews for all three IB programmes, and great photos in our photo gallery through Flickr.

TIS is an exciting and interesting place for children to grow and learn; with students and professional families from more than 40 different nations, it makes for a very diverse and multicultural community. Small class sizes, good facilities, supportive parents and motivated students help create a positive learning environment in the classroom – a place where students can achieve their potential through an international-minded approach to education.

Welcome to Tashkent International School.
