Director’s Welcome


August 2013

I am delighted to be joining the Tashkent International School community this year as the new director. My wife, Maria, and our three daughters are also here and we are excited to begin the new school year. Maria will teach one of the grade 3 classes at TIS and our daughters will attend in grades 10, 8 and 5.

On behalf of the whole TIS community, I want to welcome you to Tashkent International School. On August 20 we will begin our 19th school year with a record number of students overall in preschool through grade 12, with a senior class of 28, our largest graduating class.

This year, as in past years, we are seeing our enrollment expand. We currently have 489 students from 43 different countries expected this year. Our faculty is also expanding with 12 new overseas-hired teachers. 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, South Africa and Uzbekistan.

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. You can also visit our page on Facebook at

TIS is an exciting and interesting place for children to grow and learn; with students and professional families from more than 43 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.

Welcome to Tashkent International School.
