Admission Procedure

Thank you for considering Tashkent International School (TIS) for your child(ren)’s education!

If you have any questions throughout the registration process, please contact our registrar Izabella Ter-Aganova at You are welcome to make an appointment to see the school and discuss your student’s application.

TIS is open to all children who are within the required age range and for whom the school can offer an appropriate education as determined by the interview and admissions process. The school offers support in the area of English for Speakers of Other Languages for grades 1 through 8. Fluent English is required in high school.

The school aims to provide an educational environment that fosters respect for all nationalities and cultures. A structured and challenging education is offered in preschool through grade 12 and culminates with an American high school diploma through the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma examinations.

The admissions office reviews the academic records of all applicants to determine initial grade placement for elementary, middle and high school students. Academic records are essential in the enrollment process. School records must be official copies from the previous school. If records are not in English, they should be translated. The certified translation should be included with the official school records. If no school records are available for elementary students, please request that the previous school supply a letter indicating the year(s) the student attended that school and in what grade(s).

TIS offers an English Language Learning (ELL) program for students who qualify for admittance but have limited language ability. The goal of the program is to integrate students into the regular classroom environment over a two-year period.

High school students are expected to have a higher level of English proficiency than elementary students.

Middle and high school students may be required to take one or more placement tests in various subjects as part of the admissions process. These assessments are designed to assist us in making an accurate placement of each child into our curriculum.

Before admission, a school official will review each applicant’s school records and test results and will conduct an interview before confirming grade placement and/or course scheduling. At least one parent is requested to accompany the student for this meeting. TIS policy states students must be in full-time residence with at least one parent or legal guardian.
