On behalf of the elementary community, welcome to Tashkent International School! Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a supportive and academically stimulating environment that develops creativity, critical thinking and communication skills in each of our students.
The elementary curriculum is based on the framework of Units of Inquiry from the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and has been designed specifically for international schools.
We also have a wonderful group of students in preschool through grade 5. All of our students are asked and expected to behave in accordance with the TIS mission at all times, to model the IB Learner Profile attributes, and to Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe in every situation.
• The TIS Mission: At all times, students will be ‘internationally-minded,’ strive to think creatively, solve problems and communicate effectively with others.
• The IB Learner Profile: In all lessons, on the playground, and elsewhere around school, all students will model the attributes described by the IB Learner Profile for students to be Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced and Reflective.
• The IB PYP Attitudes: In order to ensure that students are respectful, responsible and safe, they will be encouraged at all times to show Appreciation, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Creativity, Curiosity, Empathy, Enthusiasm, Independence, Integrity, Respect and Tolerance.
The 2012-2013 school year started with many familiar faces returning and new students arriving. Our new teaching staff includes Monique Vespui in the Early Learning Center, Janelle Glass in kindergarten, Maureen Park in grade 4, Kirsten Moss in grade 5, Jessica Shiffman in ELL, Seth Hendrickson as the elementary technology specialist, and several new teaching assistants. These teachers are a welcome addition to our team of dedicated professional educators who help our children become confident, self-motivated learners.
We are a community school – one in which the involvement of parents is cherished and expected. We offer many opportunities for parents to engage in learning with their children; parent volunteers are always welcome.
If you have any specific questions about the elementary program, please feel free to email me or contact the school office at 291-9670.
