Tuition and Fees

DearParents,TheBoard and management of TIS has been undertaking extensive market research into the international school market in Wuxi.This has also included looking into fees structures at the various international schools. It is with the needs of parents in mind that we are pleased to announce that starting from the new school year 2016-2017 TIS is introducing its new reduced fee structure. We are fortunate to be able to offer this new fee structure due to the support of our new investment partner, Jinnan Education Investment Co. Ltd, and you can be assured that the quality of educational services, teaching and facilities at TIS will in no way be reduced. In fact, our new development plans include upgrading our current facilities and expanding our campus. So you will be receiving even better quality educational services at much better value.
Also,we are happy to announce that new buses will be purchased that meet Ministry requirements. These buses will ensure that quality service is provided to our school community.
Invoices will be going home this week with the reduced tuition. We would appreciate your support by communicating this reduction to your circle of friends and help us recruit new families to TIS!
