Services
World Languages
TIS also offers World Language courses in Mandarin, French and German. These are both mother tongue and additional language learners. All students must take Mandarin 4 times a week but also take the option of French or German 3 times a week. Mother tongue Koreans can take Korean 3 times a week.
English Language Learners (ELL)
We also offer an English Language Learner (ELL) program since many of our students are English language learners. This is an inclusive program where an ELL teacher is in for half a day from P1-P5 to assist students with their English language development. These teachers co-plan and co-teach with the classroom teacher to provide differentiated learning opportunities for our students. If a child is admitted to TIS with no English then he/she may be pulled out of Mandarin for a few months for intensive English lessons. TIS uses the WIDA test to identify ELL levels for PYP students. For MYP students the WIDA test is administered to identify placement into our Language Acquisition program. ELL students also receive some push-in support as well.
SAT
TIS is a SAT test center for international students. MYP 4- DP 1 students have the option to take the SAT for admissions to American universities.
