Tsukuba International School is presently accepting applications for September entry. If you have elementary school age children in need of an international education in the English language, please do consider enrolling your child in TIS. The educational experience and individual attention children receive at our at school is unparalleled.
TIS has successfully finished its 12th year of operation. We're sorry to see a long-time teacher, Richard Keeling, leave us to go to a new position in China, but we are happy to announce that we've found an able replacement in Christine Bzdel, who will be arriving this summer from Canada. Christine has taught in Japan before and became acquainted with our very own Shaney Crawford while they were both living in Fukushima. Shaney is the one who made the connection for us, and so it will be a kind of reunion for them. Christine brings a great deal of experience and creativity to this position, so we are all looking forward to her arrival in August.
TIS was founded in 1992 in response to the need for an English-based educational opportunity for English-speaking students in the Tsukuba area. The primary objectives of TIS are: to provide an English-based education, to provide a well-planned curriculum of an international nature designed to encourage higher thinking and sequential learning, to provide a sound academic environment, to provide a safe and caring atmosphere, and to instill within students a sense of responsibility as a citizen of the world.
