Teda International School provides a world-class education that caters to educating the whole student. Our highly trained and qualified teachers work hard to deliver a program both inside and outside the classroom that prepares students for the world beyond high school.
High school students at TIS have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities in the areas of athletics, service, leadership, academics, and personal interest. Students participating in the extracurricular program have the opportunity to participate in learning activities that are difficult to replicate in the classroom. In addition, they have the opportunity to expand their network of friends by engaging with students who may share similar interests but come from various grade levels.
Students in Grades 9 through 12 take four core academic subjects. These include Math, Science, Language, and Social Studies. They may also choose from a number of elective offerings in the areas of visual arts, performing arts, technology, foreign language, and/or athletics. In addition, high school students may opt for Advanced Placement (AP) coursework. AP courses are university level courses that prepare students for an end-of-year exam. Students performing well on the end-of-year exam may earn university credit thus reducing the time of study required to earn a university diploma (not necessarily reduce the time of study, but the number of credits required).
As students progress through the secondary grade levels, they will be given the opportunity to take greater ownership for their learning. Many teachers may begin to provide more choice so that students are free to pursue their interests and have more opportunity to explore topics at greater depth. Teachers may also be looking to guide a student’s program of study in such a way where his/her learning strengths can be mobilized in a positive way.
The high school program is focused on preparing students to enter and find success at the university level and therefore emphasizes skills in the areas of critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, research, and technology. In its short history, Teda International School has helped its graduates enter some of the most prestigious universities in the world.
