As the new Director for the 21-22 school year, I am pleased to welcome you to The International School of Azerbaijan. My family and I relocated from the United States in July and appreciate the warm welcome we have received from the TISA community.
It did not take long for me to see that TISA is a unique and special place of learning. A quick tour of the campus provides clear evidence of the student centered culture that exists here. From the collaborative student art projects that decorate the hallways to the inquiry based design of the Early Learning Center, the commitment to engage,empower, and inspire one another is clear.
TISA offers a wide range of academic and non-academic experiences designed to help students explore their interests, develop relevant skills, and challenge themselves in a safe and supportive learning environment. TISA provides the full International Baccalaureate curriculum with an emphasis on learning and applying the skills and characteristics within the IB Learner Profile. Our students demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways including design projects, theatre productions, athletic competitions and traditional assessments. TISA students achieve a high level of success on IB exams, earning college credit and gaining acceptance into competitive universities throughout the world.
Our diverse student body representing more than 50 nations—ages 2 to 18—provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn from one another, share different perspectives, and develop a deeper respect and understanding of our global society.
The TISA campus is located in a secured residential complex just twenty minutes from the heart of Baku. In addition to well resourced classrooms, TISA houses a new athletic field and complex to support our high interest in athletic programs and competitions.
Please see our admissions or employment information within our website should you have any specific questions. I also encourage you to visit or speak with our families and colleagues in order to learn more about all TISA has to offer.
