Re: School improvements
First, as we complete this school year, we want to thank you for being part of our school family!
"You" make "TCIS the Best International School in Thailand", when we compare academics and tuition!
While this school year has been very successful, with great achievements by students, we are always looking to get better.
Over the next few weeks you will receive several survey requests seeking your input.
On behalf of Mr. Suhat, Mr. WeiPien and our board, we really value your input.
Thank you, in advance for your cooperation!
1. Review to change the name
2. Evaluation of HOS and Board with the strategic plan
3. LS/ MS/ HS improvement plans
Again, thank you for all that you do to make TCIS a special place for "teaching and learning"!
To: TCIS stakeholders
I am proud to report that TCIS has benefitted from a very successful WASC review of the improvements at TCIS from 2014 to 2017.
The WASC mid-cycle review was completed March 14 and we have a positive report!
We have earned our full accreditation until 2020!
The commendations are numerous as the team expressed great satisfaction at seeing the improvements to address the 2014 probation report.
I want to thank our Board, parents, students, teachers, administration and staff for the hard work during the last 3 years.
You are super!
Dr John and the admin team are already addressing the few new recommendations identified by WASC.
With strong leadership, the future for TCIS is quite positive!
To: TCIS Community,
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is an important partner with TCIS. Accreditation ensures TCIS coursework is honored by universities and schools around the world. Our current accreditation is good until 2020. From March 12 to March 14 of this year, TCIS will host our mid cycle evaluation review. Attached are two summary reports that identify the recommendations made by WASC in March 2014 and March 2016 to continue improvements at TCIS. With the support of the Board and our Parent Association and Faculty Association. the administration has guided improvements to address recommendations.
With the continuing success of our student's achievements and hard work of the faculty and staff. I am pleased to report that we expect another positive review from our W ASC evaluation team.
TCIS is the Best International School in Thailand, when you compare academics and tuition!
On behalf of Mr. Suhat and our Board, thank you for your ongoing support ofTCIS! TCIS is committed to providing the best teaching and learning program possible!
