Welcome back for the 2014-2015 school year!
During this school year we will celebrate the 20th year anniversary for TCIS, as well as many wonderful
achievements to be earned by our faculty and students.
Our success is dependent on a strong partnership between the Board, parents, faculty and staff and
students. When all partner to seek excellence, without accepting excuses, then great achievements will
The TCIS Foundation Board deserves much applause for the creation and growth of TCIS!
What a wonderful school for teaching and learning.
“TCIS is among the BEST international schools in Thailand”!
When you consider student achievement, academic course offerings, and the value for tuition, TCIS may
be the BEST bargain in Thailand.
Yet, our measure for success should not be limited to Bangkok , or even Thailand. Our goal is to be
among the best schools in Asia and the world.
Already, TCIS offers the same academic courses found in the top schools around the world.
Consider our strengths:
----Three languages of instruction: English, Chinese and Thai
----High school Advanced Placement program with worldwide acceptance
----Middle school academic acceleration equal to top schools worldwide
----Lower school differentiation for instruction
----Language Academy for students requiring immersion for English language acquisition
----Technology utilization and recognition as a “Google” school
TCIS is among the best schools worldwide!.....and the Board, faculty and staff are working to get better.Now for a campus update:
There will be one daily schedule change as a result of parent and faculty input.
There will be separate lunch periods for LS, MS and HS.
No longer will MS and LS students share the campus during the lunch break!
No longer will HS classes be disrupted in the middle of the 3rd block.
When our doors open August 6, 2014, to begin the school year, TCIS will be ready to challenge each
student to meet their individual needs.
I encourage each of you to visit our campus often, making TCIS your second home.
You will be amazed at the quality of teaching and learning happening each day!
I look forward to greeting you each morning as you arrive!
