Welcome to TCIS
A heartfelt welcome to TCIS and its community. TCIS ia an international school that uses an American curriculum (taught by qualified western international teachers) where we emphasize language skills as a key to a good education that will prepare students for a globalized future in the highest caliber colleges and universities in the world. Our rigorous curriculum and inspiring staff help students become 21st century learners and college and future ready.
While building a better tomorrow today, we nurture children in an environment that is conducive to learning with very good facilities. The curriculum focuses on the importance of literacy in all areas whether that is a pure language or numeracy or technical language of computer coding. Our students annually excel and win awards in arts, academics and athletics. TCIS students have been awarded top honors in Thai language and culture, Chinese language acquisition and international speech competitions. Our graduates are admitted to top universities in North America, Europe and Asia.
The school board and school administration have worked closely in developing a strategic plan that will map out the next five years at TCIS.

To complement the academic program, our buildings house three gymnasiums, a state of the art theater/concert hall, multiple technology centers, and an extensive library (20,000+ titles) and resource center. All or our buildings and our classrooms are air-conditioned, with wireless access supporting our state-of-the-art technologies.
