Admission for the 2017/2018 Academic year will open on 1 December. Senior students would like to share their views about TIS. WHY TIS?
Amma Mifatu Setorme Gadzekpo – Grade 11 – When I think of TIS, the first thing that comes to mind is family. Boarding school is always a great choice when it comes to secondary schooling because it ensures that your ward will gain a lot of training in taking care of their self and respecting others. The reason I believe TIS is a great place to send your child is because of all the love, care and attention your child will receive once they are in the school. TIS provides a fun and comfortable environment for your ward where student-teacher relations are off the charts and student-student relations are even better! The hostel parents treat all wards just as their own children; they will correct them when needed, guide and comfort them when necessary, and will take overall good care of them. TIS is a great school and the experiences your child will have here will be unforgettable. Besides, where else other than TIS?
Andy Nartey – Grade 11 –The first step in choosing the right school is to determine what type of student your child is and what environment he/she will most likely succeed. As a proud student of TIS, I believe that our school is the best place to bring your child because it provides a good learning environment with unlimited opportunities for its students to excel. TIS directs your child on to a path towards lifelong learning, a prestigious college education and a successful career. TIS doesn’t only stand for Tema International School it also stands for Talented Inspiring Students which reflects our students’ capabilities and creativity which your child can be part of when they step for the first time on TIS soil.
Rhinnah Krobo Edusei (IB 2, Sports Prefect) Tema International School promotes community life and holistic living. Students are not only taught to pass exams, but also encouraged to be concerned members of their respective communities, while in school and in their homes. At TIS, students learn community service and appreciate the need to care for the less privileged. There is a lot of experiential learning that goes on in TIS, as practice is at the center of everything, even in the classrooms. At TIS, we learn by doing, and this makes knowledge more personal and practical. Students are always on the move to initiate projects and implement them through effective collaboration with other students and with the support from staff. Students are also tasked to take ownership of their own development. And this is done through the many student leadership roles on offer.
Sarah King (IB 2) TIS is a home away from home, and the school environment helps students to grow. Students are encouraged to be expressive in diverse ways. TIS has a place for everyone, and it gives students the will to breathe and challenge orthodox thinking. Students’ abilities are pushed and challenged to bring out the best in them. As an IB School, students are constantly asked to embody and exhibit all the IB Learner profiles; to engage in inquiry-led learning through critical thinking, communicate effectively, live by principles and be open-minded. Students are equally asked to care and regularly reflect on their actions. And while taking risks by charting into unknown paths, students are also encouraged to have balance.
