|Qualities and characteristics best defining the school||
A school that encourages discovering rather than demonstrating, and commitment rather than commandment, Tanarata International Schools (TiS) is set up to create a schooling community meaningful and relevant to you and your child.
TIS is where children become knowledge empowered self-confident individuals. Not only are they “well grounded” and morally strong, and capable of personal achievement, they are also active contributors to the community at large. The school’s name is derived from the Malay words “tanah rata” (or flat land) - and symbolizes the provision of a ‘blank and level playing field’ on which the future of many students of the school will be written.
|Teaching approach of the school||
TIS promotes academic excellence through a comprehensive program that is developmentally appropriate and supportive of student growth. The learning approach is tuned to fit your child’s needs, abilities, pace, and growth rate. Teachers use creative strategies in motivating students by illustrating the rewards and value-satisfactions that are relevant to your child.
Students learn from each other and from being engaged by stellar teachers. Students learn best when they are doing. At TIS, students become scientists, mathematicians, historians, and writers in the classroom. Growth often takes place through project-based learning, in which students acquire knowledge and master skills, applying both to challenging long-term tasks. When children love their education they become life-long learners.
