Admissions Procedure

Welcome to TAISM! We are very pleased that you are interested in joining our community of learners. To help ensure that we meet the needs of every student we admit, the following procedures have been established: 

Application Procedure 

All applicants to TAISM must complete the online application forms. Once the following is complete, the application will be considered:

  1. Online Application for Admission - completed and digitally signed by parent or guardian, with one photograph of the student uploaded as part of online application.
  2. Application fee - A non-refundable fee of RO 75/- (Seventy-Five Omani Rials)*
  3. A copy of the student’s  and parents’ passports (photo page) - uploaded as part of online application.
  4. Confidential School Report/Release of School Records - Printed and signed by parent, and completed and sent directly to TAISM by the current/previous school.
  5. Official school records for at least the past two years, (records of grades 9 - 11 in case of a grade 12 applicant), must be forwarded directly to TAISM by the student’s current/previous school. In a case where the records are not in English, an official English translation must also be submitted. Applicants can provide an unofficial copy of school records, which may expedite the application process. However, an official copy must be received from the previous school in order to finalize the admissions and registration process.

Review Process 

After receipt of all completed admissions documents, the Admissions Committee will review the application and make an admissions decision. 

All middle school and high school applicants are evaluated to determine their level of mathematics ability. Along with past grades, a test is used to determine correct placement in the appropriate mathematics class. Another integral part of the review process is an assessment of the applicant’s English language abilities. An essay, written by the applicant helps in determining the student’s level of ability in language arts and in English language usage. 

Applicants and parents may be asked to meet with a counselor and/or Principal to share more information about the applicant’s ability to benefit from the curriculum at TAISM
