Prepare for the Future
The High School curriculum at TAISM follows the standards set by the U.S. Department of State’s American Education Reaches Out (AERO) program. Our classes and graduation requirements adhere to these standards to ensure students get the full benefit of an American education.
In addition to our strict curriculum guidelines, we believe that learning extends beyond a traditional classroom setting. TAISM’s co-curricular program, comprised of sports, clubs, and interest groups, supports the holistic development and well-being of your teenager and gives them the opportunity to express themselves and develop their interests as they progress towards graduation.
For students who want to earn college credit while in high school, TAISM offers an Advanced Placement (AP) program. These courses help students prepare to take AP exams (regulated by the College Board) in May.
It is our mission to ensure every TAISM graduate is prepared for university and life beyond the classroom. We cultivate a lifelong love of learning, discovery, and balance, and are always elated to hear stories of our TAISM Eagles soaring into adult life.
High School Courses
TAISM’s academic program is organized on a rotating block schedule with four 80-minute classes each day. Courses are taught in English with an average of 14 students in each class. Most classes are year-long with 0.5 credit being granted each semester. Students can enroll in a maximum of eight classes and earn a maximum of 4.0 credits each semester.
We also offer more than a dozen Advanced Placement (AP) courses for students who wish to get a jumpstart on earning college credits while still in high school.

Visual and Performing Arts
TAISM can rightly be seen as an example that other new schools could, and should, study. Facilities, policies, procedures, and curricula have been constructed, developed and revised. Visionary thinking exudes from every corner of the building.
