Our primary school is a Montessori inspired education. Our elementary and secondary school is a mix of project-based learning, traditional French standards and interdisciplinary work.
Our secondary classes follow the national education programme and allow time and instruction for the baccalaureate exams. Tahiti International School is accredited by the Ministry of National Education.
We follow the polynesian academic calendar except for the April holidays.
School starts mid-August and ends late June.
We are on holiday for 1 month for Christmas from mid-December.
The school operates on a quarterly calendar, you can see the pdf for more details.
The first international school in Polynesia, Tahiti International School (TIS) provides instruction mainly in French in all classes, from the small section of kindergarten.
The goal is to become a member school of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).
The general subjects taught at TIS are taught in French but some of them (and not the least!) are also taught in English.
Mandarin and Spanish classes complete the linguistic approach of our students. The future belongs to them. Our educational policy, the material implemented and the teaching philosophy are oriented in this direction. TIS students will therefore have all the assets to integrate French, American, New Zealand, Australian, English, Canadian and Spanish-speaking universities, thanks to the Spanish taught as a third language possible from the 1st grade.
The philosophy of the school is to stimulate the desire to learn. The teaching methods used by bilingual or anglophone teachers allow each child to flourish, to develop his taste for discovery while respecting humanistic values. Enlightened and curious, students acquire all the skills and qualities they will need in their future adult life.
While waiting to be authorized to teach the IB program by becoming a member institution, the TIS International School offers educational content based on that of the National Curriculum for England and Wales.
The teaching of French is also scrupulously followed with courses in literature and the production of writings. All subjects "traditionally" taught in French schools, such as grammar, conjugation and spelling, are also deepened.
Thanks to this comprehensive and international educational program, all TIS students can, as soon as they wish, resume the curriculum of their original education system or integrate the one of their choice.
French - English (6th included), options in supplement.
TIS also offers optional courses in Spanish and Mandarin. But also drums, piano and French Sign Language.
