Just as a master artist intricately combines music, movement, and expression into a dance, schools must combine curriculum, facilities, programs and opportunities in a masterful way to create the most effective learning environment possible.
We are pleased to be able to offer the Alberta, Canada provincial curriculum at all grade levels as the cornerstone of our successful program. As an Alberta accredited offshore school, TIS must meet rigorous requirements in order to offer this world-class curriculum.
In addition to our regular curriculum, all students in grades 3-11 take part in the Canadian Achievement Test (CAT). The CAT test is a standardized test that measures students’ basic reading, writing and mathematical skills. When compared to the average Canadian results, our students surpass the norm in all three areas.
Our grade 12 students are required to write standardized exams for their diploma courses which account for 30% of the final grade in any given course. This blended mark of classwork and exam results is reported on the transcript as soon as results are ready. When compared to provincial results, TIS students perform better than the norm.
