Tehran International School aims to foster an environment of respect for universal rights, diverse viewpoints and cultural uniqueness of all people. It intends to raise 21-century citizens equipped with necessary skills to build a peaceful world.
The school promotes social awareness, thoughtful interactions, and effective communication amongst its students, parents, teachers and staff. Moreover, the school program attempts to develop students with passion for learning and education.
Through international education and rigorous assessment, the school seeks to create an atmosphere where academic knowledge and intellectual enquiry is as much valued as hard work, team work and social activities and morale.
May God help us accomplish our missions!
TIS Discipline Guidelines
We believe that:
• It is the school's responsibility to provide a positive climate for learning.
• Discipline is an essential part of education.
• Students have rights and responsibilities.
• School rules should be established and understood by parents, teachers and students.
• Discipline, as well as learning, is individualized.
• Parents should be deeply involved in the discipline of their daughters.
• Parents, teachers, and administrators should help students work towards self-discipline, self-control, and self-responsibility.
At TIS, we strive to maintain a wholesome and comfortable environment in which students are able to maximize on their talents and potential. In order to do that, we have set up some rules, regulations, and expectations that will help them better concentrate their efforts on schoolwork.
In order to avoid any disciplinary action or deduction of points from the conduct grade, students, both new and current, are expected to abide by the following instructions. Parents are encouraged to take part in this process by keeping in touch with the administrators in order to avoid any surprises.
