Are students generally challenged appropriately by the curriculum? Please describe any particular strengths or weaknesses in this area. Do you have any thoughts how the curriculum is applied and implemented at this school?
Our kids came from public schools in the US and adjusted well to TIS. It took a bit of time to get used to the IB style grades and report cards, but in terms of the curriculum it was quite comparable. They were challenged, but rarely stressed about school work. Foreign languages might be a bit of a weakness. To native English speakers the options are to pick French, Russian, or Korean. Unfortunately Spanish is not an option. As new kids join every year, I get the impression that it's difficult to really make much progress in those additional languages. - Jul 2020
