Theodore International School (also known as TIS) upholds a value that education nurtures the development of the whole person – spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional. The school believes that education is a collaboration of the school, family, church and community which prepares an individual to become a good citizen.
The school follows a vision to become a globally recognised international learning institution which provides the highest quality of education, inspiring and challenging young minds to reflect God’s love in their character. This helps children to be independent lifelong learners and achieve their full potential to honour God and to serve the community with respect and understanding of cultural differences.
The TIS education philosophy upholds that firstly, their standard of education should support and encourage the development of the whole child from the physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, as well as the social aspects. Furthermore, TIS believes that a true learning experience is an ongoing collaborative effort between the school, the family, the church, and the community- in order to mould individuals who will be good citizens of the world, both now and in the future.
The Theodore International School education system offers an early childhood programme for children aged 2 to 6 years old. It is based on the international accredited Kindergarten Stepping Stones and uses Montessori materials to give the child a hands-on learning experience.
The school follows the International American curriculum for elementary students. This curriculum focuses on the balanced development of the whole child while also striving to meet individual needs. All teachers involved are of high calibre with degrees and certifications in teaching, equipped to provide professional and spiritual care for their charges.
Aside from that, the school also provides age-appropriate music programmes for children to express themselves. Children are encouraged to have a healthy, fit and active lifestyle through sports, swimming classes, and fitness regiments.
