General Announcements

Welcome Back from the Head of School

Hello, my name is Mr. Ryan Witt and I am the Head of School for TIS. I am honored to have the privilege of welcoming you to Tianjin International School. For over thirty years our school’s doors have been open to foreign passport holders living in this wonderful city and inviting them to participate in a well-rounded, high-quality educational program. The encouraging and diverse atmosphere of our school provides children a unique environment to gain cultural enrichment and age appropriate development. From our Foundations Class to our High school, there are moments at every turn for students to discover something new, to grow in their abilities, and to encounter a life-changing experience. I am confident that whether your child is three years old, finishing high school, new to international schools, or a long-time attendee, you and your family will feel right at home in our school. The education is rigorous, but the opportunities and experiences at our school are incredibly rich and give the students that start here the ability to go anywhere. This is going to be a great year, and I am excited to get share it with you all. Let’s make this year the best one yet!

All-School Open House

All parents are invited to attend TIS’ Open House for the 2019-2020 school year. Join us here at TIS on August 23 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. to get to learn more about our amazing staff and what our school will be offering to our students, this year. This is a great chance to get to meet your child’s teachers and hear from them exactly what your child will be learning this year. We expect this to be a great evening and we hope to see many parents!

Renewing Vehicle Entry Pass

Returning students who have a vehicle entry pass from last year will need to renew it for the 2019-20 school year. Please email Mrs. Trancy Li, Assistant to the Head of School, at trancy.li@tiseagles.com with your student's information (name, grade level, and License Plate Number) to receive a new pass. She will inform you once the new pass can be picked up. Please bring your last year's pass with you to exchange for the new one, and If you have not been submitted a copy of your driving license, please remember to take it with you when you come to school to exchange for your new pass (or, you can bring the original driving license, and Mrs. Li can make a copy at school).
