Note 1: The Diploma Programme is a two-year programme that starts at the beginning of Grade 11 and finishes at the end of Grade 12. It is, therefore, very difficult for students to join our school as new students after the start of Grade 11. Also, since students need to make many important decisions about their courses before starting the Diploma Programme in Grade 11, it is better for students to already be at our school in Grade 10 so we can advise them on their choices.

Note 2: The TIS Admissions Office is CLOSED in July and August. No new applications can be processed, and no interviews can be held during this time. If you would like to join our school, please plan to apply well in advance of the summer.
