Our History


Tianjin International School is the 2nd oldest international school in China and the oldest in Tianjin. TIS was founded in 1986 and initially had only 30 students, 6 full-time teachers, and several part-time teachers.


In January of 2012, TIS opened its doors to our current campus, in the Hexi district of Tianjin. With over 35 years of excellence in Tianjin, our school now serves over 300 students, with over 45 foreign teachers, and contains many facilities that increase the richness of the student experience.




Learning with Purpose

Our American based education from 3-years old to 12th Grade has enabled students to enter the most competitive universities around the world.


We Learn, Love and Lead

We take a holistic approach to teaching. Character Education is an important part of who we are and who we want our students to be.


Hands-On Learning Outside the Classroom

With over 30 different clubs and co-curricular activities to choose from, our students can pursue their interests and learn new things outside the classroom.


TIS is committed to providing transformative, holistic K-12 education to develop globally-minded individuals who learn, love, and lead.

Start Here, Go Anywhere

TIS is a great place to be, but you don't have to just take our word for it.

SiHoo Lee : Class of 2019

Throughout my high school years, I could push myself to the limits in various areas because TIS always provided its students with so many opportunities. All the lessons and experiences from TIS will be treasured, and I know that these will serve me well into my future.
