TIS has a fantastic athletics program that grows our students in the knowledge of the sport and teaches them how to compete at their highest levels. TIS offers middle school and high school basketball, volleyball and soccer to all qualifying students. Our elementary students participate in friendly exchanges including: soccer, cross-country, badminton, chess, and ping pong. Our well-guided sports programs provide opportunities for young men and women to gain important life skills by teaching them the value of good sportsmanship, teamwork, commitment, hard work and the importance of physical activity to support a healthy lifestyle. Parent support and participation is always welcomed as a vital part of student development.
