Tirana International School (Albania)


Tirana International School (TIS) is accredited through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA), an American accreditation board that works with American and International Schools. In addition, we are affiliated with the U.S. Department of State and the Advanced Placement’s College Board. Our daily studies include English (reading, grammar, composition, and spelling), Mathematics, Science, Cultural Studies, Art, Music, and Physical Education. Intensive English classes are offered to students who need additional help with English. Computer use is integrated across the curriculum. Additional language acquisition is offered in French, Spanish, German and Russian. The school seeks to provide students with an appreciation for the rich culture and history of Albania. The entire curriculum can be accessed on the QSI curriculum site.Tirana International School has a strong belief that all of our students can succeed, and we work tirelessly to help them achieve that success in their personal, physical, and social lives.The academic program challenges every student to achieve excellence, from the early years through Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school. This model ensures mastery of specific skills and knowledge involving both individual and group instruction. The educational philosophy is founded upon the premise that 1) all students can succeed, 2) success breeds success, and 3) it is the responsibility of the school to provide the conditions for success through a combination of challenge and support.Tirana International School believes it is better to engage in the study of the basics of education and gain mastery rather than cover large amounts of information superficially without mastery. This happens by hearing, seeing, and experiencing in learning situations, followed by practice and repeated exposure. Some of the ways this happens are through dialogue, questioning, experimentation, risk-taking, and group activities. In the end, our students engage in understanding “how to learn” as opposed to only rote memorization of facts.
