Welcome to the Primary School

Welcome to the primary school section of our website.

Please spend time familiarising yourself with the information you can find here, all of which is designed to inform you about our primary school, its programs and people. As you browse, we hope you will be impressed with what TISA has to offer.

Our Students

Our primary school population exemplifies that of a pure international school; multi-cultural, diverse, engaging, confident and fun loving. The combination of low class sizes, excellent educational resources and a highly capable team, allows us to cater for their needs. Student voice is vital, heard through our student council and seen when students take action based on their learning. Regular assemblies, events and activities build a sense of community and allow us to celebrate and recognise student achievement at all levels of the school. 

Our Staff

We have an experienced, committed and highly effective team of educators. Our collaborative staff, coming from various nationalities, model the attributes of the learner profile. Our careful selection process and highly attractive working environment, ensure we recruit the very best international educators available. 

Our Program

Academic rigour, structured inquiry, differentiated teaching and learning and development of understanding, form the core of our written, taught and assessed curriculum. Study of local and global issues, development of skills, knowledge and understanding and commitment to trans-disciplinary learning, starts to prepare out students for the world in which they will live and for the demands of the IB Middle Years Program. Specialists in the arts, physical education and foreign languages allow students to gain greater perspective, seeing their learning through multiple lenses. Support services, including highly capable EAL and SEN departments and a school counsellor, are on hand to guide students with additional needs, to reach high educational goals. Co-curricular activities, such as school productions, add value and richness to our core curriculum. Sports, artistic and cultural extra-curricular activities finish our program offering. 

Wether you are current, soon to be, or prospective member of our school community, we welcome you to our school.

Hewa Thompson

Assistant Primary Principal

I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of The International School of Azerbaijan (TISA).  Since arriving at TISA I have been impressed by the strong sense of community that already exists and I am excited and privileged to now be a part of this.

At TISA we encourage students to think critically and we view learning as a life-long process. We believe in a balanced education that meets each student’s needs. As such, we undertake to provide the most enriching and stimulating educational programme possible, helping our students develop to their highest potential academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.

My roles are many within the school but first and foremost will be to ensure that TISA continues it’s educational growth and offer a quality education to students in a safe, supportive and vibrant learning environment. An environment that fosters international mindedness, supports active participation in our community while at the same time supporting our students to gain an understanding of the global impact their actions and values can and do have on their lives as well as the lives of others, the environment and the world we live in.

I look forward to working with all new and existing families and my door is always open. Have a great year.
