About the TISA PTA
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a group of parents, guardians, teachers and support staff who work together to aid TISA’s mission to engageempower, and inspire the students and greater TISA community.
The PTA works closely with TISA to build a partnership between our families and our school. We believe that together we can help our children and the TISA community be successful.
The PTA helps to:
  • Support TISA students and families
  • Host student and family events throughout the year.
  • Raise much needed funds for local charitable initiatives through the Parent Action Network (PAN).
  • Arrange teacher and staff appreciation 
Whether you are new to the school or you have been here for a while, the PTA is so glad to have you as part of our wonderful TISA Community.

The Community Resource List contains useful businesses in Baku that have been recommended and shared by our wonderful TISA community. It includes suggestions for shopping, services, restaurants, activities and entertainment. We hope it will serve as a valuable resource to everyone, whether you are new or established here in Baku. 
We would really appreciate your help to maintain and grow this list further so that everyone can benefit from the information. If you would like to recommend a business or let us know that something has changed with a business already listed, please complete the Community Resources List Update Form. It's a very simple form and will only take a minute to submit your thoughts. Thank you in advance for sharing!
