"Visit if possible; it is a great campus. Ask as many questions of TASIS as you need to - Admissions staff are extremely helpful & supportive. Read the web site and the school's Facebook page to get a feel for the spirit of the school. If you want a school that treats students with respect & as individuals, and helps them fulfill their potential, we highly recommend TASIS.
