Director's Welcome
Welcome to TISA, The International School of Azerbaijan

Since 1996, TISA has empowered students with the skills, tools and passion necessary for life-long learning. We aim to develop our students’ interests across a broad spectrum of challenges and our committed teaching staff utilizes quality resources and holds students to high academic standards throughout the school.  Positive relationships, mutual support, open communication and collaboration are a priority throughout our school. In our ever-changing educational landscape a commitment to teamwork, effective communication, responsible use of technology, and authentic learning positions TISA students for future opportunity and success. 

Our diverse community representing more than 40 nations—ages 2 to 18—provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn from one another, share unique perspectives, foster mutual respect and cultivate the core values of an international IB education. TISA is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), is one of the few schools in the region to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma Programmes (DP), and is a full member of Central Eastern European School Association (CEESA).

Our facilities at TISA are unparalleled in Baku including: 3 science labs, art rooms, design technology lab, music and drama areas, cafeteria and hall, outdoor pitch, playground areas for all ages, grass pitch, an indoor sporting facility which includes two full gymnasiums, a fitness room, climbing wall, and state of the art equipment.

Whether classes, trips, competitions, professional development, service or community events—developing individual skills and expertise while contributing to the overall strength of the group, class, or team is fundamental to the TISA community. We hope you have an opportunity to join us or work with members of our community in the future.
