High School Activities
Clubs and activities support and complement the curriculum in order to create the most effective experience possible. As such, we want to ensure that all co-curricular activities be delivered according to regular TCIS mission and standards.
The goals of a healthy co-curricular program are two-fold. Firstly, we want students who are passionate about an idea to be able to engage in practicing that idea. They should have guidance in appropriate ways to plan and pursue opportunities, but with the freedom to explore leadership opportunities on their own. Secondly, activities should be accessible to a wide variety of students in order to facilitate new experiences and the opportunity to discover new passions.
These clubs are available only to students for participation within the TCIS community. These activities are operated separately from our regular KAIAC and APAC conference events, which include sports, forensics, and musical exchange.
TCIS clubs are very much student-driven and involve students in a variety of ways. Some clubs serve the group itself as they pursue activities of interest, while others serve the TCIS or local communities. Some engage with international groups and initiatives through affiliations (like Model United Nations or UNICEF) and other clubs.
