The International School of Olomouc (TISOL)

International School of Prague


The International School of Olomouc (TISOL) was established in August 2001 by the International School of Prague (ISP) and LG Philips in response to a need for an International School for expatriate children in the Olomouc area. TISOL is a satellite campus of the ISP, (which is accredited by the Council of International Schools), but operates as an independent campus. TISOL began its first school year with 14 students, and has grown steadily in response to economic growth and investment in the region. Currently there are 26 students from 7 countries, in four classes with seven members of staff (4 teachers and 3 auxiliary). TISOL accepts students from the ages of 4 to 14.

CURRICULUM

TISOL offers a comprehensive international curriculum based upon the curriculum of the ISP. English, mathematics, science, social studies, music, art and PE are included. There is a very heavy emphasis on the development of all aspects of English language skills. All lessons are taught in English apart from Czech, which is taught to all students from grade 3 onwards. German, Dutch and French are also available to students who wish to extend their language repertoire.

STAFF

The Principal and senior English teacher are both native English speakers (Australian and English), while the rest of the staff are Czech. All Czech staff are fluent in English.

FACILITIES

The school is within easy walking distance of the city centre and operates independently within the grounds of a Czech elementary school. Facilities include classrooms, a library/computer room, an extensive outside play area and a gym (the play areas and the gym are shared with the Czech school).

SCHOOL YEAR AND SCHOOL DAY

The school year begins in mid August and finishes in June. There are 180 teaching days, which include 3 school camps. Teaching hours are 08: 30 14: 30 with 2 x 45 min breaks.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

The international mix of students allows exploration of our many cultures through school activities and scheduled events involving the whole school community. TISOL is characterized by the close relationships that build up between students and staff.

We strongly believe that a positive environment allows students to develop confidence, maturity, independence and a strong sense of responsibility. We pride ourselves on being able to provide individual attention and support at a level unmatched by most schools. We believe in nurturing and teaching the whole child, not just in teaching subjects.
