The Tarsus American School begins its second century of providing Turkish youth with a dynamic education designed to foster caring, understanding, and concerned citizens who will continue to lead and serve their country as do the hundreds of TAS graduates. Following a combined Turkish and American curriculum with particular stress on the daily use of English, TAS students develop skills which will help them to analyze and generate ideas and concepts which will improve the world for future generations to come. The school aims to provide the best teachers for its students, and to give students the most productive academic setting and social environment in order for them to attain a high level of academic skills. TAS aims to teach English to the students with an emphasis on learning from native speakers who are credentialed from the best overseas universities. It also aims to teach the students the social skills necessary to live and work in an ever-changing global economy; and finally teach them to think independently, individually and critically.
