"Tartu International School is the only school in Southern Estonia offering both education and operation in English."
Tartu International School (TIS) was founded in April 2001 in response to a demand from the international community in Tartu.
We are a private elementary school providing a high-quality programme, with English as a language of instruction, to students between the ages of 6 and 15. We promote learning and international diversity without any political or religious bias, thereby, serving the international community of Tartu. Tartu International School follows the Estonian National Curriculum and IB Primary Years Programme.
Currently, we have 43 students enrolled in grades 1-10, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:4, meaning that students benefit from an exceptionally personalised learning environment.
Younger siblings of students at our school are able to attend Tartu International Kindergarten, which is governed by the same non-profit organisation as the school. Further details on the Kindergarten can be found here.
We also work in partnership with Tartu Finnish School.
