What sets us apart
From its founding in 1956 to her passing in 2009, M. Crist Fleming cited TASIS as the fulfillment of her dreams and encouraged students to follow their own—to dream big enough and bold enough to lead a life of consequence and make the world "a better place in small and large ways for all the humans who inhabit it."
TASIS is known for attracting educators who are adventurous, driven, and enthusiastic, and more than 70 percent of our faculty hold advanced degrees. We are proud to employ gifted, passionate teachers who encourage intellectual curiosity and demand the most from their students.
Our many talented artists are inspired by a majestic natural setting and enjoy access to a robust Fine Arts curriculum that includes more than 20 High School classes in Visual Arts, Music, and Drama, ranging from introductory courses in Photography to IB and AP offerings in Theatre, Architecture, and Drawing & Painting.
Our student body represents more than 60 nations and speaks more than 30 languages. The TASIS experience unlocks the unique potential of every student and produces what M. Crist Fleming called "international human beings—men and women who are capable of moving easily in any society and any civilization on the face of the earth."
We place a great deal of emphasis on teaching physical fitness and healthy lifestyles, offering a variety of adventure trips and varsity and recreational sports. Students leave TASIS with a heightened appreciation for the outdoors and an understanding of what it takes to succeed in challenging environments.
The Global Peace Index has identified Switzerland as one of just 11 nations in the world with a "very high" state of peace. As global levels of peace continue to deteriorate, it is our hope that TASIS will forever serve as a sanctuary for students from all over the world.
