I would like to wish the entire TASIS community a Merry Christmas and the best in 2018. I would also like to express my gratitude to the families who entrust us with the growth and care of our wonderful students, and to the faculty and staff who dedicate themselves to bringing out the best in those same students. I am looking forward to seeing you in 2018!

– Headmaster Christopher Nikoloff

A Look Back at 2017

As we prepare to bid farewell to 2017, we take a second look at some of the top stories, videos, and photographs from another spectacular year in Lugano.

A Year in Review: 20 Blog Posts

We offer a quick overview of life at TASIS in 2017 by highlighting a story or two from the TASIS Blog from each of the past 12 months.

Our YouTube page recently topped one million views—with more than 350,000 coming in the past year alone! We've compiled a list of the ten videos that received the most views out of all those released in 2017.

We are closing in on 4000 followers on the tasislugano Instagram page, and we would like to highlight some of the most popular shots taken by School Photographer Kim Nelson and our talented students and faculty over the past year. Based simply on the number of likes, we've compiled a list of the 10 most-popular Instagram photos from 2017. (As was the case in 2016, shots of the view from our campus lead the way!)

The thousands of photographs on our SmugMug page have received more than 10 million total views in the past year alone! Have a look at the 10 galleries that have been viewed the most times since January 1.
