Gilkey Middle School Open House and Special TIS tour

The Gilkey International Middle School  (GIMS) is an international sixth through eighth grade program. Students with high-level second-language skills enter our French, German, Spanish, or Mandarin immersion tracks, while capable students with no second-language experience enter our international track. All students pick up a new language, which they will pursue for three years or until the end of eighth grade. Both beginning and advanced language classes are taught exclusively by native speakers of the language.

TIS students and their families are invited to a Middle School Open House and special TIS-only tour of the campus.

Middle School Open House: Thursday, November 6th, 2014; 6:30-8:45 PM

Special tour only for TIS families on Friday, November 14th at 9:00 AM.

The Director of Admissions and the Head of the Middle School welcome prospective families, introduce the faculty, and provide an overview of the program. Current students and families are available to lead tours. All teachers are available in their classrooms to answer questions and show materials used during the year.
