The Capstone Study Abroad program serves as the ultimate capstone to a TIS education, enabling students to validate their language proficiency and cultural understanding through real world experience. Your child will embark on this at the end of their 5th grade year here at TIS. 

Parents of students from PK through 4th are invited to join us for an info session about Capstone Study Abroad. Get basic questions answered, and speak with parents who recently returned from the trips! 

Afterwards, please visit the 5th Grade Exhibitions.  Exhibition is a special unit of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme designed and executed by the students themselves. This Exhibition is truly unique to The lnternational School because we connect it to the 5th grade Capstone Study Abroad trips. Our students will present the findings of their research projects conducted this trimester and during their time on Capstone, and discuss their overall experience abroad. They will be happy to speak with you both in English and in their target language!
