The Parent Network's mission is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and community environment at The International School. Newly reformed in the Spring of 2015, it serves to identify and organize volunteer support at TIS. Just as importantly, it aims to strengthen relationships, communication, and collaboration between parents, faculty, and administrators. It will be integral to furthering the school’s mission to provide an excellent education for its future global citizens.
Here are some basic facts:
• The Parent Network provides volunteer support for the advancement of the larger TIS mission. All current volunteer positions are overseen by the Parent Network.
• It is led by Steering Committee, comprised mostly of parents
• Works in close collaboration with the school administration and staff
• Aligned with values, vision, and policies of TIS
• Membership is free and open to all parents and guardians of currently enrolled students
• It’s a wonderful way to get to know other TIS families, build community, and help to strengthen our school.

- Show your child that school is important in your family's life
