The year has got off to a roaring start, with special events, sports competitions, tests, reading, and classes in full swing. In addition to the hum of everyday life at a school, a TASIS year starts out with many traditional community-building events such as the High School Boat Dance, the MS/HS Class Hikes, Founder's Day, and ES Curriculum Night.

But the most magical events are the little things. Roommates learn to live together, students begin to develop study skills, Pre-K children can attend a day of classes with smiles instead of tears, and everyone learns how to navigate the dining halls. It has been a good start to the 2013 -2014 school year with memories being made every day.
