TIS was founded in October 2003 by Mr. & Mrs. Alphonse Ayite Adjavon with a vision of creating a world-class, international-minded, service-oriented institution that would create the ethical citizens that Ghana requires to progress. Students who come to the boarding school go through the IGSCE, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme before going on to tertiary institutions in Ghana and beyond.
TIS is a great family school looking to improve the standard of education in Ghana and is proud to be celebrating 15 years of excellence.
