An Education Based on International Best Practices

Our Programs

A Tessa Education


In a globalized world, where multicultural understanding is a major asset, Tessa International School prepares its students to become bilingual, adaptable and active citizens. Children benefit not only from full immersion in a second language, but also from being constantly challenged, so that they are used to and enjoy giving their best.

Tessa’s curriculum has been built on the principle of incorporating some of the world’s best practices in education. The school is authorized as an IB World School and follows the Primary Years Programme, by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).  Tessa International School is also accredited by the French Ministry of Education for our French pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten classes, and follows the official French program.

These dynamic and goal-oriented programs provide our students with the skills to challenge themselves in an environment that holds them to the highest academic standards. This great honor acknowledges Tessa’s high standing as one of the best schools available, where your child can gain academic excellence and global understanding.

At Tessa, the development of the child is as much about the academic challenge as it is about the social and emotional evolution. Following the Yale Center of Emotional Intelligence approach, we recognize the individual needs, abilities, and interests of our students and are committed to developing the whole child in a fun and engaging environment.
