We believe that:
• It is the school's responsibility to provide a positive climate for learning.
• Discipline is an essential part of education.
• Students have rights and responsibilities.
• School rules should be established and understood by parents, teachers and students.
• Discipline, as well as learning, is individualized.
• Parents should be deeply involved in the discipline of their daughters.
• There is no uniform formula for controlling misbehavior .
• Parents, teachers, and administrators should help students work towards self-discipline, self-control, and self-responsibility.
At the TIS we strive to maintain a wholesome and comfortable environment in which students are able to maximize on their talents and potential. In order to do that, we have set up some rules, regulations, and expectations that will help them better concentrate their efforts on schoolwork.
In order to avoid any disciplinary action or deduction of points from the conduct grade, students, both new and current, are expected to abide by the following instructions. Parents are encouraged to take part in this process by keeping in touch with the administrators in order to avoid any surprises.
Over and above disciplinary action, infractions will result in points deducted from the conduct grade for all the following as well as others:
1. School uniform is compulsory at all times. Students must attend all scheduled classes in full uniform and respect the school dress code; PE uniform is compulsory on days of PE classes.
2. Mobile phones are strictly prohibited and will be confiscated.Ø
3. All electronic gadgets, including MP3/4 and CD/DVD players, Walkman, etc, are prohibited and will be confiscated.Ø
4. Unusual hairdos are discouraged amongst all students.Ø
5. Absence can only be justified by valid medical reports OR under extenuating circumstances which are totally left to the discretion of the school administration.
6. Unexcused late attendance will have repercussions; students must be in the classroom before the teacher enters and a session is thus officially opened. Students who arrive late will not be admitted into classes unless they have a note of consent and the parents have informed the school administration about the delay.
7. Parents have to inform school authorities about a student's absence before 9 am.Ø
8. Students who are registered with the school transport service are expected to commute to and from school by the same service at all times. These students are not allowed to go in their friends' cars unless their parents have sent notes of consent to the fact or called the school administration.
9. Students will not be allowed to leave the school premises before the end of their school day unless the parents inform the school administration in advance.
In addition, students are required to:
1. Ensure the fundamental right of their fellow students, which is to create an atmosphere, on the school premises, where they are able to study as they are expected to;
2. Show proper, ‘student’ behavior regardless of circumstances; and, accordingly, conduct themselves well in relation to all personnel, whether administration, faculty, or staff;
3. Refrain from bringing food and drinks to the classrooms;Ø
4. Complete all assignments and meet deadlines;Ø
5. Be mindful of their responsibilities towards school property and educational materials;Ø
6. Notify, without unjustified postponement, their parents of a request made by the school administration or faculty to discuss educational/curricular or disciplinary matters.
