Each student who enrolls in Oxford International School of Tunis(OIST) comes with a unique background and individual potential. As school community, we are committed to provide a supportive environment in which students can feel safe and secure to develop and nurture that potential.
In addition to providing an opportunity for students to succeed academically, we also determined to ensure that each student feel safe, comfortable, healthy, and reach their full potential both academically and socially. Getting to school safely and willingly, feeling confident, and well in both mind and body are simple yet important parts of our warm and supportive school community environment.
OIST strives to provide a variety of activities and support mechanisms for a diverse range of needs and goals for each student in our community. From additional support in accessing the curriculum to a strong after-school extra-curricular program, each student at OIST has the opportunity to augment the learning in the classroom through the support and guidance of our school community.
Students learn best when they are mentally, emotionally and physically fit. Our students have the opportunity to participate in activities as diverse as the students themselves. From robotics to swimming and many classes in-between, students have their choice of a wide variety of extracurricular activities.
Excursions and visits to places of interest, such as exhibitions and museums, are carefully planned and extend the knowledge, skills and understanding gained in the classroom. These activities are one way of connecting with the local community, helping students to see the relation between what is being learned in the classroom and real-life.
OIST helps students explore their interests outside of the classroom by offering programs for children from preschool through grade 9. We are proud to offer extracurricular activities so that all the students have the opportunity to explore their interests beyond the classroom.
The OIST views after school activities and enrichment as an integral part of the education of our children, and to that end offers a wide range of clubs that aim to introduce the child to potential hobbies, develop particular sports, provide language learning and inspire an interest in areas that perhaps they would not be exposed to through the normal curriculum.
