Faculty & Students
Teachers in the TASIS Dorado Summer Program are experienced, professional educators with a passion for working with students. They are carefully selected for their teaching qualifications, their experience working in American and international schools, as well as for their enthusiasm and energy for interacting with young people in all aspects of the programs, both academic and extracurricular. While providing challenging academic standards for students, members of faculty also serve as dormitory residents, activity leaders, and chaperones. The success of the Program rests largely on the professionalism of our teachers and counselors and the caring community they create.
TDSP attracts students aged 12-18 who are motivated and adventuresome. Their wide range of nationalities creates a dynamic international community and exposes students to a variety of cultures and languages. However, the program remains small by design to encourage a friendly atmosphere in which each student can contribute and stand out as an individual. A 1:6 staff-student ratio and an average class size of 12 students allows for personalized instruction and individual attention. The positive interaction between students and staff greatly enriches the academic experience and makes for a meaningful and enjoyable summer
