Parent Support Group

All QSI schools will work to establish an active Parent Support Group. All QSI Parent Support Groups will use the same acronym of PSG or Parent Support Group. 

All parents are encouraged to become actively involved with the school through the Parent Support Group.

The goal of the Parent Support Group in QSI is to make the learning environment the best possible place for children.  To achieve this goal, the Parent Support Group (PSG) will:

  1. Work to enhance communication among parents as well as between parents and the school.
  2. Organize educational and social events for QSI students and/or the school community.
  3. Assist classroom educators in ways that allow for more efficient and productive use of classroom management time.
  4. Enrich the regular classroom curriculum.
  5. Promote fund-raising events in order to purchase items or services the school might not easily obtain.
  6. Develop events that encourage student involvement and understanding of the local community or host country.

Financial Scholarship

The Tirana International School Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance for academically outstanding Albanian students seeking to benefit from an internationally based education program. The program is available from elementary school through high school graduation, providing scholarship students with a well-rounded academic program as well as a culturally-diverse campus to complete their studies.

Up to 10% of the total school tuition paid by full-fee students will be made available for scholarships. The scholarship is a financial-need as well as a merit-based scholarship. The decision to grant scholarships is made each year by the Tirana International School Advisory Board and is based on several criteria, including demonstrated financial need, English proficiency, exam placement results, letters of reference, and previous school performance.

You can find full details of the scholarship program for school year 2019-2020 by writing to the admissions office. 

Please note the deadline to submit scholarship applications is March 29, 2019, but parents may submit the application at any time.  However, those acceptable applications received before April 2019 will have precedence over those submitted later.  

For further information please contact the admissions office at egla-lila@alb.qsi.org

Admissions Information

Moving your children to a new school or country can be an incredibly stressful time for a family. Along with the pressures of relocation, children often are concerned about fitting in socially and academically in their new school home. Our teachers and staff have vast experience in helping those new to TIS to quickly form relationships and to experience initial success in the classroom, allowing for a smooth transition. Along with a full-time counselor, our office has an admissions coordinator that is happy to answer questions about TIS or even just life in Albania.

Please feel free to write to Egla Lila at egla-lila@tirana.qsi.org with any inquiries or if you would like to arrange a tour of the facilities. 

Many common questions are answered in our School Information Packet 2019-2020, which we can mail to you on request. In addition we are happy to address specific questions regarding student needs, our curricular program, and current after school offerings by email or in person.
