Application Process Academic Year 2021-22
Guided by the mission of our family of international TASIS Schools, TASIS Dorado strives to inspire the pursuit of knowledge, love of wisdom, appreciation for beauty, and development of character. These values--coupled with artistic endeavor, physical activity, and service to others--combine to provide an unparalleled educational opportunity.
Our goal is for all students to thrive at TASIS Dorado! We seek curious, engaged children who grow up to be confident, kind young adults, and are eager to join our community and contribute their energy and talents to whatever they pursue. Our aim is to build a community that represents excellence, creativity, and diversity.
All candidates are given careful consideration in the admission process and any negative decisions are made regretfully, but with the best interest of the child and the school in mind. Reasons for either admission or non-acceptance of applicants are made upon consideration of many factors, including the results of testing, school records, and recommendations, as well as an assessment of whether the school has the appropriate educational programs to meet the needs of the child.
Final admissions status for all applicants will be communicated in writing, based on the final decision of the admissions committee. Each applicant’s admission folder and its content are the property of TASIS Dorado and may not be copied.
Applications will be considered and reviewed when the student file is complete. Please refer to the checklists by grades outlined below.
Personalized Learning Accommodations
Our school has limited facilities and resources for students with personalized learning requirements, but we do all that is reasonable to comply with the legal and ethical requirements to accommodate the needs of students with disabilities to which, with reasonable adjustments, the school can cater adequately. TASIS Dorado does provide additional social-emotional support from school counselors and offers academic reinforcement during the school day to help students reach their potential.
The school recognizes the importance of including students, parents and guardians, classroom teachers, special services staff, and administrators in a collaborative process for the delivery of additional special services to students with learning differences. Areas of support offered at TASIS Dorado but at an additional cost to the family include initial assessments for academic services, speech and language services, occupational and physical therapy evaluation and services, and academic tutoring after school hours. TASIS Dorado administrators are able to help coordinate these support services for students of all grade levels, but the specific cost for the service is determined by the provider.
TASIS Dorado does not, however, offer a full spectrum of special education programs. Admission and continuation in the School are contingent upon a match between the student’s and the family’s needs and the level of services available Please be clear and specific about your child’s needs during the application process.
TASIS Dorado does not discriminate in its admission policies for reasons of gender, religion, race, or national origin.
