TASIS Elementary School to Host Open House on February 6
Guests are cordially invited to tour the oldest American boarding school in Europe, meet the Elementary School’s leadership team, and learn about why TASIS is the premier independent school in Ticino.
TASIS Elementary School (grades Pre-Kindergarten through five) opened its doors as the first English-language elementary school in Ticino in the fall of 2005. Since its inception, our School has grown from 43 students to a vibrant international community of nearly 200 children representing more than 30 nationalities and speaking more than 20 languages as a mother tongue.
Nestled on the Collina d’Oro (“Hill of Gold”) in Montagnola, a small village overlooking Lugano, our campus is surrounded by the Swiss mountains above and Lake Lugano below. Our Elementary School campus comprises six classroom buildings, a science laboratory, two dining halls, and two playgrounds, and students enjoy access to all that the main TASIS campus has to offer, including two gymnasiums and a large theater. Students in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and first grade spend most of their time at the Early Childhood Center known as Al Focolare, which has its own kitchen facilities, playground space, art room, and library.
