QSI Tirana International School

QSI Tirana International School

Tirana International School is a private, non-profit institution that opened in September of 1991. It offers a high-quality education in the English language for preschool, elementary, and secondary students. Classes are small, allowing for ample individual attention for all students. The warm and welcoming school community makes it an ideal place to receive a quality education from QSI.

The academic program is rigorous, taking advantage of the strengths of a mastery learning approach within a framework of student performance-based principles. The high school offers a wide variety of Advanced Placement (AP) courses both on site and online.

The school offers a host of after-school activities to complement the academic program. Teachers and community members provide a mixture of free and for-pay activities for elementary students. For middle school and high school students, TIS participates in both sports and academic-related activities through the Central and Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA), the Tirana Association of International Schools (TAIS), and the QSI Balkans schools in Sarajevo, Podgorica, and Skopje.

QSI requires teachers to hold a Bachelor's Degree and Teacher Certification preferably from North America. QSI prefers that the teacher has a minimum of two years teaching experience. QSI hires teachers who love working with children. QSI requires personal interviews. Please go to www.qsi.org to learn more about where QSI will hold interviews. If you have questions about your qualifications please send a CV, certification, and degree to teach@qsi.org for review.
