“My time on the basketball court has had the biggest impact on me. The values I have learned from Coach Knapp are some that I have weaved into my everyday life and will carry with me to college and beyond. When playing on the court, I will always appreciate seeing my friends, family, and the larger school community cheering us on.”
“My experience at TASIS has helped me master time management. With the rigorous academics and abundance of extracurricular activities, it can be a struggle to find time to do it all. After years of taking advanced courses, taking AP classes, and playing two sports, I am finally confident in my ability to juggle multiple things at once!”

“What I value most about TASIS Dorado, and will miss greatly, is the close relationships students are able to make with teachers. Throughout my years here, I've built such close ties with my teachers that TASIS has become my second home. Not only have my teachers played a monumental role in my life, but TASIS has allowed me to develop dynamic leadership skills. Because of these experiences, I have become the scholar I am today and prepared to be an instrument of change.”
