Curriculum

The academic program for grades 9 to 12 has been developed to exceed the requirements of the more selective colleges and universities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, with core courses meeting or exceeding the Nivel Avanzado criteria for curricula and exams.  

College Board Advanced Placement Program

 

TASIS Dorado offers over 30 College Board-approved Advanced Placement (AP) Courses, which allow students to take college-level courses while still in High School. The AP Program exposes the students to skills that will serve them well in college and demonstrates the student's commitment to academic excellence. Our faculty receive College Board-approved training, and all AP course syllabi are approved by the College Board. 

Global Online Academy

AY 2022-23 marked TASIS Dorado's acceptance into the select membership of the Global Online Academy. GOA offers students access to a wide range of special interest courses taught by expert educators that can enrich their educational experience and enhance their college preparation. Students can register with the guidance and approval of the Upper School Director. TASIS Dorado is proud to be the only school in Puerto Rico to offer this opportunity to students.

GOA is a consortium of over 130 leading independent schools worldwide whose mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society. GOA schools develop the strategies and tools to lead innovation. GOA faculty design rigorous learning experiences focused on cultivating relationships, sharing diverse perspectives on global issues, and encouraging a passion for learning. GOA courses equip students with the skills, strategies, and tools to be successful modern learners. The courses offered for the school year and more information on this program can be found at GOA Course Catalog

Project-Based Learning

The Middle and Upper School levels are excited to bring their curriculum to life through Project-Based Learning, an initiative to help students apply subject-pertinent skills and overall knowledge of real-world situations pertaining to relevant issues in the community. In fact, the Harvard Graduate School of Education states, "All Project-based learning challenges students to be self-directed and take ownership of their learning." Their teachers will guide students to explore and identify issues, critically analyze the context, ask pertinent questions, and develop action plans to answer them. They will then present their projects at TASIS Dorado's PBL Fair at the end of the academic year.

College Education Course

All High School students take a College Education Course with the College Guidance Counselor to plan their high school program, keeping in mind the final goal of attending the university or college that best fits each student. Our High School Program is rigorous, requires self-discipline, and seeks to develop students' strengths and guide them to fulfill their potential for excellence in their chosen course of studies.

Thematic Events 

Thematic events are built into the curriculum offering students unique experiences throughout the year. Such opportunities include Puerto Rican Week, French/Italian Night, TASIS Creates, Semana de la Lengua, Novel Voices, Science Week, Innovation Sciences Week, Pi Day, Field Days and more.
