Campus[edit]

Why does it mention Hell after Spain ? something went wrong there! As far as the campus goes, elegant and laid back would not be my description for it. It's more dilapidated and cramped. But thats just my "point of view." Ahem. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.113.8.215 (talkcontribs) 01:46, 22 August 2005.

I know this is years later, but according to WP:V information must be verifiable. "Descriptions" must be sourced from published, reliable sources. I.E. if Journalist Sally Smith describes the school as "X, Y, Z," say "Sally Smith said that the school was 'X, Y, and Z'" WhisperToMe (talk) 00:45, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
In Europe, Switzerland especially, there is simply not enough physical space for a large open campus like at other boardins schools, or universities. The TASIS campus itself is comprable to the size of several municipalities around Lugano. It is also undergoing an extensive expansion intended to double the campus size and rennovate existing structures, and so most of the buildings have been under construction at some point in the past few years. --Ourai, writing from 84.55.192.114 11:31, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Notable alumni[edit]

-Deleting Koppe and Martin from "Notable Alumni" as they have yet to truly become notables, however promising either young man may be. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 128.189.148.211 (talkcontribs) 09:10, 7 February 2006.


Deleted the following names from the "Alumni" list: Kerim Askoy, Vas Rajan, Costas Despotoupolous, Gerardo Dominiguez-Angulo, Phillipa Machin, Johan Soderstrom. My reasoning here is quite simple; they were all batch-added at the same time, I did not find anything notable about them in a quick search, and I know for a fact that Kerim Askoy is entering ninth grade this school year, and he is certainly not an alumnus. For the "Alimni" list, please only add names if they are indeed noteworthy. Ourai 10:35, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Puerto Rican sister school[edit]

On August 2002 another TASIS sister school was opened in Puerto Rico. This school started with elementary school children from the age of 3 years old up to eighth grade at the present and ongoing to high school. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Prsunshine (talkcontribs) 18:12, September 16, 2006

Changes[edit]

I've redone the entire page, added and deleted a lot of info. At least now it doesn't read like a school brochure.
