Secondary School Activities
At the Dushanbe International School we care for our students’ social development no less than we do for academic excellence.
There are dozens of different social activities running up school. These activities are supposed to promote students’ natural gifts and talents as well as help them engage into active social life.
For those students who are willing to learn extra material in school subjects, the teachers of DIS offer extra lessons on Chemistry, Biology, Physics, IT, Math, English, Tajik or Russian.
In addition to extra-lesson opportunities there are many clubs functioning in Secondary School:

Attending these clubs the students foster their talents and participate in various fairs and competitions related to the clubs’ activities.
Throughout an academic the school calendar incorporates a number of weeks and days for different competitions, fairs, assembly programs, group presentations, celebrations and other cultural programs.

Navruz Holiday is a special period for our school as it gives start to many sports and cultural competitions dedicated to this Spring holiday. Under support and patronage of the Shelale Educational Organization our students compete with many other students of six other Tajik-Turkish High Schools in basketball, volleyball, table tennis and chess. The cultural competitions include annual English Drama Competition, Tajik Poem Declamation Contest, Turkish Song Contest and Russian Festival of Friendship. For many years our students of DIS have been depicting excellent results at these competitions winning all sorts of prizes.
The administration of Dushanbe International School arranges local and international trips for its students. Class teachers and assistants accompany the students during the trips. Within the last five years our students have visited Turkey, USA, England and best resting zones of Tajikistan. While on those trips the students get a great cultural exposure, make new friends and spend magnificent time and have a lot of fun engaging in different entertaining activities. Such trips are thoroughly planned and organized in advance by the DIS administration. Field trips are primarily held in countryside, among the gorgeous mountains and fast-flouring rivers of Tajikistan. Sometimes DIS teachers arrange picnics in school vicinity having group talks and playing different games with their students.
