Welcome to the Tempe Academy of International Studies school website!

We are proud to be an authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme World School for students in grades 6-8. If you are looking for a middle school that’s mission is to ignite curiosity, cultivate creativity, encourage compassion, and launch leaders to solve and develop solutions to real-world problems, then Tempe Academy is the learning community for YOU.

We offer young scholars a small school environment where the unique needs of individuals are at the heart of learning. We work hard to attract and retain innovative, inspiring, and dedicated educators who enjoy utilizing the most advanced resources available to challenge our students. We value fresh thinking, and new approaches to learning at Tempe Academy, and students are encouraged to take initiative and spearhead projects that will help make a positive impact in the local and broader community.

Becoming an IB student is a process and a journey of continuous learning and reflection. Our IB students grow and develop over time a deep understanding of the IB Mission, Philosophy, Frameworks, Principles, and Learner Profiles.
