TASOK Secondary School students are bright, kind, engaging, and active. Our Secondary School program promotes student growth through rigorous academics that employs English as a medium of instruction.  We aim to develop students who possess a passion for learning and a healthy curiosity about the world around them. We strive to nurture our students’ creativity and challenge them to think both critically and independently.

Our community takes great pride in our many nationalities, languages, and cultures. TASOK Secondary School values a culture of caring, where students are safe to explore and embrace their individuality. We appreciate the unique perspective that each student brings and believe every individual enhances the learning environment. We foster a student body that identifies as part of an evolving world community and endeavor to authentically connect students to our host country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

TASOK High School is a great place to be!    –  Lesley Peacock, Secondary Principal

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove.
