Academic Teams Academic teams at TSMS are offered to any students who seek an academic challenge, personal development, and the benefits of teamwork through mutual support and great sense of accomplishment.

TSMS Academic Teams:

Most teams are established annually and meet after school, before school, weekends or holidays. Students participate in an academic team in addition to their regular courses. Participation in team activities, attendance to regular study sessions, showing positive attitude and support for team members are keystones for student accomplishment and determining factors for coaches to choose and maintain members. Students are responsible to monitor their calendars carefully to avoid scheduling conflicts. TSMS currently offers the following academic teams:

Math OlympiadThe Math Olympiad Enrichment Program is dedicated to bringing challenging mathematics materials to our students.
Science Olympiad Team competition in which students compete in 'events' pertaining to various scientific disciplines.
Geo Bee Geo Bee is an annual geography contest designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world.
