Tempe Academy of International Studies
Welcome to the construction website for Tempe Academy of International Studies


Tempe Academy of International Studies will be undergoing a complete school renovation while on an active campus and will be performed in multiple phases. The school will be including two new buildings. The new buildings will be single-story buildings which will blend with the existing structures.

The rebuild portion will also include a new administration and learning commons building, a new cafeteria building with a kitchen and several new classrooms. The project will include ample opportunity for natural daylight in each space, polished concrete floors and carpet use, as well as outdoor dining and learning spaces. There will also be a parent drop-off area with longer queuing areas and more parking opportunities.

We will have a Contractor’s in the Classroom program with Tempe Academy, but we are still designing what this program will look like for the IB students.
