The 21st century promises to be a time of rapid changes, immense opportunities and unprecedented interconnectivity. It will require individuals who are life-long learners possessing critical thinking, diverse academic and practical skills and a willingness to pursue their dreams.
TLC International School is committed to the notion that education is not a collection of knowledge handed down from teachers to students, nor a race to finish a book, a course just for credit, or simply memorizing facts and figures. Education is the process of introducing students to a world of learning opportunities while helping them to develop the problem-solving skills necessary to navigate their ever-changing world.
The Learning Community International School is a non-profit foundation listed under the Maryland status classifications 509 (a) 1 and 170(b)1Ai. The school was founded in 1984 by Manfred Smith and Barbara Klein to put into practice education methods learned from years of experience in various Maryland county school systems as teachers and administrators.
