WELCOME FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL This school year, we marked TASIS Dorado’s 20th Anniversary of its founding in 2002. Our mission and values, then and now, encourage our students to strive for excellence in all intellectual, social, and personal endeavors and commit themselves to become good citizens working for the welfare of their communities and their world. TASIS Dorado’s growth these past two decades has been nothing short of astonishing as the School extended its education from elementary through middle and high school years, improving and expanding its curricular offerings, and building the finest campus facilities on the Island. This Report on Progress and Philanthropy also commemorates an exceptional year in school history as the challenges of the ongoing pandemic continued to disrupt education around the globe. Yet, it did not stop TASIS Dorado from returning to in-person learning and delivering a world-class education to our students. I am immensely proud of how the School’s faculty and staff gracefully engaged with students and parents every day despite the changes throughout the year, adapting to constantly shifting conditions and public guidelines. Thankfully, collaboration and community have been hallmarks of the School from its inception. This year was no different as TASIS Dorado community members rallied around our teachers and students and provided them with heartfelt support throughout the most challenging moments of the year. Consequently, we emerge from this school year stronger as a community, strengthened by the generosity, empathy, flexibility, and commitment of our entire TASIS Dorado family. Many of the facts and figures in these pages provide evidence of how our constituents continued to come together and support the School, as demonstrated by our record-breaking fundraising year. With twenty years since our founding, we fondly remember our past, take pride in our many successes in the present, and look forward with great anticipation towards a promising future. The unwavering commitment from our entire community - students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, grandparents, community partners, and friends - is inspirational and will sustain us in the years ahead. Thank you for playing a pivotal role during this transformational time in our history. Gratefully, Deborah K. Monroe Head of School

The TASIS School in Dorado, led by Head of School Deborah Monroe, celebrates 20 years of transforming lives. As a world-class, college-preparatory, independent school, TASIS Dorado students strive for excellence to become engaged global citizens and innovative, selfless leaders. Due to a holistic approach, students embrace

service and leadership, pursue their passions, and engage in rigorous scholarship. 100% of TASIS Dorado graduates continue their education at prestigious, top-tier colleges and universities.

TASIS Dorado’s supporters of $2,500 or more gathered on Friday, September 24, 2021, at the inaugural Celebration of Giving reception. The musical talents of our teachers, Joel Bracero, Jonathan Martínez, and Fabián Rivera, and students Kamalkali Toraño '22 and Miguel Baños '24 delighted guests at the start of the evening. Later, Deborah Monroe, Head of School, offered a gracious and heartfelt welcome to kickoff our formal program.

and Wellness & Athletics Center. Betzaida García, Chair of Institutional Advancement, shared recent successes in fundraising efforts for the Capital Campaign for the Wellness & Athletics Center and outlined remaining targets for the project. To conclude the formal program, Gildren Bengoa, Director of Institutional Advancement, outlined future ways to get involved and support TASIS Dorado.

Overall, the joyous evening was a welcomed Federico Stubbe, Jr., President of the Board of success engaging over 100 community members Directors, highlighted upcoming building projects while raising $515,000 to support TASIS Dorado’s and future areas of support, including the TD HUB overall fundraising goals.


DESERVING PRIORITIES TASIS DORADO FUND

Contributions to the TASIS Dorado Fund, our school’s annual fund, serve as unrestricted gifts that are critical to the success of our program and pave the way to meet institutional demands throughout the year. The fund received $92,000, which supports pressing needs beyond planned operations, making way for new opportunities, program expansion, and unexpected challenges.

SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Each year, TASIS Dorado awards full tuition scholarships to deserving, young students. The recently endowed Maritere Matosantos Scholarship Fund supports the school’s efforts in offering an exceptional education in our Upper School program. This year, $167,000 was donated to support 11 students in their educational journey.

Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a part of the Bear community, but TASIS Dorado was not something my family could afford. Today, I am so grateful for this opportunity because the possibilities are endless. I can focus on my studies, learn many languages, and one day become a surgeon. Thank you, TASIS Dorado donors, for making my dreams come true. TD Scholarship Recipient, Class of 2028

EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING FUND

The Tim Howard Excellence in Teaching Fund received $45,500 in donations in its inaugural year. This restricted, endowed fund recognizes teachers who demonstrate instructional growth, expertise, creativity, and innovation. Drawing on its revenue, this fund will benefit exceptional educators and may be distributed as a monetary gift, funding for a passion project, or professional development. The school will focus on growing the investment through targeted fundraising efforts during the next five years. Once fully endowed, deserving TASIS Dorado teachers will be rewarded through a vetted process.

BEE PROJECT

TASIS Dorado’s Bee Project, led by the Bee Club, is an educational initiative focused on research, environmental education, and social entrepreneurship established after Hurricane Maria, when 50% of the Island’s bees and beehives were destroyed. In the first year, funding supported the Bee Club in its efforts to install a small bee yard at the Sabanera Farm. This year, the Bee Project received $15,000, which helped over 200 students maintain the bee yard, enhance product development of the Bee Club’s Bear Hive Honey Company, and support the educational efforts of the Club’s mentor beekeeper.

Looking ahead, fundraising efforts for these transformative priorities will continue. We encourage and welcome community support as we remain committed to growing our annual fund and endowing our Scholarship and Excellence in Teaching funds.

Construction is well underway on the future Wellness & Athletics Center, set to open in fall 2023. Due to this year’s trends in increased construction costs and labor supply constraints, the Wellness & Athletics Center is now estimated at $8.5 million. Understanding the importance and value of this addition to the TD experience, our community remained committed to the project.

SINCE 2018, THE START OF THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN, OUR DONORS HAVE RAISED

$ 5,137,643 IN SUPPORT OF THE WELLNESS & ATHLETICS CENTER.

Students, and the larger community, will significantly benefit from this state-of-the-art facility where they can embrace a healthy lifestyle, develop leadership qualities, and cultivate essential life skills. The venue will feature an air-conditioned gymnasium, a Toro Verde-sponsored rock climbing wall, a fitness center, and basketball, volleyball, and indoor soccer courts. External improvements include new turf for soccer, track & field facilities, a beach volleyball court, and two playgrounds. This new facility will lend itself to growing and improving our current TD Athletics program, including possibilities for pre-season workouts, year-round training, expansion of programs for our younger athletes, additional coaching staff, and unique physical education opportunities. Under the guidance of a Director of Wellness, the center will enhance TASIS Dorado’s current Wellness Program with a curriculum focused on emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual balance. The culinary arts classroom will foster nutritional exploration and programming. School counselors’ offices will invite students to gather and converse in a safe and comfortable environment. Multipurpose spaces will facilitate active programs such as yoga, pilates, dance, self-defense, and boot camp.


First Concrete Pouring Ceremony To commemorate a significant step forward in constructing the Wellness & Athletics Center, TASIS Dorado hosted a celebratory First Concrete Pouring Ceremony on February 24, 2022, with students and top donors of $25,000 or more, alongside our Board of Directors, administrators, faculty, and staff. The formal program included remarks from Gabriella Decartes ’25, studentathlete, and Ceciliana Stubbe and Federico Stubbe, Jr., President of the Board of Directors, plus a champagne toast from Betzaida García, Chair of Institutional Advancement. Students from each grade, PPK to 12, personalized small stones and placed them in the center’s future lobby before pouring concrete on top. The first pour signified the importance of laying the foundation for years of exciting competition and personal growth. At the same time, a

customized plaque made during the ceremony will serve as a keepsake to remember this historical moment. Varsity student-athletes concluded the ceremony with a TDthemed balloon reveal.

I look forward to a competitive athletic tournament with students, teachers, families, and friends all celebrating and cheering on TASIS Dorado student-athletes. The Wellness & Athletics Center will be a gathering place for our community to experience a sense of comradery. Here, we will create memories to cherish forever. TD Student-Athlete, Class of 2028

Customized Bricks for the TD Bear Trail

236 supporters secured their customized brick for the TD Bear Trail leading to the main entrance of the Wellness & Athletics Center. The brick sales represents the wide-spread support of this state-of-the-art facility as it paves the way for future generations.


TASIS Dorado’s IRONBEAR 2.0 Challenge, held from October 25 to November 13, 2021, encouraged the community to build upon the momentum from 2020’s inaugural Challenge. In honor of the TASIS Dorado’s 20th anniversary, IRONBEARS committed to 20 days of daily exercise while raising funds supporting the Wellness & Athletics Center Capital Campaign. Unlike last year’s virtual format, the friendly competition brought IRONBEARS together for two in-person events. The in-school Kickoff, held on October 25, offered mini-challenges, giveaways, raffles, and the right amount of motivation to get our IRONBEARS moving. The TD community enjoyed the 5K & Fun Run Finale held on November 13 at Dorado Beach Resort to close out the Challenge. Surpassing all participation, exercise, and fundraising goals, 409 IRONBEARS completed 92,314 minutes of exercise and raised $127,340 in just 20 days. It was a humbling and impressive experience to see what can be accomplished when our community bands together. A sincere thank you to all of our IRONBEARS, with special thanks to our student, parent, faculty, and staff volunteers, and recognition to our full event sponsors, the Powel Family, Patton Hope Foundation, and Dorado Beach Resort.

LOOKING AHEAD

TD HUB

| DINING HALL AND CENTER FOR INNOVATION, TEACHING & LEARNING

A new two-story TD HUB student center, set to open in 2023, had its first phase opening in March 2022. Students were thrilled to experience the first floor’s renovated Dining Hall, which offers a reimagined culinary experience for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. The communal ambiance filled with an abundance of natural light is complemented by comfortable table seating and a flexible furniture layout encouraging students to gather, eat, and recharge. The second floor of the HUB will serve as home to the newly established Center for Innovation, Teaching & Learning (CITL or The Center as it will be called), which is a dynamic, collaborative environment that inspires the TASIS Dorado community to learn together, exchange ideas, and creatively problem-solve. The Center will enrich teaching and learning by encouraging meaningful interdisciplinary discussions and forward-thinking practices using specialized classrooms, studios, labs, study zones, group spaces, lounge areas, and a revitalized library. These spaces, coupled with cutting-edge technology and equipment, will lend to

collaborative projects, professional development, broadcasting and media classes, eSports, music and video production, podcasts, vlogging, recordings, and virtual learning, serving as a portal to share TASIS to the World. TASIS Dorado invites interested supporters to learn more about naming opportunities and fundraising needs to maximize The Center’s impact.


GLOBAL ONLINE ACADEMY After a rigorous application process, TASIS Dorado is honored to join the Global Online Academy (GOA), which is an elite consortium of some of the highest-rated private schools in the world. Through this membership, TASIS Dorado will leverage a powerful global network of leading institutions and its collective resources to amplify passiondriven learning for our high school students through unique elective course offerings. Our teachers will also have opportunities to enrich their instructional practices with access to leading thinkers and innovative educators. Joining the GOA is a key step in bringing the world to TASIS Dorado and TASIS Dorado to the world.

TASIS TASIS DORADO LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

DORADO LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

LEADERSHIP ACADEMY FUTURE LEADERS & FOREVER LEARNERS

This year, TASIS Dorado launched a customized Leadership Academy, a Stubbe family legacy program designed to elevate and refine the leadership qualities of selected students in their sophomore and junior years. During sophomore year, students identify strengths, recognize essential goals, and explore and apply design thinking, while establishing a foundation of leadership skills and self-awareness. In the summer between sophomore and junior years, students travel abroad to explore global issues while leveraging their acquired skills at the Global Leadership Summit in Berlin, Germany. Throughout junior year, students receive professional internship opportunities and focus on capstone projects using design-thinking to tackle real-world problems. The summer of 2022 marked the Leadership Academy’s first trip to the Global Leadership Summit, which attracted more than 700 students from eight countries, 17 states, and Puerto Rico. Five students from our program were in the final eight teams of the summit’s design-thinking health and wellness product competition. To our delight, Ariana González Negrón ‘24 was a member of the winning team, and her team’s prototype will be displayed in the Nobel Prize Museum in Sweden.
