At the core of TAISI’s mission is the advancement of educational thought, theory and practice.

TAISI organizes professional development for school leaders, middle management and teachers. In the last seven years of its existence, it has brought speakers such as Bambi Betts of the Principals Training Centre and the Academy of International School heads, Susan Baum and Henry Nicols from the International Centre for Talent Development, Kevin Bartlett and Gordon Eldridge from the International School of Brussels, Ellen Stern of the Cairo American School, James MacDonald from the Yokohama International School, Malcolm Nicolson from IBMYP, among many others (see complete list here).
TAISI has risen to the fore-front of inter-schools sports, organizing a student sports meet every year. Its popularity has grown incredibly, with the last meet attracting over 800 students from 40 schools all around the country.
