History

TAISI was the first platform in India that brought together schools in the context of international education. With an open mind and vision to promote learning processes that embraced the best of traditional Indian educational models as well as international models, the TAISI journey started.  

The official launch took place at the ‘Leadership and Learning Conference’ held on 23 – 25, September 2006 in Hyderabad. Over the years TAISI has grown considerably from a handful of schools to over 150 schools across the country. With enough challenges and opportunities ahead TAISI is firmly committed to serving the education community in India.

Back in 2005, after attending an IB conference in Perth, school leader Ms. Anuradha Monga reflected on the conference during a seven hour layover in Singapore. She realised that she was one of the few Indian heads who was represented at the conference, and wondered whether it would be possible to organise similar events in the subcontinent? She felt that it would be beneficial for the education community to formally bring together schools in India and work together in the spirit of mutual enrichment. To learn from and with each other was the idea behind TAISI. Upon returning and after calling a few Heads in India, TAISI was created. The founding members were Ellen Stern, Satish Jayarajan, Bruce Robinson, Helge Gallinger, Dr. Bindu Hari, Janajit Ray, and the late Subhas Mathew.
