We believe that when the bell rings at the end of the school day, children do not stop learning. Curiosity bubbles inside the minds of children from the moment they wake in the morning to when they go to bed at night."
Our challenge is to encourage, connect, and foster learning throughout a child's day. Hence we help children make sense of all the information and experiences in their lives? We ensure that all children have opportunities to reach their full potential in a competitive world where thinking skills are the most important asset of the society?
Therefore we extend the learning throughout the day for all children by collaborating with the steering committee, parents, students and community members to work toward designing programs to meet these needs.
For a complete development of child, outdoor excursions are a must, since our inception we are active in exploration, adventure & outdoor education in surrounding hills & beyond. Our students have travelled across the country to observe what they have learnt in their classroom. At TAI we believe that world is the classroom. They remember things better when they explore it, capture it, and then reframe and present it to peers, family & friends.
TAI has all the required sports fields & Gymnasium at campus to keep the students healthy throughout the year. Opting for sports is mandatory for each student at TAI.

Students at Templeton keep themselves busy at paintings, drama, music & dance, photography & graphic design on weekends. They learn their hobby of choice throughout year, explore all possibilities of creativity and then wait for the annual exhibition during our annual day. Where the entire school is decorated with the art & craft learners and the drama, theatre, photography, dance & music has a stage show to demonstrate their learning on the Schools Annual Day.
Career Counseling today plays an important role as there are a variety of career choices and courses available to the present generation. Decisions made in High School often make or break a student's career. Once a student's potential is understood, the counselor is able to guide the student to the best career suitable to him/her and help them make the decisions that ensure career success.Students want to be successful and they don't mind getting help. They may feel shy at first or think it's weak to take help, but it is our responsibility to help them build strong careers.
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"
A feeling to serve our community & fellow human beings has always been a core value instilled in the students of TAI, whether it was the terrible landslides that took place in Almora or promoting cleanliness in Naukuchiatal. Food & clothes were provided in huge quantities to the unfortunate citizens of Almora. TAI students have played an active part in keeping Naukuchiatal clean especially around the lake areas.
Before the "Swacch Bharat" campaign began our students for many years have been planting trees in & around the campus. The "Go Green" campaign launched in 2012 saw 5 students & 2 escort teachers cycle to New Delhi as part of that programme. The "Global Village" gave participants from 15 countries to work with the students of TAI in another cleanliness drive. Social evils like drug abuse etc. Have been highlighted in "Nukkad" style dramas in Nainital & other areas.
To quote the Dalai Lama "It is not enough to be compassionate, you must act".
The school organizes outdoor trips for the students at least twice a year. Keeping in mind the need to relax and rejuvenate our body and mind, the school committee ensures the participation of all the students in these trips. The aim is to facilitate amicable exposure for the student which in turn contributes to a great learning experience. We ensure the students participate in various activities during these trips. It imbibes important soft skills in them such as Leadership Skills, Teamwork, Negotiation Skills, and Handling Emotional Situations etc.
