Dedicated faculty and staff are the number one asset of TAIS. Being a boarding school, TAIS faculty and staff are called on to give their weekend and evening times to help students in a variety of ways. Fun weekend activities would not be possible without a huge amount of hard work from members of the team. Teachers are call on to prepare food and entertain students in their homes. This results in close bonds between students and teachers and a family-like atmosphere at Taiwan Adventist International School. These bonds make classroom instruction much more effective because teachers have connections with students and students realize they are there for each and every student.
