A Story for Founder's Day

Once upon a time, in a land of cheese and chocolate, there lived a courageous woman with a taste for pearls and Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails.

She had a flair for décor, reveled in candlelit dinners…

…and always enjoyed a good road trip with friends and her canine companions.

This courageous woman also had a keen eye for property and harbored a grandiose vision. She dreamed of bringing young people of all nations and cultures together to live and learn from each other in a setting that would both inspire and educate. Though her dreams of building a school were often taken off-course, nothing could diminish her exuberance and love for education.

In 1956, Mrs. Fleming founded TASIS, a place many young minds would soon call their home. Decades later, the legacy of this spirited soul continues to thrive and inspire our ever-growing community. This woman with a dream and pearls continues to prevail!

Once again, we invite you to celebrate Founder's Day with us on Monday, September 10, 2018. Mrs. Fleming and TASIS were born on that day—she in 1910 and the School in 1956. Join us as we pay tribute to the pioneer who started it all! Celebrate in your own unique way, and let us know how you commemorate this day. We look forward to hearing your stories!
