10 Things You Should Know
Diversity and Inclusivity - in our DNA
Language, culture, ethnicity, and experience are at the heart of the education with three languages of instruction, and an integrated French – English curriculum, completed with Chinese Language and Culture to develop cultural intelligence and global awareness
The international and francophile nature of our section plays a central role in the school, in that it connects and bonds the engagement of our globally-minded families. Parental engagement is a crucial aspect of supporting the children's education, and family friendships are forged through our shared TES experiences.
Student Leadership Opportunities
Students have plenty of opportunities to strengthen their leadership skills, direct their own experiences, and lead others in projects, activities and beyond.
Great Teachers from Across the Globe
TES attracts the most experienced, creative, caring and dynamic teachers from around the world.
Students' prospects go beyond academics. They can experience a vast array of activities and discover their own interests and balance between social, emotional and educational needs. Social responsibility programmes from our primary school’s Eco School Project to the secondary school’s collaboration with the Yangmingshan National Park are just the tip of the iceberg to learning to do well by doing good.
Focus on Wellbeing
Every student is looked after and supported in every aspect of their school life. Wellbeing for all is essential for our section. Our pastoral care programme supports and promotes the development of empathy, social and emotional skills for all to feel good and to do well.
As all recent studies show, speaking another language gives remarkable advantages in life; be they cognitive, economic, social, cultural as well as healthful. The French section with its bilingual French - English curriculum aims to develop multicultural and bi-literate individuals who will make a difference in tomorrow's world.
Chinese Language Programme
The school takes great pride in the development of Chinese Language for the different levels of Chinese speaking students across all school sections. We incorporate the traditions and culture of our Taiwanese host nation to deliver an authentic Chinese language experience.
Accomplishments and Successes
Students consistently get amazing IBDP and French Baccalaureate results year after year. Our students matriculate in top colleges and universities and take courses that fit their talents, interests and future goals.
Accreditations Across all Curricula
Each section is fully accredited through national or international accreditation bodies. (French accreditation, IB, college matriculation)
