Welcome from CEO
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school. This website will hopefully assist you in learning a little more about our school and the wonderful but unique educational programmes we have on offer for our 1,700 students.
TES is distinctly different from other international schools in that we operate four independent sections under one European roof. Our French, German and British sections offer the choice of their respective European national curricula for students aged 3 to 14 years. Our High School allows all three sections to merge together and for the first two years students undertake the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) or French and German co-qualifications. The final two years of High School culminate in the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB).
Our growing reputation and image in Taiwan and across Asia has seen demand for places reach record levels, particularly in our High School. We are hugely proud of the fact that our graduating students consistently win places at universities that are among the best across the world.
We are very proud of our status as a non-profit organisation, as all funds generated at the school are reinvested into supporting the school's further development of teaching and learning. At TES we pride ourselves on the personal knowledge and experience we have with each of our children and their families.
We feel that this “school as a village rather than a city” approach is best for our students, as in a village everyone knows each other and works together for the benefit of the entire community. For this reason, enrolment growth will be carefully controlled into the future so that we will always be in a position to personally know and support each of our students.
We are extremely grateful for the support and commitment from our Board of Directors, most kindly and ably led by Dr C.V. Chen and from our various Governors and parent groups across the school. Local and international companies and individuals have also played a major part through donations and sponsorship of our capital development projects. We thank them and all our sponsors for their continued support.
Once again, welcome to our school and I trust that you will enjoy learning more about the exciting and rewarding opportunities that exist as a student, parent, staff member, alumnus or friend.
