Welcome from the Head of the French Section

Welcome to the TES French Section website.

This year, we have almost 390 enrolled in the French Section from Petite Section (3 years old) to Terminale (18 years old). All of our classes, in primary and secondary are accredited by the French Ministry of Education.

Our growing school is at the heart of Taipei European School (TES), alongside the British and German schools, where we benefit from state of the art facilities and resources. We offer our students a unique range of pedagogical choices, giving our pupils access to exceptional teaching and learning. Our students’ results in the French national exams prove it: a 100% pass rate for the French Baccalauréat (86% with honours) and a 100% pass rate for the Brevet diploma (91% with honours).

Our strengths go beyond our students’ academic results.. With a ratio of 8 children per adult, a team of qualified and experienced teachers, art and music programmes worthy of specialised schools, access to international sporting competitions and remarkable IT equipment, the French Section is the ideal environment for a child to grow and develop.

Our School Development Project is based on five key words: ambition, innovation, excellence, multilingualism and care. In keeping with the project, our teaching team has devised a number of tools and learning pathways designed to cater to the learning profiles and aspirations of each of our pupils. The different pathways offered in primary allow you to make the choices that matter for your children’s future. In secondary, our students can take the French national exams (the Brevet and French Baccalauréat), and the British (IGCSE) and international (IB) exams, which gives our students an edge when applying for the best universities in the English- or French-speaking world.

Our French Section is at once ambitious and friendly, international and French, innovative and attached to traditional values, demanding and welcoming. It has its own identity, which I am sure will convince you to make it your French Section of tomorrow.

Please take the time to read through this website and to get to know our school. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries or questions; our administrative team is here for you and happy to assist.
