School Overview: This international school has attracted regional and worldwide attention with its unique model for integrating British, French, German and High School sections in terms of their curricula, administration, finance, buildings and facilities. The school has grown steadily since its establishment and now has 1,700 students of some 50 nationalities with a target enrolment of around 1,800. The school operates from two campuses with well-appointed, modern facilities and has a total staff of around 400. Teaching staff come predominately from the UK, France and Germany with smaller numbers from other European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA. Class sizes are maximum of 22 in the British Sections with smaller classes across the High School and in the IB Diploma and French and German Sections in particular. The mission of the school is to provide educational excellence and European culture and values within the context of Taiwanese society.

Location Overview: The people of Taiwan are extremely friendly and, as a city, Taipei is a relatively safe place and although a bustling city, the school is located in the northern fringes of the city where the pace is less busy. You can use the MRT (high speed rail), buses and taxis confidently. English is more widely spoken amongst the younger proportion of the population but if you are looking lost, most people will try to help you! Learning a few words of Chinese goes down very well with the locals. There is a lot going on in Taipei and most parents and staff lead an active social life either in the northern suburb of Tienmu (close to where the school is located) or downtown where there are many nightclubs, concert halls, theatres and restaurants.
