We are a fully licensed, independent international school which has provided quality education for the children of foreign nationals living in the Hsinchu area since 1981. In 2007 we moved to a fine new purpose-built campus, designed to provide the best educational environment and resources for our students and being able to offer continuous education for students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Our emphasis is on providing quality education in a warm, secure atmosphere of friendship and trust, and in fostering a genuine love of learning, an enquiring mind, and a well-rounded personality. Once a child’s innate curiosity has been aroused, the whole learning process begins; our objective is to extend this process with mutual joy and enthusiasm, to actively involve our students in the world of thought.
Our expectations for teachers and students are high. We set goals to be achieved through motivation, enthusiasm, hard work, and dedication. Academic excellence results from the combination of a well-coordinated, structured program, using well-researched, carefully selected materials implemented by experienced, motivated teachers who are excited about the whole process of educating and developing young minds. Creativity is stimulated both in the regular classes, and through our arts program. Our students continue to achieve awards and recognition in the creative and performance arts. Along with academic and creative progress, our aim is to develop such traditional values as integrity, honesty, self-reliance, adaptability, a sense of humour, and awareness of the needs of others in the local and wider world community.
Our classrooms are bright and stimulating, well-lit and air-conditioned. Class sizes range from 10–20 students with an average student/teacher ratio of 14/1. Our teachers are well-qualified and experienced, coming from Canada, South Africa, Australia, the UK, and the US. Several have been at the school for more than five years. In the younger grade classes, qualified, experienced assistants, many who have been at HIS for over fifteen years, work alongside the homeroom teachers. In 2007, our school moved to a large new campus, designed by a team of school architects and experienced educators and providing a splendid new environment to embody and reflect the vibrancy of our school community and the joy of learning together which is the essence of HIS.
