Description of school
TES is distinctly different from other international schools in that we operate four independent sections under the one European roof. Our German, British and French Sections offer the choice of their three different European national curricula for student aged 3 to 14 years. Our High School Section 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 (IB) Diploma.
Our growing reputation 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 graduates consistently win places in universities that are among the best across the world.
We firmly believe that our students develop admirable qualities of cultural understanding, compassion, empathy and tolerance through their daily life at school which is focused on its mission of "promoting European culture and values within the context of Taiwanese society." Our mission also has a strong emphasis on "educational excellence" where we encourage students to strive to develop to their full potential - not just academically but in a much broader sense through the many cultural, community, artistic, sporting and charity activities that feature prominently in our extra-curricular calendar.
TES continues to receive very positive and encouraging reports from inspection agencies from Germany, Britain and France and in 2011 we were granted full accreditation from two of the world's leading accreditation bodies : the Council of International Schools (CIS) based in Europe and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) based in the USA. This joint accreditation provides further evidence to our stakeholders of our commitment to excellence.
We are very proud of our status as a not for profit organisation as all funds generated at the school are turned back into supporting the school's further development of teaching and learning. At TES we pride ourselves on the personal knowledge we have of each of our children and their families. We feel 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.
