Hsinchu International School Questions?

Postby driftwork » Mon Mar 12, 2018 09:31

I’m hoping to connect with some parents who are sending their children to Hsinchu International School. We are thinking about relocating to Hsinchu and would like some first-hand information about the school, the admin, teachers and your experience sending your kids there. Any help or information would be great. If you have private information, please feel free to PM me. I would also love to hear from any teachers who have or currently teach at HIS.

Thanks :)

My second son graduated from there a few years ago. He was there for grades 9-12.

It's a K-12 school which I really like. We had good experiences with all but one teacher but that was due to immaturity (and stupidity) on his part, not the school's fault.

Nice facilities, after school sports and other activities for the kids. It's a very small school so it's not as competitive as TAS or TES, and not as polished (neither important to me anyway) but I liked the attention give to each child.

What grade is your child going into?

We have a six year old and an eight year old. Ultimately, we'd like to enroll them in an international school in two years.

I believe there is another intl school there called IBSH, if you want to compare between the two.
