LETTER FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
Welcome to I-Shou International School!
As superintendent of I-Shou International School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome each of you to our school website!
I-Shou Int'l School is a renowned leader in international bi-lingual education with its focus on 21st century skill development through student centered inquiry based teaching and learning, and innovative programs. Founded in 2004, we currently enroll approximately 600 students. As an IB Continuum school (PYP, MYP, and DP) accredited by the Council of International Schools and Taiwan's Ministry of Education, we simultaneously offer the Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma programs for our students. Collaborative support for our school programs is maintained through regional and international partnerships with leading schools, universities, and prominent international educational organizations.
We are proud of the highly competitive national and international university admissions secured by our internationally minded learners in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, Taiwan, and elsewhere. As of August 2022, we have introduced a dual track model for grades 7-12 that will allow students the optimum time to develop their skills in that particular language of instruction and provide the students with opportunities to build a "super-curricular profile" that best fits their career and university choices.
Our co-educational residential program for Grades 6-12 students, housed in state of the art facilities, fosters student growth and a sense of community within a family atmosphere; a vibrant extracurricular program for grades 1-12 provides students with a valuable dimension for student exposure to a wide array of sports, activities, and club options.
A spirit of renewal and excitement pervades the school as a variety of school improvement initiatives has fueled school growth and development in the areas of Maker Education and Design Thinking, robotics, STEM activities, the incorporation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into school programs and activities, and a systemic data driven focus on student and school performance across grade levels and departments.
We constructively shape the trajectories of students' lives, expanding their possibilities for success as lifetime learners and global citizens, while seeking to shape their minds and touch hearts through our stellar academic, activities, and service learning programs.
I-Shou International School maintains a warm, caring, safe, and orderly learning environment for our children with sensitivity to the needs of each child . Our dedicated and experienced faculty, staff, and admin teams are positive, energetic people who have high expectations for themselves and our students. With a continued focus on the highest standards of teaching and learning, the growth and success of I-Shou students is our single top priority!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, or would like to hear more about our school.
We stand ready to assist you in any way possible.
Dr. Peter Nanos
