Taipei Kuei Shan School is an International Baccalaureate World School offering three programmes - PYP, MYP, and DP. It is fully accredited by the Taipei City Government Department of Education and a member of the Association of Christian Schools International.
Kuei Shan was established in 1963 as a K-9 school, founded by Professor Hsiong Hui-Ying as a research project to improve Taiwan Education. Many decades ago, education in Taiwan was a "one-size-fits-all" approach. To allow a holistic development of learners, Professor Hsiong built Kuei Shan as a small school environment with smaller class size to promote active learning, both academically and socially. She practiced the use of unit teaching and theme-based learning to engage students in hands-on and collaborative learning activities. Upon the success of this long-term research, the school continues its commitment to educational research and excellence.
In 2015, the high school program was added, and Kuei Shan’s first DP cohort graduated in 2017. As a small private school, we provide a lively campus community for more than 700 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 by blending educational excellence and an international perspective with Christian values. About 80% of our student body are Taiwan nationals and 20% are from over 15 other countries.
Kuei Shan's mission is to provide holistic education that is Biblically inspired, academically rigorous, socially friendly, and globally and culturally responsive. Students will be equipped to experience TRUTH:
Transformed: by the renewing of the mind
Rigorous: academic pursuits
United: life-giving community
Twined: heritage with globalization
Holistic: balanced development
Activities and Service
Our six cohorts (2017-2022) earned Diploma mean grade and average total points above worldwide average. Students are currently attending four-year universities in various regions - Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, the U.K., and the U.S.
At Kuei Shan, we celebrate our distinctive place in PreK-12 education - where teaching, learning and faith guide the mind in understanding the complex diversity of God's creation, equip them to experience T.R.U.T.H., and prepare the whole person for service and leadership.
