Kaohsiung - Post Report Question and Answers
What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?
I taught at Morrison Academy Kaohsiung, a K-9 school, and it is a wonderful school. The staff are cohesive and hard-working, and genuinely love the students. It's the first school I've been at where kids cry because it's summer vacation. They love it so much they don't want to leave. The other major international school is Kaohsiung American School, which offers classes from K-12. It has had mixed reviews in the past, but I've heard it's improving. There are other "bilingual" international schools, but none that are currently accreditated by WASC. Many of them are major money-makers, and parents need to check them out carefully. Personally, I wouldn't send my kids to any of these. - Aug 2011
