Welcome to the American School in Taichung (AST)!
We are so pleased that you have made the decision to have your child/ren attend AST. Clearly, you value top quality education and academic rigor. I think you will be very pleased to find out that AST is also very much a family and we treasure community. As soon as you enter the stunning school campus, you will feel comforted by the warm smiles and greetings from students, staff and faculty.
AST is committed to providing our students with an excellent 21st century education in a safe and caring environment. We accomplish this by employing highly skilled and caring professionals who challenge our students through high, but attainable, expectations. Our curricular and extra-curricular programs provide a rich and robust learning environment that our students thrive in. Our students, and teachers, love coming to school!
At AST, a strong sense of community is something we very much cherish. As the proverb goes, it takes a village to raise a child and we believe our school community is that village. We greatly encourage collaboration amongst students, teachers, parents and administration and see this collaboration as the foundation to establishing an optimal learning environment.
Again, we are excited that you have joined our AST family, and please feel free to stop by or get in contact with us should you have any questions or concerns.
