We aim to prepare the next generation to face the uncertainty of the future through basic education; to educate children standing on the shoulders of giants and develop all-round abilities with a consolidated syllabus and rich and complete educational resources. We would like our students to acquire lifelong learning skills and achieve learner autonomy, to become a multi-domain leader with a broad knowledge on different subjects; allowing our children to enjoy a happy and successful life and shine on the world stage.
I often tell entrepreneurs that attitude is the most important attribute to be considered when employing a person, and early education is the key period in personality development. As Confucius said, character development must take precedence over education. This is truer than ever in the Digital Age in which many jobs will disappear. Therefore, children must be taught how to learn quickly and adapt effectively.
Dr. Casper Shih
Dr. Shih's Educational Philosophy
While running for the presidency, American educational philosopher John Dewey said, “Teaching today’s students in the way of yesterday is to deprive them of a better tomorrow.” As such, we must attach importance to and change “the method of learning, the speed of learning, and the meaning of learning,” and redefine the purpose of education as:
To cultivate learning skills: the ultimate goal of education is to guide students in acquiring lifelong learning skills.
To cultivate EQ and compassion: according to Confucius, a noble person respects one’s parents, loves one’s family, shows appreciation and respect, and is honest and trustworthy.
To cultivate creativity: because the emphasis on creativity and conceptual thinking is the key to survival in the future.
To cultivate people who know how to enjoy the meaning of life: those who do will naturally not do anything to harm the meaning and purpose of life. Such a person must be affectionate and virtuous
To cultivate students fluent in Chinese, English and Programming Language, allowing broader learning, better communication, integrating the world with humanities and technological literacy
Student teacher ratio of 10:1, enabling a better learning experience.
Adventure week: The tenth week of every semester is our Adventure Time. Students will set foot on ecological corners spreading across Taiwan, combined with various themes and topics, creating unique and unforgettable memories.
