ABOUT HSINCHU AMERICAN SCHOOL
Hsinchu American School was established to meet the educational needs of international students, enabling them to be successful in a post-secondary English based program.
Located in scenic Hsinchu, the Silicon Valley of Taiwan, one of the leading knowledge-based economies of Asia, our school has emerged as the only fully licensed international school to grade 12 in the area, due to the concerns from the professional community for an international school that can meet as well as exceed the expectations of the global community represented here.
Hsinchu American School is a co-educational and college preparatory international school licensed by Taiwan Ministry of Education and by Hsinchu Education Bureau serving grades 1 through 12. It is registered with the American Institute in Taiwan and received a six-year accreditation term from Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in June, 2015. The school received an additional six-year term in June of 2021.
