VICE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Dear HAS Parents and Students,
I am very happy to welcome you all to the 2019-2020 school year at Hsinchu American School (HAS)! This is a very unique and exciting new school year, and we are very happy about the plans we have for the future and the new opportunities for all of us at HAS.
HAS strives to offer students a well-rounded educational experience in all subject areas. We have a strong educational method based around the Common Core System, intricately outlined and catered to each class. The goal of HAS is to prepare students to thrive in today’s world and job market. This means that our students are well-versed in all subject areas from math to liberal arts. HAS also views education as a partnership not only with fellow co-teachers, but with the student’s families as well. This will help to shape them into successful adults in the future.
HAS takes pride in its responsibility to not only teach but mentor students. At HAS, we try to focus on the “whole student” to ensure that they are receiving the best possible educational experience and are well prepared for their adult lives. This means that we not only focus on academics, but we also strive to engage students in other extra-curricular activities and clubs. These activities are designed to encourage a global perspective and stimulate students in more creative ways. The challenging but supportive environment that HAS fosters further prepares the students for successful lives here in Taiwan and abroad.
This is an exciting new year with remodeled facilities and eager new and returning staff members ready to begin their HAS journey with our students. We are anxiously anticipating the exciting experiences to come and educational milestones to be reached over the next few months. Welcome to the HAS family!
