Dear HAS Community,


I am extremely excited about the 2022-2023 school year, as well as moving forward in the future. We have a number of excellent new teachers, and I’m excited about the new students joining our school. Not only is this our 18th year, the school continues to undergo steady improvement in the areas of instruction, extra-curricular activities, and facilities. I am certain this will be one of the best years in the history of the Hsinchu American School.


We just completed plans to move our school for the start of the 2023 school year. I am very excited about our new facility and know this will be a seminal moment in the school’s history.


We are also excited here at HAS about continuing to build and improve our lower elementary grades. We have had increasing enrollment in these grades over the past couple of years, and I am certain this will continue. We have an excellent returning staff of highly motivated elementary homeroom teachers, as well as new hires,  who will continue to bring a great deal of excitement and energy to the continuing design and creation of this program. 


The Hsinchu American School has a great future ahead of us. I wish to thank all the parents, students, staff, and teachers who make our school special.
