Acton Academy Taipei uses the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. Acton students are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners. We believe children learn best by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tide pool habitat, making a short film, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, Acton students are building real-life skills everyday.
We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (“guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to students’ questions with new questions or a choice. This exchange hones critical thinking skills.
