About Hsinchu International School (HIS)
Hsinchu International School was the first international school to be established in Hsinchu, and is currently the city's only educational environment for foreign nationals with its own purpose-built campus. With over 30 years experience, HIS truly understands the needs of its students—from the special care required for very young children, to the effective college preparation that has ensured our graduates places in some of the best universities worldwide.
Former HIS graduates have gone on to achieve success at Stanford, Caltech, Oxford, Cornell, Duke, Hong Kong University, NYU, Juilliard and even performing at Cirque Du Soleil.
Besides achieving academic excellence, our emphasis is on providing an atmosphere of friendship and trust, to foster a genuine love of learning, and create a well-rounded personality that is fully prepared to cope with the challenges of today's world.
Hsinchu (which translates as "New Bamboo") is situated on Taiwan's west coast. On-island, it is known as "the Windy City", and the cooling influence of the sea breeze from the Taiwan Strait is particularly welcome to residents in the summer months. The city is a little over an hour's drive from the capital, Taipei, and forty minutes from the Taoyuan International Airport. The home of Taiwan's leading science and technology universities (Chinghua University and Chiaotung University) and associated high-tech research institutes, Hsinchu is a lively city which retains its friendly provincial character. Through the last two decades the growth of the Hsinchu Science-Based Industry Park has been phenomenal, gaining the city an international reputation and considerable prosperity.
As Taiwan's Silicon Valley it continues to expand rapidly. The city's facilities are developing apace, with the establishment of major department stores, culture centers, shopping malls, hotels, parks and leisure areas.
