Bilingual Educational Options

Major cities in Taiwan offer a variety of educational options for people relocating from overseas, and there are a number of international schools or schools with bilingual education (English and Chinese) available where we are located.

In Hsinchu, most of our global talents send their children to the International Bilingual School at Science Park (IBSH), a prestigious and highly selective public school established in 1983. The school follows the Western curriculum in preparing students to continue their college education in US, Canada or Europe. IBSH is a member of WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and has reached excellent achievements academically. For example, the median GPA of class 2013 is 3.60 out of 4.00. The average scores of the class 2013 are as follows:

SAT Average Score, class of 2013 (Full: 800)
Subject Critical Thinking Math Writing
IBSH 629 710 664
USA 496 514 488

The following table shows the comparison on the SAT scores of IBSH and a top school in California, USA to further present the academic strength of IBSH:
