Taipei European School (TES) is located in the heart of Taiwan’s capital city. It offers educational excellence, coupled with European culture and values, in the context of Taiwanese society. The simplest way of describing our school is--A piece of Europe in Taiwan.
We are consist of four sections: British, French, German and the High School. It is home to 1,700 students and 400 staff members from 50 different nationalities.
TES is a non-profit organisation that provides quality education for international students from age 3 to 18. The unique nature of our school is founded in its diversity. Around the school, students from different sections can be heard chatting and playing in English, French, German and Chinese all at the same time. In essence, it is the celebration of our differences, but also the love of our commonality, that makes TES such a unique and rewarding place. We are an extended family of multi-nationals linked together by our love of learning.
The capital city of Taiwan (R.O.C.) Taipei City is widely regarded as the political, economic, and cultural centre of Taiwan. Pronounced in Mandarin as Táiběi, the city is located in the northern part of the island in a basin between the Yangming Mountains and the Central Mountains. Consisting of 12 distinct districts, each with its own style and charm, Taipei is an amazingly modern city with an innumerable amount of historical attractions, numerous acclaimed night markets, shopping districts, as well as cultural amenities.
Having witnessed several ethnic amalgamations, an abundance of history can be seen in Taipei. Taiwan has gone through five eras. Aboriginal cultures dominated the initial era. Then came the Spanish and Dutch development, Qing dynasty rule, Japanese colonial rule and Nationalists retreat to Taiwan. Roaming in the streets and alleys in Taipei, the changes tell of the story of Taipei’s historical development.
