Introduction


Our Mission

The mission of the International Bilingual School at Tainan-Science-Park is to serve the bilingual needs of the international community found at the Southern Taiwan Science Park, and to motivate and prepare our multicultural students to become collaborative, creative individuals who think critically, communicate effectively, and become, as a result, lifelong learners and productive members of the global community.

Our Vision
In partnership with parents and the community, IBST will inspire, support, and nurture our multi-cultural students to be well-educated and empathetic global citizens.

School and Community

One of the high tech Science based industrial Parks in Taiwan, the National Nanke International Experimental High School (NNKIEH), resides in the Southern Taiwan Science Park. Founded in 2006, NNKIEH endeavors to ensure a good academic environment for the children of both the Science Park employees as well as overseas-hire high tech professionals. NNKIEH, a public,multicultural, co-educational school serving grades 1 – 12 consists of four departments. Three of the departments serve the local Chinese-speaking students and uses the Taiwan (R.O.C.) national curriculum while the Bilingual Department (the International Biligingual School at Tainan-Science-Park or IBST) serves  students in the English-speaking community who seek an American college-preparatory education. IBST parts include those employed in tertiary education, business, science and medicine, and technology. Eighty-three percent of Bilingual Department parents holds advanced degrees. Out of a total NNKIEH school enrolment of 2348, 109 students from 14 nationalities attend IBST.
