The Taiwanese Educational System

National Chunan Senior High School
7 Nov 2014 | From YangTing-Fang of Taiwan

YangTing-Fang is a graduate of this high school. She wrote that she bought this postcard among others during her high school graduation in 2008.

The educational system in Taiwan is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education of Republic of China. The school year consists of two semesters. The fall semester begins in early September and runs till late January or early February. Winter vacation typically runs from two to three weeks around the Lunar New Year. Spring semester begins following the Lantern Festival in mid February and ends in early June. From middle school on, many schools hold "optional supplementary classes" during winter and summer vacation as well as after normal school hours.

Junior high school spans grades 7 through 9 and is the last half of compulsory education. Senior high school spans grades 10 through 12, again the main goal of students is to score highly on the national university entrance exams at the end of their third year. The pace is just as, if not more intense than junior high school.
