First established in 1990, Taipei European School is a co-educational international school located in Taipei, Taiwan. The school was founded with the intention of providing French, German and British-style schools for ex-pats and local citizens, with these three schools originally being developed independently of each other, before eventually being incorporated under the same roof by 1992. Since its founding, the school has seen extensive redevelopment and modernisation, including a brand-new campus development completed in 2007, along with a range of modern sports facilities completed in 2015. In addition to this, plans exist for further development of a secondary school campus in 2016. Due to this long-term investment, the school is able to boast of a wide range of modern teaching and recreational facilities. In terms of curriculums, as Taipei European School seeks to provide instruction in a large number of different European curriculums. Three separate streams exist for both primary and secondary education, namely French, German and British streams. The British stream utilises iGCSE and International Baccalaureate examinations. French and German streams attend bilingual classes with the British stream and take both iGCSE/International Baccalaureate and national examinations should they choose to.
