The Karl Educational Philosophy
We are a high-tech high school providing students with hope and direction while building their confidence and providing them with the tools they need to be successful in life anywhere in the world. At our school, students will learn to think both creatively and critically, develop a lifelong passion for learning with an international perspective and build technical skills to prepare themselves for the future.
I have been involved in education for more than ten years and fully understand how crucial it is to improve the international mobility of Taiwanese students. Since students in Taiwan will need to work with and compete with people from other parts of the world, it is critical that we educate students to prepare them for international collaboration, competition, and mobility. Understanding the international community, developing an international perspective, and becoming a global citizen with a national identity, international literacy, global competitiveness and global responsibility are all very important things for our students to learn.
At the same time, in order to cope with the impact of this era of globalization, we need to make sure children have strong communication, resilience, professionalism, creativity, and ability to apply what they learned onto the real world. Given this modern world of globalization, building skills and enabling international mobility are the primary purposes for establishing Karl International Experimental Education Institute. With the flexibility of experimental education, this institution amends the traditional approach to education and provides a new approach to help children learn foreign languages, grasp a global perspective, volunteer locally/internationally, and gain technical knowledge. We also use a mix of local and international textbooks, different learning methods and multiple assessment techniques to support this new approach. All this gives our students the freedom to choose where in the world they want to work and live.
