Head of School's Welcome & Background
HEAD OF SCHOOL'S WELCOME
Welcome to Taipei American School’s website, where we will attempt to show you how our dynamic, multicultural, and compassionate community members learn and grow here.
I am delighted to introduce myself to you as Taipei American School’s Head of School. I am honored to serve TAS, and I am filled with optimism for the future of the school and the impact our students and graduates will have on the world.
We proudly offer the best of the American-based system to an international population most of whose members are already multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic searchers of the best of internationalism.
We are a bridge that leads people from self to selflessness, from individuality to interdependence, and from the finest classrooms of a top independent school to success in the world beyond our borders. We value honesty, respect, responsibility, kindness, and courage and the education of the whole child.
As the Head of School, I, too, look forward to serving this amazing community as a bridge, a bridge from one historic chapter under Dr. Hennessy to a new, chapter. As a Taiwanese-American woman, I also look forward to serving as a bridge between cultures and languages.
Please peruse our website and listen and learn from the perspectives and stories herein. If there is one thing you need to know about Tigers, it is that any challenges that we have faced and will continue to face will be met head-on with both grit and grace. If you are looking for a new community to call home, as either a parent, student, or educator, I know you have made an excellent choice in choosing TAS. I hope you enjoy reading, watching, and engaging with our website.
Dr. Grace Cheng Dodge
Head of School
