In late August, TAS was fortunate to welcome back world-renowned independent school consultant Mr. John Littleford. Mr. Littleford, whose extensive client list includes many of the top independent and international schools in the world, has been visiting Taipei American School for over 27 years.
Student Learning Results
Every spring TAS students in Grades 3-8 participate in the Educational Records Bureau's Comprehensive Testing Program, 4th Edition (CTP4) and Writing Assessment Program (WrAP). Administering the CTP4 and WrAP allows us to compare our students' performance to that of students in other independent private schools. Each grade consistently performs at levels consistent with or above the independent private school norm groups. Our Annual Report publishes the results in detail.
Taipei American School offers upper school students the opportunity to take a full range of Honors, AP, and IB courses or a combination of them, enabling students to tailor the rigor and depth of their education. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in the full IB Diploma Program. The majority of students perform at levels consistent with or above the worldwide averages for each subject exam.
TAS upper school students score considerably higher than national or international averages on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). The national average continues to hover near the 1500 mark for the three sections of the SAT, while the TAS average has exceeded the 1900 mark.
