Senior High Department
Since the academic year of 2011-2012, the Senior High Department has started to recruit four classes of 30 students. All classrooms are purposely designed to be subject-based to create a more productive learning environment and promote effective instruction. The curriculum design is oriented in the development of students’ multiple intelligence, with the purpose of fostering students’ critical thinking skills and independent research abilities. Every year, students participate in both domestic and international scientific fairs and academic ability competitions, and their achievements have been more than extraordinary. In compliance with the National 1-12 Compulsory Education Law starting in 2014, the “Humanity and Science Class” was created as a featured program that admitted students through the Special Examination Admissions pathway. In the academic year of 2018-2019, the school has taken one step further to create another magnet program called “International Science and Mathematics Class”, which features an experiment-and-research-oriented curriculum to shape students into long lasting NNKIEHers of the science park. Fully utilizing the resources available in the Tainan Science Park, the school has not only extended the teaching beyond classroom but also nurtured a research atmosphere in campus by integrating academic research into the curriculum and inviting high-tech experts and scholars to give science seminars on campus. With its eyes on the future, NNKIEH is in the midst of creating a research-oriented school that meets the needs of our students in an ever-changing and competitive world.
