Welcome to Kaohsiung American School for the 2023–24 school year!

By the middle of the 21st century, today’s students at Kaohsiung American School (KAS) will be the adults who are shaping the world. This gives our educators and parents a great sense of purpose, and emphasizes how important education at KAS today is for our students’ potential. KAS brings global opportunities to Kaohsiung and southern Taiwan, by inspiring excellent holistic learning in a caring environment. Students and parents in our community watch this happening every day.

Seeing our students running into school smiling each morning inspires us to prepare each and every KAS learner to thrive in a rapidly changing and uncertain future. At KAS, eager students, skilled and caring faculty and staff, a dedicated Board of Directors, and supportive and ambitious parents work in partnership with one another. Together, we make KAS a special and rewarding place to learn or to work.

We invite you to join us on our journey of shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Whether you are interested in enrolling your bright and hard-working child at KAS, or joining our team of professional educators, we welcome the opportunity to connect with you. Together we make a BIG difference for KAS students!
