Child Protection Policy

At KAS we believe that every child has the right to a safe and secure learning environment. To ensure the safety of our children and our community, we conduct rigorous background checks on all employees before making a job offer. Candidates will be asked to submit background/criminal checks and at least three references, two of whom must be current or former supervisors that can be contacted and spoken to. In addition, KAS has clear policies and guidelines for child protection as documented in its Child Protection and Community Wellness Handbook.

Teacher Package

There are a lot of great reasons to work at KAS. You’ll be working on a modern campus, with large well-lit, air-conditioned classrooms. The campus is built for technology, from the bus stop to the desktop. You’ll be issued a MacBook computer, with a rapid upgrade cycle based on returning contracts. Professionally, you’ll grow as an educator with regular access to professional development on- and off-campus.

Financially, KAS offers a competitive salary and an increasing longevity bonus, so there’s a good opportunity for savings. The generous teacher package also includes an optional retirement program with school matching, on-campus access to banking and financial planners, and a housing and utility allowance that will allow you to live in one of Kaohsiung’s many desirable neighborhoods near the school, and convenient to dining, entertainment, and shopping.

To get you started off right, KAS provides flight, shipping, and settling-in allowances. And while we hope you never need it, you’ll be covered from the start by Taiwan’s National Health Insurance program, one of the top-rate healthcare systems in the world. Additionally, group and supplemental coverage are offered by the school as needed.

If you’re joining KAS as a family with school-age children, tuition waivers are available for dependents.
