  History

      The predecessor of the school, Municipal Taitung Girls' Senior High School was founded in 1940, during the war time when Taiwan was still under Japanese occupation. After World War II, Taiwan was retroceded to the Republic of China; consequently, the school was renamed Taiwan Provincial Taitung Girls' High School and started to enroll both junior and senior high level students. In 1968, the junior high sector was suspended due to the implementation of the Extended Nine-year Compulsory Education Project. In July 1970, the school was renamed Taiwan Provincial Taitung Girls' Senior High School. Afterwards, in February 2000, the school was renamed National Taitung Girls' Senior High School and shifted into a comprehensive high school beginning from 10th grade level.

  Features

1.   Well-qualified Faculty: More than 65 percent of our 67 full-time teachers hold Master's degrees or equivalent in-service training certificates awarded in their fields. Moreover, two teachers hold doctoral degrees in Chinese Literature. Inherent among the faculty is the belief that all students are endowed with special talent and teachers' endeavors and enthusiasm in teaching make a difference. The student/faculty ratio is roughly 12:1.

2.   Industrious Students: Annually, TGSH enrolls about 275 students from local junior high schools. With 9 classes for each grade level from 10th to 12th, we currently have a total enrollment of 824 students. Strong emphases have been put on character education and students are encouraged to participate in altruistic or volunteer work. The ambience of industrious learning is pervasive and interacting dynamics between students and teachers are warm and courteous.

 3.  Aesthetic Campus: The campus occupies approximately 75,510 square meters with a well-laid landscape and architecture aimed to incur lasting cultivating effects on its inhabitants.

 4.  Well-functioning Key Units: The school has been functioning well in the true sense of managerial terms — Teachers Association, Alumni Service, and PTA all have been functioning smoothly.

 5.  Distinguished Performance: Last year, more than 93 percent of TGSH graduates passed the College Entrance Exams to become freshmen of colleges or universities. In addition, TGSH has 21 students' clubs divided into 4 categories, including academic learning, fine arts, recreation, and sports. They cover a wide range of interesting activities providing students with ample intramural opportunities to develop their diversified interests and potentials. In recent years, the wind band and school choir have won a lot of titles in different fierce competitions.

 6.  Stressed Character and Moral Education: In order to provide suitable aids in incubating our students to be the ones with elegant disposition, optimistic personality, talents plus virtues, and diverse perspectives, we have thus spared no effort in building up the well-defined foundation for the development of our confident and joyfully-learning TGSH students.

  Principal and His Vision

      Up till now (February 2022), TGSH has experienced 16 principals. The present principal, Mr. Wang, Yin has been in his position for nearly 3 years. Mr. Wang has exhibited competent leadership and steadfast dedication to achieving excellence. His vision for the development of TGSH is that it could become a school of: (A) students well-versed in humanities, natural science, and art literacy (B) clubs excelled in their vigorous diversities (C) remarkable college-admission rate so as to be a school of high academic performance yearned for by local junior high students.

  Courses

      Parallel to the fundamental regulations of comprehensive high schools promulgated by the Ministry of Education (MOE), TGSH has designed and provided a wide range of package courses for students to choose from — courses such as academic natural sciences, academic liberal arts, applied information, applied foreign languages, infant nursing, and fine arts — are all targeted to provide best suitable courses to cater to students' needs. Other than MOE-mandated courses in upper secondary schools, which include general subject courses needed by students to establish a learning foundation for various domains, TGSH has also designed school-developed curricula to highlight the trend of the studies of local culture and history ("localogy  地方學") in recent decades. Accordingly, three required courses "Eyes on Taitung  愛上臺東,"  "Tracing the Origins of Taitung 追本溯源話臺東," and "The Concerto Interplayed Between Humans and the Sea 人與海的協奏曲have been introduced to meet this goal. Aimed to ensure the effectiveness of learning, courses counseling and career path and preparation guidance are also highly stressed and successfully executed in our school.
