Our school was established in August the first, 1956. It was part of Tun-Shan elementary school, and became an independent school in 1963, August the first.
Our school is located at an elevated land where Danshui and Sanzhi meet. The
Datun Mountain guarded the east side, and on the west side one can see the Guanyin
Mountain and the Danshuei River. The Datun Stream runs right through the south side
of school. The environment becomes suitable living area for various kinds of animals
and plants. The geographical advantages also provide us with abundant resources for environmental education.
Our students are mainly from Fan-shi village, Zhong-he village, Xian0xiao village and also Danshui Town center. The parents of the students work mainly as farmers and workers. In recent years, most of the younger generations have moved to the center of Danshui, so the rate of outward migration increased.
Though being a rural school, Zhong-tai gets substantial subsidies from both government as well as other resources. With these subsidies, we have been running vartious after-school clubs to nurture the abilities in multiple disciplines. Our students learn to play the saxphone, the recorder and other percussiono instruments. In addition, the school has a weekly golf program. and coding program for kids, for free.
To summarize, zhong-tai elementary school is a school that emphasize on helping students to have a well-rounded characters, a sense of responsibility, and a heart that cares for others as well as the world. We hope every kids here can grow up happily and have a wonderful life in the future.
