Peide School 培德书院国际学校

Peide School is a modern academy blending authentic traditional Chinese language and culture with a global perspective. Our unique curriculum is adopted from our parent school, Natural Way School (Taiwan), which has been practicing and researching methods aimed at developing children with Chinese roots and a global view since 1993. Our nature-based teaching provides an aesthetic and meaningful environment where students explore the world and their inner selves. By respecting the rhythm of mother Earth, we find inspiration for our curricular and extracurricular activities. Children play and learn with natural toys collected from the wild, using real life resources that supplement and enrich their classroom time, and build on children’s natural curiosity and desire to explore and learn.
