Peide School 培德书院

Peide School is a modern academy which blends authentic traditional Chinese language and culture with a global perspective. Our unique curriculum is adopted from our parent,  Taiwan’s Natural Way School, which has been practicing and researching methods aimed at developing children with Chinese roots and a global vision since 1993. Our nature-based teaching provides an aesthetically-pleasing and meaningful environment where students explore the world and their inner-selves. By respecting the rhythms of Mother Earth, we find inspiration for both 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 which also build on children’s natural curiosity and desire to explore and learn.
