Chung Dau Bilingual Elementary School in Zhuangwei Township, Yilan County is located in the beautiful Lanyang Plain. The school is located in the middle of the rice fields. The children in Chung Dau can enjoy the fresh air, walk in the pure countryside, look at the Mount Dasyue and watch the stars at night, and cultivate the positive energy of encouragement and enthusiasm.
Dr. Chen Huang , the founder of Chung Dau Bilingual Elementary School, has set “Quality, Style, Innovation, and Excellence” as the core values for the founding of the school. The vision of Chung Dao is “Bilingualism is good, and Chung Dau is the world”. It is the goal of the school to cultivate the elite of future leaders, to enhance the bilingual ability of students, and to give them the confidence to go to the international stage. “Two Arts, Two Sports, One Classics, Whole English, and International Education” is the school-based curriculum, which is in line with the unlimited learning possibilities of bilingual education. Therefore, the school emphasizes basic knowledge, humanistic connotation, international literacy, and care for the place where they grow up. In the curriculum planning, special emphasis is placed on quality teaching of English, classical Chinese literature and reading, scientific exploration and research, art enrichment, life education and counseling care.

The school has established five core values of character: “honesty, respect, caring, law-abiding, and politeness” and seven good habits for leaders: “taking initiative, clear goals, prioritizing, win-win thinking, knowing one’s enemy and self, innovation, and continuous improvement”. Through the teachers’ example, value clarification, theoretical discussion, behavior regulation and guidance, service learning, and self-motivation, the students will develop the correct cognitive, affective, and behavioral approaches.
二、中文經典課程(Chinese Classics Program)
The Chinese curriculum not only follows the Ministry of Education’s 12-year Basic Education curriculum to develop basic Chinese language skills, but also has 240 classical Chinese poems and classics selected by Dr. Bang Jen Chen, the chairman of the board, for grade-specific study.
三、全英語與國際雙語課程(ESL and International Bilingual Programs)
Our ESL program is based on the bilingual education model of USA and Singapore, and is arranged to suit the needs of students who are well acquainted with a second language in their home country’s education system, as well as for students who have lived abroad to connect with old experiences. In the 110th school year, we received a grant from the Ministry of Education’s International Education in Bilingual Education and Digital Learning Program to use the CLIL model of teaching to expand its application to the arts and integrative activities, to increase the opportunities for students to use English, and to develop the ability to use digital technology. We also develop the ability to use digital technology, to understand other cultures, to connect with the world, and to expand our international perspective.
四、兩藝雙體課程與社團活動(Two Arts Curriculum and Activities)
In order to cultivate students’ cultural connotation between Chinese and foreign cultures, the school-based curriculum also includes: calligraphy, musical instrument learning,and golf; one course per week for grades 1-6. At the end of each day, we also provide after-school talent learning, such as violin, individual piano instruction, inline skating, table tennis, soccer, badminton, dance, science creation, GO, programming language, and homework guidance, etc., in order to explore students’ multiple potentials.
五、全方位導師與認輔制度(A comprehensive tutor and support system)
In order to take care of the students’ learning and growth, we adopt a small class teaching system with less than 32 students in each class, and adopt a dual tutor system. The Chinese class instructors are the main instructors; the English group classes are led by foreign teachers and supplemented by native English teachers. Each student is assigned an approved teacher at the time of admission until graduation to take care of the student’s learning and adaptation to life, and a class contact network is set up for each English and Chinese class, so that teachers can contact parents in a proper manner and let the students grow up happily with love and care.
六、生活與課業輔導並重的住宿生活(Residential life with guidance for both living and schoolwork)
In order to serve parents in Northern Taiwan who are unable to take care of their children at all times due to work, we provide dormitories for students who come from far away. The residential students are provided with daily evening tutorials (8-12 students per teacher depending on their grade level), and tutors are also assigned to provide guidance on self-care and care for their children in order to develop their independence.
七、專業的教師團隊(Professional Teaching Team)
Our administrative team is comprised of a team of experienced teachers with academic and administrative qualifications from both Taipei cities. Dr. Li-Feng Kao, the current Vice President, has 35 years of service in the education field in Taipei City and has extensive theoretical and practical experience in curriculum planning, bilingual education and international education. The English teaching team is composed of local English teachers certified by the Ministry of Education and quality experienced foreign teachers.
After six years of solid subject matter skills in elementary school, students can be promoted to our bilingual middle school, or to other public or private high schools, or even to study abroad.
The Chung-Dau team brightens a light on children’s learning, develops the innovative value of educational change through the Creative Thinking flipped teaching model, and creates a quality learning environment with the intention of stimulating children’s strengths and potential through bilingual innovation and international culture programs, so that they can be internationally competitive in the future.
