I need to add the two schools to the list. Huaxing Elementary School in Tianmu and Suntek Elementary School in Tamsui. I believe that to each their own. They were not good fits for me, but it depends on the person. Suntek is has homeroom teacher system with one Taiwanese homeroom teacher and one English-speaking teacher in the classroom. This is just like Yu-Teh and Yu Tsai.
Huaxing Elementary School has no fully foreign teachers on staff. They are all have spent time in a Western country for school, are Taiwanese that were raised in a Western country, or are half Taiwanese. There is currently no one on staff that is on an ARC or APRC. In case you're wondering why that was included, it does mean the working culture is decidedly Taiwanese and requires you to follow Taiwanese cultural norms.

I left Taiwan last year (after teaching at a buxiban for 2 years) in pursuit of a teaching certification and a masters degree. I've nearly got my paws on the first and the masters degree will be started shortly too. My 2 year goal is to get back to Taiwan and try to get a job in one of these private international schools. Do any of you know if they usual hire from people already on the island or at international job fairs like most other IS's?
The school I am most interested in is Taipei American School. I know it's a pretty coveted position for many teachers so I am looking at a few others on the island. American School Taichung also looks interesting to me. Does anyone have experience interview/hiring with these schools or related IS's around the island?
