Introduction to Chiayi Campus
The Chiayi Satellite School was in operation from 2002-2010 to meet the needs of missionary families living in the area. A resurgence of missionary families in the area allows for the reopening of the satellite school August 2018. This satellite school offers grades one to seven beginning in August 2018 and will expand to grades one through eight in August 2019. Instruction is divided into multi-grade classes, providing a very special environment with a low teacher-student ratio. After grade 8, students are guaranteed a transfer to the Morrison Academy Taichung Campus where there is an excellent high school boarding program.
Multi-grade classrooms are found throughout the Western education system. Scholarly studies have shown that multi-grade students perform as well academically as single-grade classroom students. Teachers of multi-grade classrooms list flexibility, re-teaching and pre-teaching opportunities, positive role modeling, independant work skill development, and lower disciplinary interventions as benefits of the multi-grade room.
Students at Morrison are given the opportunity to learn and experience a rigorous and challenging curriculum that prepares them for an ever-changing world. Morrison seeks to provide a positive learning environment for each student by focusing on both group learning and individual development. Students will obtain the knowledge and skills to be effective communicators and critical and creative thinkers. To learn more about Morrison, please visit the school website.
