Awakening is the first step towards learning about the world. We must awaken the natural curiosity of our children and nurture their intrinsic motivation to solve problems. Kingston Private School can provide children their very first moment of awakening.
Kingston Private School is a 21st century forward thinking G1-G12 school which incorporates the spirit of Humanism into its learning method. At Kingston, we hope our students can acquire essential knowledge and develop necessary in-demand tools and skills for the world of the future, and form good habits through learning. All of this will help them on their journey after self-awakening.
As well as these basic skills and foundations, the program at Kingston includes the following elements: the development of critical thinking and analytical skills, the practice of the 7 habits of highly effective people, the development of skills to articulate ideas in debates, data compilation and integration, learning skills to conduct research and gather information, and the identification of required project resources to complete tasks.
In addition, it is a crucial mission for educators in Kingston to nurture children’s creativity whilst preserving their originality and ingenuity. We look forward to broadening children’s horizons by building an environment where children can be inspired by new ideas, create new products and form new viewpoints. In such a learning environment, children will have opportunities to learn from mistakes, improve and look forward, thus stimulating their creativity and originality in the long term.
Kingston is the first “Sharestart School” in Taiwan. Mr. Chang Huei Cheng, founder of the Sharestart Teaching Method, holds the position of Director of Education. He has instituted Sharestart’s innovative teaching pedagogy, using a ‘questions and answers” oriented learning to replace spoon-fed learning methods such as multiple choice questions. Under the Sharestart method, curiosity enhances learning. Through the mechanisms of self-taught, independent thinking, panel discussions, and expressing opinions, and under the unifying leadership of the teacher, students are able to achieve their learning goals in every class session. It is corresponded to the trend of education of elites while students surround in a highly collaborative, creative, leaderlike, warm communication, and mutual respect learning environment, and learn the real-life skills. The role of teachers shifts from imparters of knowledge to experiential learning designers, thus allowing students to take charge of their own classrooms!
Students in Kingston will go through a series of awakening processes. We hope that these young students can achieve self-awakening in this early stage of their life thus giving them plenty of time to develop their potential.
As the first school in Taiwan to implement this innovative approach based on the combination of the Satir and Sharestart methods, we believe that Kingston occupies a unique place in the education landscape of Taiwan and can offer things that no other school can. We look forward to welcoming you!
