Goals The Dominican International School Kaohsiung aims to develop "the whole child." That is, to develop in children an understanding of academic, social, cultural, moral, and physical knowledge as well as skills and values that allow them to grow into effective members of society. Teamwork, respect, dignity and honesty are part of our school ethos. Students will develop critical thinking skills, learn through independent study, and experience cooperative group learning activities. We encourage a yearning for discovery and spiritual understanding within the precepts of the Catholic faith.
