Currently there are 22 international schools in Taiwan. A “true” international school as defined by Taiwan’s Ministry of Education requires that the student holds a foreign passport. Note this definition is different from a school that offers an international curriculum and does not require a foreign passport. There are a few schools in Taiwan that fall into this category, which we will cover in Part II of this article.
There are a variety of International schools in Taiwan, American vs Japanese, religious vs secular, and a European school in between. Of the 22 international schools, there are 2 Korean schools, 3 Japanese, 1 European and the rest, American. The Taipei European School is unique in the sense that it is one school with two campuses (lower school upper school) housing three independent schools—The British, French and German section, with each of the sections running its national curriculum respectively. Geographically, there are 8 schools in Taipei, 1 School in New Taipei City, 2 Schools in Hsinchu, 2 in Hsinchu County, 1 in Taoyuan, 3 in Taichung, and 5 in Kaohsiung.
Like death and taxes, one of the world’s few certainties is having to deal with labor laws—especially when you run a business in Taiwan. Whether you’re starting a new company, have a long-established firm, or are simply working as an employee or contractor, there’s no question that you must be vigilant in this area.
Little wonder, then, that we frequently receive questions over issues like labor disputes, employee separation, and remote and contract work. Every situation presents unique circumstances, but we can offer a framework to think about labor issues here.

Normally, I’d say that start-ups fail because they shoot themselves in the foot rather than being destroyed by a competitor. But, if you’re not fearful now, you’re either oblivious, delusional, trying to be contrarian or dumb. All of which do not bode well for your survival prospects. (If you see something that others don’t see, more power to you.)
