The History of HSNU

This school was established in 1937. It was named “Taipei Provincial 3rd High School” in 1937. After the Retrocession of Taiwan in 1945, it was renamed “Taiwan Provincial Taipei 3rd High School” In 1947, its name was further renamed “The Affiliated High School of Taiwan Provincial Normal College.” In 1979, this school was denominated ” The Affiliated Senior High School of National Taiwan Normal University.” The Affiliated Junior High School was founded in the following year. Today, We have 80 senior high classes and 21 junior high classes altogether. Traditionally, the freshmen of senior high school are called “Private,” the juniors are called “Cavalry” and the senior students are called “General” and the whole junior high school students are nicknamed “Recruit”. In this kind of ranking, we are like a family in a castle. Every family member cooperates with each other so that good interactions are generated among students and teachers. By sharing work, members of the family can grow together.

In addition to the cooperation, each school administration does its duties. Take Dean’s Office as an example, we set up Division of Research and Development, Office of Counselors of Student and Office of Art Education to provide students with an ideal environment of acquiring new knowledge and building sound characters. Many of the important school activities, including formal dance held for high school, club activities, graduation ceremony, recreational activities, to name but a few, are projected, prepared and joined by students on their own initiatives. In addition to three major student self-ruling Associations, The Students Association, The Graduates Association and The Clubs Association, students have formed another 48 clubs. These clubs are classified into 6 main categories, including academic clubs, skill-learning clubs, artistic clubs, recreational clubs, physical training clubs and service clubs. Students’ independence and decision-making ability not only our achievement of making efforts to cultivate students’ characters but also that our students highly identify with HSNU.
