Syllabus


Dominican International School follows a curriculum that ensures articulation into North American universities. The DIS curriculum also provides students admission opportunities for many other universities internationally, depending on requirements from different countries and universities. In addition, the curriculum is constantly updated to ensure that it meets the needs of the students in Taiwan. The DIS curriculum offers a variety of electives, as well as Advanced Placement (AP) courses for students who would like to challenge themselves academically, and who need AP courses for articulation into European universities.


ELL (English Language Learner) and

EAP (English for Academic Purposes) Programs

DIS offers an ELL program for grade 2-8 and EAP for grades 9 and 10. These programs support students who enter DIS with a need for English proficiency development. The ELL and EAP courses are student-centered and activity- oriented, offering students ample opportunities for listening, speaking, reading, and writing, with a sharper focus on enhancing communication skills. Skills development is aimed at language acquisition and upgrading the student’s English proficiency. ELL/EAP classes also help students with their coursework, but the main purpose of these classes is to support the students’ development of proficiency in English. If standardized testing indicates that a student is not sufficiently proficient in English, s/he will be placed in the ELL/EAP class for support.
