All Aboard English Academy is a private English language school located in Tianmu, a centrally located area of Taipei City, Taiwan. Our school implements a research-backed United States standards based curriculum that blends English language arts with the needs of English language learners in a foreign country (EFL). Our students range in age from 4 to 17 and come from public and private schools all over Taipei. We believe in providing an environment where students receive a lot of individual attention, so there are no more than 6 students per class, allowing for a great deal of teacher-student interactions, as well as peer-to-peer collaboration. We strive to provide not only the best English education in Taipei, but also to encourage the emotional and social development of children at our school. We believe that each child is unique and has individual needs that we work to meet as we set students up to be lifelong learners and independent thinkers.
