Question and Answer

  • When will we move? 請問何時遷校

    Detailed building design, permits and quality construction will take 3 years. If all the permits are granted in a timely manner we should be able to move in 2019.

    所有建物的細節設計、執照申請及高品質的施工約需三年。如果所有許可都按照預定時程順利核發的話,我們應該可以在2019年遷校。

  • Where is the new campus located? 新校地在哪裡?

    It’s located in New Taipei City, Linko District, Shin-Lin Section, # 775 lot. Please see map.

    新校地位於新北市林口區新林段775地號: 地圖

  • When can we see the new property? 我們什麼時候可以看到新校地?

    There will be an all-school groundbreaking ceremony, but before that there will be a video on Facebook and tours for the student council & PAC. There will probably also be a community forum and parent survey to make sure everyone’s voice is heard. Several parents and students will also be on the facility planning committee.

    到時將有破土動工典禮,但在這之前我們會將相關影片放在臉書上,學生會與家長委員會也會到現場看場地。也許會進行社區討論會和家長意見調查,以確保學校聽見每一個人的聲音。有一些學生和家長也會被邀請成為設備計劃委員會的成員。

  • Why do we need to relocate to a larger property? 為什麼我們需要搬遷到一個更大的校地

    The Board has heard Bethany parents’ requests for a high school. That is the most compelling reason to search for a larger campus.

    學校董事會已經聽到伯大尼學校家長們對高中部的需求,這是尋找一個較大校地最迫切的理由。

  • Could the high school be on the new campus and K-8 continue in the current location?
    有可能高中部設在新校地,K-8年級繼續留在目前的校址嗎?

    It’s much more efficient for K-12 to share the athletic field, gym, sports field, cafeteria, library, music and language teachers, busing programs, and Principal. Locating all the grades on one campus promotes a family atmosphere (older students helping younger students) and transportation for families with children in several grades.

    K-12年級共同使用學校資源是較符合經濟效益的,如: 操場、體育館、體育設施、餐廳、圖書館、音樂及語文師資、校車、及校長。所有年級在同一個校區同時也能營造大家庭的氛圍 (高年級的學生可以協助低年級的學生),而且方便家長接送在不同年級就讀的孩子。

  • Could high school classes be added in a building close to the current campus?
    有可能在目前學校的附近大樓裡增設高年級的班級嗎

    Quality high school programs require lots of space for athletics and arts. The existing gym and outdoor space is already used to capacity. Sharing facilities and personnel between two small campuses is very inefficient. Also, facilities rental in this area is very expensive.

    優質的高中課程需要許多空間來進行體育和藝術課程。目前的室內運動場及室外空間的使用量已達飽和。兩個小校區一起共用設施及人事資源是非常沒有效率的,此外,目前校址附近的設施租賃費用非常昂貴。

  • Is there any possibility of leasing unused (closed) public school land in Taipei City?
    是否有可能租賃在台北市已不用 (或已經關閉) 的公立學校土地?

    More than 10 years ago, the Board asked the Superintendent to search for leasable property in the greater Taipei area that is at least 6000 ping and accessible by public transportation. During this long period of time we have researched many properties. AIT, AmCham and even the President Office sent letters in our behalf to the Taipei city government. Unfortunately, every one of these overtures ended up with the red tapes in different government offices. Taipei City Mayor Hau is supportive of Bethany staying in Taipei City, but in October 2013 he told us clearly that it’s impossible for Taipei City to close down any public school for a foreign school.

    十多年前,學校董事會要求總校長在大台北地區尋找一筆超過六千坪,且靠近公共交通運輸的租用土地。多年來,我們已經搜尋找了許多土地。美國在台協會、台北美國商會、甚至總統府都曾代表學校致信給台北市政府,但每一次的努力總是在不同的政府單位就停住了。前台北市長郝先生非常支持伯大尼學校留在台北市,但在2013年十月,他清楚告訴我們,台北市不可能爲了外僑學校而關閉任何一所公立學校。

  • What about transportation between this Linko property and current Bethany campus?
    林口新校地和目前伯大尼校區之間的交通情況如何?

    It normally takes within 30 minutes to drive from Bethany to the Linko property. The school would arrange for school bus between Roosevelt Road and Linko. This Linko property is close to the Airport MRT line.

    從伯大尼學校開車到林口新校地通常約需三十分鐘。學校會安排校車往返羅斯福路跟林口之間。林口新校地靠近機場捷運線。

  • What new programs would be offered with a larger campus? 較大的校區可以提供什麼新的課程方案?

    The Taipei high school program would have distinctives similar to the new high school in Kaohsiung. The Kaohsiung Campus will celebrate their first graduating class in 2016. Refer to the online comparison of Taichung and Kaohsiung courses, athletics, performing groups, student life, and scholastic competitions. http://www.mca.org.tw/academics/high-school/overview/

    台北高中部的課程活動將和高雄的高中部類似。高雄校區將於2016年慶祝第一屆高中畢業典禮。有關台中和高雄校區的比較,包括課程、運動項目、藝術團體、學生生活及學業競爭等,請上學校網站查詢。
