Kaohsiung city stretches from north to south. The downtown of the city is prosperous and thriving.

Our school is founded not only to provide the access to education for the students of SiaoGang District and the neighboring areas but also to promote local prosperity
Our school was founded on July 1, 1992. Tseng, Kuo Kuang was assigned the first principal. There are presently 45 classes in total. In March, 2002, Lee, Hsing Yuan was assigned the second principal. In August, 2008, Yang, Wen Yao was assigned the third principal. In August, 2015, Chen, Chien Ming was assigned the fourth principal.
The fundamental principles are to promote academic studies, develop adaptive education, and practice good discipline.
