Dafeng Elementary School was founded in 1898 during the Japanese colonial period. Its name had been changed from Dapinglin Public School to Dafeng Elementary School after Taiwan was restored to the Republic Of China. The school has been dedicated to providing the best of compulsory education since.
The school has 62 classes now. However, it was once a large school with up to 120 classes. Being redrawn by school district lines twice, the school downsized for a better quality of education. Recently, due to the low birth rate, the number of classes has been retained ever since.
Preparing students with good characters is the motto of Dafeng Elementary School. Besides, the school strives to provide students with various experiences to expand students' minds. For example, dated back to 1987, Dafeng has established the choir, orchestra, sport talent class, baseball team, badminton team, and many after-school activities and clubs for students.
To assist students in entering a multicultural and globalized world, Dafeng Elementary School incorporates different approaches and methods in education. Through bilingual courses, students can learn various knowledge from English instruction. The multicultural center enriches students with diverse cultural experiences. The school encourages our urban students to grow vegetables on the school farm and observe the wildlife in the ecological pond to arouse environmental awareness. In addition, to bridge the students to the future world, the school makes a great effort to promote digital learning through extensive tablet usage in and out of classes.
