Educational Prospect and Goals



Schools background


Due to the ideality of art education, Kaohsiung Chung-Hwa School of Arts was born, located beside Kaohsiung city arts museum in Nei-Wei-Pi Cultural Park Area southern Taiwan. Within a series of experience and striving processes, the school has faithfully reflected the entire Taiwan environment, as a mirror, to cognitive attitudes toward art education and the value of land use.

Twenty years ago, adapting the industrial area to a cultural one, the decision to reform an industry school, founded for over thirty years, to an art school, insisted on the very education of humanities and arts. That was the reason why the school assembled groups of gifted students and teachers altogether, sharing similar genes of potential and talents in diverse areas of arts and showed the aptitude and enthusiasm on this stage of arts.

In addition, owing to the geographical position, located in the cultural area, Chung-Hwa School of Arts firmly transacts education of humanities and arts and reply out loud to the challenges from land protection as well.


The school is never afraid of difficulties, always holds onto the initiate intention, creatively forges ahead to art education and opens a window for humanity practice which leads to continuous managements. It will be a stage full of creating opportunity.




The former of Chung-Hwa School of Arts were “Kaohsiung Chien-Kung Senior Tuition School”, “Kaohsiung Chien-Kung Industrial Vocational High School” and “Kaohsiung Chien-Kung High School”. The founder, Mr. Fu-Cheng Lu, founded the school with donation in 1950 and it is the most age-old private school in Kaohsiung history.


Our founder, Mr. Lu who was born in 1911 studied abroad in Japan in his early age and returned home after serving many years in Japanese industrial business.  On the basis of his enthusiasm to industry education, he founded Kaohsiung Chien-Kung Senior Tuition School with little savings by himself and set up Mechanical Drawing Department and Mechanical Engineering Department.


Mr. Lu worked as a principal and a teacher as well. After that, the school gained superior achievements so that it won praises and supports again from the ministry of education; therefore, being upgraded to “Kaohsiung Chien-Kung Industrial Vocational High School” in 1953. Besides, not until 1962 did the school reform as “Kaohsiung Chien-Kung High School” because of the governmental policy for general education. Later on, a daughter of Mr. Lu, Mz. Hui-Mei Lu took charge of the School Board. Concerning the spirit and connotation of art education benefit the realization of a harmonious society and inspire sensibility, spiritual and creativity of individuals, in 1988, the school reformed to Kaohsiung Chung-Hwa School of Arts which inherits ideality and spirit of the founder for school operation.


In the early years of Chung-Hwa School of Arts, Kaohsiung city government programmed Nei-Wei-Pi area as a cultural area in the rescheduled section 44. Been through the ten-year crisis and agony that the school land was prohibited by law from construction and was levied, the School Board asserted nonstop to protect the school from the local authorities to the central ones and thus, the declarations had been accumulated up to a great deal of pages. To maintain the existing school land, let art education be rooted in this place.           
Regardless of the benefits, in 1986, the School Board requested the city government to modify the school land in the rescheduled section for residence and business to a land for school use, insisting on transacting art education with strong determination. Once in 1997, all school teachers and students went to the city hall, sitting quietly to protest our rights; in the end, the city government ceased the crisis of prohibition for construction for many years.

In the same year, due to the legalization of the Art Education Law and according to its regulations, Chung-Hwa School of Arts first set up its affiliated junior high school and elementary school in 1999. Looking forward to cultivate the generation of citizens with creativity, integration, abilities of thinking and problem resolving in the global, informational, multiple and democratic trend.

In the atmosphere of the whole Taiwanese education of humanities and arts, it’s much more precious.


Chung-Hwa School of Arts is the only cross-field comprehensive school of humanities and arts. Every senior high students are able to take courses different from their own among departments and in this omnifarious artistic environment, they are unobtrusively influenced. Their creativity, imagination, comprehension and cultivation of creative thinking are incomparable to that of single art class affiliated in public schools or other vocational schools. The unique advantages lead a learning fashion of the future field interflow and concept of digital platform. This also urges our school to recommend the traits actively to the public and further, an impetus source penetrates into communities and daily life of citizens’.


As to the elementary school, based on the ideas for putting broad senses of education of humanities and arts into the Compulsory Education and also considering international environment, many-sided needs and the importance of ministry promulgated curricula, our school combines English and arts with the ministry promulgated curricula with the entire projects of the three-in-one direction.
