Introduction to Chiayi Campus 馬禮遜嘉義衛星學校介紹
The Chiayi Satellite School is part of the Morrison Academy school system. This small school comes under the supervision of the larger Taichung campus. Morrison Academy Chiayi (MACY) exists to meet the educational needs of missionary children living in the area. MACY seeks to give every student a quality, biblically-integrated education, so that each one will be equipped to impact the world dynamically for Christ.
The Chiayi Satellite School was in operation from 2002-2010 to meet the needs of missionary families living in the area. A resurgence of missionary families in the area allowed for the reopening of the satellite school August 2018. The satellite offers instruction to students from grades one to eight. Instruction is divided into three multi-grade classes, providing a very special environment with low teacher-student ratio. After grade 8, students will normally be allowed to transfer to the Taichung campus.
Multi-grade classrooms are found throughout the Western education system. Scholarly studies have shown that multi-grade students perform as well academically as single-grade classroom students. Teachers of multi-grade classrooms list flexibility, re-teaching, and pre-teaching opportunities, positive role modeling, independent work skill development, and lower disciplinary interventions as benefits of the multi-grade room.
Students at Morrison are given the opportunity to learn and experience a rigorous and challenging curriculum that prepares them for an ever-changing world. Morrison seeks to provide a positive learning environment for each student by focusing on both group learning and individual development. Students will obtain the knowledge and skills to be effective communicators and critical and creative thinkers. To learn more about Morrison, please visit the school website.
