About the Location

Pacific American School

No. 307, Section 1, Xinglong Road, Zhubei City, Hsinchu County, 302

Pacific American School is situated in Zhubei – a rapidly expanding city, stimulated by its close proximity to the Hsinchu Biomedical Science Park. New restaurants and retail outlets of all kinds establish themselves here on a seemingly daily basis to cater to the needs of an increasingly diverse local community. Visitors also like to explore historic temples, beautiful public gardens, and the surrounding mountain trails.
The school itself is located along Xinglong Road, one of Zhubei’s major arteries, just ten minutes from the nationally connected High-Speed Rail station. From this hub, the rest of the country is easily accessible with Taiwan’s modern metropolis Taipei reachable in a mere thirty minutes.
