The Affiliated Senior High School of National Taiwan Normal University (Traditional Chinese: 國立臺灣師範大學附屬高級中學, 附中, 師大附中) (HSNU), is a Taiwanese senior high school (or "high school," as opposed to "middle school" in certain usages). It is ranked second among all the senior high schools in Taiwan, usually with a requirement of PR98 and above on the National Senior High School Entrance Exams. It is also the only co-ed senior high school among the top three in Taiwan. The campus is located in Da-an District in Taipei, Taiwan.
On December 5, 1945, the government of the Republic of China changed the school's name to "Taiwan Third Provincial High School" and then again on January 1, 1946, to "Taiwan Provincial Taipei He-ping High School." Under the name "He-ping High School," the school's purpose was to educate Japanese children who did not return to Japan; at the time, most of the teachers were Japanese.
In 1947, China's political situation changed again. Government administrators' families who had lived in mainland China came to Taiwan, and the government let their children to study at He-ping High School. At that time, Taiwan Provincial Teachers' College (now National Taiwan Normal University) was preparing to establish an experimental high school as a teachers' training ground, so the college applied for the establishment of a new school. On August 1, 1947, He-ping High School became "The Affiliated Senior High School of Taiwan Provincial Teachers' College." There was also a junior high school section. In October 1949, the school took in 310 students from the National Revolutionary Army's Children's School, the largest number taken by a school in that area.
In 1955, the name of the governing teachers' college was changed to "Normal University." In 1961, the junior high school section closed, and in 1967, the teachers' college changed names once again, from "Provincial" to "National;" thus, the high school's name became "The Affiliated High School of National Taiwan Normal University." However, it was not until an associate professor of the NTNU's Education Department, Huang Zhen-Qiu, became HSNU's principal, were the high school and the university closely tied.
The film Blue Gate Crossing portrays school life in HSNU.
The annual graduation ceremony is an event organized and decorated solely by students that have been admitted into university. The team of students adorn the settings of ceremony to a theme, arrange the entertainment programs and shoot their own music videos. This event is reported by the mass media every year.
Under Japanese rule, boys' high school uniforms in Taiwan were similar to military uniforms, khaki from top to bottom. In 1983, HSNU changed the uniform to a light blue button-down shirt with dark blue trousers. The girls' uniform was designed when girls started to enroll in the school's music program. The girls' uniform consisted of a white button-down shirt and a light blue suit skirt (with double folds down the front). The girls' uniform comes with an optional blazer jacket that matches the skirt. Most choose to wear the more comfortable black tracksuit jacket.
In addition to normal classes, there have been experimental classes in HSNU. For example, between 1950 and 1961, HSNU tried a system with a four-year junior high school with two years of senior high school. The experimental science class was established in 1978 (Class 420 and Class 430 were created in the first year). In the year 2004, the Honors English Class (also known as, "English Experimental Class") was established. The first class was Senior High Class 1111.
HSNU's school anthem was composed during principal Huang's era by Shi Wei-Liang (史惟亮, Music Teacher). The text, in Chinese, was written by Guo Tang (郭橖, History Teacher) and Xiao Hui-Kai (蕭輝楷, Compilation Leader).
