The campus of Zhuwei High School leans towards the Datun Mountain Range and looks out on the Tamsui River and Guanyin Mountain. Beautiful views surround a campus of 4.6 hectares, and this ideal environment is serviced by a full-range of facilities. As a suburb of the Taipei metropolitan area, the convenient MRT system has brought a fast expansion in the population of Zhuwei. Originally, there was only one elementary school in the area and graduates had to travel all the way to the town center in busy traffic to attend secondary school.The community was in dire need of a secondary school, and petitions were launched to address this need.
To answer the needs of the community and ensure balanced development of education, Taipei County Government approved a plan to build a fourth junior high school, named Taipei County Municipal Zhuwei High School, in the Tamsui area on October 26, 1989. On August 1, 2012, the School enrolled its first batch of high school freshmen, and Mr. Wu Chong-Min was appointed the first principal of this newly upgraded secondary school.
