  Abstract: Taiwan is one of the top performing countries at the annual International Physics Olympiad for high school students. Interviews were conducted with three professors from the premier science education university in Taiwan, and school authorities, teachers and students from the top boys’ school and the top girls’ school in the country. Classroom observations of these two schools were also done. The interviews and observations are compiled and analyzed to investigate factors that may have contributed to the success of the Taiwanese. This is done with the intention of providing ideas for improving physics education in the United States of America.
