和美高中為和美鎮唯一縣立高級中學，位於台中、彰化兩大都市的交界處，設有國中部、國中補校、高中部、高中進修部共四個學制，班級又分為普通班與體育班兩類，而體育班以招收田徑、排球與武術三類專長學生為主。 民國36年成立，當時係臺灣省立彰化中學和美分部，民國45年改為臺灣省立彰化中學暨鹿港中學和美聯合分部，民國46年獨立正式命名為彰化縣立和美初級中學，民國57年實施九年國民義務教育，改名為彰化縣立和美國民中學，民國102年高中部成立，為彰化第五所縣立高中。 本校的學生圖像是培養學生能成為改變地方的「在地領袖」，是一個深刻了解所處地區、深愛地區並且具有國際視野，且不斷的自發學習，利用創新探索能力解決各項問題，將社區帶向更美麗未來的積極實踐者。因此，本校希冀培植國中部學生能具有「自發學習力」、「探索創思考力」、「培德正向力」三項實力，而高中部學生更兼備「宏觀洞察力」四項能力特質之「在地領袖」。 以「編織領袖，共好未來」為願景，希望學生走入社區、認同在地、領導社區，發揮社區高中的功能，使學校課程成為社區特色的重要推手，社區也成為學校的重要資源，相輔相成。讓和高畢業生儲備成為地區或社會領袖的能量，日後以行動回饋學校、地區、社會，啟動正向循環，共好未來。 Introduction of Hemei Senior High School Hemei High School is the only high school in Hemei Township. It is located at the intersection of Taichung and Changhua, two major cities in Taiwan. We have four educational systems: junior high school, junior high school supplementary school, senior high school, and senior high school division of continuing education. The classes in junior high and senior high are divided into regular classes and sports classes, with the sports classes mainly enrolling students majoring in track and field, volleyball, and martial arts. Established in 1947, Hemei Senior High School was initially a branch of Changhua High School under the Taiwan Provincial Government. In 1956, it became the joint branch of Changhua High School and Lukang High School under the Taiwan Provincial Government, and in 1957, it separated from the association and was officially named Changhua County Hemei Junior High School. In 1968, when the nine-year compulsory education was implemented, it was renamed Changhua County Hemei Junior High School. In 2013, the high school department was established, making it the fifth county high school in Changhua County. The goal of our school is to cultivate students to become "local leaders" who can bring about changes in their communities. We aim to develop students who deeply understand and love their local area, possess an international perspective, engage in continuous self-learning, and utilize innovative problem-solving abilities to lead the community towards a more beautiful future. Therefore, we hope to cultivate three strengths in our junior high school students: "self-learning ability," "explorative and creative thinking ability," and "positive character development." The high school students, in addition to these three strengths mentioned above, are expected to possess the fourth abilities of "local leaders": "macroscopic insight." With the vision of "bringing up leaders for a better future," we aim to encourage students to engage in the community, identify with the local area, and play roles as leaders in the community. We strive to make the curriculum an important driving force behind the distinctive features of the community, while the community becomes an important resource for the school, complementing each other. We hope that Hemei High School graduates will become a source of energy for regional or societal leadership and will contribute back to the school, the local area, and society through their actions, thus initiating a positive cycle for a better future.
