Moreover, it is hoped that indicators of key competences in different subjects can be built up so that key competences for the K-12 grades curriculum could be established being both vertically coherent in different grades and horizontally integrated with other academic subjects. This study adopt document analysis and the Delphi technique as main research methods with particular focus on the relationship between key competences and main subjects in the senior high school curriculum. Three mian conclusions are summarized as follows. First, there is a strong relationship between the key competences and the academic subjects in senior high schools. As a result, the key competences can be further enhanced through senior high school curriculum. Second, some key competence are less highlighted in current senior high school curriculum. Third, senior high school curriculum highlights conventionally on academic subject matters. It is highlighted through the comparison with the key competences that a pedagogic focus on key competences can also be integrated.Furtheromre, based on the above research three recommendations are also proposed. First,the curriculum guildlines for each subjects should be reviewed and modified. Second, six subjects which have not yet analyzed are suggested to be put under review in the near future. Third, more subject experts and practitioners are recommended to be included for more in-depth investigation into the key competences of senior high school subjects.
