Hong Kong International School is one of the leading private schools in Hong Kong. It’s a fully accredited school by the Western Associate Schools and Colleges education governing body where the American-style national curriculum is applied through its education system. Students of expatriates, locals and alike can assure that their children will receive quality education where students will be individually focused on areas they are lacking or need to improve at. Students will not be taught to memorize; we strive for the students to learn critical thinking where they will grow up learning to make good decisions, consequences of their own actions – hence, our education not only focusing individual subjects but we also emphasize the process of focus and self-control so students can learn to solve problems on their own and set and follow through on goals regardless of subjects or interests they like.


Since 1966, Hong Kong International School offers education form students from the pre-kindergarten all the way to Grade 12 (16-18 years old). There are over 2,800 enrolled across 40 different nationalities makes HKIS truly a unique and diverse school.
