Hong Kong International School

Self-motivated learning
Beloved by the American expat community, HKIS, founded in 1966, is open to all nationalities and faiths. Their focus is on “academic excellence, spirituality, character development, self-motivated learning, Chinese culture, and contributions to society.” They offer a two-stream Chinese programme, (Mandarin as a second language or Mandarin for near-native speakers) alongside the traditional High School Diploma.  Students go onto top Universities locally, in the US and the UK.  The campuses in Repulse Bay and Tai Tam have state of the art facilities with robotics labs, design spaces, purpose built music and art centres, as well as the full suite of sports pitches, athletics tracks and swimming pools.
