Chinese International School

Founded in 1983, the Chinese International School (CIS) seeks stability and innovation while maintaining its reputation as a school with dual-language curriculum and International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum. The school first opened it’s doors more than 35 years ago, with just 75 students and the goal of establishing a dual language education system.

Today there are at least 1,500 students made up from over a thousand different families and consisting of more than thirty different nationalities, at the acclaimed school considered one of the best international schools on Hong Kong Island, with CIS alumni thriving in various institutes of higher learning, and a varied range of professions throughout the world. With it’s long history, the school is well recognised and is even accredited by the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

IB World School in Hong Kong

The school’s mission is to inspire a lifelong love of learning in all of her students: encouraging critical, independent thinking and intellectual curiosity among the student population while still maximising their potential, and promoting the holistic growth of the whole learner. The objective is to prepare students to be ethical, responsible, and contributing members of the worldwide community- eager to make a difference in the world, while simultaneously being respectful of the cultures, opinions, and beliefs of others.

While being flourished by its unique dual-language programme and devoted to achieve academic excellence, CIS also encourages students to be creative, curious, independent, responsible, and compassionate global citizens with the passion to bring great changes to the world.

Ten years after it was initially launched, the Chinese International School begin to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme in 1992. Another ten years after that, CIS became the first International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) school in the whole of Hong Kong.

Connect, Inspire, Serve

Chinese International School aims to connect its students, staff, teachers, and parents in the most meaningful, caring and inspiring ways. It also yearns to form a deep comprehension and appreciation towards cultural and language differences by encouraging interaction between students and teachers in the dual-language environment.

CIS inspires students to achieve their full potential by challenging them to balance curricular and co-curricular programmes while also maximising their potential in both Chinese and English languages. CIS helps students in developing humane values and integrity, in which students are then motivated to inspire their peers with their actions and decisions. CIS wishes to serve students and their parents as a school that has full commitment to service.
