Operating for 21 years, the Japanese International School Hong Kong (JIS) is considered as one of the best international primary schools in Hong Kong. Established in 1997, JIS places great emphasis on creativity and is also known to be a friendly school in a special learning environment.
Japanese International School Hong Kong went through a thorough development process to be accredited as an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School, including an evaluation from IB trained staff.
The big school campus of Japanese International School launched in Tai Po in August 1997 as the Japanese International School, Hong Kong was founded with an international section, and a Japanese section in the school. Twenty years down the line, the school goes from good to great, providing an outstanding learning journey for their offspring in both Japanese and foreign families.
Due to a direct connection to International College Hong Kong (ICHK), JIS could offer an ideal educational opportunity to its students, as half of JIS’ students opt for ICHK due to its well-known innovative curriculum design.
The school offers the Primary Years Programme (PYP), and has set high standards for the quality of its education to create an environment filled with creativity, awareness and intellect equipped with amazing facilities good enough to satisfy the needs of adventurous students.
