The Lycée Français Internationale de Hong Kong (French International School of Hong Kong) is a well-established all-through school that offers a French and international education to students across four campuses. The school is open from Reception/Moyenne Section to Year 13/Terminale; with a largely French expat population, FIS follows two streams – French and international. The new Tseung Kwan O campus, which opened in 2018, has state-of-the-art sporting facilities including a large gymnasium, swimming pool and running track, as well as a 300-seat auditorium.
A key feature of the FIS campuses is the sharing of facilities and class time to create a shared curriculum covering both main languages. Both the French and English streams include a wide choice of creative arts, sporting programmes and extra-curricular activities. FIS, which is the only accredited French school in Hong Kong, has been awarded the international “Eco-schools” label from the Foundation for Environmental Education every year since 2008.
What the school says: “Our students share campuses with the French Stream students and together both streams form one single community. By sharing and working together through activities, students know each other and grow from the differences and similarities they experience.”
