The well-established Yew Chung International School Hong Kong (YCIS) has been teaching an immersive bilingual programme in Kowloon since 1932. YCIS is so committed to delivering a solid Chinese-English bilingual programme that every class has a Western and Chinese teacher, each of its three campuses is jointly run by a Western and a Chinese co-principal, and all students explore the country through an active Experiencing China programme.
The school has three campuses located within walking distance of each other, including a kindergarten, primary and secondary school. Teaching here includes the global Character First programme, which encourages positive social and Christian values through activities such as reading, drama, and arts and crafts; violin lessons from Years 1-3; and trips to regions in China such as Guilin, Qingdao, and Inner Mongolia as part of the Experiencing China programme.
What the school says: “A YCIS student, on our unique education journey, is immersed in Eastern and Western cultures whilst acquiring a high proficiency in English (including English as an Additional Language, EAL) and Chinese; unifying in high bilingual skills. Our students gain a new and profoundly deep appreciation of the two spectrums.”
