Japanese International School is a small primary school in the New Territories and a feeder school for International College Hong Kong.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the Hong Kong education sector, the Japanese International School (JIS) is a popular primary school with just 170 students of 22 nationalities (about 25% are Japanese). As well as offering all the benefits of a smaller school – a close-knit community and friendly, personalised learning – JIS is well-equipped to deliver a solid IB education to 5 to 11-year-olds.
JIS has direct links to its feeder school, International College Hong Kong (ICHK), where around 50% of its students choose to go. Operated by Hong Kong Japanese School Limited, JIS shares its campus with a Japanese section of the school; other schools in the group include the Japanese School in Happy Valley and the Junior High School in Quarry Bay, which both follow the Japanese school calendar and curriculum.
Teaching at this English-medium school follows the IB Primary Years Programme, which prepares students for the IB programmes offered at ICHK. Students learn either Mandarin or Japanese, and there’s a strong focus on “rich mathematical inquiry”, creativity, and learning science and technology “in context”.
Surrounded by beautiful scenery, this spacious and purpose-built campus has specialist rooms including a large art room, music room, ICT lab, and a large multi-purpose room for dance and drama activities. Sports facilities include an indoor swimming pool, Astro-turf field, and running track.
Tuition fees are lower than average at HKD 107,850, and there is an Annual Capital Levy of HKD 15,200.
