Korean International School offers students in Hong Kong Island an alternative to the IB programme with its offering of a UK education that works towards A Levels.

While the Korean International School (KIS) was established in 1960 with just six students to provide for the needs of the Korean community in Hong Kong, today it offers both a Korean and an international stream to an international community of students. The international section is significantly larger, with 400 students compared to 110.

The international section of KIS offers a British-style education to the English-speaking community in Hong Kong. Teaching is based on the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in reception, and then the Cambridge International Primary Programme for Years 1-13; students sit IGCSEs in Year 10 and A Levels in Year 13. The school has a decent academic record; in 2017, 74% of all IGCSE grades were A*-C, and over 50% of A Level grades were A*-C. The majority of students here go on to study at a university in the UK, followed by Hong Kong or the US.

Languages offered are Chinese and Korean; there’s a BYOD programme in the secondary school; and KIS offers a variety of extra-curricular activities, sports clubs, environmental initiatives and charity projects beyond the classroom.

Facilities at the campus in Sai Wan Ho (which is close to the Delia School of Canada) include a newly renovated library with an extensive collection of Mandarin, Spanish and Korean books. Fees range from HKD 100,900 in Year 1 to HKD 112,300 in Year 13.
