50 years in Hong Kong - 20 years in Tai Po


Celebrating 20 Years

Welcome to the website of the Japanese International School, Hong Kong (International Section)

In August 1997 our school campus opened in Tai Po and established Japanese International School, Hong Kong with an international section and a Japanese section to the school. 20 years later the school is going from strength to strength offering both Japanese and international families an excellent education for their children. T
he international section of JIS is an authorised I.B. World School offering the very best curriculum and learning opportunities to around 20 different nationalities and cultures. In 2016 the school was awarded the accolade of: 'the holy grail of international primary schools in Hong Kong' by a local education journalist.

The international section community is delightfully small, around 170, students allowing for a very intimate, caring community  environment in which staff, students and parents are working together to achieve similar goals for learning and development. Our students travel from a wide variety of residential areas of Hong Kong to enjoy our spacious, well equipped campus on the edge of a large country  park in Tai Po district, New Territories, Hong Kong.

We invite you to come to the school to visit our campus and meet our students and staff.



Respect • Kindness • Commitment
