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 a vibrant 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. 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.

The international section students community is around 170 students allowing for a very positive community  environment in which staff, students and parents are very understanding of each other and share similar goals for our learning environment.

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



Respect • Kindness • Commitment
