HK 'Primary School of the Year' - voted 2021   


Celebrating 20 Years and more

News update: JIS voted Hong Kong Primary School of the Year 202-21 in a recent education media poll.

Welcome to the website of the Japanese International School, Hong Kong (International Section)  -  'The holy grail of international primary schools in Hong Kong' (2016), 'One of the 10 best international schools in Hong Kong' (Nov 2018 - Knowledge Review, USA) .

Update: I.B. Evaluation October 2020 - 18 commendations for achievement above and beyond expected standards. I.B. World school authorisation for a further 5 years.

In August 1997 our large school campus opened in Tai Po and established Japanese International School, Hong Kong with an international section and a Japanese section to the school. Twenty years later the school is going from strength to strength offering both Japanese and international families an excellent educational experience for their children. 

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 dynamic 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.

A warm welcome is assured.



Respect • Kindness • Commitment
