Best international schools in Hong Kong

The top kindergartens, primary and secondary schools of the city

Hong Kong boasts some of the best international schools in Asia. Across the territory, schools offer different curriculums from around the world, different styles of teaching and campuses, and expertise in different areas from sports to STEM and languages. It can be a daunting challenge to narrow down the choices, so we’ve selected some of the best for you to help make the process less stressful.



American International School


American International School has a reputation for being a warm, welcoming school with a holistic nature. It was founded in 1986 with the intention to provide school options for families who seek an American international education in Hong Kong. The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and offers a US AP. It is also an accredited SAT test centre. Around 40 percent of pupils annually go on to US colleges, the rest to universities in Europe, Canada and Hong Kong amongst others. 


All students are schooled on the same campus, from kindergarten to high school and there are no additional assessments for passing through from one faculty to the next.  There is a swimming pool on site as well as numerous basketball courts and play areas though AIS uses external facilities for some larger events. The school has a broad outdoor education curriculum (OELP) combining charitable and adventurous causes.

Australian International School Hong Kong


Australian International School Hong Kong is the to-go-to school for Australian and New Zealand nationals for whom it offers a priority system, though it also accepts students from many other nationalities. As the school year runs from January to December, it is frequently a popular choice with other southern hemisphere families.


The primary school uses the Australian National Curriculum while in the secondary school pupils choose between the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (HSC) or the IB Diploma. AISHK receives extremely good academic results each year – it is not unusual to see 10 percent achieve a perfect score in the IB and over 50 percent achieve 40 or more. 

 

The school’s sports programme is extremely good and it is lucky to have probably the most picturesque school swimming pool in Hong Kong, perched on the top of the building with a view over the city. As the only Australian school in Hong Kong, AISHK is heavily integrated with any Australian events going on in the city. This means visits from the Prime Minister or, probably more excitingly for the students, the country’s Rugby Sevens team.


Number of pupils: 1,100 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Kowloon Tong Fees: $106,900 to $223,100 Principal: Mark Hemphill (2018) Senior school exam system: IB and New South Wales HSC Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Canadian International School of Hong Kong


Canadian International School of Hong Kong is a large school which welcome more than just Hong Kong’s resident Canadians. Academically, it offers both the IB and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) so that it can cater both for these wanting a Canadian education and those needing the flexibility of an international curriculum.  


CDNIS is an ambitious school which is constantly renewing, reevaluating and reinventing. There is never a time when something big and bold isn’t in the planning or in the making. Previously that has been the Leo Lee Arts Centre and the Chinese Cultural Centre. More recently the school invested in installing hundreds of solar panels to help them work towards being carbon neutral. At 450,000 square feet, the campus in Aberdeen is large and entirely self-sufficient with an auditorium, 25m pool and sports pitches all on site.


Number of pupils: 1,800 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Aberdeen Fees: $115,900 to $205,400 Principal: Jane Camblin (2019) Senior school exam system: IB or OSSD Language of instruction: English Taught languages: French, Mandarin, Spanish Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified and traditional



Carmel School


Comprising of a total of three campuses, Carmel School is an all-through school from pre-kindergarten through to Grade 12. The only Jewish school in Hong Kong, Carmel School was set up in 1991. It has earned a reputation of a centre devoted to intellectual achievement, promoting holistic growth and development of students. Family involvement holds significant importance as the school believes that parent and school partnership help a student rise to their complete potential.


Pre-school children enter the school system at the Holly Rofé Early Learning Centre on Robinson Road. From there, students get a chance to progress to the Carmel Elementary School on Mid-levels’ Borrett Road before they finally move to Elsa High School in Shau Kei Wan.


Number of pupils: 400 Ages: One to 18 Number of campuses and location: Two in Mid-levels and one in Shau Kei Wan Fees: $76,700 to $195,500 Principal: Rachel Freidmann (2010) Senior school exam system: IB Language of instruction: English Taught languages: English, French, Hebrew, Spanish and Mandarin Other details: Debenture – no; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified



Chinese International School


Chinese International School is often revered in many circles as one of Hong Kong’s most academic and demanding schools with a strong emphasis on bilingualism in English and Mandarin. At primary level, the school gives equal timetable weighting to the two languages and teaches much of the curriculum in both. At secondary, the main teaching medium is English, however, there are numerous programmes for solidifying Mandarin, including a year long school programme in Hangzhou which all Year 10 students take part in.


The campus has recently undergone some redevelopment under the grand title of ‘Phoenix Soaring’, which at completion will provide CIS with a science and technology hub, four gymnasiums, a 25m indoor swimming pool, whole-school library, an outdoor climbing wall, a 200-seat auditorium and a 200-seat drama studio.


The average IB score at CIS is around 38 and the higher education department is extremely experienced in assisting students to enter elite universities.


Number of pupils: 1,500 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Braemar Hill Fees: $164,400 to $260,800 Principal: Sean Lynch (2018) Senior school exam system: IB Language of instruction: Mixture of English and Mandarin depending on the year group Taught languages: Mandarin, French, Spanish Other details: Debenture- yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – traditional with some simplified for beginners



Discovery Bay International School


Discovery Bay International School offers a British curriculum, centred around the community of Discovery Bay on the island of Lantau. Due to this fact, the school is more expat dominated than some other international schools where there is a broader representation of local Hong Kong Chinese. However equally, DBIS is renowned for being a very community centric school.


The school has expanded organically over time and now offers a full through train education from nursery. The campus is large and impressive and is definitely one of the the calmer, greener campuses available to Hong Kong students. DBIS makes the most of this rural surroundings within the curriculum and out of classroom learning.


Number of pupils: 1,070 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Discovery Bay Fees: $113,300 to $185,500 Principal: Stuart Bridge (2019) Senior school exam system: IGCSE and A-Levels Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French, Spanish Other details: Debenture (development levy) – yes; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified



English Schools Foundation


English Schools Foundation is a group of schools that was founded in 1967, offering an affordable English education, subsidised by the government. It has grown over time and the ESF umbrella now comprises 22 schools located all around Hong Kong, from Sha Tin to Southside, from kindergarten to secondary. The government subsidy has now been removed and fees are more competitively aligned with other international schools.


All ESF schools operate under their own name – for instance, South Island School and The Peak School – and almost all are dedicated faculty schools, meaning they have separate campuses for primary, secondary etc. This is with the exception of two which are through-train (Discovery College and Renaissance College).


The schools largely follow the IB curriculum, however the dedicated secondary schools also sit IGCSEs. For those not wanting to sit the IB diploma, they have designed an alternative called Applied Learning Pathway (ALP). The schools operate a catchment area admissions process, the specifics of which are in its website.


Number of pupils: 17,500 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location: 22 schools across all areas of Hong Kong Fees: $72,500 to $175,400 Principal: Belinda Greer (CEO since 2013) Senior school exam system: IGCSE in Year 11 (except Renaissance and Discovery) and IB or ALP (see above) Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Italian – variable by school Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



French International School


French International School has been a backbone of Hong Kong education since 1960s, offering both a French and international stream. In 2018, FIS opened a brand new campus in Tseung Kwan O. This is a state of the art, purpose-built facility which houses both French and international primary as well as French secondary.


In recent years the school has developed an immersive bilingualism programme in the primary school which allows collaboration between the two streams, improving the alternative language of instruction for both sides. This is in operation at the TKO campus and is being rolled out at Jardine’s Lookout following redevelopment of the classrooms.


In the secondary school, there is the opportunity for French stream students to take an advanced English programme. Whilst French nationals get priority in the French stream, FIS prides itself on being true to the concept of an international school with more than 40 nationalities across the school.


Number of pupils: 2,700 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: One Tseung Kwan O, one in Jardine’s Lookout, one in Blue Pool Lane and one in Chai Wan Fees: $106,355 to $201,000 Principal: David Tran (2017) Senior school exam system: IB or le bac Language of instruction: French and English (depending on which stream) Taught languages: Mandarin, French, English and Spanish Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified



German Swiss International School


German Swiss International School has a reputation as being one of Hong Kong’s more academically demanding schools. Entrance spots are hotly contested and the admission process much revered. 


The Peak campus is big, bright and dazzling with sophisticated facilities with high tech labs, senior study room, senior library, a renovated sports hall and an indoor swimming pool. The primary school facilities include classrooms fitted with the latest technology, a library with over 20,000 resources in English, German and Chinese. There is also a vast multi-functional atrium, a primary gym and a rooftop playground. The school runs a house system to help foster a community spirit.  


At the start of the 2019 school year, GSIS launched a bilingual kindergarten programme, which runs in addition to the German stream programme. The bilingual set up offers two options, German with English or German with Mandarin. There is a native teacher or each language in each class with the aim of providing 50:50.


Number of pupils: 1,300 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location:  One in The Peak and one in Pok Fu Lam Fees: $156,110 to $203,420 Principal: Ulrich Weghoff (2018) Senior school exam system: German International Abitur or IGCSE and IB Language of instruction: English or German Taught languages: German, French, Mandarin, English Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified



Harrow International School Hong Kong


Harrow International School Hong Kong opened in 2012 as part of the larger group of Harrow international schools. It is the only school in Hong Kong to offer any form of boarding provision. Initially this was full boarding but that was altered to weekly boarding a few years ago. Boarders leave on Friday afternoon and return to school on Sunday evening.  


The school is on an enormous 400,000 square feet purpose-built campus on the Gold Coast, which has a mandatory bus service and is one of the only schools in Hong Kong to still offer A-Levels. It is worth noting that entry to one of the Harrow international schools does not also mean entry to the historic Harrow in the UK.  Boys hoping to attend Harrow in London go through the same admissions procedure as any other applicant.


Number of pupils: 1,300 Ages: Three to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Tuen Mun Fees: $150,000 to $204,000 Principal: Ann Haydon (2017) Senior school exam system:  GCSE and A-Levels Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French, Spanish Other details: Debenture – yes, full; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Hong Kong Academy


2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong Academy


From small beginnings, the non-profit international school first opened its doors on Stubbs Road to primary school students in 2000, graduated its first IB Diploma cohort in 2012 and moved to its current campus in Sai Kung in 2013. 


Despite its dazzling facilities (think vast auditorium, vertiginous climbing wall and flexible classrooms), it has a friendly, welcoming feel not seen in every school this size. The school honours the founding principles of community engagement, inclusion and diversity, mutual respect and educational excellence.


HKA is forward thinking in its curriculum, offering the IB from start to finish, the school aims to give a broad, holistic, real-world approach to its pupils’ studies. Rather than categorising each into its own compartment, departments work together to find synergies, allowing students to see how and where subjects (art and science as an example) overlap in actuality.


Unusually for a Hong Kong school, the SEN support at HKA is impressive and much used. This is not a school where anyone needs to feel concerned about needing some extra help. The two libraries are also hot spots of activity thanks to the very committed and engaged librarians.


There is a series of anniversary events taking place throughout the year. Find out more here.


Number of pupils: 530 Ages: Two to 19 Number of campuses and location:  One in Sai Kung Fees: $149,800 to $231,700 Principal: Stephen Dare (2010) Senior school exam system: IB, HKA Dimploma and GCD Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, Spanish, French Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Hong Kong International School

While it is a big school, places at Hong Kong International School are always hotly contested. Many parents are drawn in by its more relaxed approach in tandem with a focus on nurture. The pastoral care at HKIS is a big feature, in line with its American ethos and the Christian pulse which runs through the school.


HKIS is nestled into the southside of Hong Kong Island, with one campus in Tai Tam (Middle and high school) and the other in Repulse Bay (primary).  HKIS has a grand and ambitious programme of reinvestment which recently saw redevelopment of lower and upper primary. Next on the agenda is the Tai Tam campus which has plans in place for an innovation centre and arts wing.


There is frequent debate about the strength of the Mandarin programme, though streams are divided into near native and second language, and then divided again according to whether that are studying traditional or simplified characters.


Number of pupils: 2,800 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Tai Tam one in Repulse Bay Fees: $196,200 to $225,950 Principal: Ron Roukema (acting head for 2019) Senior school exam system: AP Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French, Spanish Other details: Debenture – yes (currently full); Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified or traditional depending on stream



Kellett School


As the original British school in Hong Kong, Kellett is seen by many one of the big hitters in the world of education. Originally a prep school in Pok Fu Lam, in 2013 it opened a state of the art prep and secondary in Kowloon Bay which runs in tandem with the original school on Hong Kong Island.


As the Kowloon Bay school was purpose built, the facilities are as dazzling as one would expect – sky track, vast auditorium, high-tech classrooms – all within a bright and spacious setting. The school also has an impressive, well structured out-of-classroom learning programme from Year 5. This takes places in November of each year and involves charitable and cultural projects in countries such as Cambodia, Thailand and New Zealand.


In the summer of 2019, Kellett’s long term head stepped down after 23 years to be replaced by Mark Steed.


Number of pupils: 1,400 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Kowloon Bay and one in Pok Fu Lam Fees: $172,600 to $220,800 Principal: Mark Steed (2019) Senior school exam system: IGCSE and A-Levels Language of instruction: English Taught languages: French, Spanish, Mandarin, German, Latin Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified and traditional



Malvern College Hong Kong


Malvern College Hong Kong opened in August 2018. Another school that was fortunate to be given a plot of land by the government on which to build a state of the art campus (this one near the Science Park), the facilities are much lauded – music rooms with professional-grade acoustics, a sports hall floor that mimics the bounce of a cricket ball on real grass, a science department with an exhibition hall for displaying work – this is serious stuff. The school also has two separate preschools.


The school takes much inspiration from its British counterpart; a house system is in operation and there is a traditional refectory for school lunches. The school is also led by Robin Lister who was a senior staff member of Malvern UK for twenty years.


Malvern is particularly proud of its association with the Forest School, an organisation which promotes learning in and around nature, challenging children to take risks and understand the natural environment. 


Number of pupils: 1,000 (when eventually at full capacity) Ages: Five to 18 (though currently only up to 15) Number of campuses and location: One in Pak Shek Kok, one in Sai Ying Pun and one in Yau Ma Tei Fees: $169,600 to $192,290 Principal : Robin Lister (2018) Senior school exam system: IB Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin  Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified; Mandatory bus service



Mount Kelly School Hong Kong


Mount Kelly is the sister school of the eponymous UK school in Dorset. It offers a British prep school style education based on the English National Curriculum which enables its students to prepare and sit for entrance exams to the UK. It is unique amongst other Hong Kong schools which have been opened by established names (Harrow, Wycombe Abbey etc), in that it actively encourages its pupils to consider continuing their education at the UK counterpart. This includes the option to take part in an exchange to Dorset where pupils experience two weeks in the shoes of their British peers.


Situated in Kowloon, Mount Kelly is currently based within a commercial building though there are possibly plans to expand into a bigger campus for a senior school. In the meantime, the school makes use of the surrounding Kowloon facilities, including King’s Park.


Ages: Five to 13 Number of campuses and location: One in Tsim Sha Tsui Fees: $154,990 – $184,998 Principal: Rain Jones (2019) Senior school exam system:  N/A Language of instruction: English Taught languages: Mandarin, French Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong


Nord Anglia is a relatively new arrival to Hong Kong but, being part of a much larger global machine, benefits from years of educational experience. There are 55 schools across the world but each one is afforded its own anonymity to decide on curriculum, staffing and school structure.


There are three Nord Anglia campuses across Hong Kong. Two preschools and one through school. Because NAIS only started in 2014, it is growing each year group organically and the 2019/20 academic year was the first in which there was a sixth form. These students will graduate in 2021.   


Nord Anglia uses the English National Curriculum in primary and through to Key Stage 4 where it offers IGCSEs. The final two years are then dedicated to the IB. Due to its global size, Nord Anglia has tremendous connections around the world which make the non classroom learning side to school life pretty dazzling – the annual programme with MIT is a particular highlight.


Number of pupils: 1,500 (when at capacity) Ages: Three to 16 (currently, though growing organically to 18) Number of campuses and location: One in Lam Tin (through school), one in Tai Tam (preschool) and one in Sai Kung (preschool) Fees: $81,000 to $182,000 Principal: Brian Cooklin (2014) Senior school exam system:  IGCSE and IB Language of instruction: English  Taught languages: Mandarin, Spanish Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – no, but capital enrollment fee; Chinese – simplified



Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong


Fairly uniquely for Hong Kong, Shrewsbury is a standalone primary school for children between the ages of three to 11. A purpose built campus in Tseung Kwan O, it opened in August 2018.  


As is to be expected when schools build from scratch, the site is a bright, spacious campus entered by a grand sweeping staircase and spread across six floors, with two year groups on each floor. There are not one but two swimming pools (one is for the real littlies learning to swim), an impressive auditorium seating over 400, a recital suite, language centre, gymnastics hall, dining hall and, of course, the obligatory sky track.


The school is lead by Ben Keeling who cut his teeth on the opening of the Kellett campus before being lured in to open Shrewsbury. Keeling works hard on his relationships with other Hong Kong schools in order to ensure a smooth transition on from Shrewsbury after Year 6. 

 

Number of pupils: 1,000 (when at full capacity) Ages:  Three to 11 Number of campuses and location:  One in Tseung Kwan O Fees: $143,500 to $177,000 Principal: Ben Keeling (2018) Senior school exam system:  N/A Language of instruction: English  Taught languages: Mandarin Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Singapore International School


Singapore International School is acknowledged by many as one of the most demanding schools in Hong Kong. Situated in two separate campuses on Hong Kong island, for the older ages it offers Cambridge IGCSEs and the IBDP. In earlier years it follows an adapted Singaporean curriculum. The school is required to prioritise Singaporean students but has many spaces for ambitious non-natives as well.


The stand out selling point for SISHK is its bilingual curriculum in a highly academic environment (which, NB, in turn leads to a higher proportion of homework than many schools). As is to be expected, there is a heavy emphasis on Mandarin each day which is seen as equal to the learning of both English and Maths. On the sports field, it isn’t quite so dominant, however it is working to improve this. Facilities, though, are stellar.  


Number of pupils: 1,400 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: Two, both in Aberdeen Fees: $83,000 to $198,800 Principal: Kelvin Tay (2017) Senior school exam system: IGCSE and IB Language of instruction: English and Mandarin Taught languages: As above Other details: Debenture – yes, compulsory; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



The Harbour School


The Harbour School is one of Hong Kong’s progressive schools. Run by education psychologist, Jadis Blurton, this is a school which prioritises the idea of making its students “world ready”.  The curriculum is as hands on and applicable as possible, making connections between subjects rather than teaching them all as individual, stand alone topics. The high school gives a large amount of autonomy in academic course selection, more akin to a college environment.  


Everything is unusual here – the swimming pool is not a rectangle for lane races but instead shaped like a lagoon for canoeing practice and underwater robotic testing. The school owns a yacht which is used for lessons in maths, history and physics. There is also a marine biology department which homes a plethora of weird and wonderful creatures.    


THS also welcomes children with special educational needs and has a dedicated department to help integrate them with the main school while still giving them individualised support.  


Number of pupils: 200 Ages: Four to 18 Number of campuses and location: Two in Ap Lei Chau, one in Kennedy Town Fees: $164,000 to $210,000 Principal: Jadis Blurton (2007) Senior school exam system: AP curriculum but no external exam Language of instruction: English Taught languages: French and Mandarin Other details: Debenture – yes; Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified



Victoria Shanghai Academy


An IB World School located in Shum Wan next to the Aberdeen Harbour, Victoria Shanghai Academy has over 1,800 students and offers three IB programmes: Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). The school emphasises a holistic approach to inquiry-based learning and teaching. VSA’s primary section offers a bilingual education (English and Putonghua), whilst the secondary curriculum is delivered in English and supplemented by a strong Chinese programme.


As a private independent school, VSA’s student body encompasses a range of nationalities and ethnicities. Its students are avid bilingual learners with passion and curiosity, encouraged by the school to becoming responsible global citizens who embrace Chinese heritage.


Number of pupils: 1,900 Ages: Six to 18 Number of campuses and location: One in Aberdeen Fees: $139,500 to $201,420 Principal: Ross Dawson (Primary), Christopher Coates (Secondary) Senior school exam system: IB Language of instruction: English and Putonghua (Primary), English only (Secondary)



Woodland Pre-Schools


Since 1978, Woodland Pre-Schools has prepared over 60,000 children for successful primary school education by giving them the best start on their developmental journey. Its track record for International Primary School placement is second to none in Hong Kong.

Each of its eight campuses in Mid-Levels, Aberdeen, Happy Valley, Kennedy Town, Pok Fu Lam, Repulse Bay Beachside, Repulse Bay Montessori and Sai Kung offers a unique learning environment and a chance to join the Woodland community.


Woodland offers classes for children from six months to six years, following the UK Early Years Foundation Stage with English, Mandarin and Bilingual language options. Two of its campuses are also Montessori accredited.


Ages: Six months to six years Number of campuses and location One in Mid-Levels, Aberdeen, Happy Valley, Kennedy Town, Pok Fu Lam and Sai Kung, two in Repulse Bay Fees: $8,800 to $11,400 for half-day and $11,400 to $14,200 for full-day Principal: Gazel Razavi Senior school exam system: N/A Language of instruction: English and Mandarin



Wycombe Abbey


Wycombe Abbey's Hong Kong arm arrived in the city in August 2019. If the name seems familiar, this is because Wycombe Abbey is one of the most famous girls schools in the UK, known principally for its impressive academic results.


The Hong Kong version is specialist primary school. It will eventually have places up to Year 8 though opened up to Year 5. It is also co-ed. The USP for this school is that it will help to prepare students who are intending to move to schools in the UK by preparing them for the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. No other school in HK currently does this. The headmaster, Howard Tuckett, has decades of experience as a prep school head (and by UK terms, Wycombe Abbey HK is a prep school) so is perfectly placed to assist parents needing this kind of help.


Ages: Five to 10 (eventually up to 13) Number of campuses and location: One in Aberdeen Fees: $188,000 to $198,000 Principal: Howard Tuckett (2019) Senior school exam system: N/A Language of instruction: English  Other details: Nomination rights – yes, Capital levy – yes; Chinese – simplified and some traditional



Yew Chung International School

Yew Chung International School is a through train school with five early childhood campuses, three primary and one secondary (one of which was brand new in 2019). Once pupils join the school, they have a direct route through to secondary, provided there are no major SEN issues. The senior school offers IGCSEs followed by the IB. 


The unique offering at YCIS comes in the form of bilingual instruction – in the preschool, this is English with Cantonese; at primary school level it switches to English with Mandarin. The school works hard to keep this language offering entirely balanced throughout the school.  


For the younger ages, the school is a learning through play environment. YCIS is in fact a world leader in early childhood studies, offering teacher-training course that awards a Bachelor’s degree from the Yew Chung College of Early Childhood Education (YCCECE), in Aberdeen.  


Ages: Six months to 18 years Number of campuses and location: Multiple in Kowloon Tong, one in Tseung Kwan O Fees: $75,790 to $225,870 Principal: Martin Scott Senior school exam system: IB Language of instruction: English and Mandarin (English and Cantonese in preschools)  Other details: Debenture – mandatory; Capital levy – no; Chinese – simplified and traditional
