Island School

Island School (IS) is an ESF secondary school.

Island School opened in 1967 to provide secondary education for children of all nations who can benefit from an education through the medium of English. The school moved to its present site overlooking Central Hong Kong in 1970. The school offers a broad liberal education to 1,200 students of some 40 different nationalities.

There is a strong tradition of pastoral care and a rich array of extra-curricular activities through a long established house system where communities are forged. Students go on to study in highly regarded universities worldwide. The middle school curriculum is designed to progress into both the International Baccalaureate Diploma and the Applied Learning Pathway in the sixth form. Students can pursue a range of interests to balance their suite of IGCSEs.
