Brief History

Kiangsu & Chekiang Primary School , International Section (KCIS) first opened in September 1993. The school was one of the first in Hong Kong to offer an English-medium curriculum coupled with daily lesson in Mandarin, for all children from the age of 3 to 11 years old, and it was from these small beginnings that the school has continued to grow and flourish over the past few years. Today the school continues to be a happy and expanding community where the children are able to learn in a stimulating and exciting environment.
The British National Curriculum is used as the school's core curriculum, and care has been taken to modify it wherever necessary to fit in with the unique needs of children living in a multi-cultural community like Hong Kong. Care has also been taken to insist upon a high standard of behaviour from all the children, and we have in place a sensible balanced code of behaviour, which all the children are expected to follow.Our Secondary Section grew out of repeated requests from our Primary section parents, who at the time were increasingly concerned about the lack of secondary places at other International Schools in Hong Kong. We opened our first Year 7 class in September 2002, Since then we have expanded steadily. Now, our Year 10 and 11 students study for the IGCSE Examinations. We are registered with Edexcel and Cambridge Examination Board, from the UK, and our courses are chosen from both these providers. In 2007 we achieved authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization, to offer the I.B. Diploma to Years 12 and 13 students. We are very pleased that our IB graduate students are now enrolling in higher education equipped with qualifications that are recognized by many Universities both here in Hong Kong and worldwide.
