A Leading IB World School in Hong Kong

The Canadian International School of Hong Kong CDNIS is one of the most recognised and reputable International Baccalaureate schools encompassing the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). Since its development in 1991, the independent school has quickly become known for its innovative and future-driven approach, serving as a well-respected industry leader. They foster long-lasting teacher-parent relationships, with over 50% of graduates in the Class of 2019 having been with the school for an impressive 12 years or more, and a student body of 40 nationalities. They currently have over 1800 students and 300 staff members, and 15 different grades coexisting on the same campus to encourage intercultural and inspiring school relationships.

What's special about the school:

  • A key feature of this school is that it is the only school outside of Canada that allows students to graduate with both the IB diploma and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students can start from Years 1 to 5 for the PYP programme, Years 6-10 for the MYP programme and Years 11 to 12 for the DP programme. Years 9-12 are also enrolled in the OSSD. 
  • Alongside these two programmes, their curriculum is further committed to Chinese (Mandarin) language integration, and they pride themselves on having one of the finest Chinese Studies Departments among English schools in Hong Kong. Oral and written Chinese are interwoven in their classes and they cater to all language levels from beginners to native speakers by using a two-stream approach: language A Stream is for fluent speakers, and language B stream is for emergent speakers). 
  • Chinese culture is also emphasised through the extracurricular activities offered by the Chinese Culture Academy and the language exchange programmes that students can apply to during school breaks. In August 2022, the school implemented a bilingual option for their Early Years programme (3-4 year-olds) using 50/50 English and Chinese content.
  • Another interesting aspect is their commitment to using digital learning across their curriculums.

Students can use iPads as early as Year 1 to develop digital portfolios and Mac laptops from Year 4 onwards. Google Educational Apps are applied to encourage productive learning, and there are even robotics programmes for students in Years 3 to 5 where they can investigate underwater robots in STEAM education.
