Canadian International School of Hong Kong (CDNIS) is a non-profit school that provides a "through-train" education to students from Pre Reception (3 year olds) through to Grade 12 graduation. The school currently has nearly 1800 students representing 41 nationalities. Considered as one of the leading schools in South East Asia, CDNIS is an IB World School fully authorized to deliver the International Baccalaureate's Diploma, Middle Years and Primary Years Programmes. The school is also authorized to grant credits toward completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), thus providing a "dual passport" for graduates to gain entry into top universities throughout the world. CDNIS is located on the south side of Hong Kong Island in Aberdeen overlooking the spectacular backdrop of the Lamma Channel and surrounding islands. Students are nurtured, inspired and challenged in an award-winning designed campus with superb facilities, including the spectacular 604-seat Leo Lee Arts Centre. The language of instruction and communication is English, with Mandarin, French and Spanish taught as second languages. In addition to academics, the school is particularly strong in the areas of technology, sports and the arts. With a strong focus and emphasis on developing international mindedness and global awareness, students are equipped with an understanding of the need to meet the challenges posed in the school's vision statement; to inspire excellence, cultivate character, and empower engagement locally and globally.
CDNIS has a selective admissions process in which students are assessed prior to entry. Admission decisions are based on a careful assessment of each applicant’s age appropriate knowledge, skills and understandings as well as their social and emotional development. Prospective families are encouraged to visit the school.
Families complete an application profile, and submit detailed reports in English. Successful applicants must demonstrate that they are capable of meeting the school’s high academic standards as self-directed and responsible individuals.
