Head of School Welcome

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the Canadian International School of Hong Kong.

Since its inception in 1991, we have gone from strength to strength in becoming one of the leading international schools in Hong Kong. We are now a school of almost 1,900 students and over 300 staff committed to the school’s vision of inspiring excellence, cultivating character and empowering engagement locally and globally.

We take great pride in the development and achievements of our students, from our youngest 3-year-old learners to our high school graduates. They leave CDNIS having benefitted from a robust academic foundation, a respect for the world in which they live and the people with whom they share the world, and a set of valuable life skills that include being excellent communicators, natural collaborators, and sharp, impressive creative and critical thinkers.

Continuing CDNIS’s reputation for being a progressive school that pushes itself into innovative spaces, the 2023-2024 school year promises exciting continuations and culminations of major projects including the expansion of our English and Chinese Bilingual Programme into the Preparatory years (5-year-old learners), and the finalization of our brand new nursery programme for 2-year-olds set to launch in August 2024.

As you click through our website, if you have any questions, please send them our way. Our Admissions team would also love to hear from you, so feel free to reach out and send them an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
