Singapore International School (Hong Kong) is a unique school outside Singapore that is guided closely by the Singapore education philosophy. The school is the only Singaporean overseas school recognised and supported by Singapore’s MOE.

Established in September 1991, SISHK offers a rigorous bilingual curriculum. Our school culture and environment is enhanced by the diverse mix of students and dedicated teachers who come from different cultures and bring with them different experiences and talents. SISHK fosters a spirit of innovation and experimentation which aims to bring out the best in every student. Our emphasis on teaching and learning beyond the classroom and co-curricular activities such as educational tours and camps allows every student to grow into a confident, well-rounded individual who is keen to meet life’s challenges and is prepared for global citizenship.

Starting from Academic Year 2020/21, new students joining the school will be required to either use the school bus service or public transport when travelling to or from school. For more information on SISHK’s School Bus and Public Transport Policy, please click here.
