School Introduction

JIS is small primary school and one of four schools under the Japanese Government education system in Hong Kong. The others are the Japanese section of JIS, the Japanese School in Happy Valley and the Junior High School in Quarry Bay.

It is also affiliated to International College and, as such, is able to offer a through-train education. In 2011, 65% of JIS graduates went to ICHK and in 2012, a few less: 50%.

JIS has 170 students of 22 nationalities (about 25% are Japanese) while the Japanese section has approximately 400 students.

Its beautiful, spacious building – opened in 2007 and funded by the Japanese government – is shared by the two sections of the school. Each section has its own classrooms and share other common facilities. This is a small school with large facilities, including a fabulous indoor swimming pool (two, actually), a Japanese style kitchen and a sports field.

Accredited to offer the IB PYP since 2007, the main medium of instruction is English. With smallish classes of no more than 25, teachers are able to manage children with mild special needs as well as gifted children with the help of a teaching assistant in each class. About 10% of children receive ESL support, provided by the on-site ESL teacher.

Accepts children from 4 into Reception which is ‘play based’. Children may choose either Mandarin or Japanese as their second language.

The schools day is 8:15 – 2:45 with plenty of extra curricula activities offered. Bus services run from Gold Coast, Sai King, Tai Po, West and Central Kowloon and Tai Wai/Shatin/Fo Tan.
