If you know nothing about international school, why do you want to put your kid in  IS?  Famous? Personally I don't think yc is a IS.  Go to their website you will find more info.

As you can see my baby's pic, she is only 5 months old now.I am a new mom, that's y I know nothing about IS.
That's y I m doing research studying with u all experience moms.
I am American, most likely my baby will be studying in IS, since she will go back to the states to study later.
I want to target a school that I like then start fr PG to PN to K1 to the IS I like.
Cos she was born in the yr of Dragon, I need to be prepared.

Also, I don't think there is anything wrong to rate a school.Like in the states, or overseas, we do have ranking of different universities.
What makes you being so emotional?!!

The simple answer is ... relocate back to the states when your child reaches schooling age {:1_1:}

As you said you know nothing about the international schools in HK, why don't you take a look at their websites? The list can be found online too.

If you have already had an idea of what internationals schools in HK are, you wouldn't have raised the question like "which one is good?", "which one is better for my kid?"

If your kid wants to study in US later (whether from middle school or high school), then you may consider IS taking an US curriculum. There are only 3 IS in Hong Kong which use the US education curriculum, namely HKIS, ICS and American International only.

Which one is better depends on your need. It is difficult to rank them. If you want a strong Chinese program, HKIS and ICS is better. If you can afford to pay about $200,000 per year, HKIS may give you an education comparable to your school fee. If your budget is around $120,000 per annum, ICS and American International are the only option.

If you are a Christian, ICS is a good choice.

All depends what you need.

Since your kid will return to US for education, you need not consider the schools providing the IB program because they only provide the education in middle or high school only.

Totally agree with Annie123, Shootastar and others' comments.

You may also get some more information about IS in HK from EDB's website:

It is true that there are only three schools providing U.S. curriculum. But if you don't mind Canadian curriculum, you may consider Christian Alliance International School (Kowloon). At this stage, fact-based questions and your own due dilligence are more important. Here is a list of schools that may be helpful to you. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat ... chools_in_Hong_Kong

True... Really can't make a comment on an open-ended question.  I was an ESF mom and an ESF alumni.  I could not take the HK work environment and the ever changing policy and education system anymore, so we chose to relocate back to the US earlier this year.

The key is to find a school that suits your need.  There is no such thing as the best international school in HK, just one that suits your need and one that you can get into.  If you don't have any priorities and are not in cat 1, forget about ESF is my advice.

Why HKIS is so expensive? Does it worth? Or just be so of the big name? I don't mind to pay that if it's good though.
