RC vs Creative Primary School

My son is offered a Year 1 place by Renaissance College (RC).  Grateful for some advice about RC.

My son is now K2 in Creative Primary School's Kindergarten (Oxford Road, Kln Tong) will have more than 90% chance to be accepted by Creative Primary School (CPS) after K3.  CPS is a local private independent school but runs IB curriculum.  So far It is a very good school, happy and caring.  Chinese language program is definitely better than RC.  English language is definitely not as good as RC but I think it might be easier to find good English supplement courses outside school.  
There are pros and cons for both schools.  However, we live next to RC but the pick up time for CPS school bus is 6:30am in the morning.   There is almost 2 extra hours of sleep each day if our son goes to RC.

We don't know much about RC, but heard that they have a high teacher turn over rate in recent years.  Can someone give us more insights about RC?  Our friends told us RC requires the students to be proficient in using computer in all homework.  Some thinks it is good but some thinks the kids may be too obsessed with it and are thinking of switching to Shatin Junior or ICS.  Any advice is really appreciated please!

RCHK:
1) not much HW in Y1, most of the kids would spend their time on reading and sports
2) computer skill would be introduced step by step at school but it's a matter of discipline at home. My son is Y5 and he doesn't play electronic game-- since no iPhone, no iPad, and no TV games at all.
3) kids love school and they learn spontaneously (except for Chinese).
4) turn over rate is normal and the class teachers we met (y1-4) are still there!
5) join a school tour and learn more about the school directly, don't trust my words because I can tell you from my sole experience only.

Thank you. Location is the major reason why I choose RC. I hope my son can learn better Chinese, that's why i have hesitation to give up Creative Primary.
