My son is 4 years old. Since this is our first child, we don't have much ideas of child education and have cast the net when applying school for my son. Luckily, my son received offer for admission to reception class (equivalent to K2 in HK local system) from various international/private schools starting from next school year. We have already crossed out some of them mainly based on impression we got from talking to the teachers or admission people at the school tour and negative comments we have seen in public online forums. Now we have come to point of making a final choice among the shortlisted schools: Malvern vs AISHK (Aus) vs ICS - we see good comments on these schools so far. We understand that these schools are very different in terms of curriculum (UK vs Aus vs US) and college entrance examinations (IB/HSC/AP) but i don't think it matters much for now as i see these schools did have student placements into good universities in UK, US and Australia - these are the most common places for university study.  My key considerations are level of academic rigor, positive character development and overall active learning spirit.
So I'd like to make a poll here to seek your preference among Malvern vs AISHK vs ICS - you can just simply put down the one you think better (of course a simple reason would be much appreciated).  Thank you!

Your son is a smart boy.  Whatever school he goes to he will do fine.   Just follow your heart

Have you attended the school tour of these schools? Just pick the one you and your son like. You can switch later on if you find it not suitable.

感覺你都有做research.
三間主要分別 在於- 地點 越近越好,
ICS 有宗教自己又點睇.
另外新校有heart 但係可能未穩定 (即係有可能教得好/唔好),   

學費估計唔係你考慮既野.

yes I have attended school tour of all these schools and did the shortlisting - they are close in terms of scoring based on my own experience though.

我剩係去過Ics. Seems track record is reliable. Malvern 未有track record. AISHK 澳洲curriculum 我唔熟。

我有做research,主要是attend school tour,網上收集資料,跟兩三個朋友聊過。
地點和學費暫時不是太大問題。
宗教呢樣野我地都比較flexible。我們關注的是哪家在學術培育方面會強一些(即校風比較鼓勵學生積極向上),學生mix會balance一些,哪家將來如果轉學校會容易些。

如果要學生mix, ethnicity,只有一間入圍;其餘兩間絕大部份香港或者中國人

之前阿B都有三間offer,選擇時十五十六,最後問自己希望將來個細路點?就選了ICS,因為我自私,想佢乖些,聽我話多些,學術成績我覺得間間都唔差,加上係十幾後的事,到時覺得唔啱,再轉校

有聽過家長唔揀 AISHK 因為佢學年係跟澳洲 (2020年為例係1月尾開學,12月頭學年完結,咁放假同轉校就要就一就啲時間。
不過當然如果其他 factors 令你好喜歡 AISHK,就唔會俾返學日期呢個因素影響到。

我所指Balance是有各地學生,而不是80-90%都本地人或大陸人,多些老外或其他國家的人就自然地有多些mixed exposure, culture wide and language wide。其實,在某種情況下,我不介意多些中國人(或全中國人),就是學校提供的中文training要跟的上,如ISF到了小學後期,基本上都中國人,因為中文要求高老外都選擇退學了,但中文training好。如果中文稍為差點,不注重(這些國際學校基本上都不注重,但不是全放棄就好),哪academic強一點,不同culture exposure 多一點,可以彌補下小孩在中文表達和寫作上的欠缺。

I roughly remember the staff mentioned during the ICS school tour that there are over 70 percent HK permanent resident students? They did mention most of their foreign students are students of the teachers or missionary team.

Sent u PM for more info

ICS operates as a PIS (private independent school) in hk to my knowledge, which has a different passport ratio requirement, perhaps some current parents can clarify more?

ICS has only 30% foreign passport at most. Really didn’t see any foreigner students in the school tour. Most of my friends study there are hk permanent residents without passport. No priority for foreign passport holder.
Malvern is a new IS. It is more strict in keeping 70% foreign passport students.

ICS唔係國際學校,冇外國護照規範,絕大部份係香港人,有好少數外藉小朋友
