The school boasts a unique balance between a Primary English education and the greenest environment of Hong Kong, in low rise buildings. At LIS, children will receive a well-rounded education of the highest standard where they will flourish both socially and academically.

As Hong Kong is such a diverse city, and as LIS truly is an international school with both children and teachers coming from all over the world, the British National Curriculum is adapted so that it is applicable to all pupils.
