About The School

The Independent Schools Foundation Academy is one of the most sought-after bilingual (Putonghua and English) schools in Hong Kong. ISF is a highly selective school which “aims for mastery in both languages by upper secondary, backed by a deep appreciation for Chinese and other civilizations.” From K3 to Grade 12, classes are delivered in Mandarin and English using inquiry-based and collaborative learning in Hong Kong’s highly competitive education market. From K3, Mandarin is used as the primary language of instruction (70%). This balance gradually redresses itself until Grade 10 where English is the primary language, being used 80% of the time. Since 2004, the school has focused on delivering education steeped in Chinese culture accentuated with global awareness. The aim is to ensure children attending the school have a strong connection to their Chinese identity, without overlooking the diversity and value of other cultures. The campus is quite impressive with facilities including a 180-seat black-box theatre, art rooms, music practice rooms, junior science laboratory, indoor gymnasium with a vertical climbing wall, rooftop playground, senior study centre, two libraries, basketball courts, the Sporting and Cultural Centre houses a 25m six-lane indoor swimming pool, a performing arts centre with a 850-seat auditorium, multi-purpose sports courts, a wushu practice room, a tennis court, and a covered play area. Academic excellence is a top priority of ISF Academy and students are challenged to go above and beyond in order to achieve successful results.
