Head of School's Welcome

Welcome to Australian International School Hong Kong (AISHK) website.

It is my privilege to be Head of this great school that delivers an outstanding education for children of the Australian community in Hong Kong.

AISHK provides the best of both worlds. Whilst undeniably Australian in culture and atmosphere, the school is a colourful and inclusive international community, catering to 1,100 students from over 25 different nationalities. Founded in 1995, AISHK is a non-profit, co-educational day school for students from Preparatory to Year 12 plus a Reception (K2) kindergarten class.

Operating on an Australian school year (late January to mid-December), AISHK is the only school in Hong Kong to offer the Australian curriculum, with the option for senior students, in their final two years, to study either the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (NSW HSC) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP). By offering these two matriculation curriculums, students can easily transition from and to Australia and elsewhere around the world as confident, prepared and adept young people.

Results achieved by graduates in both the HSC and IBDP are consistently outstanding and the school is committed to delivering an environment that truly balances academic excellence and student well-being. 

AISHK is a friendly, happy and caring school to which our students love to come and engage and learn with their friends and teachers. Our staff are dedicated professionals of the highest calibre. Each teacher holds the belief that each student's well-being is at the centre of a successful education. 

Parent engagement is encouraged and plays an active role in supporting the school. AISHK is truly a community school representing both Australians and internationally mobile families living in Hong Kong. 

For many students and their families, facing the prospect of relocation or changing schools can be especially daunting and sometimes stressful. AISHK is where you will readily find a welcome waiting for you.

To learn more about AISHK, do explore this website, or contact us by phone or email, or visit in person and observe our wonderful school in action. 

We look forward to welcoming you as part of our community.
