HKIS is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers. World-class facilities and staff in a world-class location. However, as the school becomes more of a business, choices are being made that I personally feel affect the quality of life there. I hope the focus remains upon education and not profit.
Very competitive and stressful at times. Very demanding parents. Beautiful geographical environment to work at. Fun colleagues. Transportation and housing offered as benefits.
Housing included in salary: no salary scale based on years of experience.
Of course, I am a little biased because I did attend this school since I was in kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. This is a great atmosphere to meet knew individuals from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, I have learned so much from the individuals around me and the working environment was great to learn about working with mentors who are older than you. You learn a lot about patience since you are working with younger students.
School Nurse for Middle school, shared position with another nurse. Had various experiences with Middle school children who would come to the clinic for evaluation.
Ever changing needs and skills
Had to leave after 12 months, due to reassignment back to the USA.

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Hong Kong International School?
A typical day was helping teachers and administrators with financial matters. I learned how to run a not-for-profit organization. Management worked well together with the Board of Directors. Co-workers were kind and friendly, no aggressive behavior. The hardest part of the job was to find appropriate housing for expatriate staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was to help the organization to raise funds and surpluses through institutional advancement and controlling expenses.
Hong Kong International School has outstanding teachers, an excellent curriculum, and state of the art facilities, including a one to one program from grade 3 through 12. The professional learning community is exceptional, with many of its teachers provided extensive professional development annually. It a school with high demands, but high rewards.
