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.

The best part of HKIS, whether as a parent, volunteer or employee is the community spirit of the school. New families, students, teachers and parents are warmly welcomed each year and find life-long friends and colleagues in the process.

Teaching Assistant, Kindergarten (Former Employee) - Hong Kong
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.
