November 13th, 2012

Hong Kong has a vibrant international community. The landmass is densely populated and the market is flourishing. Companies from all industries have taken special interest in the region, resulting in the relocation of thousands of businessmen. Today, Hong Kong is 95% ethnic Chinese and 5% other groups.

Entrepreneurs, bankers, salesmen and many others have taken residence in the city. Many are accompanied by their families. As a result, schools have been established to meet the needs of these foreigners. One such example is the Carmel School Association which includes a high school, elementary school and nursery school. The school board members include Jeremy Amias of Amias Berman & Co., Eliad Cohen, Mark Konyn and Seth Fischer of Oasis Management. The Carmel School Association focuses on two second languages: Hebrew and Mandarin.

Another such school is the Canadian International School of Hong Kong. Located in Aberdeen, the schools educates more than 1,800 children from over 40 nationalities. CDNIS students are also taught Mandarin as a second language. It has been listed amongst the Top Ten Private International Schools in Hong Kong.

In 1986, the American International School was established in Hong Kong. It was initially founded under the name California International School. In 1996, it became a non-profit institution and changed its name. AIS educational program is suitable for students up to grade 12, and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
