Campus and School Development
The ISF Academy moved to its new campus in the tranquil, verdant setting of the Island South District of Hong Kong Island in August 2007. Built on a 13,152 square-meter site, our campus has been carefully designed to reflect and reinforce our distinctive educational mission and approach.
Distinguishing features are our flexible learning cluster areas and our expansive libraries. Together with our many other facilities, they allow for a warm and inviting atmosphere conducive to the pursuit of self-motivated academic excellence and the learning of Chinese culture, an ideal environment for our students to explore the world.
