Inspiring Learners for Life: Strategic Plan 2013-2018

HKIS’s Strategic Plan sets the priorities and identifies the strategies to best meet the educational needs of our students and successfully fulfill the school’s Mission and Vision.

Our current strategic plan was developed in concert with our Focus on Learning process for accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and with the active participation of over 300 members of the HKIS community. 


The purpose of this page is to celebrate our accomplishments and share next steps towards advancing our vision of “inspiring a socially engaged community of collaborative, creative and resilient learners”. The Strategic Plan comprises five areas of focus: Building Understanding, Awareness and Support; Strengthening Organisational Culture; Refining Curriculum and Assessment; Designing Systems for Success; and Leveraging Resources and Strategic Alliances.
