The 10 Influential Leaders in Education

“Your child will love coming to school and learning with us”

School is a place where the building blocks of knowledge are established. Though there are different benefits of going to school, the main purpose of schools is to educate students and to introduce them to a world that is bigger than theirs. With an aim to conquer the world and achieve their dreams, today’s children will benefit from a school that offers them the liberty to follow their passions and explore the world while gaining the fundamentals of a great education too. Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong (NAIS HK), has been transforming learning by thinking beyond a traditional education since 2014.

NAIS HK believes that the world is quite literally a student’s playground and that most begin weaving their future dreams fairly early in their school life. Believing in its students and their capabilities to achieve anything, the school encourages its students to step out of their comfort zone, be ambitious and try new things. The school aims to ignite the curiosity of its students through providing unique opportunities and experiences – be it their extra- curricular offerings (over 120) or their collaborations with world-renowned organisations like The Juilliard School, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) or UNICEF.
