    Coming from US looking for secondary schools

    Our family is relocating to HK in the summer of 2010. We will have 12 and 14 YO girls who are currently in an IB MYP in Georgia. This will probably be a 2 to 4 year stay for us so I am trying to determine the best solution for returning them to a US curriculum to finish high school. Both girls play musical instruments and one irish dances. We would like to consider an ESF school, DC, or CIS. My husband will be based in Kowloon, we would like an option that works for all of us commute wise. Any recommendations?

    Have heard the ESF secondary schools on Kowloon school are all very good. Their IB results are posted online:

    I have looked at Renaissance and was quite interested. What kind of commute would their be for my husband from that area?

    Commute to Kowloon from RCHK

    It would be about 30-40 minutes by train (there is a transfer in Tai Wai) from Heng-On Station near RCHK, but it depends where he is located in Kowloon.

    You could also live in the Shatin area and have the kids commute up to school (about 20 minutes) and him commute down to Kowloon (about 20 minutes).
