    Actual chinese standard for KCIS vs ISF

    I know ISF has a longer teaching hours in Chinese than KCIS does. But, could any parents who have experiences in both schools shed some lights?

    many thanks

    KCIS is an English school with a Chinese component.
    ISF is an immersion school which teaches chinese at native level.
    They are very different and I have kids in both schools.

    Is it fair to say that ISF students have stronger Chinese literacy than KCIS ? I was told that KCIS students have high Chinese standard even compared with local schools , not to mention about other international schools . What grades are your kids in ISF and KCIS ? Have you compared your kids' Chinese home works in these two schools ?

    Absolutely. You should visit both schools and se the difference.

    Whoever told you that is mistaken. KCIS is a fine school but its an English school with limited hours of Chinese education.
