Supporting the Mission requires many things, including the spaces where learning and teaching take place. Curiosity that leads to learning starts with facilities that welcome individual exploration.

Classrooms that support children’s wellbeing. Labs that enable learning by doing, and which encourage trial, error, experimentation, and reflection. Playgrounds and activity spaces where children find and push past barriers. They learn how sharing and working together is not just fun, but fellowship. Capital Giving makes all these spaces possible. Support the spaces that make the mission possible with a Capital gift.

Re-imaging the HKIS Educational Experience

In the 2010s, the school undertook a Herculean effort to reimagine the Repulse Bay campus, turning the location into a purpose-designed and -built home for world-class primary education.

Now, HKIS turns its attention to the secondary program and its campus at Tai Tam. The Tai Tam campus will become a physical manifestation of the “one school, two campuses” strategy that drives HKIS into the heart of the 21st century. The Tai Tam capital projects will add to and renovate the middle school and high school facilities. The overarching objective is to align them with the secondary program’s academic program goals and co-curricular goals.

The impact of these capital projects serves to create a “new front door” for Tai Tam, rather than the separate entrances for the Middle and High School facilities. This radical re-imagination of existing buildings along with new facilities will reflect the programmatic move toward a continuum in secondary education. Learning will span Grades 6 through 12, creating greater opportunities for students to own their personal learning journey and push the boundaries of what’s possible in their education. 

Your Tai Tam Opportunities

The Student Activity Center—the first project—will open in the 2024-25 academic year, thanks in large part to the vision of the all-volunteer Board of Managers, executive leadership, faculty, staff, and the broader parent and alumni community. This facility would not be possible without visionary parents and alumni who contributed philanthropically to funding the design and construction of this innovative, one-of-a-kind facility.
