Korean International School was granted land at Sai Wan Ho campus in 1992, and was incorporated in 1993. Original stakeholders included representatives from Korean community and Korean Consulate, who elected Board of Directors to oversee the welfare of the school.
Board of Directors were given power to appoint Committees to manage the school and various Committees were formed and dismantled as the school saw completion of building of first phase, and second phase. Most recent such committees are Building Committee to oversee extension phase of facilities due for completion by summer of 2013, and Fundraising Committee.
At KIS, there are two schools running two separate curriculums: Korean Section following Korean curriculum set by Ministry of Education of Republic of Korea, with the Principal appointed by the Ministry; and International Section which follows Cambridge International Program, with internationally appointed Principal and teaching staff. Both schools are open to all applicants residing in HK.
Given this duality, the Board appointed a Supervisor to head up Management Committee whose members include representatives from Korean community, Principals of both sections, PTA representatives from both sections, Chief Operating Officer representing school administration, and representative from Korean Consulate General.
Supporting the Board with day to day administration as well as long term planning, and responsibility for overseeing and supporting two sections in matters that relate to both sections is undertaken by Chief Operating Officer with a team of administration staff.
