My husband "may" have an opportunity in Hong Kong in the next few monthes...so we may be moving (from New Jersey, USA). If we go, we will likely be there for 3 to 5 years.
I've been looking at the American Intl School (Kowloon) and the Carmel School (Mid-Level area) for my kids. Kids will be starting 4th grade next school year. Does anyone have information about these schools (ie: academics, extracurricular, reputation, overall satisfaction, etc)
Those seem to be the only two choices for us, since my family is Jewish, and all of the other American style schools were Christian based....at least the ones that I saw online...If you know of any others (private, non-religious, American style schools), please let me know.
Anyway, I would also be interested in information concerning living near either of these schools. We would be interested in a "family" area, with other ex-pats and kids...clean air locations, modern apartment with approximately 2500+ sq. ft., all appliances (building ammenities nice also - pool, workout facility, etc). How much would something like this reasonably cost? I've seen the housing websites but also have seen forum postings saying the website prices are pretty inflated.
We will have a ex-pat package including housing (and school tuition for my kids), but I would like to know ahead of time what would be reasonable costs based on the above info, in case he needs to negotiate his package.
Thanks in advance,
