Hi frens, my kid is attending K1 at KCIS and received FIS international steam reception offer for 2019/2020

We are hesitating between the two.

FIS international stream might have slightly better English environment (purely my guess) and IB result is not bad. It's a more diversified environment. Concerns are: 1) almost no Chinese; 2) French is compulsory, which might take up kid's capacity to learn Chinese; 3) heard some negative comments about its high school kids smoking etc.

KCIS, on the other hand, has a very local student body. ~90% Chinese. Chinese level is satisfactory yet IB results not very stable. Not sure how the university placement is, comparing to FIS.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be highly appreciated! Thank you!
