House of Knowledge International School

House of Knowledge International School (HoK) was established in Beijing in 2007. We believe that tomorrow’s leaders need an excellent foundation, cultivated in an international environment that is both caring and challenging. Our students are setting educational standards through an innovative curriculum and leaning methods designed to allow student’s to thrive and explore. The Early years program is the Reggio Emilia inspired curriculum, which engages our students in active learning, acquiring critical thinking and collaboration skills. The mission is to provide a hands-on child-centred approach towards learning, equipping our students with a solid educational foundation for a lifetime. HoK Elementary School strives to ensure our students have a high quality learning experience that is stimulating and as rigorous as possible. In the pursuit of creating a curriculum for internationally minded students, we have adopted the world-renowned International Primary Curriculum along with 40% Chinese National Curriculum to support our Chinese language and culture program. Emphasis is placed on meeting students at their academic, developmental and personal level in a multisensory, inquiry-based environment to educate and develop students into 21st Century learners.
