School Directions

HCIS shares the same distinguished heritage and rich 100-year history of the Hwa Chong family. Premised on the same belief as our founders had in 1919, that education paves the way for the betterment of the individual and society, HCIS places a premium on developing and nurturing students from Singapore and across the world to become active global citizens. Drawing our inspiration from our school motto ‘自强不息‘, we are committed to offering a unique paradigm for learning that nurtures students into independent, innovative and internationalised individuals prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
