As a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), Kirwan State High is committed to developing its students as citizens of the world.
In 2017, the school introduced its Global Leadership Academy for aspirational and inquisitive students in Year 7. Throughout Years 7–10, participating students will undertake extensive leadership training in cross-cultural skills, understanding international issues, and socially conscious leadership for positive change, preparing them to be young leaders of tomorrow.
A modified version of the Human Technologies Curriculum is one of six compulsory core subjects delivered through the academy. Developed by the International College of Hong Kong, this subject offers students a toolkit for becoming better human beings in an ever-changing world.
