Jackson Wang of GOT7 fame came back to visit his alma mater, American International School of Hong Kong on the 18th of August, 2018.
Our student filmmaker, Rachel S. explores Jackson's history during his time at AIS in this short documentary.

The action was based on a special law on normalizing public education and prohibiting teaching ahead of the regular public curriculum. Under the government-set curriculum, English is taught from third grade.
