Traffic and Safety
We work hard to make CDNIS a safe environment. Since there is no public parking at CDNIS and no parking along Nam Long Shan Road, we encourage students/parents to use the school bus. But if you do have to drive, please follow the directions of our security guards/police. LS students get dropped @ 9/F entrance, US students/taxis @ LLAC. Please note that all drivers must turn left when exiting the school roundabouts.
