Schools - Primary

Securing a place at a primary school in Hong Kong is, perhaps, one of the most challenging obstacles you will encounter in your relocation to the city, and will impact your choice of residential area and more. With a large number of children applying for limited school places, you will probably find this a somewhat tiresome endeavour. Don't despair however, you just need a little patience and perseverance.

International Primary Schools
International schools in Hong Kong are academically highly regarded, and further offer great facilities and extra-curricular opportunities for your child. School fees are expensive, and often international schools require that you purchase a debenture upon the child's acceptance to the school. The debenture secures the child's place and funds the schools maintenance and running expenses. The debenture, but not the interest on the investment, is reimbursed after the child leaves the school. The German Swiss International School is pictured left.
