International Schools

Hong Kong has a cosmopolitan population, and the wide variety of international schools in the city reflects that, with schools following British, American, Canadian and Singaporean curriculums among others. In the 2022/23 school year, there are 54 international schools and 7 Private Independent Schools (PISs) offering non-local curriculum in Hong Kong according to the Education Bureau. Schools following the British curriculum include Kellett International School, which has locations in Pok Fu Lam and Kowloon Bay, and Harrow International School, which offers boarding from Year 6. Those wanting their children to receive an American education in the city can enrol at Stamford American School and the American International School. The Canadian curriculum is followed at DSC International School while the Singaporean International School is the only Singaporean overseas school recognised by the city state's Ministry of Education.

There are also options for French and German speakers, including the French International School for French and English instruction and the German Swiss International School, which offers German and English streams. For a good grounding in English and Mandarin, try The Chinese International School and Dalton School Hong Kong, which offer lessons in both languages.

Hong Kong also has the English Schools Foundation (ESF), which is made up of 22 schools. Offering kindergarten, primary and secondary, it's the largest English-medium international school organisation in Hong Kong.

There are 70 International Baccalaureate (IB) World schools in Hong Kong, with 36 authorised to offer the IB Diploma, a qualification recognised all over the world. These include the ESF schools, Hong Kong Academy and many of the international schools.
