A reply from Anne Murphy, Education Consultant at ITS
Firstly, I am going to narrow down the options because the schools you have mentioned are a far reach, sadly.
Depending on the age of your children and the year group they will enter in August 2013 – there are some options on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.
I would definitely consider Island Christian Academy on Bridges Street near Mid-Levels. The school opened September 2013 and is very impressive. The teachers are very friendly and the Principal is very passionate and welcoming. The teacher/student ratio is low which is quite unique for Hong Kong.
Other schools that would be worth considering on Kowloon side: Anfield British School, Think International, Kingston International School, and Japanese International. The chances of getting a spot at the Japanese School is better for children in upper primary - and siblings always get priority.
Another option on Hong Kong side is The Harbour School. The school is currently located in Kennedy Town but may be moving to Stanley for the new Academic Year.
Some pre-schools such as Woodlands, Sunshine House, PIPS and Tutor Time have classes for children from 5-7 years. If you are keen to live in Tung Chung or Discovery Bay, you should also investigate Discovery Mind Primary School.
