Visitors often acknowledge that DBIS is very different to other international schools in Hong Kong. Centred in the wonderful community of Discovery Bay on the beautiful island of Lantau, the school derives much strength from its tranquil location and its surrounding active community. Establishing and maintaining strong, caring, respectful, and supportive personal relationships is key to the DBIS ethos. Our approach allows DBIS’ teachers to work in tandem with supportive and aspirational parents in focusing upon the individual. It also allows students to concentrate on the challenging task of learning, growing, and developing as individuals.
We welcome and encourage new parents and students to visit the school and meet the staff and students where possible. Prospective students are required to sit an admissions assessment at the time of their visit although this can be arranged online at another time, if necessary. This involves a written component and interview.
An interview with all prospective students from Reception Year onwards and a written assessment of all students from Year 1 onwards is required prior to an offer of a place.
