The all-through Hong Kong Academy is one of only six international schools in Hong Kong to offer three IB programmes. It’s a school that talks a lot about having a “personal, individualised approach to education and an engaged, close-knit community” – and this is certainly supported by its low teacher to student ratio of 1:6 here. In high school, students have the option to study for the Global Citizen Diploma (GCD) alongside the IBDP; this high school certificate programme focuses on students’ development as global leaders.

HKA stands out in the Hong Kong education sector for its offering of learning support to gifted students and those with autism, ADHD, dyslexia and other learning needs within the mainstream classroom. Between 10% to 15% of HKA students receive some level of learner support, ranging from mild to intensive, and the school is equipped to deliver a top-level SEN education at its Learner Support Centre with a speech lab and pull-out rooms integrated into the classroom areas.

What the school says: “Small class sizes and low student teacher ratio allow for maximum flexibility in meeting student’s needs and provide a broad base for social interaction. As children grow, increasing scope and complexity are built into the curriculum to ensure that individual developmental needs are met and that children are challenged and stretched in their learning.”
