Which schools offer the IBDP in Hong Kong?

There are 30 international schools offering the IBDP. While some of these are IB continuum schools, others offer a choice of the UK, US, Australian, French or German curricula in the primary and middle years.

Hong Kong’s largest provider of English-medium international education, the English Schools Foundation (ESF), offers the IBDP at its five secondary schools and two all-through schools. The Canadian International School of Hong Kong CDNIS is the only school to offer a dual-diploma programme; senior students take both the IBDP and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

Nord Anglia International School, Hong Kong is due to start offering the IBDP from August 2019.
