Open since 2017, Dalton School Hong Kong (DSHK) is a bilingual primary school for Hong Kong residents that offers parents a strong alternative to the ‘one size fits all’ mode of education.

Dalton School Hong Kong is a dual-language primary school that integrates the heritage of Chinese culture and traditions with the progressive Dalton Plan. This new school in Tai Kok Tsu is currently open from Years 1-2, and will roll out Years 3-4 from September 2019. Only PRs can apply.

Teaching is based on the Dalton Plan and US Common Core for English, and its strong Chinese programme has been developed by the Tsinghua University Primary School. Parents can expect an innovative learning environment here, where lessons follow the US-based Dalton Plan; based on the principles of freedom and cooperation, this mode of teaching gives children responsibility for their learning, and they instinctively seek the best way of achieving it.

Located inside the Imperial Cullinan residential development, the school has modern facilities including an indoor and covered play area, multi-purpose sports/ concert hall, library and learning space, Chinese literacy centre, drama/ dance/ art/ orchestra and music practice rooms, science and home economics (including a robotics room) and a professional development centre.

Annual tuition fees are HKD 181,500 and there’s an Annual Capital Levy of HKD 30,000.

A full review will be posted shortly.
