Located in the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, Delia School of Canada (DSC)'s Taikoo Shing campus teaches Canada's Ontario and Alberta programmes to primary and secondary students.

Delia School of Canada (DSC) delivers an early learning, elementary, and secondary education to students from nursery through to Grade 12. Teaching integrates the Canadian and Hong Kong curricula, making it popular with local and expat students alike. 

This school is not merely offering a Canadian education, but specifically the curricula of the Ontario provinces. For any Canadian expats in Hong Kong, this school is obviously an ideal choice, enabling your child to filter back into the Canadian educational system seamlessly upon returning to your homeland. Other parents may be drawn to the attractiveness of the Ontario curriculum.

In the school’s own words:

"We offer a curriculum that is globally recognized for quality and which concentrates on an innovative set of skills - including advanced problem-solving and digital literacy – which today’s students require for success."

Currently students have the choice of studying the Ontario programme from elementary through to Grade 12 or the Alberta programme from Grades 1 to 9. DSC plans to move its Alberta programme to a sister campus in Kowloon, and it is currently waiting approval from the Education Bureau.

Students who follow the Ontario curriculum can enrol in the high school programme and work towards credits for the Ontario Secondary School Diplomas, which is widely recognised by universities overseas. DSC graduates have received acceptances from universities across the world, including the University of California, Los Angeles, New York University, and Columbia University in the US; the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia in Canada; London School of Economics and the University of Edinburgh in the UK; as well as other world-renowned universities in Asia including the University of Tokyo, Waseda University, the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Tsinghua University.

DSC currently enrols students from over 45 nationalities, and the school's multicultural environment encourages students to learn and use English on a daily basis, as well as learn about different cultures.

DSC offers three international language options: French, Japanese, and Putonghua. ESL Programs are also available for students with limited English.

At DSC, more than 90% of the teachers are Canadian teachers registered with the Ontario College of Teachers, which licenses, governs, and regulates Ontario’s teaching profession in the public interest.
