Discovery Montessori Academy is the first and only registered international school in Hong Kong to offer a combined Montessori and International Baccalaureate (IB) education.
Located on the waterfront in Lantau Island, Discovery Montessori Academy (DMA) is a bilingual school offering a combined Montessori and International Baccalaureate (IB) education. Open from pre-school to Year 6, this small primary school in Discovery Bay offers a fully immersive bilingual curriculum in English and Mandarin.
The primary curriculum for children aged six to 12 years combines the IB's Primary Years Programme with international Montessori methods of teaching; learning for 3-6 year olds in the pre-school follows the Montessori programme.
This is a small school that's part of the Discovery Montessori Schools (DMS) group, which has a total of 500 international students across its three campuses. The DMS family also includes DMS pre-schools in the Central district and Discovery Bay, both for children aged one to six years.
All three campuses are staffed by more than 70 qualified and experienced Montessori teachers and staff, and each school is equipped with Montessori classrooms and equipment. Under the IB PYP and Montessori programmes, the following subjects are taught: biology (science), geography, history, English language, maths, art, music and PE. DMA offers bilingual immersion in Mandarin, with a Mandarin teacher present during each three-hour work cycle as part of the curriculum.
