Visitors often acknowledge that DBIS is very different to other international schools in Hong Kong. Centred in the wonderful community of Discovery Bay on the beautiful island of Lantau, the school derives much strength from its tranquil location and its surrounding active community.

We are a non selective school that provides the highest quality education for all. We are focused on delivering personalised learning experiences for each student to ensure all individuals reach their potential. Further to this, we provide students with a wide range of opportunities academically and outside of the classroom. Our extra curricular provision is extensive and our students thrive in following their own interests.
An additional strength is our cultural and our school welcomes students from all over the world.
