This is a really nice school. it makes students improve their different skills in many ways. teachers are professional and they provides great opportunities for students to experience many activities. Students can all learn a lot because there are multiple routines for them to follow.
Updating original review. We sent 3 kids here for elementary school,we only left because we left HK. This is a very good school, it is small under 300 students so it has a very good sense of community. I estimate the capacity is 400 so it will always be a smaller school. Excellent teacher to student ratio. Curriculum is very modern, 3rd graders are starting to give oral presentations which is a real world skill, excellent! Lots of STEM/STEAM. Some teachers emphasize digital teaching while others are old fashioned pencil/paper so there is some inconsistency. Heavy emphasis on Chinese studies but beginner levels available. Facilities are adequate, nothing special. Highly recommend this school even if it may not have the history and reputation in HK. One caveat is that the high school is just starting. PE, music and art are all given equal attention. Good library. Parents can be heavily involved or none whatsoever. Some schools in HK license the name of famous boarding schools in the UK, then charge alot, whether they have the same quality is highly doubtful. This school delivers great quality at a very fair prices so student rention rate is quite high.
ASHK is a school founded in 2015, with excellent top-notch teachers, ASHK provides opportunities for all types of students with varying interests having a wide range of extracurricular activities as such; basketball, Chinese painting, debate club, STEAM Robotics, Battle of books (etcetera). When it comes to academics, ASHK makes sure students are learning quality information whilst having fun. In spite of being a new school, the facilities here are some of the best compared to other schools in hong kong. I decided to join ASHK in 4th grade and it was the best decision i've ever made, looking forward to the rest of the school years I get to enjoy here :D
