Centred in the community of Discovery Bay on the island of Lantau, the school derives much strength from its tranquil location and its surrounding active community. Establishing and maintaining strong, caring, respectful and supportive personal relationships is key to the DBIS ethos. Our approach allows DBIS’ outstanding teachers to work in tandem with supportive and aspirational parents in focusing upon the individual. It also allows students to concentrate on the challenging task of learning, growing and developing as individuals.
Our students enjoy a broad international curriculum with British characteristics and a distinctive learning journey that begins in Early Years (age 3-5), progresses to the Primary School (age 6-11) and culminates in the Secondary School (age 12-18). The DBIS student experience is characterised by a highly personalised learning environment, small class sizes, creative approaches to teaching and learning and a broad range of extra curricular activities.
Established in 1983 with an initial cohort of 3 students and 3 staff, the school now comprises over 40 different nationalities and nearly 1100 students and 185 staff located on three very well resourced campuses.
