Three international schools in Hong Kong have been named in a list of the world’s top private institutions.
The honors, awarded by British magazine Spear’s and leading private education consultancy Carfax Education, went to Harrow International School Hong Kong, Hong Kong International School and Kellett School.
“We are delighted that, once again, Kellett has been recognized as one of the leading schools in Asia and the top 100 private schools in the world,” said Mark Steed, Principal and CEO of Kellett School, The Standard reported.
The list notes that Kellett school is “part of the heartbeat of the expat community” and that “all sixth-formers also do a mini-MBA as part of the curriculum.”
According to Carfax, the index featured schools according to their local and international reputation, academic results and preparation for university entry, among other factors.
Of the three Hong Kong schools, two—Harrow and Kellett—offer the British A-Level curriculum, while Hong Kong International School’s curriculum aligns with the United States.
The annual school fees for the three schools range from HK$171,220 (US$22,000) to HK$307,418 (US$39,500). (One of the schools, Harrow, offers boarding facilities.)
In Asia, the other private schools listed include Dulwich College Beijing in China and St Joseph’s Institution in Singapore.
