Top Schools is for you if you are a parent in Hong Kong wanting the best education for your children, yet find the process of searching for information confusing, frustrating and stressful.
Where schools own websites often lack consistency and transparency, we make it easy to search, compare and share accurate, up-to-date information on schools and save a lot of time and worry.
Top Schools is unique in HK in that we provide extensive, solid factual information to balance our opinions and those of our members.
Our school profiles are based on our research, visits to the schools and parent, teacher and student interviews. Many school profiles are verified by the schools directly and they have the authority to edit and update all content, except the initial description which remains impartial and is written by Top Schools staff.
We guide parents through a confusing array of opinions, providing honest, unbiased advice on the probability of acceptance for immediate arrival and the following years. Planning viable alternative options, including an interim placement, local school or a school providing additional support for ESL, or other individual learning needs is at the core of what we do.
We understand that the “perfect school” doesn’t exist, so we look to match family and school, based on their priorities. If a compromise is necessary, we advise on where, when and how this should happen with the family’s best interests and mid, or even, long-term goals in mind.
We get to know each of our families well and understand their preferences as well as their child’s academic, emotional and social needs. From there, we manage expectations throughout the process with one dedicated consultant. We can modify a plan at any stage to suit changing preferences and expectations.
Our senior consultants are all parents too and we’ve been through the process. Between us, we have – or had – our own children in seven of Hong Kong’s top schools.
