Founded in 2000, HKMA David Li Kwok Po College is a semi-private
co-educational secondary school in Hong Kong offering classes at
Junior Secondary (S.1-3), Senior Secondary (S.4-5), and Advanced
Level (S.6-7). It operates under the Direct Subsidy Scheme which
allows the school to charge fees whilst receiving recurrent government
grants based on enrolment. The school is empowered to design its
own curriculum, set its admission criteria and recruit teachers
according to its own policies. The College uses English as the medium
of instruction, except in Chinese Language and French Language lessons.
Students are entered for two local examinations at the end of S.5
and S.7. These are the HKCE and the HKAL examinations. It is envisaged
that the current curriculum structure will change as Hong Kong migrates
towards a six-year secondary programme with only one exit examination.
It will seek authorization to offer the IB Diploma.
The College is built with a modern infrastructure that includes
a number of fully-resourced and properly staffed facilities such
as science laboratories, specialist rooms, computer-resource rooms,
a lecture theatre, a dance studio, a fully independent English Learning
Centre, and an assembly hall. All classrooms are equipped with computer
projectors and have access to a wireless network. The College expects
its students to be bilingual (English and Chinese), be proud of
their cultural heritage while having an international outlook, and
strives to educate its students to be confident and expressive individuals
who possess an awareness of global and local civic issues. With
such an aim, the HKMA David Li Kwok Po College recruits quality
teachers locally as well as from the international community. Students
at the HKMA David Li Kwok Po College also enjoy a wide range of
extra-curricular activities, numbering some forty choices. Some
of these are not often provided in other local schools. The College
believes in creating as supportive a learning environment as possible.
There is a dual class teacher pastoral system, have the services
of a qualified educational psychologist, have initiated a schoolwide
reading programme (D.E.A.R.), a House system and an active parent
association. Admission to the HKMA David Li Kwok Po College is by
