    They are both English medium Primary school with very high standard of English requirements. (I think they are the top 10 primary school in HK)

    Another choice:
    St. Margaret's Co-educational English Secondary and Primary school 聖瑪嘉利男女中小學
    St. Margaret's Co-educational English Secondary & Primary School
    Around 20% of the students are non-Chinese.

    Where did you get that from? I've certainly never seen a SMCE student who was not Chinese.........and they do Chinese Language/History in Chinese, and expect all students to complete these subjects at HKCE/HK+ levels.

    Also - DGS and DBS will not admit non Chinese speaking/reading students for the same reason: they need all students to be competitive in Chinese Language/History at public exams

    I actually tutor some kids from these 'eilite' schools. For Marymount Primary School, a government subsidised school, actually take students who go through the central allocation system. That means, if you're living in the school zone, and you apply for one of these schools when your child is in K3, there is a chance your child gets placed into one of these schools. There's no need for interviews. If you want to get into a DSS school (a non-government subsidised one) then interviews are the go.

    As for a reputable local chinese school that takes in non-chinese speaking students at primary level, there isn't much of a choice, I'm afraid. You could try the EDB website
    (The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China |[email protected]?M?????S?O???F??F??) where they should have more info and contact numbers.
