ESF Kennedy School was established in 1961. The school occupies a pleasant location on the west of Hong Kong Island. It benefits from the use of the swimming and sporting facilities of the University of Hong Kong’s Stanley Ho Sports Centre, which is adjacent to the school. Music, performing arts and physical education are strengths of the school. A strong interest in environmental and ecological issues is also a theme of the learning.

We offer a high-quality, modern, liberal education based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) which is adapted to meet the needs of children living in Asia.

The school boasts a rich mix of nationalities and cultures among its 900 students. It received IB authorisation in December 2011 and had its tenth year evaluation visit in May 2020.

Occupying a pleasant location overlooking the South China Sea, the school has regular use of the adjacent Stanley Ho Sports Centre. All children receive regular swimming lessons in terms one and three. The school provides daily Chinese lessons for all students and also offers a very rich and varied extra-curricular programme.
