What is a DSS school?

For years, Hong Kong’s education landscape has been dominated by government schools and government-aided school. The emergence of DSS schools, which means those schools operate under the “direct subsidy scheme” (DSS) is precisely to echo the trend of offering diversity in education and to address the future needs bring about by dynamic society.

DSS schools are different from its counterparts in the sense that they enjoy more autonomy and flexibility in designing curriculum and determining school fees as well as entrance requirements.
