School districts are a group of formal learning institutions that any country has. There are also subsidised schools (which are the majority in Hong Kong and many of which are run by religious organisations), ” Direct Subsidy Scheme ” schools, private schools and international schools in Hong Kong.

Public schools are organized to serve as many students as possible. Cafeterias that double as auditoriums are nothing new, but some schools have created extra large foyers that double as extra space at lunch time, taking pressure off over-crowded cafeterias.
The K-8 format is also an emerging popular concept in which students may attend only two schools for all of their K-12 education. As long as your local school district has been showing through testing that it meets the requirements set by the state (which most do) you can feel comfortable sending your child to public school.
