Join Us

DSHK welcomes your interest to be part of our talented, child-focused and professional team of staff and faculty.  

At Dalton, we strive to follow the footsteps of the originator of the Dalton Plan, Helen Parkhurst, to break the teacher-centered lockstep teaching. We realize “experience is the best and indeed the real teacher”.   The school has to provide for sufficient experience and this cannot be achieved by keeping students as passive recipients.  Our teachers will be nurtured and trained to guide our students to carry out their work, sometimes do it undisturbed and with commitment and concentration; other times in collaboration. Mastery, self-pacing and self-direction is our goal. Parkhurst was one of the most influential educators of her era, and the Dalton Plan became a model for countless schools throughout the world. 

DSHK continually works to attract exemplary teachers who are excited by our beliefs and mission, along with a passion and enthusiasm for students and their success.

Key Beliefs

At DSHK we believe: 

  • the child should be the center of education;
  • in educating our students for tomorrow, not for yesterday;
  • bilingual and bi-literate Putonghua and English capabilities are of critical importance;
  • in Chinese virtues and values, combined with a multi-cultural perspective;
  • in collaborating with and serving our staff, families, alumni, the Hong Kong community and the global community.

Teaching at DSHK

Following the Dalton plan, a core belief at DSHK is that all students have the capacity to learn, and by trusting in students’ intelligence, there is no limit to what a child can do.  

Hence, we believe strongly on the relationships between teachers and students.  

With a student teacher ratio of 5:1, Every faculty member is responsible for deeply understanding each child and his/her interest, strengths, fears, challenges, families..etc. By knowing our students we are able to tailor instruction to best support each individual child’s trajectory. The school strives to maintain an ethnically and culturally diverse staff to complement both its mission and character.
