The school's ethnically diverse student body is co-cultured in a combination of both Eastern and Western teaching styles. The school also includes students of socially diverse backgrounds.
The school was founded in the early 1980s, and had its first enrollees in September 1983. By 1987, the school had expanded its student body and was operating from two separate sites, one in the mid-levels, and the other in Causeway Bay (CB). More than 250 students up to primary 4 would be based at Eastern Hospital Road (CB), and a further 135 children would be on the Borrett Road site. The school later moved to the current unified location at Braemar Hill in the eastern mid-levels.
