In a large commericial building which limits its potential and there are many thiefs in the area.

There are many social activities but at the high school level they get a bit intrusive. There is a parent teacher organisation.

For elementary education it is quite good and full of caring staff. For high school education forget it (Low standards, bullying, drug use etc)- there is a better school across from it named SIS (Shekou International School).
