The history of the Diocesan Boys' School (DBS) - in 1869 - dates back to the very early days of Hong Kong. DBS's development has since been closely linked with that of Hong Kong. As Hong Kong emerged from a fishing village into "Asia's World City", the school has transformed from a small home and orphanage into one of the best schools in the region.
