The Primary Schools have out a book for Primary 6 kids. It lists all the schools, their entry mark levels, their ECA etc. Review that and see if you can apply for a transfer. However I would not despair, neighborhood schools have improved a lot since the MOE started transferring better teachers/leaders into them. The main issue with them is that there are no 'elite' kids there to socialize with and sometimes their ECA's choices are a bit limited.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.
