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.

International schools are significantly steeper cost-wise, so that is something to consider. Most local schools provide a decent education, it’s just that with most of the schools with lower cut-offs they tend to receive less funding and resources. Hence subject choices and CCAs are more limited as compared to the more elite schools. Still not a bad choice though, for the most part.
