Finding the right school abroad
So much depends on individuality that it’s hard to write a definitive guide to choosing a school. Each child is different; each country’s school system is different – even within the ‘generic’ international schools.

If possible, have a selection of schools to choose from. Naturally this will not always be possible because there just may not be any options.
We have put lots of articles together to kick start your search in the best kind of school for your expat child, as well as some ideas on how to choose a school overseas.
