Choosing an International School
International Schools are all very different. There are European International Schools, American International Schools, British International Schools and just plain old International Schools. They might be independent schools, church schools, grammar, or secondary schools. We can help you determine what International School is right for you and your children, or help you choose a new IB World School should your family need to relocate mid-way through the IB Diploma programme.
