A guide to selecting the right school abroad for your child

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the hardest decisions you’ll make as a parent when relocating overseas.

  • Do you go for an international school or a local school? 
  • Which international school system?
  • Will the language barrier be too much if you choose a local school?
  • Perhaps home-schooling would be better all round? But did you know that home education is actually illegal in some countries?
  • What about your child’s future? Will you be moving back home at some point, or will you be moving to another country? Do you even know yet?!

Perhaps it would be best just to send them to the school that all the other expats go to? After all, it’s all about the experience of living abroad, isn’t it? All schools are the basically the same anyway…

There are many education options around for expats, and so much depends on your individual family set-up and child that there is no ‘one-school-fits-all’ solution. Each child is different and each country’s school system is different, even within the ‘generic’ international schools. Also, families differ in their requirements and aspirations, and even relocations vary greatly. What worked well for you all in one country won’t necessarily be replicated in your next move.

It's easy to get very stressed at this point. Don't panic! I’ve put together this eBook to help you kick-start your search for the best type of school for your child.

There are many considerations and details you need to brainstorm, so I’ve detailed them in this eBook for you. I also include a list of questions you may find useful to ask when you have narrowed down your school choice. You'll get a great insight into just what is involved in making the right choice for your family,

Choosing a school for your expat child can be a trial and it all boils down to a very personal decision. A decision that, as parents, we can only hope is for the best.
