It is best if you arrange a pre- visit of the school in order to examine and make sure you’ll be able to easily access the school. You’d be surprised how many are excited to secure their place and forget about the commute. It is best to see if the school offers transport.

Most international schools advertise their origins, with a great many from nations such as the U.K., and U.S. This offers not only the chance to keep up with an equivalent curriculum, but also is likely to place them in a friendly, familiar environment with other international students.

Depending on the duration of your stay, it could best to ensure that your child won’t have to move schools after a year because their new school only covers grades 1-7.
