The bottom line
An international school education is an expensive one and should be worth every cent. No matter how academic, sporty, technological or creative your child is, it’s the environment and people who will make the difference. School is where we learn not just to read and write, but also to socially interact and be a team player. This is not to say a state school education is any less than an international school, but in many countries limited funding, overcrowding and the lack of dedicated staff leave students at a disadvantage. As parents, we visit the schools, ask the right questions and get the statistics. But remember, the school that makes your child happy is the right school.
