Educational advice

Choosing a school
The school choice when you move abroad is a paramount decision. School affects whether your children make friends, learn successfully, are prepared for the next phase of education (for example re-entry upon repatriation, going on to university), and ultimately whether they are happy in their new environment.
Schools often become the primary source of social connections for the family, at least initially, and therefore must provide a comfortable community for everyone.

Before starting the process of searching the top schools in the area of your choice, ask yourself if that is the kind of school your child will have more chances to prosper and be happy at.
One important point to start from is to gain knowledge of the school ethos, academics, facilities, level of parent participation and support given by the school outside classroom. All this information should be available on the school’s website as well as in reference books
