Picking the best school is a complex choice. This is especially true when looking for a school in a new city or country. Whether you are looking for the first school for your child or the next school on their academic path, there are a thousand questions you want to answer before you can be sure you’ve picked the best school for your child.

You Need to Understand the Curriculum.
American Curriculum? British Curriculum? International Baccalaureate? There are so many curriculums to choose from it can often feel overwhelming when trying to decide which one is best. But we have collected information from some of the top schools in the world to help you understand the pros and cons of each system, so you can feel confident you’re making the right decision.

You Need to Understand the Extra-Curriculars.
But that what goes on in the classroom is only part of the selection process. Finding the best school also requires understanding the extra-curricular activities such as sports, the arts, or community involvement programs—as well as how these activities help prepare your child for success in university and beyond.

You Need to Understand the Community.
On top of all of these considerations, you want to find a school where your child will feel welcome and where they can make friends and develop strong social skills. But finding the right community doesn’t only benefit the student. Active parent-teacher associations, supportive expat communities, and opportunities to connect with other families can make the transition to a new school much easier for parents as well.
