There is a wide choice of international schools and kindergartens, each with its own unique approach to education. Some schools offer an Internal Baccalaureate and General Certificate of Secondary Education. There are also schools that provide a non-English education (e.g. French, Japanese, German) that can help an expat student feel more at home.
