International Schools in Montreal

Given that education in Quebec is primarily in French, many expats choose to send their child to an English-medium private school or international school in Montreal.

While a significant number of the public schools in the city offer bilingual education, French is usually taught at first language level, which can be detrimental to older children who don't speak the language.

There is, however, a high level of competition for places at Montreal's international schools, especially in the lower grades, and expat kids may find themselves on a waiting list before they are able to enrol.
