International Schools in Barcelona

There is an assortment of bilingual and international schools in Barcelona. In fact, international educational standards are so commonplace that many of the schools that teach British and American curricula have a student body predominantly made up of Spanish pupils.

International schools in Spain are obliged by law to teach either Spanish or a co-official regional language. In Catalonia, international schools will teach both Spanish and Catalan, as well as give additional focus to local content in subjects such as history and geography.
