International schools in Cape Town are a popular choice for expat parents looking to ensure continuity in their children’s education. Standards are generally high with teaching staff often including expatriates experienced in delivering the core curriculum of their home system.
A further advantage is the opportunity for expat children to form connections with children from diverse countries and backgrounds who nevertheless share the complex experience of being an expat child. Fees vary but are generally comparable to domestic private schools in Cape Town.
