Perhaps surprisingly for a city of its size, Johannesburg is not home to an abundance of international schools. Many expat parents choose to send their children to local private schools, which are very highly regarded. For expats hoping to find a school that follows the same curriculum as back home, as well as the same teaching language, the choice may be limited.
