International Schools in Chicago

Steeped in a strong history of immigration, Chicago has a large foreign-born population that continues to flourish today. As a result, many international schools have been opened in the Chicago area. Expat families, especially those who don't plan on living in Chicago permanently, often prefer to send their children to international schools rather than local schools. These schools teach curricula from around the world, often in the home language of their sponsoring country.

International schools are a great way meet other expat families with a similar background. Though international schools can be expensive, they usually offer a correspondingly high quality of education.

Here are some of Chicago's most prominent international schools.
