I just need a bit of advice on international schools in Istanbul.We are moving (back ) to Istanbul from Uk and looking for a good school for my yera2 ( will be year 3 next year) daughter.I know there is a school called British International school, but it is a bit pricey for us.I heard about that school in Asia region called KEYstone international school, just wondering if anyone has any experience with that school.Any help and advice would be most welcome.
I had a look at the British International School fees just to compare them with Keystone International School – it looks like Keystone's fees are significantly cheaper at around 11,000 USD a year compared to about 30,000 USD a year. Istanbul International Community School might also be an option at +- 17,000 USD a year.
Keystone seems to have a pretty good reputation from what I can gather. I found quite a useful forum post here (Keystone is specifically mentioned a few comments down) here, and there's also a useful discussion regarding Keystone here. There's quite a bit of content on the Keystone Facebook page that will also probably give you a good feel for what the school is like
Otherwise, if you still want to browse around a bit for other schools and take a look at other options, check out our page on International Schools in Istanbul – there are a number of reputable schools listed there.
Hope that helps, and best of luck for your move!
