Zurich's large expat population means it boasts a good selection of international schools. These are great for expats who only plan to be in the country for a short time and want their children to continue studying the national curriculum of their home country. Competition for places is stiff, fees are exorbitant and waiting lists are long. Most schools teach the International Baccalaureate curriculum, but some follow American, British or Japanese curricula.
