Since public schools in Istanbul use Turkish as the language of tuition, most expat parents will choose to send their children to an international school. These schools follow a variety of curricula from various nations, and expat parents are therefore bound to find a school that fits their child's needs.

Below is a list of the most prominent international schools in the city.
