With a diverse expat community, there are many international schools in Oman. Expats will find that most of these are based in the capital, Muscat, and follow the British, American or International Baccalaureate curriculum, along with the Omani national curriculum.

International schools are a great way for expat children to settle into their new home with a familiar education system and many offer bilingual learning opportunities. A high price tag comes with these schools, so parents must budget wisely.

Below is a list of recommended international schools in Oman.
