Expat families have a relatively small selection of international schools to choose from in Uzbekistan. Most are located in the capital city, Tashkent. The British system, including the Cambridge IGCSE and A-Levels, is the most commonly taught curriculum throughout these schools. A handful of other schools offer alternatives such as the French or American systems.
International schools can often ease the transition of moving to a new country, as expat children will be around those who have had similar experiences. In addition, international schools are the only schools in Uzbekistan with English as their main teaching language.
Below is a list of international schools in Uzbekistan.
