When you move to Beijing as an expatriate from overseas and you're bringing your family in-tow, one of the first questions you end up asking yourself is, "Where will my child go to school?"
The likely answer, of course, is an international school in Beijing. You're not, after all, going to put your son or daughter in a Chinese public school, right?
You want a familiar environment, and a Western education, and those
are things you simply won't find in an ordinary Chinese learning
institution - but you will
find in an international school.
But what exactly is an international school? How does it work? Which one should you choose, and why?
Those are the questions I address in today's article - your guide to finding your international school of choice, right here in Beijing.
