If you have decided to move to Mallorca it’s really important to know that we have a good choice of internationals schools
The main difference between the international schools on the island is the language . he majority of these schools teach in English and follow the British curriculum, we have also a French school with a French cursus and also a German and Scandinavian college. If you would like your child to be educated in a second language, then obviously he/she needs to either start very young or already have a good knowledge of the language. It’s not a realistic think that your children can go to this kind of school after 12 years .
You should have a test at the entrance of the school to see the level of language , think that a lot of parents want those schools for they children so it’s quite normal to find a waiting list , be prudent and contact asap to be sure that it will be possible to find them a place where you want.
Most of the schools are around Palma area but it’s really interesting to know that we have now an international school in Manacor
