What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

There are international schools but USG does not allow employees to bring children to this post, with good reason. - Jun 18, 2014
There is an international school but, needless to say, most people don't have kids with them. No dependents for USG personnel. - Aug 2, 2010
No kids allowed at post. Spouses are only allowed if the embassy is willing to hire them as EFMs. - Jul 10, 2010
Embassy staff don't bring children to this assignment. - Sep 7, 2009
