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

No personal experience. People generally use the Belgian or the French school. - Aug 20, 2015
I do not have children, but as far as I know there are no Int'l Schools in English here. - Aug 8, 2009
I do not have children but Iíve toured 3 of the schools used by expats here: an English Christian school, the Belgian school, and a Montessori school. The English school is the only one in the city that teaches in all English, the others are in French. They seem great for younger children but many people question the quality of education beyond primary school. The Belgian seems to be the best for secondary education, but itís all in French. - Oct 30, 2008
