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

We sent our kids to an international preschool, but the QSI school (which accepts money from the Embassy) was pretty well regarded. It had small classes, decent instruction and good after-school options. - Feb 14, 2017
I do not know much about the international school, my kids are grown and gone. Others seem happy enough. - May 1, 2016
QSI and the Georgian British Academy. We had two boys at the QSI and we were pretty happy with the teachers. We had friends that worked at the Georgian British Academy, which was becoming an up and coming choice. By the time we left, there was shift starting towards GBA. - Jul 17, 2014
Most American families send their kids to QSI in Zurgovani; the New School (which offers IB), and theFrench and British schools are also options. - Oct 31, 2011
There are a couple schools to choose from, Quality School International, French School & New School. - Sep 24, 2011
None yet, but most people recommend the French school, the German school, or QSI (the American school). QSI is so expensive that almost no Georgians go there, so it's probably best to send your children to the French school where they learn French, English and Georgian, and also have your kids mingle with other Georgians as well as foreigners. - Apr 27, 2011
QSI is the school attended by many embassy kids. Education and management are good. It's closest to the embassy. The New School is attended by those who don't want to follow the crowd. New School is certified in the International Baccalaureate program and costs significantly less than QSI.I prefer New School for my child. - Jun 9, 2010
QSI is a decent school but pretty small. Good student-to-teacher ratio, but recruiting maybe a challenge for them, so some teachers are better than others. - Oct 12, 2009
I saw the new QSI school being built--decent construction standards. - Jan 27, 2009
