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

Several options, main ones used are QSI and British International. - Jun 22, 2017
Many. American, British, German, French... - Feb 11, 2017
There are international schools -- many expat kids go to the British International School, QSI or the Cambridge School. Each of the three English schools has pluses and minuses. They are expensive, so they tend to draw wealthy locals. Some expats also attend the French International School. QSI is the only school with an American curriculum but the facilities are not as nice as those at the other schools and the classes tend to be very small. All of the schools have extra-curricular activities. The sports associated with the international schools tend to be more like club sports -- Slovak and expats kids often go outside the schools for more serious sports instruction. - Sep 19, 2016
There are two international schools - a QSI American curriculum school and the British International School of Bratislava (BISB). My child is only 10 months old, so I have no experience with either, but it seems like more Embassy kids go to BISB. - Jun 23, 2015
I don't have children, but I did not hear many complaints. - Apr 7, 2010
