What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?
This varies by family. The public schools offer French immersion and regular Canadian curriculua. Families do both public and private here. When researching, look up: Halifax Grammar School, Armbrae Acadamy, The Maritime Muslim Academy, Sacred Heart, Shambhala School of Halifax, the Halifax Independent School, . I have not heard of what special needs requirements are available at any of the schools. Each school has different areas of strength. The private school where we attend has an after school program, but my children are teenagers, so we do not use the childcare. - Sep 2020
No real international schools, but some good private and public schools up to US standards. - May 2018
