Reykjavik - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Two international schools. Both are (barely) adequate for lower grades but think twice about middle school or up. Our kids were happy. Small classes means two or three grades are combined into a class of 10-12 students. Some very good teachers there but Reykjavík too small to have two high-quality schools. In a perfect worl,d they would merge. - Sep 2021

Two small schools. Families are happy now but contact CLO for current information. The higher grades are less adequate. - Nov 2017

The International School of Iceland is very small (10 kids in Grades 2-4 combined) and I have been very happy there. - Feb 2013

I don't have kids, but there is only one English speaking school, but only for kids up to about 12 years of age. This is not a good post for high school age children because there is no international school. - Jul 2011
