Santiago - Post Report Question and Answers

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

We have used a Montessori preschool (Mahay) and the big international school (Nido). The pandemic has been hard but in general we have been very happy with both schools. - Dec 2020

No experience yet, although I did inquire. Nido de Aguilas is the American School (and pretty much the only option is you want your kids to follow the US-based school calendar). Capital Assessment Fee is about US$14,000; annual tuition is around US$10,000. The social component of schooling your kids there runs about US$30,000 a year, I'd say. This is Beverly Hills High. - Jun 2019

Available, seems like they are great schools as far as what we've heard. Apparently Nido has a complicated admissions process to start early. - Nov 2014
