Our girls attend Marymount International School and they love it. I like the fact that the school is small, the children wear uniforms (a great equalizer), and the location is very serene. Marymount offers a very nurturing environment and a strong arts program. My girls are always excited to go to school and that speaks volumes. - Sep 2010

No personal experiences, but there is a fair variety. Some people with younger kids put them in French public schools. - Apr 2009

I have no personal experience with the international schools, but the CLO's office at the Embassy can provide details. You do have to do a lot of research on your own about the schools and register far in advance to guarantee a spot at the school of your choice. Most Embassy employees send their kids to the American International school, Marymount, or the British school. - Jun 2008
