International Schools in Spain [The Complete Guide]

International Schools in Spain

If you are thinking of sending your children to an international school in Spain, then this guide is for you. Expats have a diverse range of international schools to choose from, with the majority of these schools located in coastal areas or the capital of Spain, Madrid.

Many people search for the best international schools in Spain, but the range of private international schools in Spain go from English-taught, British or American schools that teach in French, German, Swedish and even Japanese so we feel it is best to let everyone decide for themselves what is the “best” school in Spain so we list below a complete guide to all international schools.

Depending on the school, you will find the teaching leads to British GCSE or A-level qualifications, American High School Diploma (including SAT college entrance examinations) or the International Baccalaureate (IB). Most of these schools operate on a Monday to Friday schedule.

Although most international schools are private, some also following a bilingual (English/Spanish) curriculum and are partially subsidized by the government.

If you are new to Spain and want to send your child to an international school, most parents would take the route of a private international school.

To assist you in your research, we have put together a list of international schools for expats in Spain.
