Many younger families are coming to live in Spain and looking at the various ways of
educating their children.

There are basically two options:

registering your child in the Spanish state school system

registering your child at an
international school

The choice between an ‘international’ education and the Spanish state system is a matter of personal taste.

The
ages of the children may be a factor to consider. Children attending a local state school will be taught totally in Castilian Spanish, or the local dialect (e.g. Valencian).

Therefore younger children find it
much easier to adapt to being thrust into the system than those approaching or within the secondary school age.

In areas where there are many foreigners it is likely that there will be other English-speaking children in local state schools who will help translate.
